Contemporary detached annex sleeping four guests, enjoying a quiet secluded location just one mile from Sturminster Newton town centre, in the heart of Thomas Hardy Country.

This property is located just one mile from the town of Sturminster Newton and yet enjoys a quiet location surrounded by fields. This pretty market town sits on the River Stour and offers a good range of shops and eateries as well as some interesting architecture, including the sixteenth century watermill and a picturesque six-arch bridge, the inspiration behind a poem written by the town’s famous former-resident Thomas Hardy. The area around the town has much to offer visitors, including the towns of Shaftesbury and Dorchester, the magnificent Cerne Abbas Giant, Lulworth Cove beach, and the iconic limestone arch of Durdle Door.

When guests arrive at this contemporary detached annex, they will first come to the ground-floor living space: a spacious lounge/kitchen/diner. The lounge area has windows on two sides which flood the whole room with light, as well as comfortable seating, a TV/DVD, hi-fi, and dining table. An archway leads through to the kitchen area, which offers an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. On the first floor of the property, there are two bedrooms. The first of these is a spacious master suite with a double bed and en-suite bathroom benefitting from a bath, separate shower, and WC. The second bedroom is a restful twin room with smaller sized 2’6” beds (which can be made up as a king size bed on request). The shower room on the first floor offers a shower and WC, whilst there is also a WC on the ground floor.

Outside there is a patio seating area with table and chairs in front of the property, as well as plenty of space in the enclosed paddock just across the driveway. There is driveway parking for two cars.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 2 bedrooms: 1 double and 1 twin (which can be made up as a king-size, requested at the time of booking)
  • En-suite bathroom with bath, shower, and WC to the double room

The cottage is very spacious and airy. Well equipped and in a lovely location. We had a dog with us and the surroundings were perfect for him, with secure fencing.

Outside area fantastic. The cottage is more than a short distance away from the village, not really walking distance.The WiFi connection was very intermittent . Unfortunately we found the living room/ dining area too small and the furniture very uncomfortable. Apart from these issues we had an enjoyable and relaxing holiday.
