The property

The beautiful Grade II listed Mill House is one of the oldest properties in Maiden Newton near Dorchester, and oozes character, while maintaining some of the original features.

Situated next to the town’s historic mill, Mill House is ideal for families wanting to explore the area and beyond.

Guests will feel right at home in the property, and won’t have to go too far to relax after an enjoyable but busy day, in fact you’ll be spoilt for choice on where to unwind.

On entering the house, guests will find the sitting area complete with open fire and comfortable seating.

While directly opposite is the snug, which also boasts a fire place and more seating.

The large kitchen/diner makes meal preparation and dining a piece of cake, with easy access to the amenities, and plenty of seating to ensure a great family meal.

Younger members of the group won’t struggle to be entertained, with the first floor also possessing a games room that includes a pool table.

The final room on the ground floor is a bathroom.

Located on the house’s top two floors are the property’s stylish bedrooms, there are six in total with three on both the first and second floors.

Elsewhere on the first floor, they’ll be no fighting for the shower as there are two bathrooms.

Both the sitting area and snug have doors which lead out on to the large enclosed garden with patio an bbq area.

This area is enclosed and is adjacent to picturesque stream that feeds into the Mill, making it a great place to get away from it all with a nice drink or good book.

Off-road parking for three cars is available, while pets are also welcome.

Mill House is situated in a great location, and just a short walk away is the Jurassic Coast and entrance to the village centre, where guests will find shops and pubs to suit all tastes.

Just seven miles away is the nearby town of Dorchester (eight miles).

About the location


Weymouth 7 miles.

A trip to Dorset is not complete without visiting the market town of Dorchester, with its Roman roads, museums and a wide selection of pubs and restaurants. Enjoy a scenic walk around Maiden Castle, the largest hillfort in England, or visit the County Museum which has a room devoted to Thomas Hardy, born just two miles away in Bockhampton. Just seven miles away are the glorious gently shelving beaches and picturesque harbour of Weymouth, and the rugged peninsula of Portland, linked to the mainland by Chesil Beach, part of the breathtaking World Heritage Coastline. In fact, you’ll find yourself so intoxicated by Dorset’s magic spell, you won’t want to return home at the end of your stay!
