About Julian and Caroline Brook-Fox

Caroline and Julian have loved living in the farmhouse for 20 years watching their family grow up after a busy life travelling around the world with the armed forces.

Julian and Caroline Brook-Fox purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Julian and Caroline Brook-Fox chose Bere Regis

We were lucky enough to be able to buy this small equestrian property whilst posted locally because we loved its rural aspect and yet it was very convenient for the local railway station and the coast. Hydeaway is close to our farmhouse,

What makes this apartment unique

The flat is very well situated for accessing all the very many local attractions yet is off the beaten track. As a result because there is so little light pollution you will rarely see the stars so clearly.!

Quiet yet not overly isolated. Very hospitable owner, made us feel very welcome

  • 4 of 5

We loved the quiet of the countryside and the horses in their paddocks. Lots of other wildlife around and a great site for exploring the Isle of Purbeck and the Jurassic Coastline.

Accommodation was very comfortable and practical and suited our needs perfectly.

I would definitely recommend this property.
