  • "We had a wonderful stay at the cottages."

    They were clean and just like in the pictures. The owners had put some lovely touches of fresh flowers and home made flapjacks. The fridges all had milk and the basic essentials were all there for us. Would definitely come back as couldn’t fault it. Thank you for creating such a great place to stay.

    Hi - thank you so much for your lovely feedback and I am so glad that you had a great time. We like our guests to arrive to a nice cup of tea and some homemade cake so it's always good to hear that it is appreciated! Thanks Anna Property Owner

    The cottages are so well appointed and they’re situated in beautiful countryside. Rose cottage is perfect as the main base to host meals (the kitchen was really well thought about) and the other cottages were great to retreat to! They had everything you would need and the owners were really easy to communicate with. We loved it so much we're already planning our next stay!

    Ah thank you Abi - you were lovely guests and clearly made the most of the cottages and our surroundings. We would love to have you back and I hope your Mum had a great birthday. Anna Property Owner

    The property was warm, comfortable and well-equipped. We used all three cottages and the layout worked well. The games room was a great success and there was plenty of room in Rose Cottage for us all to eat and socialise together. For families when the weather is dry but cool we recommend the Detective Treasure Trail in Blandford Forum.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, I am so glad that you had a good weekend! I have never heard of the Detective Treasure Trail in Blandford but will certainly be giving that a go with our children. Maybe see you again another weekend! Anna Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Newfield Cottages."

    It was the perfect location for our large family gathering of ten adults and two children. The flow of the rooms meant we could enjoy time together eating, chatting and playing games or settle into a comfy chair to read and relax. The beds were comfortable and it was perfect having so many bathrooms. The games room was enjoyed by us all and we appreciated the welcoming flowers, eggs, cakes and milk.

    The cottages were beautiful and clean, there was plenty of space for all of us and we were all really comfortable. Really peaceful location and fairly easy to find. Anna was easy to get in touch with and there was tea/coffee, milk, eggs and lemon cake in each cottage which was a lovely touch! We didn't bring kids with us, but the cottages were very child friendly - they'd thought of everything as there were even kids books in the bunk bed rooms and lots of games for kids in the games room. The beds were really comfortable - the whole place was just perfect. We were all absolutely thrilled and are already planning on coming back.

    The location was beautiful and calm and very child friendly. The indoor spaces accommodated our wide variety of ages and abilities perfectly. Our only qualm was that two of the washing machines weren’t also dryers as expected and there weren’t many clothes-horses to dry the laundry on. But other than that we were extremely satisfied with our stay!

    Hi Bethiah, thank you so much for your feedback, I will be sure to put some further clothes airers in the cottages for future guests. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again one day. Thanks Anna Property Owner

  • "We had a fabulous stay at Newfield Farm."

    The arrangement of the cottages was perfect for our large family gathering and we particularly appreciated the dining area and kitchen in Rose which made catering for large numbers so easy. We thoroughly enjoyed an extremely tasty Friday night supper courtesy of Anna and the homemade cakes were a welcome treat. The large undercover seating area outside meant we could gather outside well into the evening and enjoy the peace of the countryside. The drive up to the farm was extremely rocky in places, making those of us without 4x4s wince slightly but that is the only thing that would deter us from staying again, despite that I would love to return again next year.

    There were 20 of us, (that included 6 children) and there was plenty of room in Rose cottage for them to enjoy their stay without annoying the adults. On the second night we had dinner for all of us and there was sufficient cutlery, crockery and cooling utensils for us to cook our own meal. The dishwashers were also very helpful. It was also helpful to have facilities in the other smaller cottages to relax and sleep without disturbing others. The playroom was a bonus. The accommodation was exactly as described and met the expectations of all and, as the age range was 4 to 76 years, that was no mean feat! There were also 2 small dogs in the party.

    Prior to our arrival, we had had contact with the owner and she was extremely helpful. When we arrived, we were thrilled to discover that all three cottages had been decorated for Christmas. In addition to the spotlessly clean accommodation, we had been provided with tea, coffee, biscuits, eggs and milk. Although we spent the majority of time in Rose Cottage, it was very useful to have the other two for food preparation and a separate living space. All three cottages were cosy and warm and well equipped and we didn't need anything in the way of utensils. On our first evening there was a storm (unbeknown to us there was also a powercut) but the owner contacted us to make sure we were okay and that everything was alright. The fenced off area was great for the dog (under supervision) and it would be a delightful venue for a summer weekend for a large group as there are picnic tables outside, as well as a cosy autumn or winter break. Highly recommended and many thanks.

    So this is 3 seperate cottages, all with their own kitchens, lounges and dining areas. Combined outside area, which is a good size, with garden furniture and gas barbecue. Ping pong table for outside games. You could easily have 20 adults and have plenty of space inside and out. We were a large family group. Parking, we had 8 cars and there was space for more, you block each other in, but that was fine. Local pub, The Anvil, was a 40 minute stroll, you could go cross country or road, decent food and the staff very proactive with covid precautions. Cottages all clean on arrival, with covid paperwork. Felt clean, safe and welcoming. Phone reception was hit and miss, but WiFi was decent. This property is rural, and on a working farm, which was lovely and looked well kept. Lots to do locally, cider farm, brewery in Blandford, national trust properties galore, and lots more, really good location. You need a car, public transport look limited. I would recommend this property, and hope to return.

The property

Blandford Forum 3.7 miles.

Newfield Holiday Cottages is made up of three separate cottages situated within a lovingly converted barn.

The cottages are Rose Cottage, Forget Me Not Cottage and Bluebell Cottage, each cottage has its own individual character and charm which together with the expansive outdoor space is perfect for family gatherings and groups of friends.

All three cottages have spacious, open plan living and kitchen areas with Rose Cottage seating up to 20 guests in one large dining area.

With such well equipped kitchens you’ll be able to rustle up a family-favourite feast in no time, perfect for celebratory meals at the large dining table, as well as this space being great for an afternoon of board games.

Choose to gather together in the spacious sitting room and toast to a marvellous holiday with the woodburning stove offering an extra sense of comfort in the cooler months, or break off into separate groups and relax into one of the plush sofas in the open-plan living spaces.

The flexible bedroom layouts across the cottages make sleeping arrangements easy to organise and there is a large comfortable seating area in Rose Cottage where you can all gather for relaxing evenings indoors when you’re not exploring the excitement of Dorset.

Offering a games room too with table football and table tennis, the cottages provide hours of fun for all ages.

Be sure to make the most of your outdoor space, where the little ones and your canine companions can play freely as you enjoy alfresco dining in the form of a barbecue in the summer months.

Newfield Holiday Cottages sits in the middle of the countryside and is walking distance from an excellent Farm Shop and a couple of local pubs serving great food, offering everything you could possibly need just a scenic stroll away.

Although the dwelling is set in a rural location, you and your group will enjoy making the most of the walking and cycling routes without using the car, with the Dorset AONB and the Cranborne Chase AONB within easy reach providing enchanting landscapes and an abundance of nature to uncover.

Dorset is famous for its beautiful Jurassic Coast which is within easy reach for a day trip to the seaside, as well as the cottages benefiting from being very close to the National Trust gem of Kingston Lacy House and Gardens which has many activities for children and adults alike with play areas and a great walking/cycling trail. Both Bath and Salisbury are within range for a day out shopping and Blandford Forum has some lovely little independent shops and cafés.

Newfield Farm Cottages is a wondrous base from which to explore the delights of Dorset on your family getaway

About the location

BLANDFORD FORUM

Thornicombe 2.7 miles; Child Okeford 6.5 miles; Moors Valley Country Park & Forest 17.9 miles.

Blandford Forum is a market town in Dorset, England, situated by the River Stour. Notable for its Georgian architecture, most of the town was rebuilt in the 18th century after it was destroyed by a fire in 1731. King George II made a donation to rebuild the town centre with designs from local architects John and William Bastard. The Blandford Georgian Fayre is an annual event held in the first week of May and celebrates its Georgian heritage, with presentations, historical re-enactments and music and dancing. One of the town’s biggest events takes place on the late Bank Holiday weekend, the Great Dorset Steam Fair. A largely colourful festival with over 2,000 exhibits and an old time steam funfair. Offering a wide selection of independent store, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, cafés and a Georgian tearoom. So much to visit within this quaint town and makes for a wonderful tourist attraction, whatever the season.
