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.

Living room open plan with kitchen/dining room with wood-burning stove and double French doors to large area of south-facing decking. Cosy double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Wooden floors throughout.

    Our fifth visit to The Litle Gate House and the most enjoyable so far. Ideally placed for walking and cycling in a beautiful part of the New Forest. The property has an excellent verandah which is ideal to sit and watch the abundant wildlife in the surrounding fields and trees. Also, the fenced area is ideal if you have a dog, as we do. Hope to return again next year!

    Clear & precise directions made it easy to find. A welcome pack of biscuits & toiletries a lovely touch. We found wonderful walks to go with our dog & an excellent pub nearby. Little Gatehouse is a cosy retreat & owners are not intrusive but could be contacted if needed .... but that was not necessary. We had a lovely week.

    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.
