  • "We have just returned from a lovely weeks stay in Brock Cottage."

    Sue the owner was very welcoming. The cottage itself is very comfortable with great views, spacious rooms and a very well equipped kitchen. It also has a lovely garden which is very private. We also had visits from the owners little dog Boris who was adorable. Thankyou Sue and Boris for a lovely week, hopefully we will be booking with you again.

  • "Superbly located cottage open to the Forest."

    Owner very helpful. Nothing too much trouble. To enhance a stay here we would suggest a couple of lounging chairs for the garden (sitting on hard wood chairs to read was not very comfortable). Also perhaps a small sofa in the kitchen/diner to make more of a day room (we had friends visit for a few hours and there were only 2 chairs to sit on).

  • "We stopped at Brock Cottage in the New Forest."

    Sue who own's the cottage was very welcoming and nothing was to much trouble for her. She did have Boris her dear little dog who was so friendly and we looked forward to him coming around to see us when we got back from going out to explore the beautiful area, it was also a great thing to be able to look out of the front window to see the ponies and donkey's grazing on the grass, also there is a beautiful back garden where we saw a pheasant running about, so if you want a relaxing holiday give this place a try.

  • "Sue the owner is great, friendly and very helpful."

    She has a lovely dog Boris who pops over, but Sue did check we were ok with him popping over. The accommodation is great, had all we needed and parking, we cook ourselves a lot and found the facilities good. Great view of the sunset and ponies from the living room window. It is in a great location between Beaulieu, Lymington, Brockenhurst and near the Car Museum. Great walks through the forest. Would definitely recommend here, and hope to return.

    It is clean and comfortable with great views across the garden and the heathland. The host (and her dog) are friendly. The kitchen is well equipped and the entrance has storage for bikes and the ideal place for leaving muddy walking gear. We had a lovely stay, have already recommended it to others and are considering a repeat visit.

    Loved the view from the upstairs lounge window across the heathland where we watched the animals grazing. The landlady was very sweet and attentive and helpfully put on the central heating in June to dry us out after a particularly wet walk! Even the property’s garden is fabulous……..we would have used it more had it rained less!

  • "Very warm and cozy spot for a winter break."

    Really comfortable and welcoming place for two of us to hang out and sleep in comfortable beds. We do a lot of outdoor activities so fantastic to have the large porch area where we could keep stuff safe and dry. Also, we were kindly allowed to use the boiler room to dry some of our kayak and bike kit. Kitchen facilities great - so saved a lot of money and hassle finding places to eat out. Great farm shop 10 minute walk away. Having said that, we enjoyed the 20 minute walk to the nearest pub with huge food portions and crackling fireplace (taking lights to guide and protect us on the road)

  • "The cottage is in a fantastic area of the New Forest, with walks into the forest from the doorstep and Hatchett Pond just across the road, with stunning sunsets."

    There are often ponies and donkeys right outside the gate. Walking into Beaulieu takes about 20 minutes, and although there is a footpath for most of the way, there are small parts of road walking with no pavement (there is a grass verge). The cottage itself has everything you need and is very comfortable, we felt totally relaxed and slept better than we have done for years. The owner lives next door to the cottage and is very helpful, you are also likely to be visited by her friendly dog, Boris. All in all, we had a great stay at Brock Cottage and wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again.

    It is right in the forest as opposed to being on the peripheral with heath land and woods right in front of us. The proprietor who lives next door was very pleasant and helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. The cottage is like an upside down house with the kitchen downstairs and the living room, bedroom and bathroom upstairs. There is a rather steep set of stairs going upstairs and rather risking spilling a cup of tea on the stairs we for the most part 'lived in the kitchen' which was fine only going upstairs later in the evening. Overall the holiday was great and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

    The owner Sue, and her right hand four legged helper, Boris were both delightful. The garden at the cottage was lovely and the cottage's position in the New Forest ideal. An excellent position for sightseeing. We extended our sightseeing as far as Bournemouth and Chichester as well as the lovely villages and towns in the New Forest. Several highlights including Lymington, Christchurch, and Bolderwood Arboretum. Sue recommended a couple of places to visit and they were excellent, especially Exbury Gardens. At various times throughout the day, everyday, we saw ponies, donkeys and cattle just metres from the cottage. For a brisk stroll around Hatchet Pond you need only walk a few metres as it is over the road. We have used Sykes many times and again they have given us a home away from home. A big thanks to Sue and Boris. Jim and Jennie

The coastline is only a few miles away and there are so many walks and places to visit. We were a bit worried about the "steep staircase" in the property and whilst it took a bit of getting used to, there was a good strong handrail, and with both the sitting room, bathroom and bedroom upstairs, there was no worries about having to negotiate it at night-time. The bed was also very comfortable. We will definitely return to this property.
