Looking for the perfect inside-outside lifestyle? A total slow down? Welcome to super stylish Brockwell.

This 200-year-old village home in Brockenhurst has recently been completely refurbished by expat’ owners who live in New Zealand for part of the year – and their love of the outdoor life shows.

The open plan ground floor dining-kitchen-living space flows into a west-facing, semi-formal garden of grasses and olive trees that’s perfect for relaxing and entertaining. There is a light-festooned cabana with squishy cushions on deep rattan sofas which is a comfortable outdoor room whatever the weather. It provides shade in summer and somewhere to snuggle under a blanket with a glass of wine or a hot chocolate on cooler days and evenings.

The house is in a cul-de-sac on the edge of the sleepy village. Wild ponies will wander past, the National Park in its leafy glory surrounds you, cows shamble up the village High Street… welcome to Brockwell in Brockenhurst.

Whilst set up for adults, families with small babies, or kids will be comfortable here. Kids who are independent will love escaping into the wild to climb trees, get muddy knees or walk a minute to the nearby play park.

Please note, this house is family friendly for 2 babies and for children over 8. Thanks

The house is an oasis of calm in this already sleepy village. Walk inside and the serene style here will soon unruffle your feathers. It is smooth throughout; neutral base colours, sleek finishes and considered touches. The garden cabana is a clever design and allows for inside/ outside living in style.

It’s the perfect holiday base for exploring, resting and taking some well earned time out.

more about this place...

We can’t overstate that life in this particular village is hugely affected by the New Forest wild animals. Based on rights going back for centuries, it is animal access all areas…including the little street this house watches over. Walk to the shops and you’ll meet donkeys mooching outside the mini Tescos or sleeping on pavements.  Cattle sleep in the middle of the road. Last year, in the house just opposite, a donkey gave birth on their driveway!

This period property is over 200 years old but the house itself recently had a full make-over by local interior designer company, ‘Willow’ of Lymington. Now the atmosphere is bang on trend; fresh and calm. The new, open-plan kitchen-sitting room is well kitted out. It’s light and bright and stretches from one side of the house to the other. A butler sink, a big mirrored window, Moles Breath paint from Farrow and Ball… the interior designers didn’t miss a beat. You’ll also find a glossy AGA, a gas hob, two electric ovens and a full set of new SMEG appliances. The kitchen table seats 8.

The sitting room area is cosy with deep sofas for 5. It’s built for getting cosy and chatting. Fancy some music? Sonos speakers will give you amazing sound quality – just make sure you’ve got your app and details with you.

Upstairs you’ll find 3 chic bedrooms. The Master bedroom has a smart en-suite shower and can fit a travel cot. There is another double (king size) and a compact twin with singles that can be moved together. The style is modern, genteel and everywhere nods to the forest. We particularly loved a tailored seat of lush green velvet in the main bedroom.

Bathrooms? The family bathroom has a shower over bath with overhead rain and hand held shower. All sparkles.
From the kitchen there are two big glass doors that open into a cosy, enclosed garden with the ‘cabana’ room that takes centre stage. It’s kitted out with squishy sofas to seat 6. Next to it a picnic table and benches to seat 8. The sun hits in the morning and afternoon through the warmer months. In winter anyone wanting a quiet spot for evening chats should head to the cabana with rugs and a glass of wine. The trendy festoon lighting is perfect too. The little garden, surrounded by neighbour gardens, is simply planted and softened by climbing clematis and scented plants. There is even astroturf lawn.

In spring 2019 a local carpenter has the job of making a BBQ-kitchen area right under the kitchen window, to allow platters and ingredients to be passed outside. It’s another thoughtful touch from the well-travelled owners who have owned top-of-the-class holiday rental properties before.

Just so you know…

The house is semi-detached and shares garden borders with several other village houses. The road here is a cul-de-sac so there is little traffic. Except for the ponies. They get everywhere. Close the gate!

Accessibility

It is 3 meters from the nearest parking place to the kitchen door, where there is a small step.
Downstairs is all on one level with an easily accessible toilet. There are good bannisters here.

what makes this special...

The location is one of the house’s bonuses. It is found down a no-through road within an easy walk of the centre of Brockenhurst which is surrounded by the National Park in all its leafy glory.

This charming  village also provides all your holiday essentials: traditional tea rooms (our current fave is The Sett), award-winning bakery, old-fashioned butchers and greengrocers, cycle hire store,  and destination pubs and restaurants.

Picturesque delights include two fords, one known as the Watersplash which crosses the ‘high street’, and a common grazed by cattle and ponies. We can’t overstate what an animals-access-all-areas village this is. Stroll to the shops and you’ll meet ponies and donkeys. Last year a donkey even gave birth in the driveway of the house opposite!

We love the walking and exploring from here. Get out and about in any direction and you’ll find wild woods, broad heather-filled pastures and big skies.

We also love the walk to The Pig from the house. It’s 45 minutes around the edge of the pretty village.

Fancy some sea air?  Lymington and the coastal walks are a 10 minute drive. The Saturday markets are lovely. You can get there by train too – 9 minutes across the heath.

don't just take our word for it...

Read real reviews from guests that have stayed with us at Brockwell

We arrived at Brockwell on a cold dark Friday evening feeling tired after a busy work week. Once inside we both felt immediately relaxed. What a gorgeous cottage! The Aga gave that wonderful warm feeling of cosiness and welcome and we felt immediately 'at home’. Uncluttered stylish design…..the look is sort of Soho House does Forest Cottage, very cool but keeping true to the wonderful New Forest influences. Lots of greens and relaxed soft greys etc. We felt as if we were in a luxurious boutique hotel hideaway, so relaxing. Couldn’t fault the attentions to detail…Nespresso machine for all important coffee/Sonos system/Great TV with all the channels/very comfy beds and linens/great bathrooms etc. etc. In the morning we came down to see the lovely garden with fabulous seating area for relaxing with morning coffee. Definitely will be visiting again, after 3 nights there we felt as if we had really chilled out and can’t wait till the next time.

the location...

Brockenhurst, or ‘Brock’ to the locals, is a sleepy little red brick village in the centre of the new forest. It is encircled entirely by National Park, heathland and ancient forest.

A ford runs through the middle of the village and ponies and donkeys rub their ears on the street lights. You can take a fast train to Waterloo in well under 2 hours.

The high street is well worth a visit to explore the little cafes and of course a fantastic butcher, baker and a candlestick seller (very good independent DIY store) no less. The village is central in the lower half of the forest area. You can reach the beach in 12 minutes by car or by 2 hours walk. It’s got a lovely young vibe and during term time the village is full of students from Brock College.

The train station and village centre is 7 minutes walk away. London to ‘Brock’ is 1hr 48 mins from Waterloo.

We love cycling from here deep into the forest to Bank (3.5 miles away to a good pub). Or there is the fabulous restaurant at The Pig Hotel. Horse lovers will be in their element, you can ride here at the stables locally.
