The village of Lyndhurst has a delightful array of gift shops, restaurants, tea rooms and pubs, with the area around Lyndhurst comprising heath lands and open spaces like Bolton’s Bench, where families can enjoy the sunshine and play games during the summer whilst ponies and donkeys roam free. One cannot leave Lyndhurst without going through the forest, which is what makes this such a popular place for walkers and cyclists to take a break on their journeys through the forest.

The area is home to the New Forest District Council, as well as the Verderers’ Hall, dating back to the 13th Century where the members of the Verderers’ Court still meet. The village also has its own Anglican Church, St Michael and All Angels, which is perched on a mound overlooking the village, and is where Alice Hargreaves, the inspiration for Alice in Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, is buried.

Lyndhurst is a well-connected town being in a central location for access to Southampton one way via the A35 and Christchurch through to Bournemouth the other way.

Known as the capital of the New Forest, Lyndhurst offers magnificent landscapes and a rich architectural history. Lyndhurst is surrounded by countryside which is reflected in the property heritage throughout the area; cottages, period properties, country homes and Victorian homes are scattered throughout Lyndhurst.
