The Experience

There’s a calm vibe here with three floors of pure white walls, beautiful windows through which light gushes in, sweet attic beds for children and bathrooms galore. There are also plenty of safe harbours for the less than sociable to hide with a book, both inside and out.

Underfloor heating, proper working shutters and a big fireplace in the sitting room keep things extremely cosy when it’s chilly, and there’s a wood-burner in the TV room as well as books and games for rainy days. When the sun shines you can open French doors here or big bi-fold windows from the cook’s kitchen – complete with larder and all the basics for cooking. A welcome hamper of New Forest stuff from the village is waiting too.

The garden is just under half an acre and there’s a smooth lawn for games and charging about, all surrounded by mature trees. A good pub is just 200 yards down the road and Brockenhurst village is a five-minute stroll.

  • Settling downstairs with the fire on and playing a game or choosing an interesting book

Brockenhurst House is utterly wonderful. A beautiful period house with all the features but modern fixtures and fittings making for a treat break away from the hustle of every day life. The location is super with a few minutes stroll to the village high street which hosts great amenities, in one direction, and extensive forest walks to escape in the other direction. The garden was brilliant was our 3 youngest members. Thank you to Steve for his kindness and thoughtfulness as host.

Anna, Near Oxford

A truly stunning house set in a lovely garden just a few minutes walk into Brockenhurst.  All the furniture and fittings in the house from the bathrooms to the bedding is what you would expect from a five-star hotel – real luxury and comfort. And the level of care the hosts went to make us feel welcome was really appreciated - from the basket of local gastronomic goodies for us to tuck into - to the ice cold bottle of complimentary rosé in the fridge. We had a very lovely time and hope to repeat the experience soon!

Wonderful house with a perfect garden for little children

Tim, London

Wonderful house right in the heart of Brockenhurst. Quiet location in lovely private grounds. Ideal for our family get together to celebrate my wife’s 70th birthday. Lovely walks from right outside the gates. Steve was very helpful with the arrangements and we shall definitely return.

Nick, Northamptonshire

You always wonder whether pictures and descriptions do the property you've chosen justice, but as the electric gates opened seamlessly to Brockenhurst House, we knew instantly that there was absolutely no need to worry. From the moment we entered each room for the first time, or opened yet another drawer or cupboard filled with brilliant utensils or cutlery, there was nothing but complete and meticulous attention to detail. Steve and team have done a remarkable job in turning their family home into a special and welcoming haven for all visitors. We'd highly recommend for any occasion.

Jamie, Amsterdam

Large comfortable house with plenty of space right on edge of the new forest park, renovated to a high standard. Steve was very helpful and would recommend as a great place to escape the city.

Michael, London

A wonderful house in a beautiful location. Three generations celebrated my father’s 70th and we had a fantastic time. The house has everything you need for your stay, the bedrooms are generously sized with super comfy beds adorned with crisp soft linens and with three bathrooms nobody is ever queuing for the shower. The downstairs kitchen dining room is a stunning entertaining space and the lounge is fantastic. Equally the quieter reading corner in the hallway is genius as it looks out onto the garden, perfect with the swings for the children. Perfect location and we will definitely be back.

Hannah, London

This house is just beautiful! I was in raptures the moment we arrived! It's very spacious accommodation, beautifully decorated, and with everything you could need for a self-catered break. All the guests in our group were delighted by our stay.

Julie, London

What a perfect house for a family holiday. Three generations loved their week in the New Forest. Early mornings looking out across the common at the horses and cattle roaming free was the perfect start to the day. The house is charming and extremely well-appointed. There is plenty of space for the children to play, equally, plenty of space for adults to read. The two year old kept asking if we were returning to 'the house with swings', difficult not to.

Alexandra, Cardiff

A gorgeous friendly-family house with plenty of space inside and out for marauding children and nooks for the curmedgeonly to hide in. Play games on the lawn, cook in the super kitchen, explore beaches, ride bikes or horses, walk for miles and return to much comfort, warmth and generosity.

The neighbourhood

The feel is surprisingly rural with cows, donkeys, horses, deer and pigs ambling about outside, but you're near to merciful civilisation. In the village you can stock up at a brilliant butcher's shop, a traditional bakery and an eco-friendly co-op. The Pig Hotel is a 15-minute drive, Milford on Sea is 20 minutes and Southbourne has a big beach. Lymington is 10 minutes for harbour sailing.

Local points of interest from The Owner

  • You can't get a better location to explore the New Forest - an area unmatched for trekking and biking. We directly face miles of open-forest where ponies, cattle, donkeys, deer and sometimes pigs roam free. The beach is just 8 miles away.
  • Great options for eating out include The Forest Park Hotel/Pub a 2 min walk. Several pubs are in the village. The Pig with its great cocktails is a 10 min taxi drive and Limewood with it’s Angela Hartnett run restaurant and spa, is a 15 min cycle.
  • Walk aross ‘The Watersplash’ to get to the historic village of Brockenhurst where you'll find pubs, a proper butcher, award-winning baker, supermarkets, gift shops and Tea rooms. Nearby Setley Ridge Vineyard has a brilliant farm shop. Ocado deliver too!
  • Exit the house, turn left and cycle for 10 minutes and you will be in the ‘Ornamental Drive’ where In the mid-1800s, a forest worker planted an abundance of Sequoia Redwoods creating one of the most spectacular areas of woodland in Britain
  • Nearby is the historic port town of Lymington, famous for its sailing and pretty boutique-lined cobbled streets. It’s here you get the ferry to Isle of Wight - a great day trip. Salisbury Cathedral, Winchester, Stonehenge & many beaches are an easy drive.
  • The station is a 15 min walk and has fast trains to Central London (90 min). Leave the car and take a day trip to Bournemouth 20 mins, Winchester 20 mins, Southampton 15 mins. Close to the station is Brockenhurst Church with its 1000 year-old yew tree.
