We stayed at Brockwell for a week in August with our adult children as part of my husband’s 60th birthday celebrations. The cottage was lovely - very comfortable and well equipped. A lot of care has gone into the decoration and furnishing and both are of a high standard. Everything was very clean, which we appreciated. The garden is very nice and we enjoyed a couple of bbqs in the sunshine. The outside room was very comfortable and is in the sun in the morning - perfect for a cup of tea. It was great to be able to walk into the village centre as well as straight onto the forest. We would happily stay here again.

We had a fantastic week at Brockwell, We felt very happy turning up at the property with the current Covid situation - although we still cleaned Kitchen equipment & took our own Pillows & Quilt it wasn’t really necessary as the property looked so clean, Just extra precautions for our peace of mind really. We loved the accommodation, it has been done to a very high standard with all the homely goodies we needed while away on Holiday. We especially loved the outdoor covered seating area, great for a bit a shelter from the sun, Chilling under & enjoying the early Morning with Breakfast !! We cannot think of any improvements or recommendations at all as it was such a great place. Brockenhurst itself is lovely, the The Pubs & restaurants were all great, we had so many lovely evenings sitting out for meals in the sun, we especially enjoyed your recommendations of “ The Pig “ Restaurant- Great Food & what a nice place, Good job we went mid week else we would have been trying to go Again !!!! We took our 3 Bikes with us & had three lovely 10 mile treks along the tracks , we ended up at The Oak Pub in Bank which was a great turning point & a nice refreshing drink, another day we had a Picnic at Wooten Bridge- Lovely spot by the small River…. Thanks again for all your help over the last few months especially with all the help on the Covid situation & assuring us of all the precautions you had put in place to enable us to have a stress free Holiday.

We had a lovely week thank you. The cottage was spotlessly clean (and we're really fussy ;-)) and the little additional notes around the house regarding cleaning worked really well. We very much look forward to our return visit in October.
Brockwell was everything we could have wished for. Stunning inside, very comfortable and high spec. The Aga kept the place warm and cosy. Outside the enclosed garden was perfect, south facing with a beautiful covered seating area. The cottage is well situated for the forest and many good eating pubs, also only a short drive to the lovely coastal walks and shops in Lymington. We would love to return.

Well appointed home, with everything you need to hand. Stylish and modern, with nice touches. The kitchen's best feature has got to be the aga. It was a real pleasure cooking meals. The downstairs space was perfect for dining, as well as keeping the kids entertained. The garden with the outdoor covered seating area was a bonus when things got too hectic inside!... Bedrooms were a good size with really comfy beds. Bed linen smelt fresh and clean and towels were fluffy and thick. Overall a great stay.

Beautifully furnished and brilliantly equipped property with a lovely comfortable garden area for relaxing. High end finishing touches and quality beds/ bedding made this a very comfortable stay.
We have had a super weeks stay and house is very comfortable and well equipped for our first visit to the area. Highlights of the week include swimming and inflatable course at the sea water baths, a really fantastic days cycling from Brockenhurst (bike hire in the station good value and very friendly) and seeing lots of friendly donkeys :) We have enjoyed eating at The Mayflower (small portions but excellent food), The Angel & Blue Pig and particularly good food at Rivaaz Indian in the High Street.

We had a really nice break staying at your wonderful house! So quiet and amazingly well equipped. Thanks loads.
We have all had a great weekend, lovely weather, great meals out. We went to Beaulieu and saw the donkeys in the High Street. A lovely house, very homely and well equipped - good to have the parking clocks. We celebrated Geoff and Julie's 40th Wedding Anniversary.

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 attention 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.
