  • "Fantastic location, a home from home."

    Ideal for walking and our four legged friends.

    Reviewed by Nicola5.0Mar 2024

  • "Hebe is by far the most fabulous holiday cottage we have stayed in (with our two dogs) ."

    It is equipped with everything you could need, and the thoughtful welcoming 'treats' were icing on the cake - and there was chocolate and prosecco among other delights! Hebe is brilliant for both disabled and able-bodied holiday makers : the helping bits and pieces for less mobile folk were not obtrusive at all. As a below knee amputee myself I needed the cripple-friendly extras, useful and thoughtful. The dogs loved the totally secure gardens. And our host, Vendela, was friendly and helpful/caring. We will stay at Hebe or Willow (next door) again for sure. Superb.

  • "What's not to love?"

    Fantastic property in beautiful surroundings. Everything you could wish for, and then some. Super dog friendly, which was my top priority. Owner Vendela couldn't have been more helpful, especially keeping us updated on the local roads flood situation. Only one thing could have improved it comfort wise, maybe an extra sofa. To sum up, the BEST holiday home I've ever stayed in!!!

  • "Hebe is one of the best dog friendly holiday cottages we have ever stayed."

    The hosts, Vendela and Robin were very kind and accommodating and we certainly enjoyed the welcome goodies, thank you! The cottage was beautifully presented and we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and our lovely pup certainly enjoyed the large enclosed garden - and it was properly enclosed with no escape routes. So a big thank you from us.

  • "Our stay at Hebe was perfect."

    Superb, clean and tidy accommodation. Sun in the morning in the back garden and in the evening in the front garden. Wet rooms well stocked with fluffy, cotton Laura Ashley towels, soap and cleaning produce. Kitchen had everything we needed. A dog walk just along the Frome Way suited our younger dogs really well and was just at the end of the drive. Centrally placed to drive to Dorset's jurassic coast and tour!

  • "This holiday property was one of the best we have stayed in to date."

    As a wheelchair user my husband found it very easy to get around with the added extra of a choice of wet room. The owner was also able to provide us with a shower chair. The property had everything you could wish for and the owners were very friendly, popping in at the end of our stay to check we had had a good stay. Set in a peaceful countryside location with plenty of walks nearby it gave us the restful break we needed. So good we put a deposit down on our 3rd day for next year!!

    It was spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable and completely dog friendly. The owner is a lovely lady who checked we were ok but wasn't intrusive at all. Thanks for the goodies. Booked again for May '24, can't wait!!!

    The gardens were well kept and the surroundings lovely and quiet. There were some lovely welcome gifts for us and the owner was very accommodating to our requests.

    Everything was exceptionally clean and tidy, we had three dogs in our party, and even they had been catered for, throws throughout the barn. It was like home from home, exceptionally comfortable. The owners were very welcoming and told us about local places to walk and go. All in all we had a fantastic time. Thankyou for making our week so enjoyable.

  • "We had a lovely stay at hebe."

    There was everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The accommodation was of a very high standard. Blankets and water bowls were provided for dogs. Near to Dorchester and Weymouth. We had a lot of rain overnight and the entrance road was flooded by the river frome, just something to note if going in winter. We would recommend and will visit again.

  • "Absolutely stunning!"

    We stay in 2-3 holiday cottages a year, this has to be one of the nicest we have stayed in. We had a little issue with the heating and hot water but this was sorted shortly after reporting it, can’t really ask for more. The entire place was modern, comfortable and well equipped. The front and back garden are both a good size, and actually secure for the dogs, something that many places say they are, but rarely actually true. Very impressed with this place and we will be back to visit again

  • "We had a fantastic stay at Hebe cottage."

    The owners have thought of everything down to the finest detail. The cottage itself was comfortable and well appointed. It is very disabled friendly with wide doors and easily accessible en suite wet rooms in both bedrooms. The outside space was large with both front and rear secure gardens, which allowed our dog to run around and roam the grounds freely without worry. The added bonus of two horses in the field at the bottom of the rear garden made it even better. We would highly recommend this property to anyone and would definitely book it again for ourselves.

The property

Maiden Newton 1.6 miles.

Nestled in the peaceful hamlet of Notton, near Maiden Newton in Dorset, is this wonderful, two-bedroom, semi-detached barn conversion, Hebe.

Boasting a fantastic location within the stunning Dorset AONB countryside with easy access to the breath-taking Jurassic Coast, as well as a disabled-friendly interior with easy access, spacious wet rooms with support rails, as well as additional disabled facilities available on request, Hebe is a superb dwelling for a family of four or couples who are looking to embark on a scenic, rural getaway.

Park-up on the ample driveway with space for several cars, before being greeted by a charming front garden with seating offering breath-taking views overlooking the surrounding countryside.

Be welcomed into the contemporary open-plan living space, with toasty eco-friendly underfloor heating and tiled flooring, where you can look forward to cooking up a storm in well-equipped kitchen, featuring a handy dishwasher and washing machine, before savouring your meal over a bottle of wine at the dining table for four.

If the weather is nice, why not dine alfresco out on the private patio, where you can soak up views of the rural countryside and your canine companion can stretch their legs?

Afterwards, retire to the plush seating in the sitting room, with French doors allowing the natural light to flow in, and select a family favourite from the TV, as the electric fire crackles nearby.

When sleep calls, retire to one of two well-presented bedrooms, a super-king-size with zip/link and a king-size, both served by generous en-suite wet rooms one of which has adjustable support rails.

Awake from a leisurely slumber and take advantage of your unique setting with ponies & pet sheep you are welcome to meet, what could be better?

It's cycle path and a foot path straight from the barns and just a short walk to the village of Maiden Newton, where you can find a petrol station, a newsagent, a pub (the Chalk & Cheese) and a coffee shop.
