We often get asked to recommend places to stay nearby Jaunt-ebikes HQ in our lovely coastal villages of Keyhaven and Milford on Sea.  So, we’ve put pen to paper (or is that finger to keyboard?) and compiled a little list of our favourite places to stay based on our local experience and knowledge.  All opinions are just our own, and totally unbiased. Absolutely nobody is paying us for our opinion - we are just freely offering it!


We are really spolit for choice for holiday accomodation in our lovely little corner of the New Forest National Park and no doubt there are lots and lots of other lovely places to stay, so do let us know if you’ve had some great experiences elsewhere. It’s always good to know and we love to champion other brilliant local businesses.


Here we go, in no particular order as they all offer something different and are all smashers. Five stars to all!

Our list of the top best places to stay on holiday in Milford on Sea & Keyhaven.....

Southlawns Hotel – lovely family-run hotel on the edge of the village with oodles of free parking and EV chargers. The do a cracking breakfast and a lovely Sunday roast. Super dog friendly – pooches even have their own area of the restaurant!! Excellent value and very popular.


Lazy Lion – lovely, authentic old English pub with rooms, right in the centre of Milford on Sea village, hosted by the very excellent Iain, who will always make you feel welcome. Excellent pub food and a changing rota of beers with a decent dry Rose always available! Menu changes seasonally and they do a smashing Sunday roast too.  There’s also parking.


Beautifully styled by a renowned local interior designer, this gorgeous little cottage is perfect for a couple and sits right on the village green. Just lush. Be prepared to spend a fortune in the adjacent No64 boutique – so much gorgeousness!!


The Coop – lovely Shepherds Hut on a leafy village lane, perfect for a couple’s escape. Super lovely hosts and they even provide on-site EV charging. Pooch friendly. Short walk to beach.


Set on a smallholding this gorge barn conversion has a rustic outdoor bath and wood burning stove. A real treat stay. You’re even welcome to meet the family pygmy goats Pickle & Pongo! Or take a glass of wine and sit by the pond


Slightly different this recommendation as its not one single place. But the customer service at NFE is really second to none so we would be remis not to suggest you hop by their website to check out their availability. They have handpicked a range of just stunning holiday properties in Milford on Sea and Keyhaven. Whilst we haven’t visited every single one of them, we have been in a fair few and can share some amazing feedback from other Jaunt-ebikes guests, confirming they were all brilliant. Love these guys.


Needles Gap – great home and location for a family getaway and just a few steps from the cliff top. You can hear the sea from bed! Lovely owner, parking and dog friendly.


Lovely Shepherds Hut nestled in the Leafy Lymore Valley. Beautifully presented – think fluffy robes and a log burner!!


Cute little wood lodge. Very cosy. Hot tub - say no more!
