Why Move to Lymington?
A quaint Georgian market town on the South Coast of the UK, Lymington has been one of the area’s most sought after locations for many years, regularly topping the best place to live charts. The town’s roots stretch as far back as the 6th Century BC. Over the centuries, the village steadily grew, and in the 13th century the town was given its market charter.
It is difficult to imagine this gentrified location was once a place where smugglers attempted to land their contraband. It is believed that they were responsible for building the tunnels between the town quay and the old inns on the High Street. Nowadays it offers those who live here a very good quality of life indeed. It is not just Lymington’s visually appealing high street lined by some great independents, or its winding cobble streets which sweep down to the little harbour that makes it so attractive on the eye, but it is its location to the New Forest National Park which really makes its special, not to mention expensive.
Although naturally, Waitrose and M&S have a presence on the high street, there is also a small Tesco too. But it is the little independents which make shopping a pleasure here.
You can find most things from children’s, ladies, and men’s clothes, to farm shops, hardware, and florists, so leaving to shop elsewhere is not necessary most of the time.
Getting here is easy by road as the A337 road links Lymington to Lyndhurst and the M27 motorway to the north. There are two rail stations, Lymington Pier (the terminus), Lymington Town. Connected to the national rail network by a branch line to Brockenhurst, services twice an hour are operated by Southwestern Railway.
Living in Lymington also offers a direct ferry service to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. The service runs about once an hour from a dock south-east of the old town on the far side of the Lymington River. Ideal for a day trip or a holiday break. The town may be small by UK standards, however, it has absolutely everything you could possibly wish for and more in order to live your best life; character, position, personal safety and general lifestyle, no wonder it is such a highly prized location in which to reside.
Lymington Schools & Education
Undoubtedly you will want to find a suitable school, one that’s ideal for your child, with great teaching and possibly good facilities to match.
It’s no secret that many families relocate to Lymington due to its schools with performance tables indicating that the town’s local schools perform well.
There are some “outstanding” primaries such as Lymington Church of England Infant School and St Luke’s Church of England Primary School alongside plenty of Ofsted rated “good” schools.
Most state educated students fall into the catchment area of Priestlands School. A mainstream, senior school for boys and girls. It is highly successful with very good examination results, an excellent range of extra-curricular activities and a strong ethos of good behaviour.
Within a four-mile radius there are 5 private schools to choose from educating children between 2-19 years.
Things to do in Lymington
All year round there is something to do, see and experience in the Lymington area.
The Solent Way walking route runs from the local Yacht Haven all the way to Hurst Point at Milford on Sea and is easy walking pretty much all the way although you’ll need to set aside more than half an hour to do it.
Lymington is surrounded by the beautiful countryside of the New Forest National Park, where opportunities for outdoor activities are abundant.
The National Park is approximately 150 square miles in size and was once a royal hunting ground for King William I and his noblemen, in the 12th century AD. Now home to herds of wild ponies, cows and pigs it is a beautiful location for exploring the wooded areas. Lakes and picnic spots are ideal for spending the whole day here.

The high average cost of buying a home here does not deter buyers, on the contrary, it has a busy property scene.
One thing the town provides is character homes in abundance; it is what makes it so special. Georgian cottages on Captain’s Row and Nelson Place, and Edwardian, mid-century and remodelled family homes on leafy avenues and close between the marinas and High Street.
The town even caters for those searching for a new property as recent developments have sprung up along the Lymington Shore area.
So how much exactly do you have to pay for a home here?
The one and two-bed properties dominate the market, taking up half of the available stock, many of these are retirement homes.
One-bedroom homes for those over 55 are on sale from £94,000 up to £250,000. Non-retirement apartments are priced from £219,000.
You can expect to pay from £400,000 for a 3-bed, and £495,000 for a 4-bed property.
