History

When you stay at Bridge House, you will not only have a wonderful place to stay, but you will also be able to experience for yourself a little bit of New Forest history. Built in 1760 Bridge House is one of the  the original Georgian village cottages. It was later extended, and  became the doctors house, and surgery in 1930. It was extended once again in 1970, and opened as a B & B in 1980 by the present owners Lynne and James who have run it as a B & B to this day.

Garden

The beautifully manicured mature two acre garden provides an ideal place to relax on those balmy Summer evenings, with a glass of wine, or a cold beer and provides direct access to the forest.

Location

Brockenhurst itself is an ideal, and central location to base yourself if visiting the wonderful New Forest National Park. In fact you do not even need a car, because the train station (main line to London Waterloo) is within walking distance of Bridge House, or a short 5 minute taxi ride. The village is well served with a wide selection of excellent pubs and restaurants. Bike hire is available from the Station, and there are numerous walks in and around the village including the stunning walk through Rhinefield Drive.

Lymington & Coastline

If the wonderful scenery of the New  Forest was not enough, the picturesque coastal town of Lymington (famous for its excellent sailing and the ‘must see’ Saturday Market) is only a 10 minute drive, or one stop on the train away. If you have a day to spare why not take a day trip as a foot passenger to the Isle of Wight (The train from Brokenhurst links directly to the ferry)

Activities

Brockenhurst is an ideal base for a range of both Forest and Coastal activities including, cycling, walking, and sailing. The Village itself is well served with a wide range of eating establishments within walking distance.

Testimonials

  • JM Bromley
    We really enjoyed our stay at Bridge House! Our room was very clean and exactly what we needed. The instructions for check-in were very clear when we arrived and we had no problem at all getting in. Breakfast on both days was delicious! We also really appreciated the time that Lynne took to help us find a beautiful walking route. We would definitely stay there again!

    We booked though the official New Forest travel website in the last minutes. It was the location which closed to the railway station attracted our attention. And in fact we made the correct decision. The hosts are very friendly and helpful who put us to a comfort and bigger room. The breakfast is full of choice although I don't have a big stomach. James provided useful suggestion for our first day cycling route. Lynne's hiking route to Bank was also very enjoyable. We had a nice weekend and will go again.

    We booked the B&B for two days with kids 11 and 13 for a cycling weekend and this was just perfect. The Brokenhurst location is perfect and the B&B is walking distance to the town centre with cycle route starting just a few minutes away. The place is ideal for kids as we had a twin room just next to the double with the upper floor pretty much for ourselves. As for the breakfast choice and quantity is absolutely brilliant getting you ready for a full day cycling. Highly recommended.

    Bridge House was perfect for a two night stay in Brockenhurst. An easy walk from the station and into the centre of the village; round the corner from the riding stables and forest walks; and a very friendly welcome from Lynne. Breakfast on both days was also spectacular. Thanks very much and hope to stay again!

    Just a note to say what a lovely stay we had with you on Saturday night and how much we enjoyed it. We always find that stumbling on somewhere to stay usually works out better. I looked for a review option on the web site to champion your breakfast! -To no avail. However if you ever want to Win the National Championships and need a reference to enter we would be happy to oblige. We have sampled the full English breakfast in many a 5 star hotel and in the best b&b's the West Country can offer but none could hold a candle to yours. 10 out of 10 for all criteria!
