New Forest Estate

You won’t want to let wild horses drag you away…

New Forest Estate

Two hours from London…

…two million miles away from the pressures of the city

line

Now, this truly is a stunning twelve-bedroom manor house! It sits in a fifteen-acre private estate in the beautiful New Forest National Park and like the famous forest itself, the property is steeped in history. Built in the Queen Anne style in 1760, it has had some notable owners including Lady Bingham, wife of Sir George Bingham who guarded the deposed Napoleon, no less! More recently, the house has been extensively restored to provide first class style, comfort and facilities, whether you are coming for a family holiday, a special celebration or a product promotion.  The layout of the house – and the cottage and coach house also on the estate – provides lots of flexibility facilitating large convivial gatherings or relaxing quiet retreats, with plenty to keep everyone entertained throughout your stay.

3 night break from £7,196

Based on a weekend break in low season.

Accommodates 24 people (+12)

Sleeps 24 in the main house, with a cottage (sleeps 8) and coachhouse (sleeps 4) on the grounds.

In the New Forest National Park

In the forest in Bransgore, with a distinctly rural setting yet within easy reach of both city and coast.

Luxury living in superb surrounds

line

Inside, the house mixes elegance and style with luxurious comfort and relaxation. We love the warm welcoming rooms where you can just sit back and relax and the cosy little corners for a bit of me-time. There is a wonderful sun-filled breakfast room; two living rooms with, of course, log fires; a truly elegant dining room that seats twenty four; a well equipped kitchen for those of you who want to cater for yourselves; a charming study; plus a cinema room and a games room so you need never be bored! By the way, we have a choice of local catering options, so if you don’t want to spend your time away slaving over a hot stove, we can arrange everything from breakfast to dinner with buffets and waitressed service, to hog roasts or mobile pizza ovens. We’ll be happy to talk through your options. And historic doesn’t meet archaic! Apart for the modern kitchen appliances, there is high-speed broadband and WIFI throughout the house; conferencing facilities with AV facilities and VOIP telephony; and digital entertainment.

Up the wooden stairs…

 

line

There are twelve luxurious bedrooms, eleven of which are en suite. With the large and luxurious beds you can be assured of a good night’s sleep. And for the kids, extra pull-out beds are available. Every room is stylishly furnished and the décor has been carefully selected to provide a relaxing ambience to aid restful sleep. We love this place!

And two beautiful cottages…

line

As well as the big house itself, there are two other properties: Magnolia Cottage and The Coach House, all within the 15 acre private grounds . The Coach House evokes thoughts of yesteryear with its cobbled forecourt, walled garden and homely feel. It sleeps up to eight guests. And Magnolia Cottage is a snug hideaway that sleeps four. Both have private gardens and can be hired separately or as part of the main house, giving you total flexibility. Of course, if you’re after total privacy, the best thing to do is book all three properties together, which will allow for a total of 36 guests.

Plenty to keep your whole party entertained

line

There is plenty to do in the house itself – whether it’s a relaxing read, a movie or a friendly game of cards. You may choose to stroll around the grounds or play croquet on the lawn. But you will probably also want to get out and about and explore the area. The New Forest has so much to offer.  We can help you arrange archery, canoeing, horse riding, shooting, sailing, cycling, clay pigeon shooting, high ropes, and loads more besides. Or if you enjoy water sports why not charter a boat, learn to sail, wind surf or water ski? Or, heck, just relax on the beach! Or visit one of the many gardens, museums, restaurants or pubs in the area. We promise you, you need never be bored in the New Forest!

Last weekend my husband and I, along with 22 friends, celebrated his 50th birthday at Shear’s Brook House. What an absolutely amazing weekend, what an absolutely beautiful, stunning house. The owners have hired a topnotch interior designer, and boy does it show. The house does not disappoint on any level. Each bedroom is beautifully decorated, wonderfully appointed, and all but one have stunning en-suite bathrooms. The dining room and lounges are straight from the pages of “Homes And Gardens’ magazine. If the weather in inclement, the media room and games room will keep guests entertained. The recommended caterer, Rebecca Green, provided a wonderful Saturday night dinner and Sunday lunchtime BBQ. We were thrilled with the house and cannot wait to find an occasion to hire it again.

C Donnelly

A stunning property, oozing with style! Definitely worth looking at if you are after something more than just a ‘venue’. The attention to detail is exceptional.

S Branson

Stunning house and grounds. All 19 of us were in awe and wouldn’t hestate to go back. The amount of detail the owners have put in to this property in every room is amazing and no shortage of activities to do either. Thank you very much for a wonderful weekend.
