Owners Comment

“We have loved our time at Peacock Cottage. To pull up at our car port is to enter a different world. It's so peaceful here. A gate from our garden leads into Bramshaw Wood where ponies, cows, deer, and the occasional donkey roam freely, sometimes right up to our sitting room window. It's a unique setting that we will always remember fondly.”


This charming cottage has been extended and improved over the years offering up to three bedrooms with an open plan kitchen dining area enjoying beautiful views over the landscaped gardens to the open forest beyond. The spacious sitting room with feature log burning stove also overlooks open woodland with horses, donkeys and deer literally at the window. An impressive timber framed double carport and adjoining workshop have been built by the current owners completing this attractive package. Tucked away from passers-by with just two other cottages and the Bramble Hill Hotel. Bramshaw also boasts a local shop, historic golf course and two well regarded public houses with easy access to the motorway networks for those needing to commute.


A striking blue timber front door opens into the entrance vestibule, fitted with a slate tiled floor and underfloor heating, ideal for coats and shoe storage. A secure inner door opens to the bright and airy open plan kitchen and dining area decorated in neutral tones which complement the solid oak flooring. The attractive cottage style kitchen offers a range of cream fronted wall and base units with contrasting black granite work surfaces over, feature central island and breakfast bay, enjoying views over the landscaped garden to the open forest beyond via French doors. An extensive range of integrated appliances include a single oven, combi oven, ceramic hob and extractor, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and water softener. The generous dual aspect sitting room allows access to the garden via French doors with a side window directly onto the open forest with regular visits from the local cows, donkeys, horses and deer. A dual fuel log burning stove provides a centre piece to the room set on a slate tiled hearth and floating timber mantle. A study or third bedroom is situated on the ground floor along with a generous shower room with contemporary mounted wash basin, low level WC and heated towel rail. Plumbing for additional white goods and storage cupboards are fitted as well as housing the oil fired boiler.

The first floor landing houses the airing cupboard fitted with shelving and a light. Both bedrooms enjoy views to dual aspects and are generous doubles, both benefitting from fitted wardrobes. The stylish family bathroom had underfloor heating and comprises a modern white suite which features a mounted wash basin on a solid oak vanity unit with storage under, inset base unit, separate shower cubicle, low level WC and heated towel rail.


This charming cottage is approached over a winding forest driveway which serves the Bramble Hill Hotel and two further cottages enjoying an idyllic position on the open forest. A gravel parking area fronts the oak framed car port providing additional parking for two vehicles. The oil tank is discreetly screened by way of an enclosed cupboard to the rear of the car port. The adjoining workshop is fitted with power and light. The landscaped garden enjoys far reaching views over the National Park whilst enjoying a sunny south westerly aspect. Neatly enclosed with a combination of fencing and neat hedgerows, the manicured lawns are separated by a winding path to the front door with a Indian slate seating area bordered by well stocked flower beds perfectly positioned to sit and enjoy the picturesque surroundings. A useful log store is situated to the side of the building.


In addition to the majesty of the immediate New Forest countryside, the village of Bramshaw enjoys a thriving community centred around the active village hall, St Peters Church and the two country pubs in Brook which both offer delightful menus and hospitality. The Bramshaw Golf Club is the oldest in Hampshire, unusually providing two widely regarded 18 hole courses and centrally positioned in the village is the local shop, widely supported by the residents. Bramshaw's array of chocolate box cottages, impressive Manor Houses and farms scattered within the countryside serve to create the quintessential New Forest lifestyle for a variety of locals which is further blessed by its ideal commuter accessibility being just a short drive from junction 1 of the M27. Bramshaw offers all the perks of the stunning New Forest with the ease of access to excellent road, rail and air commutability.
