About the property

Gorse Cottage was extended and updated in 2013/14 and has since been commended with the prestigious 5-star gold award from the English Tourist Board. It’s now bright and modern throughout, boasting a gleaming white, Italian designer kitchen with all the latest appliances as well as new bathrooms, new furnishings, Wi Fi and BT Satellite TV. In the lounge, there’s room for everyone on the new, L-shaped leather sofa, to watch favourite programmes or a DVD on the 50” flat-screen TV, or play with the host of toys and games provided, from jigsaws and Jenga to good old Trivial Pursuits. A baby bouncer and baby rocker are also provided, along with a long list of helpful baby gear from baby food warmer and bottler steriliser to a high chair and Moses basket.

With 5 bedrooms in total, 3 of which are en-suite, Gorse cottage is ideal for extended families and friends. Three of the bedrooms are on the ground floor and one of these, the Garden Room, has patio doors into the garden. Two Dormer bedrooms have most recently been added including the new master bedroom in soothing grey and cream, with views over the New Forest countryside.

Why Katya Gilbert chose Brockenhurst

I fell in love with the New Forest in 1993 when I worked in the surrounding area. It was fantastic to see animals having priority over cars in this region. I always dreamed of owning a property here. I finally realised my dream in 2004

What makes this cottage unique

Whilst the New Forest is a natural playground for picnics, wildlife spotting, bike rides and pony trekking, Gorse Cottage has the added bonus of being just 400 metres from the Balmer Lawn Hotel, where families can buy day passes to use their leisure facilities, including indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools, Jacuzzi, sauna, gym and tennis courts.

Accommodation overview:

Gorse Cottage is modern Dormer bungalow with 5 bedrooms, that comfortably sleeps up to 10 people plus a baby in a cot, which is provided. The 6.8 x 3.5 metre living room, with smooth wood floor, is furnished with a 7-seater, L-shaped leather sofa and matching pouffe, 50” wall-mounted flat screen TV with BT Satellite channels and a DVD player.

With Gorse Cottage looking straight out into the New Forest, it’s not unusual to see ponies, deer, donkeys and even an Old Spot pig ambling past the front gate! Its location could hardly be much better, with the popular village of Brockenhurst just a mile away.

The New Forest rolls right down to the south coast, wedged between the grand old seaside resort of Bournemouth and Southampton (13 miles). The nearest sandy beach to Gorse Cottage is just 7 miles away at Lepe and Lymington (5 miles) is a pretty coastal town with quaint cobbled streets, boats bobbing in the quays and ferries across the Solent to the Isle of Wight.

Nearest medical services: GP in Lymington (5 miles); A&E Southampton (13 miles)
