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.\nToday 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 kitchendiner 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.\nThere 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. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/179/840/179870.jpg 18919

    Excellent location for a relaxing break, in the countryside close to the beach and in a quiet part of the island. Cost was slightly high but understandable at peak time and fabulous cottage.

    A wonderful family-friendly cottage with all the equipment you could possible want or need! Lovely garden for kiddies to play in too with secure gate to keep them safe from any cars entering the courtyard.

    Beautiful home from home. Upstairs very spacious, downstairs cosy but kitchen a bit small for 6 people. Very quiet and rural which I loved. 2 guests have very limited mobility and couldn't manage the garden, the owner was extremely helpful and provided a table closer to the house. Would definitely return.

    The house was what we expected from the photo's online however we felt it was expensive in comparison to similar properties elsewhere. One of the reasons we did book was because there was a lack of high quality properties on the island for the dates we required. I would rate this as a 3 star property rather than a 4. Cleanliness was not really an issue but there was a significant amount of cobwebs everywhere, very evident and could not be missed by anyone undertaking any cleaning. This did not mean that the rest of the house was not clean but it certainly looked unpleasant. The bathrooms could benefit from updating, including better finishing (the boxing and tiling around the downstairs toilet is badly done and just ruins the appearance. Plenty of kitchen utensils, nothing missing that would be required to cook pretty much any meal. Knives were very blunt but I've yet to stay in a property that doesn't have blunt knives which is why I take my own set. Unusually there was a knife sharpener but it would be nice if the owners could spend a short amount of time between occupation to sharpen the knives, it makes all the dfiference. Plenty of space for parking outside the house and a small enclosed garden opposite with a kettle barbecue and wooden table and chairs. The furniture would really benefit from a new coat of staining and weatherproofing which would then make it look somewhere enticing to sit down and eat from. The window frames and front door would also benefit from a fresh lick of paint, this would not detract from the character of the house quite the opposite. The area around the house and parking spots is full of weeds and looks unattractive, a simple problem to resolve and one which would remove the eyesore. The beds were comfortable enough but nothing special. Sufficient towelling is provided, classic white, bath towels and hand towels. There are no hand towels in the bathroom or downstairs shower room nor anywhere to hang one near the sink after washing your hands. You'll find soap for the handbasins in the wicker basket on the kitchen table. Wi-fi is available but a bit spotty and coverage isn't great. You also have to log back in to the router if your device goes into rest mode, this is a minor irritation for the most part however be mindful of this if you're sending large amounts of data and your screen saver kicks in or device goes into sleep mode. There is a separate rental apartment above the property which was occupied at the same time by a family with a young child. We experienced absolutely no problems with noise and if I hadn't known they were there I'd have assumed it was empty. Likewise the adjoining house that sleeps four, upon our arrival the occupants (four young men) were having a barbecue and listening to music. Once inside the property we heard nothing unless you went to the upstairs bedroom and listened outside the window. If we hadn't seen them when we arrived we would have had no idea that there was a party going on next door. As mentioned a barbecue is provided (in very good condition) and plenty of charcoal in the cupboard housing the boiler however we didn't have the opportunity to make use of it as we made alternative arrangements. There is a reference manual in the lounge explaining the rules of the property, advice about rubbish disposal,the local area etc and also a request for feedback. I have e-mailed the owner with some constructive feedback but unfortunately have not received a reply, much of it was what I have mentioned in this review. The house is nice enough, it's not a luxury property by any stretch but with a little bit of attention to certain aspects it would make a noticeable difference for not much effort. I do feel it is overpriced however the location is very good and plenty to see and visit nearby.

    The cottage was very comfortable and cosy and the provision of milk and home-made bread was very welcoming. However, the cleaning in certain areas could have been better hence the 6 mark, above. I understand that the buildings are old and need work but the presence of builders and their vans were slightly annoying and we should have been told beforehand. The noise was not overwhelming and we were out during the day, in any case. Overall, we were pleased with the accommodation and we have just booked North Brook for a holiday in January.
