The property

Maple Cottage is a unique, spaciously designed, ground floor accommodation resting near the pretty market town of Sturminster Newton.

Walk or cycle down the 3/4 mile long tarmac driveway suitable for children to ride on their bikes.

With a quirky interior boasting quality, antique furnishings, the cottage sleeps up to four guests.

Perfect for families and friends, the two welcoming bedrooms come appointed with luxurious all-white linens adorning sumptuous beds, both refreshing places to catch your rest.

The open-plan living space boasts beautiful upholstery and luxurious seating, providing guests a comfortable stay in a peaceful, rural location.

On a cold winter's evening you have the benefit of the open fire, a focal point in the room, drawing your attention to the thoughtful layout of furnishings.

The well-equipped kitchen rests in the centre of the cottage; fully integrated with a galley-style formation to suit your needs.

Just off from here are the king-size and twin bedrooms alongside an ultra-modern bathroom, assisting you each morning and evening of your stay.

Take the time to appreciate the countryside surroundings, engulfing the cottage in a serene wildlife haven, clustered among rolling pastures and textured landscapes, all to be enjoyed from the enclosed front garden.

About the location


Dorchester 12 miles; Sherborne 12 miles.

The West Dorset village of Buckland Newton, and its seven surrounding hamlets including Brockhampton, is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of Blackmore Vale, and at the head of the quaintly named Piddle Valley. The village is 12 miles south of historic Sherborne and 12 miles north of Thomas Hardy's Dorchester. Locally there are lovely scenic walks to be had, while a visit to nearby ancient Cerne Abbas is not to be missed, with its instantly recognisable chalk giant and numerous tea rooms and inns serving real ales and good food. Alternatively, travel south to the memorable Dorset Jurassic Coast, now a designated World Heritage Site, where many sandy beaches await you and provide visitors with great facilities for all kinds of water sports. Weymouth offers golden sandy beaches and a bustling harbour from which you can take a day trip to the Channel Islands. A short drive from here takes you to Portland Harbour and the rugged “Isle” of Portland, which is linked to Weymouth by dramatic Chesil Beach. With fascinating Sherborne and bustling Dorchester also just a short drive away, you really are spoilt for choice in this lovely part of Dorset.
