Brook House, which dates back to the 12th-century, is oozing in history, and has stood through many wars throughout its time. Many famous people from the past have visited this house, including Henry VII in 1499. Other famous visitors included Winston Churchill, Lloyd George, the Astor’s, the Prince of Wales (Edward VII) and Queen Mary. In the mid 1800’s the house was owned by the Seely family and one of the famous visitors to Brook House during Charles Seely’s ownership was Garibaldi, the Italian General and Politician. Jack Seely, who inherited the house from his father Charles, was Secretary of State for War at the outbreak of WWI, although he resigned due to being caught up in political difficulties with Ireland (the Curragh affair) and was replaced by General Kitchener. He fought in the war with his horse, Warrior, who became famous as the horse the Germans couldn’t kill.
Today, the grounds of the property holds three self-contained properties (Westbrook ref 18919, Northbrook ref 18920 and The Old Coach House ref 24689), which are situated in the peaceful and private Old Brook House Estate located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The well maintained Old Coach House has been refurbished with style and comfort in mind. There is a spacious kitchen/diner, a large living room to relax after a busy day and four cosy bedrooms. You are spoilt for choice with a private cobbled courtyard and a large lawned garden offering a sitting area and garden furniture.

One mile away is the unspoilt golden dark sands of Brook Bay and a little further along the coast is the busier Compton Beach. They both have views of the white cliffs of Freshwater Bay but it is also a great place to find fossils.

    We stayed over the NY break and the weather was very bad but we made the most of the fabulous house. We ate, drank and played games. Perfect

    We have been spending girls' weekends away for over 12 years and the Old Coach House is definitely one of the best we have ever found. It was spacious, well-furnished, well-equipped, warm, had plenty of bathrooms and situated in a lovely part of the country. Having a pleasant pub within walking distance was a bonus! We also had some hilarious fun with the table tennis in the games barn. We can thoroughly recommend this property.

    Perfect place for a family getaway. House was well equipped, spacious but cosy, close to a lovely beach, a good pub and a national trust garden. We will definitely be back.

    Really was a lovely place quiet close to the beach the closest one 2 mins drive though best for dog walkers freshwater is slightly further round the road about 10 mins and was nicer . Arrived at the house lots of little goodies bread basket of jams coffee etc only one down side spiders my son's a total arachnophobe hubby had to dig out the Hoover and go on a mission in every room . It's an amazing place though deceiving the picture is of the building it looks small but inside is huge it did me my husband and 7 children . Only thing to be aware of with little ones is the slide bolt locks on the toilet door my 22 month old manage to lock herself in got stuck for 40 minutes whilst we were trying to get her out

    We loved our stay at the old coach house we had 4 adults and 4 children and we always felt we had enough room. All the rooms are spacious and the lounge and kitchen dinner had plenty of room for all of us. The garden is big enough for the kids to run around in as is the house. The kitchen is well equipped for all cooking needs. The location is quiet which we loved but within easy driving distance of all the places to visit. We would definetly go back and recommend it to anyone!!!

    There were 6 adults and 5 children in our party and we all had a great time. The house was spacious and comfortable. The table tennis in the barn was a brilliant activity for everyone to get involved in. The bread and tea/coffee/ milk upon arrival was a lovely touch too. Great location. Overall an excellent place to stay!

    We had a lovely family holiday to celebrate a significant birthday. The Old coach House is very well equipped and extremely spacious - ideal for a large party of varying ages. There is plenty of parking and the enclosed garden is great for small people. It was exactly what we wanted for this family holiday.
