Welcome to Brook House
Brook House is a 35-bed residential home that has been converted from a Victorian country house with a purpose-built extension added in 1990 and a further extension in 2005. The home underwent a complete refurbishment in 2022 and now offers a beautifully modern, spacious home, with excellent facilities. It is set in two acres of land situated in the lovely, picturesque north-Essex village of White Colne, on the outskirts of Colchester. At the rear of the home is an enclosed garden, laid to lawn, flower beds and patio areas. Nearby are the towns of Halstead and Colchester.
