About the neighbourhood
Lyndhurst is recognised as the capital of the New Forest, having a good selection of restaurants & public houses, walking & cycling being popular ways of enjoying the area on paths away from traffic, with miles of country lanes offering driving pleasure. The Bothy is set within a small quiet private estate, having over two acres of communal grounds, just a few minutes walk from the bustling high street.
Getting around
A car is an advantage, although not a necessity as a regular bus service runs from the high street, to Southampton, Brockenhurst & Lymington. A wonderful open top tour bus, or rather three operate from Lyndhurst, Lymington, Brockenhurst and Burley during the summer months, enabling car free days.
