With an abundance of woodlands quite literally on your doorstep, you can expect fresh air adventures aplenty from Little Patch; with bike-riding, deer spotting, and pub pottering all on the itinerary. When you are all ready to head home, just follow the donkeys and ponies down the lane, where creature comforts await…

Whilst the blackened cladding pops against the flora & fauna outside; inside your ‘luxe lodge’, natural and calming hues welcome you to soak up the good life in complete comfort. From the top-notch styling, to the green-filled scenes that surround, everything here is served with a very generous helping of Hamptons-chic.

After a busy day, we can think of nothing cosier then settling in together by the living room’s roaring fire, or having a read-a-thon (or catnap) in the annexe… what a cherry on top. For tomorrow’s plans, we’d highly recommend factoring in a breakfast with birdsong, and a supper under the stars from your porch & veranda– just WOW!

Pssst- Whilst your idyllic Mockbeggar location encourages you to get completely off grid, the buzzy town of Ringwood is not far and perfect for stocking-up and eating out!

Highlights staying at this house and in the local area...

All the essential details.

Here's your full run down of this place, inside and out...


You’ll feel like you’re cocooned in the treetops from Little Patch as your leafy lodge boasts a VIP forest location with views to-boot. We love how everything feels top-notch and luxe here, with Hampton-esque style references and gorgeous natural textures throughout (linen, leather, and sisal galore!).

With a cosy annexe that’s perfect for late night chatter & games, a spacious living room to sink back and relax, and a light-filled kitchen to flow around in – you’re spoilt for choice with where to spend your time.

There’s plenty of room for everyone to make themselves at home, but we especially love the HUGE window seat in the living room for reading and/or catnapping - pop the record player on for extra effect! The large TV here also offers rest bite after a busy day, and feels extra snuggly with the fire on during the colder months.

You may find the gorgeous glass framed kitchen inspires everyone on the guest list to whip up something yummy, and we love how you can spill out onto the porch for alfresco suppers under the stars. You’ll also spot the annexe here which offers the perfect place for movie nights and games- It’s a great multi-functional space in the day too with windows that make the most of your glorious leafy views!

The three bedrooms all face the hillside where you’ll overlook lovely green-filled holly & hedgerow scenes. You may well spot ponies and deer from here too, and you’ll be sure to hear the owls come nightfall. The two double rooms are a good size, whilst the twin is perfectly formed for younger guests.

There are two family bathrooms. The one nearest the twin room is the biggest and built by someone who likes to spend time luxuriating in a big bath. The second shower room has a really good size walk in shower.

There is also a small utility room & WC just off the kitchen for washing and drying kit- everything is on-hand to help settle you in to country living!

The verandah wraps around the front of the house and there are two Adirondack chairs by the front door. This is the spot for the best view.

The view here is bucolic and gentle. From the house you can see down through the oak tree canopies and into the water meadow valley below. So in autumn you can see the naughty pigs on their explorations from time-to-time.

The terrace sits between the house and the annexe. There’s plenty of room here for the outdoor table (seats 6). The cabana is part of the annexe and has a good wicker sofa which is well set in away from the rain, so you can relax outside here and enjoy the wilder weather in the dry.

Below the house and parking area there are 2 more wooden Adirondack chairs.

** HOT TUB INFO - you may notice there is a hot tub in pics at the property, however this is currently not in use**.
GardenThe kitchen room has double doors that open up onto a small terrace. To the left, with access from the kitchen door, is another terrace with a solid table for outdoor meals. This seats 8. Plus
There is a charcoal Weber BBQ for guests to use. The forest private garden is all about the cabana room and entertaining simply in style.
ParkingParking for 3 cars outside the house. The drive is steep and gravel so not for nervous drivers.

Home truths

The gravel track to the house and the driveway itself are steep, and you will need to take it steady to get up to the parking area.

There is an extra charge for logs and kindling to burn on the fire (October- March) but feel free to BYO!


The drive is steep and may won't suit those who have very limited mobility.

Whilst you can park within 10 metres of the front door, there are 15-20 steps to climb up to get there.

Location, location, location...

Little Patch is positioned within the quintessential New Forest landscape of Mockbeggar (near Ringwood), where you can expect to see donkeys and horses roaming free amongst thatched cottages and abundant countryside.

Out of your back gate, you'll enjoy direct access to the open forest, with cross-country walks that take you via shallow brooks for paddling in, or picnicking by. The Alice Lisle pub offers great grub, and is less than a mile walk away, often with the ice-cream van parked en-route for a post-lunch or dinner treat on the way home.

Exploring the Hampshire / Dorset coast is also easy from here (Mudeford, with it's water sports and crabbing is 30 minutes away and Boscombe beaches just 25 minutes) & there are plenty of family-friendly activities, such as the New Forest Water Park, Moors Valley Country Park and the Dorset Heavy Horse Farm Park, which are all between 10 and 20 minutes away.

The house is in the far western limit of the National Park. The 'village' (it's tiny and has no shops) area feels very Hampshire; safe, pretty and perfect. It's really only the naughty pigs that defy any behaviour codes here!

The Thakker family July 2023

The property and location were idyllic. My son loves horses and there were wild horses with fouls walking around and grazing everywhere. It was a stone’s throw from a lovely pub with great food and service. The walks nearby were beautiful and variety of landscapes to enjoy. The property was perfect for our needs.

Lovely, charming place for relaxing in the New Forest area. We would stay again.

Chris and family January 2022

A well presented and fully equipped property that met our expectations.

Steve December 2022

By far one of the best luxury properties from Air B’n’B out of a good few that lives up to it’s standards. Beautifully presented, even had a Christmas tree, lighting and decorations visible upon arrival! With careers in Hospitality and Property I found this very impressive! Everything as described. Just be prepared for quite a muddy and dark trail for the final stint of driving on arrival. However if you read the instructions beforehand it’s no problem at all. These fantastic hosts left the most thoughtful hamper of local snacks and LED torches for the dark. I would say that I find Air B’n’Bs check in times of 4pm and check out times of 10am extremely unfair, but this is the case for most properties and mostly made up for at Rachel’s by the attention to detail. Thank you so much. Again everything absolutely amazing. Just checking in and out times only downfall. Still 10/10 :)

Joe December 2022

What a gorgeous place to stay! Thank you very much for your hospitality and for the lovely welcome treats! This has definitely given us some house inspo! Would love to come back with friends again soon x

Stuart, Lauren and Isabel Oct 2022

We enjoyed the stay. It is a lovely getaway and I loved watching the pigs, cows and horses. Thank you for letting us stay here. I would give this a 10 out of 10. We saw 101 wild horses. Thank you for the stay and thank you for everything.

Newbold family Oct 2022

Thank you for a beautiful stay at Little Patch. This place felt like a luxury. The hamper of goodies was a pleasant surprise along with the activity pack for the kids. Thank you.

We've had a lovely stay at Little Patch, the house is so nice and has everything we needed and more. It's been a special few days, made even more special by watching all the animals (deer, horses, cows, rabbits, bats, swallows). Would love to visit again.

Weetch, Barrows and Boulle family. June 2022

Little Patch is a beautifully presented 'home from home' with such attention to detail, which makes it really special. Perfect surroundings for a relaxing and peaceful stay.
