About our home

A 10 minute walk from the centre of Brockenhurst, our house is one of the original homes in the New Forest which has been completed renovated and modernised. From our white picket fence, to the beautiful country garden and welcoming family kitchen, the house offers a true escape. With uninterrupted forest views, and horses, cattle and donkeys on our doorstep, the house feels a million miles from London but is an easy 90 minute train ride from Waterloo station.
Brockenhurst is a friendly village offering all the basics (grocery store, butchery, bakery, wine shop, pharmacy) and nearby Lymington (10 minute drive away) will meet any other shopping needs. There are some fabulous country pubs in the area (we'll leave cycling directions to some of our favourites) as well as top notch restaurants and hotels such as The Pig.
Whatever the time of year, there's always something interesting to do in the New Forest. At the moment we're loving picking plums and pears from the garden, taking our bikes out into the forest and enjoying the Autumnal colours. During summer we spend our days on the beach near Christchurch or at the seawater baths in Lymington followed by a BBQ on our patio. The Isle of Wight is an easy day trip by ferry (or for the more adventurous RIB).
