  • "We had a wonderful holiday at Belview Cottage - the photos looked really good when we booked, but they don't really do it justice."

    The cottage is in a fabulous rural location with a lovely garden and is very peaceful with just the sounds of birds to wake up to. The nearby Blackmore Vale area is excellent for walking and there are dedicated cycle trails nearby. Great pubs with good food too. The cottage itself is spacious, well equipped with quality applicances, warm, comfortable and above all immaculately clean and well decorated. It has everything you might want including electric car charger and super fast broadband. We've never before stayed in a cottage that we'd give top marks to on all aspects. Outstanding.

    Thank you so much for your kind words - it's good to know guests appreciate our hard work maintaining the cottage to a high standard. Thank you for leaving it in excellent order - much appreciated. You would be most welcome to stay here again. Property Owner

  • "'Belview' is one of the cleanest, best equipped and comfortable holiday cottages we have stayed in."

    The location is very rural, quiet and with lovely views across the Dorset countryside. The cows were curious but friendly. Gillian and Brian were discrete hosts but made us feel very at home with a welcome-pack of local produce. A nice touch. There are a good number of nice places to eat in the area but we would recommend booking ahead to avoid disappointment. We would certainly recommend a stay there.

  • "Belview Cottage was immaculate and had everything we could possibly have needed, including a very generous welcome pack of Dorset food goodies."

    Gillian, the owner, was extremely pleasant but not intrusive. The cottage was set in idyllic peaceful countryside (apart from the cows mooing and tractors trundling past!). We look forward to returning next year. Val and Adrian Filmer.

  • "This was a last minute booking and we couldn’t have been more pleased with Belview Cottage."

    It was so clean and the facilities were excellent. Gillian and Brian had thought of everything to make your stay very comfortable. The location also was great, especially if you are looking to get away from everything. Great if you like walking but also areas you can drive to within 30mins. Fully recommend and I hope to book again next year.

  • "We've stayed in a number of cottages across the UK and this genuinely was the cleanest we've stayed in."

    The owners took great care to ensure we had a great experience from start to finish. It is a very well equipped and cosy cottage to return to after a day out exploring. Good location with lots of Dorset's star attractions within easy driving distance.

  • "The cottage was lovely ,but the bedroom on the front room was not very good for a double bed ,with the eves slopping far to much ."

    one room up stairs would better

    We are sorry that you were not happy with the double bedroom. The rooms are described fully in the advert and can also be seen in the photographs. It is up to guests to check the properties suitability for their requirements before they make a booking. We took on the cottage as an existing holiday let business with two bedrooms. To convert it to one bedroom would require considerable expense on structural work and re-decoration and would also limit our pool of potential guests to couples or single adults only instead of families and friends. As we are unable to do this at present, we do our best to make sure that all other aspects of the property are presented and maintained to the highest standards we can achieve, as proven by our annual Four Star with Gold Award under the Visit England Quality Assessment Scheme. We have let this property for over 12 years with many satisfied guests, including several who make frequent return visits. Property Owner

    The cottage was absolutely immaculate - the best we have ever stayed in!

  • "The cottage is still very new and beautifully equipped, the lounge is lovely and comfortable for relaxing."

    The kitchen is superbly fitted out and easy to use with every little detail thought of. The bedrooms are warm and well lit, the only fly in the ointment being the roofline either side of the dormers, which in the double room, entailed my climbing over the bed as banging my head (my fault) was a bit wearing. The location is wonderful and funny and the satnav struggled but always got us within 200mts. Overall a wonderful escape.

    All the furniture, bedding, towels, crockery and cutlery were of a high standard. Owners not intrusive, very nice and helpful should we have needed something. Beautiful outlook, and a lovely neat sun trap garden, very well cared for gardens all around. Could not fault it.

About the location

STURMINSTER NEWTON

Blandford Forum 11 miles.

The small, attractive 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 to those who may 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 Coast is also within easy reach, making this an ideal base all year round!
