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.
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.
