Description

In an idyllic setting, this delightful holiday property offers a wonderful base to explore and experience the island.

This lovely stone building is the larger one of two delightful properties, set one above the other, next door to The Old Coach House (24689) and in the courtyard of Brook House, which dates back to the 12th-century. Brook House 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. Westbrook is a charming property that has been renovated with style and comfort in mind, boasting a modern kitchen/diner, a cosy living room with a wood burner and three lovely bedrooms. Just across the courtyard you will find Westbrook’s own spacious fenced garden.
There is an abundance of scenery from the rolling countryside to the outstanding heritage coastline offering a great range of walking routes with over 500 miles of footpaths including the The Tennyson Trail, named after the famous poet who once resided on the island. 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. At low tide there may even be a chance to see dinosaur footprints in the sandstone ledge at Hanover Point. The small pretty village of Brighstone is only 3 miles way offering a shop, pub, restaurant and a post office. The Isle of Wight offers many places to visit including Chessell Pottery which is a working pottery with a paint studio where you can make a memento to take home with you (1.2 miles). Head towards Niton and you will find Blackgang Chine (8.5 miles), the UK’s oldest amusement park which features rides, life-sized dinosaurs, pirate ships, fairy villages and much more. If you continue further along towards Ventnor you can visit the octagonal tower of St Catherine’s Lighthouse which is situated at the most southerly point of the island, offering views out to the English Channel. Dinosaur Isle home to the islands fossil and geological heritage (17 miles), Robin Hill Country park offering exciting rides and adventure play all set in beautiful rolling down land and forest (12 miles). Shops 3 miles, pub (serving food) ½ mile. Restaurant 3 miles and beach 1 mile. NB: Refs 18919, 18920 and 24689 can be booked together to cater for larger groups.

    A beautiful place for all the family. We stayed in April 2016 and October 2016. Both times we received a warm welcome, fresh bread, a goodies basket and milk were waiting. The lounge had lovely comfortable sofas and the bedding was warm and cosy. We took our parents, rabbits and two year old son. Travel cot, baby gates and high chair available and the layout of the house is perfect to accommodate little ones. The area is so beautiful and we noticed that although the north and east part of the island might have some rain or cloud, West Wight does seem to get the best weather. Brook bay is perfect for a pebbly dig with the spade which is all our little one wanted to do. We recommend Monkey haven (winner of several awards), the donkey sanctuary and the Alpaca farm. Our hosts are delightful. Would definitely recommend.

    The was one of the nicest cottages we've stayed in - we went as 3 generations plus dogs - including two teenage boys and grandparents, but it was a very spacious cottage with three good sized double/twin rooms and two bathrooms, so there was plenty of room for everyone. The cottage itself was beautifully furnished and lovely and comfortable with lots of sofa space and a very pretty sunny garden to sit out in, so it was quite hard to tear ourselves away.

    Lovely well equipped cottage. Perfect for our family of 6. The owners thought of everything although I couldn't find a pastry brush to oil the bbq vegetables - a minor point though! Beds were very comfortable with beautiful bedding. All the equipment worked and the information booklet had everything we needed to know. The garden was great with morning sun on the decking area so great to eat breakfast there. Only downside was that the bbq was not cleaned from previous use so had to scrub it before we used it - and scrubbed it again afterwards! We all had a great holiday - thanks for helping with that.

    We had a great few days here and really liked the property. It was well-equipped and comfortable, we especially enjoyed the woodburning stove on the cooler evenings. It was good to be within walking distance of the coast and we enjoyed exploring the area. One thing which would have helped with the arrival is a sign with the property name at the point where you have to turn behind The Old Coach House.
