About this property

  • The Bell Inn has been owned and operated by the Crosthwaite Eyre family for over 250 years, making it one of the oldest family owned Inns in Hampshire. Occupying a prominent position in the centre of Brook village, the Inn is renowned for its culinary excellence and high standards of service, most recently recognised in May 2018 by the award of a second AA Rosette. Built around 1865, the Forest Course is the oldest golf course in Hampshire. Situated on common land amongst rolling heathland and meandering streams, New Forest ponies and other livestock occasionally add to the natural and designed hazards on this historic course, which offers a completely different experience to the nearby Manor Golf Course. Opened in 1971 to a parkland design by Wilf Wiltshire for Sir Oliver Crosthwaite Eyre, the Manor Golf course, along with its modern, purpose built clubhouse, is situated adjacent to The Bell Inn. This well presented facility, with its nearby practice ground offers a more conventional golfing experience but still benefits from the attractive surroundings of the New Forest.

The Bell Inn and Bramshaw Golf Club comprises a 28 bedroom country inn with two 18 hole golf courses and a modern purpose built clubhouse.

Local information

  • The Bell Inn and Bramshaw Golf Club are situated in the village of Brook which is in the heart of the historic New Forest National Park and conveniently located approximately 1.4 miles (2.2 km) west of the 31/M27 junction; the latter connects to the M3 via Winchester to London.

Additional information

  • The Bell Inn is an attractive Grade II Listed building partly dating back to 1782, substantially extended between 1920 and 1989. The original building comprises two storeys of traditional brick construction under a pitched tile roof with attic accommodation and dormer windows. Adjoining this are two further brick built extensions under a pitched tile mansard and flat roof cover.
  • Located to the rear of The Bell Inn, the 18 hole Manor Golf Course was laid out over mature parkland of the Warrens Estate in 1970 to a design by Wilf Wiltshire, then club professional. The layout draws from its fine parkland setting, which includes 200 year old semi-ancient hardwood plantations set within the North East Conservation Area of the New Forest National Park.
  • The 18 hole Forest Course is located on Brook Common, 700 metres to the west of The Bell Inn and the Manor Course. It is served by a separate
  • stone chipping/grass car park for approximately 50 cars. There is also an overflow car park next to the 4th tee.
