About the location

Okeford Fitzpaine

Sturminster Newton 4 miles.

Surrounded by a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the village of Okeford Fitzpaine boasts a lively shop and local pub, with further shopping facilities at nearby Sturminster Newton. 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!

Peace and quiet and good situation. Very friendly and helpful owners.

Mr Duckworth, Waterlooville, December 2013

We had a wonderful time at Oke Apple Cottage. We wanted to escape to somewhere quiet in the country and relax; the cottage and location were perfect. The owner was friendly and helpful. The cottage was lovely inside; well furnished, comfortable and with everything we needed.

Miss Owen, Sutton, October 2013

The attention to detail was fabulous, the beds crisp, comfy and clean. The outstandingly beautiful setting and wonderfully comfortable cottage. A perfect romantic hideaway.

Ms Portelli, London, October 2013

The overall condition and layout of the cottage was superb, and the owner was welcoming and helpful. Nothing could be faulted.

Mr Gibson, Dursley, October 2013
