House in Hordle, Lymington, Great Britain

Our home and garden, and a few local scenes
We have 3 bedrooms upstairs and a study downstairs with a small sofa bed.
We live on the edge of the New Forest ( in fact the border of the National park crosses our orchard ).
Its a great area for walking and cycling on and off the roads and plenty of riding schools nearby for horse lovers. We are planning to upgrade our bikes for visitors, but there are lots of local cycle hire places in the Forest
Our local beach is stoney but quiet  ( great for sea swimmers ) and the best sandy beaches of Highcliffe, Southbourne and Bournemouth are an easy drive. Our last Austrian visitors loved the gentle surf at Bournemouth beach.
Lymington is a bustling sailing town with bars, pubs, restaurants and of course sailing clubs. Ferry across to the Isle of Wight from Lymington, days out to the dramatic Doset coastline ( Lulworth and Durdle Door are our favourites )
My husband plays golf nearby and there are several pay as you play courses around.
For any of our European friends, Bournemouth has a wealth of recommended Language schools that run  throughout the summer
We have two dogs and an old cat. The dogs will either be with us ( if staying in the UK) or staying with friends. The cat is very independant and comes and goes through her flap. She will need feeding daily.
We are two hours  by car/ train to London. 
We are interested in  Italy, Croatia or Portugal for September 2015 as you are not planning to be away in July and August 2015. We could drive or consider a car swap. If possible we would bring our road bikes and enjoy cycling days out.
It is likely to be only my husband and I travelling now, although we may like to invite one daughter and boyfriend or another couple who are close friends to travel with us.
My youngest daughter lives in Berlin, so a long weekend to visit her would be lovely.
We have two well behaved springer spaniels and would like to consider long weekends in the UK with the dogs for countryside walking
