Set in one of the UK’s most delightful locations

A panoramic, uninterrupted view out across the Solent, as far east as the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth (on a very clear day!) right along the northern face of the Isle of Wight, with Yarmouth in the distance and the rolling hills of Tennyson Down.

Sit back and watch the Isle of Wight ferry trundling in and out of Lymington’s River, sail boats racing across the Solent or motor launches heading out towards The Needles.

There’s always something to see at The Haven!



From dog walkers and sailors, to shoppers, ramblers, swimmers and mini-adventurers, Lymington has something for everyone.

From the dog-friendly sea wall which wraps around the marina, accessible via public footpath from our car park, out to and beyond Lymington & Keyhaven’s Nature Reserve - a firm favourite for birders and photographers – you’ll find an abundance of beautiful scenery to explore.


If it’s retail therapy you crave, there’s Lymington High Street with its traditional Saturday market, an array of lovely independent boutiques, cafes, chandleries and high street names.


For swimmers and mini adventurers we’re just minutes from Lymington’s renowned Open Air Sea Water baths - open daily during the summer months - with its 200 metres of inflatable obstacle courses, paddle boards and refreshment kiosk.

Come and swim or jump about in the UK’s oldest and largest sea water swimming pool! Measuring 117m x 50m there’s plenty of room for family friendly fun in a fully life guarded environment.
