Little Gate House is a cosy peaceful holiday retreat ideal for couples, nestled in the heart of the New Forest National Park.

Little Gate House is an idyllic detached cabin sitting on its own offering a haven for couples. Located a short drive up a forest track, it is nestled in the heart of the western edge of the New Forest. Well-designed, it offers a compact yet light and airy space. The property sits in a south-facing elevated position overlooking the owner’s 3½-acre grounds and is approximately 100 yards away from the owner’s house which provides a good degree of seclusion and privacy with views across fields and the forest beyond. The property is surrounded by an abundance of wildlife including herds of deer, foxes, badgers, buzzards and other birds including heron, tawny owls and woodpeckers. The open New Forest is directly on the doorstep providing 140,000 acres of off road walking, riding and cycling, yet there is quick and easy access to all main roads for visitors to explore the many villages, towns, cities and beaches that Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire have to offer. Riding stables 1 mile, watersports/fishing 2 miles, award-winning farm shop and café ½ mile, lovely thatched pub and restaurant 1 mile. Local towns Fordingbridge 2½ miles and Ringwood 5 miles. Shop ½ mile, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Little Gate House is a clean, comfortable and cosy cottage with an interesting history. Despite arriving while snow was on the ground, it was very warm and welcoming. Carl and Jo were friendly and we much appreciated them phoning us a couple of times before we left home to give us snow reports. The cottage's close proximity to the excellent - and walkable - Royal Oak was a bonus. Definitely hope to return.

    We have just returned from our fourth stay at the Little Gate House so it goes without saying that we love it. The LGH is very well equipped for a comfortable stay. The bed is very comfortable, the kitchen has everything that you might need and the living room looks out over fields so that you can watch the horses grazing. There is a spacious balcony from where you can sit and watch the abundant wildlife - we saw woodpeckers, buzzards, rabbits, etc. but most impressively a herd of approximately 20 deer which appeared in the fields throughout our stay. The best thing about the LGH is the location. It is situated in a beautiful corner of the new forest and is ideally located for walking and cycling. Fordingbridge, a charming town, is also nearby. Whichever direction you head in you are guaranteed stunning scenery. The owners, Carl and Jo, ensure that you have everything that you will need but otherwise leave you to enjoy your holiday. It is also ideal for dog owners as there is a fenced area of grass which is ideal for them to play. We very much hope to return next year!
