About Caroline Wallrock

Charlie and I are antique dealers and we have four children, one of whom helped decorate and furnish this wing of the house. We've travelled widely and lived overseas but always return to this beautiful part of the world.

Why Caroline Wallrock chose New Forest

Tweed House and Cloisters have a saucy history. Tweed House was built by Captain Symonds for his new bride Lucinde Touzi in 1815. They had met in the Caribbean as the result of incredible adventures. Captain Symonds rescued Lucinde from the siege of San Domingo, brought her back to England and married her once she came of age.

Later owners, the Moens, were kidnapped on their honeymoon in Sardinia. Mrs Moen was released and the people of Boldre chipped in to raise the ransom to free Mr. Moen.

Beautiful house for family get together

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend, three generations together plus the family dog. The accommodation was faultless; clean, beautifully furnished, huge rooms and very well equiped kitchen. The lovely big dining table allowed us to enjoy meals together and the tennis court and large garden to burn off those extra calories!

The location of 'Cloisters' is perfect for exploring the New Forest and the Red Lion pub just down the road can be recommended for Sunday Lunch.

A great place for a perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family getting together in the beautiful welcoming cloister was above anything we expected.

The house setting in a pastoral garden was big, comfortable and very welcoming.

Caroline and Charlie felt like welcoming family and assisted us with anything we needed.

Could not think of a better place to spend a vacation and can not wait to come back

Idyllic Week at the Cloisters, Boldre

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in this charming house. It is elegant, comfortable, everything well thought out so you can arrive with your family of all ages and there is something for them to do from tennis to table football, to watching a film or playing cards and bouncing on the trampoline. There was room for us all to be together and to get away from each other - perfect. The duvets were especially luxurious in our room and the beds very comfortable as well as being beautiful antiques. We loved the vast Victorian bath and basins, and the huge expanses of Victorian tiles, the wide staircase that you could walk two abreast. This is a place to come to for a real treat, a privilege.

Ideally located, spacious, wonderfully equipped property.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous holiday at Cloisters with the family. The house was perfect, very well equipped, super comfortable and elegantly decorated. The gardens are lovely with access to the tennis court. We had a memorable holiday thanks to the owner's tips and advice as well as the location. Thank you and we will definitely come back!

A great place to stay for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We decided to book this property for my girlfriends 50th birthday in order that all her family and friends could join us to celebrate, The property was in a great location in the countryside in the small village of Boldre and within walking distance of the local pub (Red Lion) which was a great country pub serving great pub food with a great choice of local beers and ales and reasonable prices, The property itself had two double rooms with en-suite and two twin rooms as well as two z-beds, We had full use of the garden including a trampoline and tennis courts and a bbq was included also, The house was great with plenty of room including a lounge and sitting/drawing room, a good size kitchen and toilets of both the ground floor and first floor, We would recommend that this property would greatly benefit from a double fridge in the kitchen and another large fridge/freezer in the utility room, We found that for ten people the current appliances were inadequate for those numbers had we decided to cook in the property every day, We would also recommend replacing the signs on the gate post but all in all we would strongly recommend this property for this type of event and we are most likely to return in the near future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for these tips. We will certainly look into supplying a larger fridge freezer in the kitchen or utility room. We are very lucky to have so many excellent pubs in the area and the Red Lion has the added attraction of being a short walk away.

The New Forest is one of England's gems. The rural landscape of forest and heathland is less than two hours from London but seems a world away. The New Forest ponies graze on the common heathland and are joined by donkeys, cattle, and even pigs in the autumn. An extensive network of walking and bicycle trails make the area easy to explore. Minutes away are beaches along the Solent. Lymington is home to a vibrant boating community. The Isle of Wight is easily reachable by ferry. The New Forest is easily accessible by car or train. Or sail into Lymington.
