The forest on your doorstep

A classic 1970s Lockwood timber house just 200 metres from Rotorua’s famed Whakarewarewa Forest Mountainbiking paradise – ride straight from the house into the forest and start exploring over 200 km of New Zealand’s best collection of mountainbiking trails.

Or, for a rest from riding, there are numerous walking trails; a 20-minute wander through a punga fern forest and towering exotic trees will get you to the iconic Redwoods, where there is an i-site and elevated treewalk.

Lakes Okareka, Tikitapu (Blue), Rotokakahi (Green) and Tarawera are just a few minutes’ drive away. It’s less than ten minutes’ walk to cafes and food outlets at the Redwoods Centre.

LynmoreLockwood is in the family suburb of Lynmore, a quick 5 minute drive east of the main city.

I live in a separate cottage on the same property. That means I leave fresh bread and coffee beans at the back door for you each morning, but I’ll be completely unobtrusive unless you want info or help with something in the house etc.


All included:

• Linen and towels • Fresh bread and coffee beans each morning • Welcome carton of milk • Basic pantry supplies, tea, coffee, milo • Bathroom supplies, body wash and shampoo.
