Blandford Forum 11 miles.
The small market town of Sturminster Newton is set on the banks of the River Stour, reached via a graceful, six arch 15th century bridge, carrying a warning of deportation for those who damage it! The whole area acted as inspiration for the works of Thomas Hardy, who wrote Return of The Native, whilst living in the town. The region is dotted with thatched cottages, rural walks, stunning country views, and fascinating towns, such as Sherborne, with its abbey and castle, whilst the beautiful Dorset Heritage coastline is also within easy reach, making this an ideal base all year round!

The welcoming and the beautiful country. A cottage that really offered everything!
Mrs Luijckx, Antwerp, August 2012
Scenery, good food, lots of walks.
Mrs Arnold, Canvey Island, August 2012
The attention to detail in the cottage especially the items for young children ie the fitted stair gate and blackout blinds in the bedrooms was excellent. Cleanliness was of a very high standard. The location was very good for attractions whatever the weather and the owners were very approachable if needed. They have obviously worked very hard to create a property of a very high standard which added to the enjoyment of our holiday.
Mr Holleran, Leeds, August 2012
Everything was perfect and the owners were lovely too.
