The property enjoys a prime central location and is approached via a footpath from Romsey Road, just around the corner from the main High Street. Lyndhurst is a popular New Forest tourist location with many independent shops, art galleries, cafés, restaurants, pubs and hotels. The nearest city is Southampton located around nine miles (14 km) to the north-east. The New Forest National Park is the ultimate symbol of tourism with Lyndhurst often being referred to as the “gateway to the New Forest”. This is reflected by a variety of bars and cafés, a thriving High Street scene and the nearby open forest.
This charming, recently converted cottage forms part of a larger character property and has been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard. The ground floor accommodation comprises an impressive open-plan kitchen/living room and a cloakroom. The kitchen is fitted with a stylish range of contemporary white gloss base units with white work surfaces over and wood finish eye-level units above. There are a number of built-in appliances, including an inset hob with an extractor hood above, oven, integrated fridge/freezer and a washer/drier. Stairs lead to the first-floor double bedroom and a luxury shower room fitted with a white suite and limestone tiling.
This property would make an ideal base in the New Forest and is suitable for use as a shorthold tenancy, offered with no forward chain.
The cottage benefits from an outside communal decked area which is ideal to enjoy a glass of wine on a summer evening or a relaxed coffee on a weekend morning. Although there is no formal parking at the property, situated close by is a public car park where a permit can be purchased.

Living in Lyndhurst
Lyndhurst is nicknamed the capital of the New Forest. This is partly because it is centrally located within the Forest, and partly because it is home to the district council, the Forestry Commission’s district office for South England and the Verderers’ Court (Verderers are the guardians of the Forest’s commoning rights and therefore protectors of the Forest landscape). It is also home to the New Forest Centre with Forest-themed museum, library and gallery.
Its High Street is a busy thoroughfare with numerous tea shops and coffee houses. As a shopping experience it runs the gamut from old-fashioned sweet shop and an award-winning butcher’s, through art gallery and eclectic vintage interiors shop to the Ferrari and Maserati showroom.
Eateries range from popular country inns, such as The Royal Oak at Bank (a hamlet within the parish boundary) and Lime Wood, a hip country house hotel with Good Food Guide recommended restaurant and luxurious spa.
Property is equally varied: from traditional terraced cottages to big country houses. Lyndhurst also appeals to commuters as there are links to major road networks at Ashurst and Cadnam as well as mainline stations at Ashurst and Brockenhurst.
