Timbers sleeps up to ten guests in five bedrooms and offers spacious self-catering for large family groups and friends. Perfectly located in a peaceful residential area of Lyndhurst, the 'capital' of the New Forest, this welcoming holiday home is well placed for discovering the beauty of this wonderful national park.
Offering relaxed and comfy accommodation, there is plenty of space both inside and out to cook, socialise, relax and sleep. Whether you want to holiday in the area or find a venue to celebrate a special occasion, Timbers provides a warm welcome at any time of the year.
Easily accessible, you can leave your desk in the afternoon and be relaxing in the New Forest within just a couple of hours, whether you arrive by train or car. Lyndhurst is under five miles from the M27 and smack bang in the middle of the forest with all the major attractions within easy reach, excellent amenities in the town and wonderful forest walks and cycle rides accessible from the front door.
A place where ponies and cattle roam freely, the New Forest was formerly a royal hunting ground and is home to an abundance of wildlife. It offers miles of beautiful forest walks and trails to explore by foot, bike or horseback, or take it easy and enjoy a picnic in the forest under the canopy of the trees.
There are plenty of fun-packed days out and a trip to the Lyndhurst Visitor Information Centre in the heart of the town will help you plan the best ones for you and your party. Book to go pony trekking at one of the local riding stables; Spend the day at Beaulieu Motor Museum (sure to be a hit with not only the men but also the women!); Brush up on your maritime history at Buckler's Hard; Take the ferry to the Isle of Wight from Lymington; Visit Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary; Portsmouth Historic Dockyard; Exbury Gardens (spectacular in the spring); Or enjoy a day by the sea (the coast is only ten miles away!) visiting Bournemouth, Southampton or head in-land to the cities of Salisbury and Winchester.
