  • Mr Chamberlain

    “Lovely cottage and lovely hosts.”

    Very comfortable. Quiet location and peaceful, but near enough to nearby towns and villages as we wanted.

The property

Sturminster Newton 3 miles.

A delightful barn conversion amidst the owners' 130-acres of wooded farmland, in the rural hamlet of Fifehead Neville, 3 miles from Sturminster Newton.

Beautifully converted to an exceptionally high standard, this charming property boasts exposed beams throughout and provides wonderful views across the Blackmore Vale.

With two character bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen and a traditionally-styled sitting room providing access to the pretty garden via French windows, this lovely accommodation offers a great place to relax and unwind.

There are numerous footpaths and bridleways providing excellent walking opportunities and nearby Stourhead house and gardens is well worth a visit.

The ancient town of Sherborne is just 11 miles away, whilst the market town of Dorchester, with its Roman roads and array of shops, pubs and restaurants, is within a 20 minute drive.

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!
