“Ideal base for New Forest”
Reviewed 8 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The Bothy is excellent. Very quiet location but only a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Lyndhurst. High quality furnishing, very comfortable and high standard of kitchen. The owners seem to have thought of everything.

“Perfect location with all the necessary amenities”
Reviewed 30 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

This was our 2nd Christmas at The Bothy and again we found it to be the perfect location for the short walk to the centre of Lyndhurst or further afield into the New Forest. The cottage is comfortable, convenient and well equipped. We look forward to future stays.

“Lovely cottage in excellent location.”
Reviewed 12 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We stayed for a week. A perfect location for walking and cycling, which is what we did most of the time, and although very secluded, it is just a very short walk into town. The Bothy is spacious, quiet and comfortable and has everything that you might need. John and Stepahanie also left some very generous items to settle us in. Couldn't fault it.

Very well equipped, plenty of space, all mod cons and spotlessly clean. We would thoroughly recommend the Bothy.

“Fabulous Find”
Reviewed 3 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016
1
person found this review helpful

The Bothy is a lovely bungalow tucked away in a corner of Lyndhurst. The owners were so welcoming, with a bottle of wine, fruit basket, bread, milk, coffee, tea and biscuits all ready. This was lovely after a long journey. The Bungalow is very stylish and comfortable, with a pretty, well equipped kitchen and modern bathroom. The bedroom was spaciouse and had plenty of storage space.
it was very conveniently located for walks straight out into the forest and shops were just around the corner. The lawn was large and the grazing deer a pleasure to watch. My time there was just magic and I would reccomend this property. I hope to stay again soon.
