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.
