Holiday Rental House
Eat Me Drink Me Cottage near Lymington. New Forest Escapes. The house is best to fit 4 adults and rest kids, 2 more adults if you want to use the sofa bed in the playroom. The cottage is part of the Pylewell Estate, which, according to The Guardian, hosts one of Britain’s Top 10 summer festivals – Curious Arts Festival – it's set apart from other festivals from it’s happy embrace of British eccentricity, style and fun. This cottage is similar! Owners Peter (concert pianist) and Victoria (owner of Elfie London) use this house through the year. Their enthusiasm for colour, quirky vintage, theatre and music fills the house. The dressing up box here is comprehensive (wizards, lizards, princesses, pigs, pirates etc) and so is the kit to host (un-matched) plates dinner parties for 16.

Downstairs; a cadmium yellow kitchen with long table. Plenty of cupboards and kit for cooking, messy baking sessions and birthday parties. Bathroom and shower room (a bit rough around the edges) off one side. A sitting room that wears bold wallpaper, oil paintings and a wall of books.. Then a red play room/kids sitting room with TV and knee-deep in kids kit. There are two further bedrooms downstairs that are newly painted and a shower room. Upstairs; The main bedroom has a glorious mahogany king size sleigh bed. Next to it a wooden swing cot. Along the corridor a white and quirky bathroom, just past that, a kids bedroom with 2 vintage cast iron single beds, a small wooden bed for 5’s and unders, and 1 wooden cot. Other essentials; In order to survive your kids for the week, you will appreciate free WIFI, BT Vision (with full kids channels including Disney) and Netflix. There’s also a good sound system docking station (with aux’ cable for iPhone connection) in the kitchen. And a Roberts Radio for some great Radio Solent listening. Baby kit; wooden (bit rickety but functional) high chairs, bouncy chair, travel cot, door bouncer, mini rocking horse. In the garden which is enclosed; Olympic sized Trampoline with cage, rope swing on tree, ride on plastic toys, see saw. Adventurous kids can camp in the garden too. More stuff for kids; Masses of dolls prams, kitchen toys, wooden football net, Lego, swords, Barbies, several dolls houses and a comprehensive library of loved and lived-in kids books. (The toy list here comes and goes, this is an indication of what's here not an exact list). More
