The Hampshire 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.
