Embrace the great outdoors with the New Forest on your doorstep. On lazy summer days, hop on a boat taxi outside the house to a good pub along the river or join the locals in a swim off the pontoon.
The Brick House & Annexe, nestled within the New Forest National Park, holds a privileged position on the very edge of the privately owned Beaulieu River. The home makes a wonderful option for those searching for a truly relaxing escape, being ideally based for those wanting to enjoy the great outdoors, whether on foot, by bike or even by indulging in some water-based activities.
The former brickworks possess endless charm and character while still offering guests all the modern amenities possibly needed for a more than comfortable stay. The Brick House can comfortably sleep up to eight guests across five well-appointed bedrooms, while the Annexe can comfortably accommodate an additional four guests, however the sleeping arrangements are best suited to a small family of two adults and two young children.
On the ground floor of The Brick House is the main living accommodation which comprises a warm and welcoming living and dining area with a cosy wood burner, the perfect place to snuggle up in the evenings as well as a snug and TV room. Also on this level is the kitchen, fully equipped with an Aga and all the tools a budding chef could possibly need. Upstairs are the five bedrooms, two king-size double rooms, one of which can be set up with twin beds on request, while both come complete with en-suite bathrooms. There is also an additional double bedroom and two single rooms, each with raised high level beds suitable for children aged seven and above. These bedrooms share the use of the family bathroom.
On the ground floor of the Annexe is a bright and open-plan entertaining space with living and dining area as well as a fully-equipped contemporary kitchen. Upstairs and accessed by a spiral staircase is the family bedroom, which features a super-king size bed and an additional single bed and boasts an en-suite bathroom with bath and large walk-in shower. A further single bed can be found in a cosy mezzanine level above, accessed by ladder-style stairs. It has a restricted head height so is best suited to a young child.
Outside, guests will enjoy the excellent river views from the garden, while the terrace makes the perfect spot to enjoy a barbecue al fresco on a summer’s evening. A second large lawn can be found to the side of the main house, complete with a trampoline – excellent fun for the children.
