The Central Southern England region
The cottage is in the magnificent area of the New Forest close to the South Coast. Mockbeggar is 15 miles from the coastline opposite the Needles on the Isle of Wight. The famous beaches of Bournemouth are to the South West, and the cathedral city of Salisbury is to the North. 10 minutes drive takes you to the market town of Ringwood, recently voted one of the UK's top 10 market towns.
The New Forest is an area of outstanding beauty with open countryside freely inhabited by donkeys, cattle and ponies. As a national park, the whole area is open for visitors to enjoy. Within the park the quaint towns of Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst, Beaulieu and Burley are all worth a visit. You'll soon understand why people are drawn back to this area year after year
Children activities near by include Moors Valley, Paultons Park, Longdown Activity Centre and Monkey World to name a few. Adults who are garden lovers, can treat themselves to Exbury gardens and the little known Applecourt garden. An hour to the east is Portsmouth with it's historic dockyard and Spinaker Tower.
The cottage is ideally located to take full advantage of all that the New Forest and the Hampshire coast have to offer.
Situated in the unspoilt west of the New Forest lying between the towns of Ringwood and Fordingbridge, the cottage makes a perfect base for walking and cycling.
The River Avon and the Avon Valley foot path are on the doorstep with 3 good pubs/restaurants within a 5 minute drive.

"A great place to stay especially at Christmas"
Cottage was excellent and good value. The Xmas tree and lights round the open fire place were a nice and welcoming touch by the owners. Great place to stay - warm and cosy. Plenty of space and great playroom over the garage. Good communication with the owners and speedy return of security deposit. Lots to do within easy reach of the cottage.

"A perfect break"
We stayed at the cottage for the first time in mid October and found it to be all we could ask for. We booked the same day as we arrived due to being let down by another property and we found booking arrangments and the welcome provided by the owner really helpful.
With a group of six we were very comfortable and found all the rooms to be spacious with good storage space. The cottage location was ideal with delightful walks from the back garden gate and it was well placed to explore the New Forrest area . The seperate play area for the grandchildren was a real bonus.
We had not visitd the New Forrest before and after visting the many local tourist attractions it was lovely to come back to the warmth of a log fire in a cottage with everything you needed .
We are looking forward to our next stay already .

"Charming,romantic well equipped house offering everything you need."
We returned for the second time (after 2011) to this lovely romantic cottage, because we (family of four) already enjoyed our first relaxing visit very much: We didn't regret it a single minute. Well and delightful and charming furnished rooms, that offer evrything you need, especially the kitchen. All the amentities and electric devices are easy to handle- even for tourists from the continent - so we and the kids enjoyed the tranquillity, the ponies trotting by the garden fence, the little rabbits and birds in the garden and the magic surroundings. The newly arranged garden gives you enough space for games with the kids, picnics or even quiet sunbathes. Or just open the garden backdoor and immmediately find yourselves in the farn and heather of new forest. The rooms are lovingly decorated and individually arranged, what we really appreciated. Enough space for everybody to retire and enjoy a good book or short nap. Beautyful views from the windows. Everything was very clean, we can't complain. Only one suggestion: There should be a larger van in the en suite bathroom, which makes it dry faster.
Great place to make daily excursions even to places a bit further away i.e. Jurassic coast, Winchester or Chichester. The pubs beeing recommended by the management are worth a walk.
In case there should be any questions during your stay the management responds very fast and friendly. Thanks to them again.
To summarize it: We enjoyed it and definitely intend to come back.

"Beautiful cottage in a stunning location!"
We absolutely love this cottage. We stayed here with our friends to get away from the rush of suburban life. We often go camping in the new forest for its beautiful surroundings, we upgraded to this c… More

"Overpriced, dirty and in need of a makeover..."
I should have known what to expect after the horrendous experience of trying to pay for the cottage and get a booking confirmation. I e-mailed the owner around 4-5 times over a 2 week period before f… More
We thank you for your review. We are surprised that you did not try to contact us during your stay or afterwards to discuss any of the issues you raised. This would have given us the opportunity to address your concerns.
Just to clarify you paid £900 for the week, not £1200 as you have stated. From receiving your initial enquiry to confirming your deposit was completed within 4 days and 3 e-mails. You final balance was confirmed within 3 e-mails, one of which was your arrival details. This is comparable to all our other guests.
We do keep the cottage to a high standard and spend a minimum of 8 hours cleaning in a 4 hour window on change-over day.
We note most of your photos are of the playroom above the garage with it's velux roof windows and wooden stairs. The playroom is not kept to the same standard as the cottage. It is cleaned weekly, but with bear wooden floors and children coming in from the garden, the wood is stained.
With regard to your other comments:
We are aware of the paintwork around the bath and have commented in the book to this effect. We are coming to the end of the summer season of back-to-back bookings which don't allow us to paint between guests. Our decorator is scheduled to come in at the end of September for the annual redecoration.
The oven is 2 years old and is cleaned weekly.
We regularly review our prices with similar properties in the New Forest area and know we are competitive.

"Lovely situation - very comfortable"
A super situation, tucked out of the way with direct access to the New Forest from the back gate,
Some quirks, as to be expected in a property originally built in the 18thC, particularly the staircase, though the owner has said she will provide a stair-gate for young children.
Very comfortable beds, but not much room in the en-suite shower room!
A great games room for the children.

"Perfect Cottage Experience"
My friends and I spent 2 nights here during November 2012 and really enjoyed our stay.
Great location not far from major towns although Ringwood has all you really need.
Everything was great about the actual cottage. Great information about the area left for us to look over, everything was super clean and cosy.
Mattresses/pillows/duvets were like heaven!
We spent a far bit of time exploring the area. Just down the drive there is a massive field where horses graze. The horses must be used to people. They were very interested in getting up close and personal.
Woke up one morning to a cow blocking the exit gate and it was quite the experience to encourage him further down the road.
Make sure you head south to the water. We spent 1/2 a day in Bournemouth which was fantastic. Lovely views and a great coastal atmosphere.
Locals were all very lovely and more than happy to recommend places to see/go.
A great weekend getaway with none of us wanting to leave at the end of our stay!

"Perfect! Clean, peaceful, tastefully furnished."
We wish we had more time to spend at the cottage and explore the beautiful New Forest which was literally out the back door. There was so much to see in the surrounding area we had no problem filling … More
