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.
