The nearest shop to the cottage is One Stop with its post office and Tesco Metro – they are less than ½ miles walk, here you can stop up on the essentials – milk, bacon, fresh bread, croissants and your morning paper. There is also a fish and chip shop, a chemist and a mobility shop in the village. The nearest Indian and Chinese takeaway is at the end of South Street and there is a Dominos Pizza in Lymington which offers delivery – as well as lots of pubs and restaurants within a 5 mile radius – it is worth checking out – Six Bells Wetherspoons on Lymington High Street, The Ship on Lymington Quay, The Walhampton Arms just outside Lymington, The Royal Oak at Downton, or for coffee – the Beachcomber Café at Barton, Mabels Café at Shallowmead Nursery, Otters Nursery, both in Lymington and the Avon Beach Café at Highcliffe are well worth discovering.
