This lovely stone building is next door to The Old Coach House (24689) and in the courtyard of Brook House, which dates back to the 12th-century. Brook House is oozing in history, and has stood through many wars throughout its time. Many famous people from the past have visited this house, including Henry VII in 1499. Other famous visitors included Winston Churchill, Lloyd George, the Astor’s, the Prince of Wales (Edward VII) and Queen Mary. In the mid 1800’s the house was owned by the Seely family and one of the famous visitors to Brook House during Charles Seely’s ownership was Garibaldi, the Italian General and Politician. Jack Seely, who inherited the house from his father Charles, was Secretary of State for War at the outbreak of WWI, although he resigned due to being caught up in political difficulties with Ireland (the Curragh affair) and was replaced by General Kitchener. He fought in the war with his horse, Warrior, who became famous as the horse the Germans couldn’t kill. Today, the grounds of the property hold two self-contained properties (Westbrook ref 18919 and The Old Coach House ref 24689), which are situated in the peaceful and private Old Brook House Estate located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Westbrook is a charming property that has been renovated with style and comfort in mind, boasting a modern kitchen/diner, a cosy living room with a wood burner and three lovely bedrooms. Just across the courtyard you will find Westbrook’s own spacious fenced garden.

They both have views of the white cliffs of Freshwater Bay but it is also a great place to find fossils.
