About the Owner

I am Steve Brooks and I own a printing company called Allbrook printers in Hemel Hempstead. My wife Sue works in a nursery school. We have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. The bungalow is our holiday home. We go there as often as we can. We plan on retiring there eventually. We bought the bungalow 5 years ago and have spent a lot of time doing the place up including adding large extension, bedroom and bathroom upstairs and just done garage and new driveway and patio. New kitchen has been fitted in January 2016

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely rest at your beautiful bungalow. thank you very much.

The directions supplied were very good and much appriciated and we enjoyed our stay.



Remarkably spacious and roomy for a bungalow - the extensions are great additions.

Wonderful downstairs shower room - really nice with seemingly never ending hot water.

Very comfy beds - we all loved the foam mattresses and had great nights sleep

Fabulous location - ideal base for many of the local attractions, beaches and towns.

Very nice big TV in the lounge.



Just wanted to drop you a small note saying how much we enjoyed the house. It was clean and comfortable and everything we could think off was provided. I am sure we will be in contact with you next year to book again.

Large, warm and good value for money

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this large bungalow. The kitchen was perfect and very well equipped. Both bathrooms were perfect; lovely corner bath and walk in shower. The bungalow was very clean and for once the wifi worked very well in a holiday home. Easy walk into Highcliffe (10 mins) through the woods at the end of the road and short walk to the beaches. Two very good pubs within walking distance.

A Very Lucky Find!

  • 4 of 5

We left it a bit late to find somewhere suitable for a mixture of people and this could not have been better. Our son and daughter-in-law were the energetic ones who went walking down to the beach reasonably early each morning before breakfast. They also discovered the excellent cafe on the cliffs which we all managed to visit for breakfast one morning. The holiday accommodation was well equipped with everything we needed and was spotlessly clean and well cared for. Our daughter-in-law cooked us a delicious fish pie one evening after discovering a fresh fish stall down near Christchurch Harbour. We were in easy reach of the coast and the forest which made for a very interesting holiday. We also went into Poole. There are numerous public houses that offer good food and a good variety, and one we discovered on this visit was

The Silver Hind at Sway where we had a very good lunchtime meal.

The description of the holiday property was very good and the travel directions sent by Steve were great and easy to follow. If we needed to contact Steve he was always courteous and understanding and nothing was too much trouble. It was lovely to have my husband's sister who was over on holiday from Australia with us for a few days, and my husband who is slightly disabled found the whole holiday easy to cope with. All in all everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and look forward to spending time in Highcliffe in the not too distant future. Thank you Steve and Sue for helping to make our holiday so good.

Lovely spacious well equipped bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great holiday. We are a family of 5 and this bungalow had everything we needed. It is light, airy spacious and beatifully kept and well equipped with plenty of storage in the kitchen and bedrooms.

It's well located with a small local shop within a few minutes walk along with a great take away. There are a lot of restaurants and take always nearby. Ocado deliver to this address so we didn't need to go to a large supermarket but there are both Sainburies and Waitrose near that we saw.

We didn't try Highcliffe beach but visited Bournmouth and Southbourne beaches which are both sandy and with good amenities.

We have had very good communications with the owners and the cleaner was also very helpful. We definitely hope to return and I don't think I've ever felt as 'at home' on a holiday before.

Lovely bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this bungalow. My father has dementia and difficulty walking so this was an ideal property for him.

Everything there that we needed. We couldn't get tv to work and the owner was immediately there to help us.

We loved visiting places of my childhood, Milton on Sea, Muddeford and Christchurch and we had several excellent meals at The Amberwood (see their set menu - very good value) a 5 min walk away.

The weather wasn't fantastic but we did complete a jigsaw or two as a result!

Would certainly recommend 😄

Lovely bungalow and a lovely break!!

  • 5 of 5

We picked this bungalow because of the good reviews already given and are so glad we did! It is a lovely bungalow, close to everything and a very nice pub up the road to recover in after long walks. We went to several places New Forest, Highcliffe Castle and the surrounding beach area, Brockenhurst, Bournemouth, Poole and all convenient - all in 4 odd days.

The bungalow itself is great! I read somewhere about the kitchen being small in an earlier review - but it has been completely refurbed and was our favourite room! I'm pretty sure it had underfloor heating too - was so nice in the morning as typically the English weather wasnt great. Everything was extremely clean and everything we needed was already in the bungalow for us to use. Cannot recommend highly enough!!

It is lovely there with lots to do. It is only 15 minutes walk cutting through the Chewton woods to the sea which is sandy to the left of Cliffhanger resturant. You have lovely view of Isle of Wight from there. The new Forest is very close as well and there are lots of lovely walks to do around there. If you want major towns Bournemouth town centre is 8 miles away. There are lots of lovely golf courses here as well which I am enjoying trying out.
