Tenure: Freehold

BEAULIEU    The village is the historic seat of the Montagu family who have for generations occupied Palace House.

Renowned for its eclectic mix of picturesque period properties both large and small the village is located some 7 miles north east of the Georgian market town of Lymington, famed for its river marinas and yacht clubs. The neighbouring forest village of Brockenhurst (approximately 7 miles west) affords a diverse range of shops and educational establishments, together with a useful mainline rail connection to London (Waterloo approximately 90 minutes). Approximately 7 miles east is the waterside village of Hythe that has a ferry service across Southampton Water/River Test that links with the commercial city of nearby Southampton.
