Little Popes is located in the desirable, pretty village of Brook in the New Forest National Park, just one mile from J1 of the M27.
Brook has three great pubs, two of which are just a stone's throw from Little Popes. For those who love golf, Bramshaw Golf Club is located right next door. With New Forest ponies, donkeys, cows and pigs grazing freely in Brook, this cottage really is located in the heart of all that makes living in the New Forest so wonderful.
The cottage has origins dating back to the late 1400's and is an iconic cottage within the village.
In the 1980's we understand that the cottage was completely stripped back, leaving just its timber skeleton. It was then rebuilt brick by brick under the supervision of English Heritage.
Downstairs, life centres around the Kitchen/Dining/Family Room, which is a light and airy space, and is fitted with cream units. There is a Butler sink as well as butcher block worktops and an island unit, all in keeping with a traditional country kitchen.
The dining area manages to be spacious as well as cosy and features a lovely inglenook fireplace with a wood effect gas fire. This room in turn leads into a double aspect reading/day room. This delightful room enjoys all day sunshine, a cosy window seat, and has doors that lead out onto a private decked sun terrace with views over the gardens.
The lounge/family room has a triple aspect and boasts wooden beams, an inglenook fireplace with a wood effect gas fire, and stairs up to the first floor.
There is also a boot room and a downstairs full bathroom on the ground floor.
The first floor is very typical of a thatched cottage of this era, with low, beamed ceilings and low doorways, and a few low level windows.
There are four bedrooms in total and two shower rooms (one ensuite).
There is a range of outbuildings, which lend themselves to a variety of uses and opportunities.
In the garden, there is a large garden room with bi-fold doors along two sides, allowing the room to be opened up fully during warmer weather. This room is presently used as a music room/games room.
At the end of the gravelled driveway and parking area, there are three garages attached to a workshop and further outbuildings. These have been partially converted inside, and offer a further great opportunity.
