The Bothy is a lovely property situated within easy walking distance of the town centre and Lyndhurst is ideally located for the New Forest.
It is lovely and spacious inside, beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly need for your stay.
We had a wonderful holiday at the Bothy and were so lucky with the weather as well.
We would certainly stay again when visiting the New Forest. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

“Superb well appointed accommodation”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Only good things to say about this accommodation. The house was furnished to the highest standard. Clearly a lot of thought had gone into providing everything you could possibly need. Everything down to the toaster was of the highest quality and nothing was skimped on. The house was immaculate when we arrived and a complementary bottle of wine, tea, coffee, bread and flowers was much appreciated.. The location was excellent - literally a one minute walk from the high street with its restaurants, pubs and shops, and the fact that we were able park right outside the accommodation was a bonus. I have no hesitation in recommending the accommodation and I have have no doubts we will return at some stage.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 5 August 2016 for a stay in May 2016

John and Stephanie, we stayed in your lovely bungalow recently and thoroughly
enjoyed our weeks holiday, quiet surroundings and yet within a few minutes of
Lyndhurst high street for coffee, breakfast or evening meal , not too far to travel to
some lovely places, the card, wine, fruit and marmalade a lovely thought. We will
definitely be back.

“Regret to say but this didn't live up to expectations.”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Very tastefully decorated with quality furnishings, fixtures and fittings throughout. Such a pity the property is being attacked by rising damp and subsequent associated smells. Unsuitable for anyone with asthmatic ailments.

The Bothy a beatiful well thought out home from home, we felt our holiday begin as soon has we walked through the door.Thank you for the items which greated us the home made marmalade yummy, and being able to put the kettle and have coffee before unpacking. Then beautiful Alstramiera S. John and Stephanie we felt really spoilt. You would not believe just out of the drive was a busy place. LYNDHURST lovely shops and the bakery yummy cakes .Lots of nice places to eat.First time for us in the new forest but it wont be the last. JEAN MICK WILLIAMS NORTHAMPTONSHIRE.

“Outstanding Accomodation”
Reviewed 27 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed for a week and really enjoyed ourselves, the Bothy is excellently presented and welcoming. Nice and quiet location but only a very short walk to excellent restaurants and pubs. I cannot recommend this accommodation enough. The only thing is the more people that get to know about it the harder it will be to book it again ourselves.
