About Andrew Duncan
I have owned Boundary House and Boundary House Cottage since 1988. However, I have had a much longer association with the Beaulieu neighbourhood because my grandparents came here in the 1930s. I am married with two sons in their 30s. I live in London during the week where I run my publishing business, Duncan Petersen Publishing.
Andrew Duncan purchased this Cottage in 1980
Why Andrew Duncan chose Beaulieu
Apart from the family connection it's an area of great variety, combining the sea with country pursuits.
What makes this Cottage unique
The sea - Beaulieu River with its sailing are close by. It's peaceful and secluded, yet convenient for Lymington, 15 minutes by car.

Beautiful cottage, great location for a weekend break
Beautifully kept cottage with all facilities you need for a break in the beautiful new forest.
The kitchen is well equipped, the lounge is cosy especially with the lovely gas fireplace which heats up the room very quickly. The bedrooms are furnished nicely with very comfortable and warm duvets and pillows. The under floor heating in the bathroom is fab during the cold months. Parking directly outside the cottage is great and the little garden is a great bit of private space. We stayed during a cold weekend so it was great to have the electric heaters we definitely needed them!
Charming little cottage
We had a lovely weekend get away in this charming little cottage, the house is closer to the main house then we expect but once you settled in it didn't matter. Perfect romantic retreat.
lovely cottage in perfect location in the New Forest
cosy and individual furnishing.
friendly and helpful owners.
warm welcome with a cold drink.
Thank you so much for this review, much appreciated.
Unkept garden, work needed on the interior, Full of cobwebs.Wrotten balcony which was dangerous
Drive way was too narrow.
Garden was a mess and the garden furniture was either broken or not cleaned.very disappointed.
These are strange, one-off comments given the high praise we get from other reviewers, and never a complaint.
Garden not promised as fully maintained, but grass is cut.
Interior is in top condition, recently refurbished.
Full of cobwebs is untrue - we check for cobwebs. However in this country property they do develop quickly.
Garden furniture is not broken and was cleaned. Balcony checked and not rotten or dangerous.
The drive is narrow, but no one else complains since it is wide enough.
A lovely setting, in a amazing location.
We will certainly be booking again in the future. With the national motor museum and bucklers hard in the local village. With private parking for the cottage all set in the owners grounds. Sleeps 5 and the bathroom had underfloor heating which was welcomed.
A delightful cottage in a beautiful part of the world
All comforts were thought of, and we stayed warm and dry through a wet wintery week.
Special interest holidays:

There is a huge amount to see and do in the area: walking, cycling, sailing, riding and the large number of attractions that the New Forest has to offer. These include Beaulieu Abbey, the National Motor Museum and Bucklers Hard historic ship building village and Maritime Museum; Exbury Gardens; Lyndhurst (the 'capital' of the New Forest); the market towns of Lymington and Ringwood and further afield the cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester.
