About Philip Bergquist


Forestedge is owned by Susan and Phil. After both working for 2 very well known companies for 30 years we have now transformed ourselves into a music teacher (Susan) and a property developer/manager (Phil).

One of Phil's hobbies is sailing and the location of Forestedge is just perfect.

Philip Bergquist purchased this bungalow in 2011

Why Philip Bergquist chose Bransgore


We bought this property in 2011 as we love the area and it's fantastic location to explore the New Forest and the surrounding coastline.

We completely remodelled the kitchen and lounge/dining area to create a modern L shaped living space for the needs of the modern family. Both the family bathroom and en suite have been replaced along with all new furnishings throughout.

We hope you love it as much as we do.

Happy holidays

Susan & Phil

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beverley "Most enjoyable stay!"

We had a wonderful stay! Ideal location 3 excellent pubs (3 Tuns was our personal favourite) a parade of shops and a vets (which we had to use) all within walking distance.

We went to Highcliffe and walked to Mudeford Quay. My husband and grandchildren went Monkey World which they all enjoyed. We also went to Arne RSPB, which is not far from Corfe Castle.

The property itself was spotless having an en-suite was a bonus. The kitchen had everything you would need (although we never did any cooking just toast, cereal and made sandwiches for our picnics). The weather was glorious which was a bonus.

We hope to go back next year.

"We had a wonderful break in a home away from home"

Forestedge was just what we were looking for. It was perfect for my husband and I and my 1 year was comfortable and happy. we couldn't have asked for me. great facilities in the immediate area, pubs, shops etc and you are central to everything else. we drove to Southampton

Excellent Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

A lovely holiday bungalow, very clean and spacious and so well equipped with quality products in every way, especially for eating in, and appreciated the little extras in the kitchen such as washing up liquid and tea towels etc., Extremely comfortable beds with on suite and second bathroom separate but excellent for two couples. We appreciated its quiet location in the village which has lovely neighbours, a very good fish and chip shop, and nearby pubs for meals, besides its easy access to the forest or nearby beaches. Loved our weeks stay at Forestedge and would certainly highly recommend, Many thanks Sue and Philip.

Location location location!

  • 5 of 5

The property is a very well appointed. A comfortable bungalow set in a lovely village with all the amenities which you would need. We were four adults and a dog and fitted very comfortably in. The village has three dog friendly pubs within walking distance and a variety of really nice shops - Butchers, bakers, co-op (late evening opening), café, post office, newsagent to name but a few. All within walking distance. New Forest on the doorstep and the lovely coastal area is near too. Would certainly go back.

Well equipped bungalow, really good location.

  • 4 of 5

Well equipped bungalow with excellent facilities. Grubby garden furniture meant we didn't use outdoor space to its full advantage. Situated in lovely little village close to many attractions. All in all a pleasant place to stay.

Everything to hand

  • 5 of 5

Forestedge is a delightful, well equipped, comfortable, accessible essible bungalow. A very fine en suite accompanies a double bedroom. A family bathroom services the other 2 bedrooms. Rails have been thoughtfully provided in both bathrooms. There is a long drive, pleasant neighbours and a sunny rear garden. We enjoyed our stay in a convenient location for all parts of the New Forest and local towns.
