About this property
Little Gate House is an idyllic detached cabin sitting on its own, offering a haven for couples. The property was an original World War II Maycrete building surrounded by an area which once formed part of an RAF base. There are two air raid shelters that the Little Gate House has a view of. 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.
