The property

A charming, detached period cottage set in a pretty conservation area, in the small Dorset market town of Sturminster Newton, close to the banks of the River Stour.

The immaculate interior of this lovely Sturminster Newton cottage provides a perfect holiday base for couples, or perhaps a small family wishing to enjoy the many delights of this rural area of Dorset.

Tastefully furnished and renovated to a high standard, this lovely Sturminster Newton holiday cottage benefits from a warming woodburner in the cosy sitting room, and a superb, well-fitted kitchen, whilst upstairs, a shower room and two bright, comfortable bedrooms await.

The kitchen doors of the cottage in Sturminster Newton open out to a small, private courtyard garden, where you can enjoy alfresco refreshments as you plan exciting days out.

The attractive town centre is just a short stroll from your Sturminster Newton holiday cottage, where you will find an interesting array of shops selling local produce, and a selection of inns offering good food and ale.

Why not enjoy walks along the riverside, where you could be treated to the sight of visiting kingfisher or heron?

Further afield, there are numerous places to explore, including the Georgian town of Blandford Forum, ancient Shaftesbury, the historic abbey and castle of Sherborne, as well as the stunning Dorset Jurassic Coast.

About the location


Blandford Forum 11 miles.

The small, attractive market town of Sturminster Newton is set on the banks of the River Stour, reached via a graceful, six-arch, 15th century bridge, carrying a warning of deportation to those who may damage it! The whole area acted as inspiration for the works of Thomas Hardy, who wrote Return of The Native whilst living in the town. The region is dotted with thatched cottages, rural walks, stunning country views, and fascinating towns, such as Sherborne, with its abbey and castle, whilst the beautiful Dorset Heritage Coast is also within easy reach, making this an ideal base all year round!
