“you will not find better than the bothy anywhere.”
Reviewed June 27, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

What a fabulous cottage to stay in. Its large and roomy and tastefully furnished ( oak furniture throughout ) and has everything you could possibly need including free wifi. The cottage is situated in a private drive well away from traffic noise, and any other noises. My wife and I have stayed in many self catering cottages all over the country and this is very best yet. I highly recommend 'The Bothy' to anyone wishing to stay in the New Forest area it really is a peach.

“Idyllic place and could stay forever!”
Reviewed May 30, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed in The Bothy for a week of the Whitsun bank holiday and what a lovely place to stay.
The photographs are exactly as it is and the location couldn't be any better.
Ideal for a walk to the shops to get shopping and a walk into the forest tor jump in the car and go into Southampton or to the coast.
The accommodation has all the facilities that you need to cook with and is very cosy!

“A quiet little gem !”
Reviewed May 28, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The Bothy was perfect for our stay in the New Forest last week.
A quiet little gem of a place just off Lyndhurst High Street.
Walking distance from everything you need on the High Street plus out into the forest amongst the gorgeous cattle & ponies !
The owners are more than helpful, should you need to contact them during your stay (or if you leave any belongings behind !) and have thought of everything in their lovely accommodation.

“Absolutely Fabulous.”
Reviewed April 13, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Had a fantastic week at The Bothy in Lyndhurst which is fully equipped and an ideal base for visiting the forest and surrounding area,it is close to the high street of Lyndhurst with its many shops and a few pubs (all within walking distance)but remains secluded and peaceful with Roe deer grazing on the lawns at certain times.When we arrived we found that the owners had left bread ,coffee,tea,sugar,butter and delicious home made marmalade and being Easter a large Easter egg which was a great way to start our week.If you have a disabled partner (which my wife is) this place is ideal as you can park right outside of the door and it is an almost level walk into the village so very wheelchair friendly. If you are thinking of booking stop thinking and BOOK!

“fabulous 5* home from home”
Reviewed December 13, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

What a welcome, central heating, wine, pantry essentials, Xmas card and tree! Clean and looks just like the pictures! Perfect location as close to shops and easy access to nearby villages, towns and city but quiet with wandering deer included. Stay again - absolutely. Friendly village - we had chats and brief laughs in apothecary and pages of lyndhurst with free wine tasting. This is an excellent example of a holiday which could compete with similar abroad in terms of a value British holiday offering excellent standard of accommodation.

“Excellent peaceful cottage”
Reviewed November 2, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We loved our stay at The Bothy. First of all the owner made us confortable since the beginning and really cared after us. Even if the house is in very close to the center of Lyndhurst, it's very quiet and visited for different forest animals like foxes and squirrels. The house is very warm and welcoming, we loved it all and we would surely repeat our experience there.
