“We had another great stay at Northbrook.

Whilst we had some rain it wasn’t too bad and we were able to catch up with family and friends over the days and evenings.
Please say thank you to your husband who we met one day on our way out. He invited us to look at your garden, which we did. A secret one and a delight when we found the fritillarys in flower with the daffodils and cowslips. We have managed for the 3rd year running to get them to flower here at home and now spreading in a bog garden (after many years trying different sites). Your husband also told us to check the photos in the Brook book in the house to see what the gardens had been like originally. So much history (and I hated History as a subject at school as I didn’t like the teacher!!!) and we were very taken with all the information about the house.
Being at North Brook (despite thinking that the stairs would defeat us, they didn’t) gave us a wonderful bird’s eye view for red squirrel watching as well as the crow family roost, jays, coal tits, peregrines, buzzards and onwards as the sun came into the sitting room in the afternoon.
The bread, milk and tea/coffee/jams were again very much appreciated. A very well equipped kitchen, thank you.
Hopefully we will be back next year.”

I’m finally back home and just wanted to drop you a quick note of thanks for our short holiday in your beautiful property. We all had an utterly delightful stay – most importantly, my mother did – which is what it was all about. We all particularly enjoyed your extremely thoughtful provisioning of the house, which made it a real home from home.

Dear Belinda & Geoff, Just a note to thank you for making our brief stay with you so interesting and enjoyable. We will never forget watching the red squirrels yesterday morning and will have to come back in a couple of years to see how the railway layout has progressed. Thank you again.
MR AND MRS M – B&B GUESTS NOVEMBER, 2014
Dear Belinda and Geoff (not forgetting Harley), Thank you for a very pleasant stay. You made us feel very welcome and it was lovely to have a few days to really relax and explore. Being able to browse in your library and find such interesting books – especially about Brook and its surroundings – was an added treat.
MRS M – B&B GUEST OCTOBER, 2014
We would like to thank you for everything; we had one of the best holidays in our lives here at Westbrook. The house is fantastic and the welcome gifts were perfect. Many thanks and Merry Christmas!

We had such a wonderful stay in your magnificent home that we had to write to express our gratitude. To have a weekend break in such a peaceful historic setting was in itself enough but with the added benefit of you making us feel so welcome. The location, so close to some great coastal walks, the pub with such great food, lovely grounds, and with easy access to the rest of the Island was in itself a great reason to stay with you. The fact that you were so both attentive, but also giving us time on our own was much appreciated. Memories of sitting in front of a log burner after an evening in the many local restaurants and pubs, having a night-cap, will stay with us for a very long time. We loved your breakfast and discussing our plans for the day and getting your advice and we will certainly come and see you again. Thank you once again for such an amazing visit which we would highly commend to anybody who needs a restful but fun break.

Thank you for a wonderful stay! Pleased to say that Westbrook is one of the most pleasant places to spend a break….

We just wanted to thank you for the opportunity of staying at Westbrook. None of us want to leave!
MR AND MRS A DECEMBER, 2013 WESTBROOK
We have talked about spending some time on the Isle of Wight and never got round to it until now. We booked into Brook House a couple of weeks ago and on our arrival were greeted warmly at the front door by Geoff. The house is very large and looked after well; we felt free to wander about and spent a short time in the library. From our arrival until our departure we felt part of the family. They could not do enough for us. The short holiday here exceeded our expectations and we will return if the opportunity arises.
MR AND MRS S – B&B GUESTS MAY, 2013
Just writing to thank you for an absolutely perfect weekend. We couldn’t have loved Brook House any more — the house is utterly beautiful, the setting and gardens idyllic, and you, Geoff, Becca and Ben (not to mention Gus and Rosie) were all so welcoming and kind. I’ve been trying to recapture the blissful sensation of hearing the breeze through my window since returning to London; despite the fact that we were accompanied by three girls aged four and under it was one of the more relaxing few days that I can remember and we all slept like a babies in your terribly comfortable beds. Thanks for a delicious supper on Friday and wonderful breakfasts each morning. The weekend will go down as the highlight of our summer and it certainly made my husband and me feel quite glad we’d moved to the UK
FM – B&B GUESTS AUGUST, 2012
Many thanks for making our stay at Brook House so memorable. Your hospitality, particularly Geoff greeting us at the door in butler’s attire, was outstanding; we loved the fact that you allowed us to share and enjoy your beautiful home. This generosity is what made the stay so different and we wished we’d got there earlier to indulge ourselves. We’ll be back sometime in the future when the breakfast table will be full and we can continue chatting ’til lunchtime. That’ll tickle you

What a good place for a family holiday – very well appointed house….
MRS H AND FAMILY JULY, 2012 THE OLD COACH HOUSE
We had a lovely family holiday. The house was comfortable, clean and relaxing. We loved the garden and the children loved the table tennis. We will be back.
