    “We had a wonderful holiday at Belview Cottage - the photos looked really good when we booked, but they don't really do it justice.”

    The cottage is in a fabulous rural location with a lovely garden and is very peaceful with just the sounds of birds to wake up to. The nearby Blackmore Vale area is excellent for walking and there are dedicated cycle trails nearby. Great pubs with good food too. The cottage itself is spacious, well equipped with quality applicances, warm, comfortable and above all immaculately clean and well decorated. It has everything you might want including electric car charger and super fast broadband ...

About the location

STURMINSTER NEWTON

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!
