The Old Masters is a Grade II Victorian property built in 1852 to house the ‘Master and Matron’ of the Lymington Infirmary. It is set in secluded, landscaped gardens and is less than five minutes walk from the high street of the Georgian market town of Lymington with its Saturday market and good range of shops, cafes and pubs.

With everything designed to make your stay uber comfy and homely we look forward to welcoming you to the Old Masters House. This quirky historic grade 2 listed house is all set up for 8 people to eat, relax and sleep in comfort. The bedrooms have top quality white Egyptian bed linen. The two top floor bedrooms can either be twins or large double beds. Highchairs and travel cots available.

The lounge has an open fire and ample seating. The kitchen is well stocked with oodles of glasses and crockery, dishwasher and plenty of bigger pans for larger group cooking. The store cupboard is well stocked with cook’s staples like decent oils, spices, range of teas and baking ingredients so you can just come and crack on with looking after your guests.

Outdoors there is a large, secluded, fully enclosed garden with outdoor table and 8 chairs, sun loungers and charcoal BBQ. We are happy to welcome well behaved dogs and ask that they stay downstairs and off the furniture. We do not accept hen party or stag party groups.

Check in from 3pm. Check out by 10am.

Quirks of the house: The top floor bedrooms and wet room have sloping ceilings so would not suit very tall people. The stairs are wide and gentle so ideal for older people and small children. We don’t like wardrobes so there are very few of those but plenty of hanging spaces on the back of doors and on coat racks etc. The house is set back and screened from a busy road. It is a town centre property not a rural retreat.

Great for off road cycle rides, pony treks and rambles with plenty of beauty spots including Burley, Brockenhurst and Beaulieu to have a cream tea or a pub lunch en route. The Isle of Wight makes a great day trip on the ferry. For sailing enthusisats there is plenty of scope in Lymington.

Property Reviews

Aug 9th 2020

We had a brilliant week in The Old Masters House. It was the best holiday house that we have ever stayed in. It had everything we could possibly need and much more and best of all it was super clean. We also made good use of the lovely enclosed gardens.

July 2020

We have just returned from a fantastic stay at this beautiful house. A few minutes walk from the centre of lovely Lymington, we couldn’t have been more impressed with the quality of this accommodation. There is so much to do in this area but the garden is so lovely that we could happily have stayed at home and enjoyed all that it had to offer. Thoroughly recommended.
