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 and high ceilings 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. And it's MTB 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. Ideal location for events beginning at the Redwoods Centre – walk or ride to the start. A block from the house there’s a big park and kids’ playground, and bus stop to town. From Lynmore it’s 10-30 minutes' drive to four lovely lakes; Okareka, Blue, Green and Tarawera - swimming and picnics.

All included, unless I'm away, is fresh bread and fresh coffee beans for you to grind - I'll deliver to the door each morning. There’s a heat pump-warmed well-equipped kitchen/dining for meals, or a variety of takeaway outlets to choose from at the nearby Redwoods shopping centre, and a large sunny deck and gas barbecue for summer days. The lounge has a woodburner for warmth in winter, and a home theatre system, a fairly eclectic selection of books, internet (free unlimited fibre WiFi and computer) and a selection of classic boardgames for entertainment. A secure garage, tools and a bikestand will keep your MTB safe and running. 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. It's even worth waking early and opening the window or sitting on the deck to enjoy the birdsong.

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.

    Fantastic host and wonderful location for mountain biking or just a relaxed visit to Rotorua. Comfortable large clean home with all the cooking, relaxing facilities needed. Each morning a freshly baked loaf of bread and fresh coffee beans left by Mark.. a perfect way to start your day. We stayed at this batch as it's a few meters to the Redwood mountain bike track and a short easy ride into town.. really looking forward to our next visit (soon) and couldn't reccomend more highly!!

  • Location excellent minutes from lots of activities

    Location excellent minutes from lots of activities. Brochures provided . Almost to much to choose from. Property very comfortable. Grounds and outside deck and barbecue. Weather against us so we were unable use to full potential. Fruit and herbs available when ready. Delightful stay.
