Sail from Lymington on a luxe yacht with a skipper and crew, staying in a boutique New Forest cottage - includes breakfast, a six-hour sail, plus lunch or dinner

This is an exclusive chance for a chartered sail around the beautiful waters of the Solent - the strait which separates the Isle of Wight from the mainland. Our offer includes two options - you can either spend a day sailing and sleep in your own private cabin, or you can head out for six hours of sailing and bed down at the idyllic Thatched Cottage Hotel in the New Forest.

A highly qualified crew who will see to your every need during your time aboard. They'll also offer you the opportunity and instruction to try your hand at sailing. These brilliant day sails won a coveted TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

You'll set out from Lymington, a charming little Georgian seaside town on the south coast, perched between the verdant New Forest and the Lymington-Keyhaven Nature Reserve. From Lymington, you'll set sail on the Solent - a strait extremely popular with sailors for its excellent conditions and stunning natural beauty.

If you choose the Thatched Cottage Hotel option, then you'll head back for a charming stay in Grade II-listed boutique digs in the heart of the New Forest. If you're staying on-board, you will spend the night on the yacht in Lymington, with full use of the five-star marina facilities and the Haven bar and restaurant.

Good to know

Guests who opt to stay in the Private Double En-suite cabin will enjoy private overnight use of the yacht; the latter will only be shared during the sailing day experience.

Guests who opt to stay overnight in the hotel can choose whether to sail on the day of check-in or check-out.
