Welcome to Lynmore Lockwood. My place is your place – a three-bedroom open-plan Lockwood. I live in a separate cottage on the same property. Timber walls, high ceilings and a woodburner give it that holiday feeling, two bathrooms/toilets make it easy for larger groups. Portacot and highchair for young guests.

The real beauty of staying here is having the forest so close – only 150 metres from the house you're into the trees and ferns on well-maintained tracks. Wake up early and open the window or sit on the deck and enjoy the birdsong. It's mountainbiking paradise; leave the car at home and ride 5 min 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. 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 are 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 help out. Otherwise, I’ll be unobtrusive, just using the garage occasionally.

  • Warm, comfortable house, perfectly located on the edge of the forest

    Warm, comfortable house, perfectly located on the edge of the forest. The log burner is great and the kitchen is very well equipped. We'd definitely love to stay again.

    The property was ideally situated for biking and walking in the redwoods also for exploring the whole Rotorua area and very easy to find. Lovely having a log burner too.

  • Great house for a family to have a holiday in...

    Great house for a family to have a holiday in. Nice and clean with a modern kitchen, and for mountain bikers it's only a couple km's warm up to the famous tracks.

  • Great place to stay, so close to the Redwoods for mountain biking

    Great place to stay, so close to the Redwoods for mountain biking. Despite the freezing weather the property was lovely and warm with the multiple heating options. We loved getting fresh bread and coffee beans every morning - great way to get set for a day on the bike. Would certainly recommend a stay here and hope to come back sometime.
