Lyndhurst has been known as the capital of The New Forest since William the Conqueror established it as a royal hunting ground in 1079, with Kings and Queens staying at the Royal Manor throughout the centuries. Lyndhurst is also home to the Forestry Commission and the Verderers’ Court (Verderers are the guardians of the forest’s rights and therefore protectors of the forest landscape).
The delightful High Street offers an eclectic mix of boutique shops and everyday stores including an old-fashioned sweet shop and award-winning butchers, as well as an art gallery, a vintage interiors shop and a Ferrari and Maserati showroom. There are numerous places to eat out, ranging from popular country inns, such as The Royal Oak at Bank (a hamlet within the parish boundary) to Lime Wood, a country house hotel with a highly regarded restaurant and luxurious spa.
An entrance porch leads into the main hall and incorporates a downstairs W/C and secondary door leading into the main hallway giving access to all the ground floor rooms which are laid with stunning oak flooring throughout and a further door leading to a patio area.
The downstairs accommodation consists of a large kitchen/breakfast room which boasts a range cooker and ample storage units, with the further benefit of a utility room with door out onto the lovely gardens.

Stairs from the main hallway lead to the first floor landing with large storage cupboard and two good sized double bedrooms and a three piece family bathroom.
