This luxury holiday home rental near Beaulieu is an old brick factory. It faces one of the only private rivers in Britain – The Beaulieu River.

It is big, bold, baronial and boho so will suit stylish groups who will enjoy the inside that can only be described as mini-stately meeting Conran and industrial architecture meeting home comforts….a visual and sensual treat on all counts.

The privacy of this Beaulieu holiday home is a big plus – it’s hidden away in the ancient woodland but still with easy access to the New Forest and its coastline, getting the best of both worlds.

Need beds for another 4? From Easter, a Mongolian yurt provides an extra bedroom in the garden for up to 4 guests. It’s styled and dressed for its guests, whether they be romantic escapists, teenagers or a Lego fanatics. This is weather permitting and please bear in mind there are no toilet facilities in the Yurt.

Beaulieu village is just a few moments away by car and is as picturesque as you can imagine with the New Forest ponies wandering up the quaint high street.


Brickworks is best for groups wanting to celebrate in style. Families with older children will enjoy the nearby activities company; bush skills, paintball, high ropes, kayaking, etc.

Babies and children are welcome here but beware there is quite a bit of delicate china around and the Beaulieu River is close and unfenced. The dining/sitting room is big and has a table to seat 10/12.

Best for…

People looking for a super luxury bolthole, families with older kids, celebrations; 50th, 60th, 70th and 80th birthdays.


The garden is totally unfenced. There is thick forest on three sides and the river bordering the fourth. The river is deep and 180 metres from the door.

What are the quirks here? (We like to be brutally honest)…
There is quite a bit of lovely delicate china in the house. So it may not be the best place for small children. There are few toys here too. However the garden is perfect for older children to explore and the wild forest has plenty to attract explorers. The local activities company is nearby for them to go off to learn new skills whilst the parents kick back.


You can park within 10 metres of the house. Stairs have good bannisters. There is a sofa bed downstairs which opens into a small double, but you’ll then lose the room as a snug. For more to do in the area for less mobile folk, please visit our blog post.

So if you are organising a group with less mobile people then read our ideas (and tested excursions) here in our blog ‘Holidaying with less mobile folk? Here’s where to go, what to do!’

What makes this special...

Perfect for groups who want to hide away in super luxury and escape the world. We’ll help organise a chef to cook by the altar, spa treatments under the trees, wild suppers, and story tellers to keep you smiling. You can take a boat taxi from here to a good pub downstream, and the locals swim here sometimes too.

Keen sea-salts can park themselves on a deckchair on the riverbank for boat and bird watching, whilst waving to their grandchildren who are out on kayaks for river-play with the local river activities company. There is so much to do here for all the family that we have dedicated a blog just for Beaulieu and the surrounding area.

What we love

A short 10 minute drive across the National Park and you’ll find The Pig Hotel. It’s well worth the trip and make sure you book.

The food is sourced within a 25 mile circumference of the hotel and much is organic. They grow a huge amount in their gardens too.

We also love The Hut at Colwell Bay is well worth the trip – by boat if you can. The food is superb and there is a sandy beach at low tide. Take the ferry from Lymington and a short taxi ride, or get a RIB boat from the door – we can help you organise everything.


In any season it is glorious. Spring and the woods are full of bluebells and birdsong. Summer and the yachts and boat traffic are peaceful and beautiful. The forest colours in our British autumn are magical, especially on our most British of clear, cold mornings when no one is about. Winter, no matter the weather the forest will protect you from the worst and the track is good enough to get through to Beaulieu and Bucklers Hard (and there’s a great chocolatiere and coffee shops at the end too).

Do not miss the walk from the Agamemnon Boat Yard to Beaulieu and back. It is suitable for children, prams, grannies and mobility vehicles (tho taking slightly different routes which split and rejoin along the coast) it’s a fabulous walk and very pretty. The return trip is about 2 hours and it’s pretty flat. Do stop at Beaulieu for a few hours. There are excellent places to eat and several good small shops.

    Beaulieu & The Motor Museum

    A great family day out including the World of Top Gear, Palace and Gardens, Beaulieu Abbey and more! Rates 4.5 out of 5 after approx 5000 reviews – so we reckon its worth a mention.

    If you don’t pay for entry, still go and visit the village. There are a few good independent shops, cream tea at The Montagu Arms (very good), good garden centre and cafe at Steph’s Kitchen, opposite is an excellent learning garden which is also well worth a look.
