Holiday Cottages in Lyndhurst
Lyndhurst is the largest town in the New Forest and is widely regarded as the Park’s ‘capital’. Home to the New Forest Centre, Lyndhurst is a popular tourist location with many independent shops, art galleries, cafés, restaurants, pubs and hotels.
Lyndhurst holidays introduce visitors to some of the more quirky aspects of life in the New Forest. It is the seat of the Verderers, who were originally part of the ancient judicial and administrative hierarchy of the Royal Forests set aside by William the Conqueror for hunting. The title Verderer comes from the Norman word ‘vert’ meaning green and referring to woodland. The Court of Verderers sits in the Queens House in Lyndhurst and still has influence over the commoner’s rights to graze their animals in the Forest.
Access to the heart of the Forest
Lyndhurst holiday cottages are located in and around the town, giving visitors easy access to the very heart of the Forest right on their doorstep. With attractions and activities to suit all ages available all year round, they make an excellent location for a holiday in the New Forest at any time.
