  • "Loved this house, comfortable sofa's and very clean."

    Beautiful location with the river running alongside the property, and two swans had settled across the river and visited us every day during our stay. It was very relaxing watching the many different varieties of birds. Clare who lived next door was lovely and made sure we had everything we needed, the welcome pack was very good. The village was very friendly and we settled in quickly. The only downside for us was there was nowhere in the village to eat out, the French restaurant is closed permanently and the fish and chip shop only opens Thursday and Friday evenings and the Chalk and Cheese pub didn't open at all but speaking to locals this isn't unusual. Stratton is only 4 miles down the road and we had a couple of lovely dinners at The Saxon Arms.

  • "Lovely, comfortable, well equipped cottage in an idyllic location."

    Only suggestion for improvement would be a blind in the ensuite window for privacy and to reduce early morning light coming into bedroom. We will happily book it again.

  • "Riverside is a lovely property and its layout takes full advantage of its unique riverside location."

    The decor is a mixture of contempory and period which suits the property perfectly. Large bifold doors open onto a private courtyard overlooking the river Frome and steps give access directly to the river bank. Prior to our stay we received a comprehensive welcome pack explaining everything about the property. Upon arrival we found essential provisions including milk, local cheese, bread, fresh coffee and wine in the fridge. Not long after our arrival we were greeted by Clare the housekeeper who shared her local knowledge of places to eat, local walks etc. If you are interested in wildlife and nature and are looking for a relaxing holiday then Riverside is the perfect choice

  • "Very comfortable, well equipped with a good log burner."

    Plenty of space for four and a picturesque outlook from the rear patio. Very helpful caretaker next door and handy local amenities (chippy, shop, garage).

  • "Fantastic cottage and location."

    Welcome pack was greatly received. One recommendation to the owner is to have black out blinds in the main bedroom and on suite bathroom, apart from that, we would highly recommend Riverside to others. Thank you

  • "The property is well maintained and exactly as described and pictured."

    You can see the lovely river out almost every window of the house and it makes for a nice way to pass the time watching the birds. We’ve visited in winter, it took us a few tries to sort out the heating but eventually got there and the wood burning stove made for cozy evenings in the very comfortable living room. The kitchen is well stocked and inviting. Upon arrival we recieved a nice gift of fresh bread, coffee, cheese, etc which made us feel very welcome. We stayed as a couple but the home would be very comfortable for a group of friends or a family. To see the sites requires a drive, but we managed to see Durdle Door, Lyme Regis and Swange all within 40 mins. I really enjoyed our stay here and would love to return in the future.

  • "What a lovely cottage."

    We had the best time here enjoying the local area on days out. The cottage was perfect for the four of us and our dog. Very well equipped and clean and we enjoyed the view of the river running alongside. We would thoroughly recommend it

  • "We had a great time at the cottage, it's a beautiful location and a very relaxing place to stay!"

    I should mention for others wanting to stay though that there were 5 adults (two couples and a single) and the single bed was not sufficient for an adult and extremely uncomfortable to sleep. My mum had to sleep on the sofa downstairs for the week which was disappointing. If the bed was for a young child it wouldn't have been an issue but I do think this should be made clear to anyone booking. On a small but much less important note, the pictures advertised of the cottage suggested a coffee machine would be available but it wasn't, just mentioning it so others know what to expect. Thanks for having us, hope the above feedback is useful :)

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the house was very well equipped having more extras than expected eg dog bowls and beds and a hair dryer."

    The whole family relaxed with space for young teenagers and the older generations to either come together or to be separate and do their own thing. I would definitely recommend this lovely house.

  • "Your cottage is beautiful and easily one of the best we have stayed in It is extremely well equipped with the highest quality of appliances and furniture, your showers are amazing."

    It is immaculately clean and well maintained, your housekeeper who lives next door was extremely helpful and friendly. It is in the most peaceful of locations by the river and is idyllic. The village is very well equipped, with a wonderful local shop selling quality produce and a Spar shop by the garage which is one of the best stocked Spar’s I have ever been in. The local Pub is well located and very friendly selling well made home cooked food with very friendly staff. The cottage is ideally located to explore the local area and coastline. All in all it was an absolute pleasure to stay in your cottage and we will certainly be recommending it to our friends and family and we will certainly be returning.

The property

Find this unique riverside cottage nestled in the charming village of Maiden Newton, providing a restful base for couples, friends or families looking to escape to the Dorset Countryside.

Riverside 67 Dorchester Road is sat in a dreamy location overlooking the flowing waters of the River Frome, boasting a relaxing riverside setting where you can enjoy many an hour in the peaceful surroundings.

On entering, hang up your coats and prepare for a cosy night in, letting the chef of the group rustle up a hearty meal in the well-equipped kitchen before gathering around the dining table for a night of wine and laughs.

Once the plates have been cleared away in the dishwasher, retire to the homely sitting room for a family film night in front of the crackling woodburning stove, sitting in a quirky Inglenook fireplace.

Alternatively, spend a night in your very own private courtyard observing and listening to the riverside wildlife.

As the evening draws to a close, find the inviting bedrooms upstairs, comprising a double room, a single with a truckle bed, and a master king-size with idyllic countryside views and its own en-suite shower room.

The rest of the rooms are served by a spacious bathroom where you can unwind with a relaxing soak in the freestanding bath or choose to step inside the gorgeous walk-in shower to wake up.

Make use of the river right on the property's doorstep, perfect for fly fishing for those illusive brown trout that do not want to be caught.

The bustling village centre of Maiden Newton welcomes you as you leave the front door, with a good selection of shops including a well stocked local village store, a pub as well as a convenient train station so you can easily explore the excitement of the surrounding area without a car.

Explore the nearby beaches along the seafront just a scenic drive away, spending a day at the quiet village of Burton Bradstock with golden sands and hidden coves, or head along to Bridport Harbour and West Bay Beach for a classic day at the seaside.

Weymouth is filled to the brim with exciting attractions including a picture-perfect beach, colourful huts, the popular SEA LIFE Centre and the renowned Sandworld attractions, as well as a wealth of shopping, pubs, restaurants and bars to choose from.

More local attractions include the Fleet Lagoon, Abbotsbury Swannery, Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens, and the incredible town of Lyme Regis, which hosts the Dinosaurland Fossil Museum, Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium, and the Lyme Regis Museum.

Make sure to take a trip out to the Isle of Portland for a memorable experience, or adventurers can relish in the choices of walking, cycling and hiking opportunities around the Dorset AONB, whilst the town of Dorchester is the perfect spot to immerse yourself in culture.

Enjoy a refreshing break with your loved ones at Riverside 67 Dorchester Road.
