  • Mr Bendell

    “'Belview' is one of the cleanest, best equipped and comfortable holiday cottages we have stayed in.”

    The location is very rural, quiet and with lovely views across the Dorset countryside. The cows were curious but friendly.

    The location is very rural, quiet and with lovely views across the Dorset countryside. The cows were curious but friendly. Gillian and Brian were discrete hosts but made us feel very at home with a welcome-pack of local produce. A nice touch. There are a good number of nice places to eat in the area but we would recommend booking ahead to avoid disappointment. We would certainly recommend a stay there.

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!

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Winter
  • Off-season
  • Christmas
