Living in the heart of the New Forest

In the heart of the New Forest, Woodpeckers is built around a fine Arts and Crafts home, offering residential and nursing care in a secluded yet vibrant environment. Woodpeckers lies on the edge of Brockenhurst, with the New Forest in view, but the ample facilities and life of this popular village in easy reach. Ponies, donkeys and even deer graze peacefully at the roadside, while the traditional interiors of the home draw you in to its warmth and sociable ambiance.

Our Garden

We pride ourselves on our beautiful and stimulating gardens. We recognise that many of our residents had such gardens themselves, and that gardening may have been a special pastime for them. We like to think that we can offer residents the opportunity to continue that pastime in whatever way they feel appropriate.
