Description

Welcome to Lynmore Lockwood, a three-bedroom open-plan home with timber walls and high ceilings. I live in a separate cottage on the same property. Lynmore Lockwood has two bathrooms/toilets, and a woodburner and two heatpumps (dining and master bedroom) for heating. Portacot and highchair are supplied for young guests The beauty of staying here is having the forest so close – it's only 150 metres from the house to the start of well-maintained tracks through the trees and ferns. Wake up early and open the window or sit on the deck and enjoy the birdsong. It's mountainbiking paradise; ride from the house through forest to the start of NZ's best mountainbiking tracks - hundreds of kms of trails. The Redwoods Visitors Centre is a short walk or ride away. The house is right by a bus stop to town, and a block and a half away there’s a big park and kids’ playground. Motion Entertainment, a new indoor entertainment complex, is 15 minutes' walk away. Four lovely lakes, Okareka, Blue, Green and Tarawera, are 10-30 minutes' drive - swimming and picnics. All included, unless I'm away, is fresh bread and fresh coffee beans for you to grind - I'll leave them at the back door each morning. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking and baking, and the dining area opens onto a large sunny deck with gas barbecue. There is a wide variety of takeaways/restaurants nearby at the Redwood Shopping Centre and Lynmore Junction. For entertainment there's a home theatre system, a fairly eclectic selection of books, internet (free unlimited fibre WiFi and computer) and some classic board games. Secure garage, tools, bikestand, air compressor for your mountainbikes. The garden’s one of my hobbies; visit at the right time and you'll get tree-ripened fruit. Linen’s supplied and the beds have decent mattresses. You're welcome to pop by my place for info, or if you’ve forgotten supplies I can h...

    The house was perfect for our family with room for the kids to spread out. It is a nice quiet neighborhood yet close to town and walk-able to the Redwood forest. We'll definitely be back for future trips to Rotorua.

    The Lynwood Lockwood property and garden is very well maintained, and comfortable, with everything you need for a relaxing break. Fantastic redwood walks are just across the road, and the house is central to the Rotorua area for sightseeing. Grocery shops and cafes are a few minutes’ drive away.
