    “The cottage is in a good location as a base for exploring Dorset.”

    However, considering the landlords have been given an extra two hours for cleaning it wasn't particularly well cleaned on arrival. The bedroom is very small and cramped and we found the bathroom being on the ground floor next to the kitchen inconvenient when the bedroom is upstairs.

The property

Fleur Cottage is a homely abode sitting within the rural village of Maiden Newton in Dorset.

Offering families of four or groups of friends an escape to the countryside, there's plenty here to explore no matter the time of year.

Step into the welcoming living/dining room, where a woodburning stove sitting within the rustic inglenook invites you to settle down and enjoy your evening in the warmth.

The dining area boasts enough space to seat all of your party, where you can sit together to plan your itinerary over a tasty meal as the amply-equipped kitchen has every essential needed for a week-long stay.

Spend your evenings stargazing in your own private courtyard, the perfect end to each day before taking the stairs to the first floor to discover the two well-presented bedrooms.

The cottage is home to both a master double bedroom and a twin room with two 2'6" beds, a lovely layout for a family of four, along with feature stone walls in each bedroom to carry on the character of this quaint cottage.

Begin your day with a refreshing shower in the shower room which is located on the ground floor, before heading out to explore Maiden Newton, resting at the heart of West Dorset's 'Hardy Country'.

Here you can expect to find plenty of scenic wonders all around you to discover.

Enjoy a hearty breakfast at home, the local shop offering everything you need when you're not sampling the delicious food at the local pub, The Chalk & Cheese, or celebrating a special occasion at the fine dining restaurant of Le Petit Canard.

Hop on the train or take a scenic drive to the bustling town of Dorchester, with plenty of gardens to roam for a leisurely day out.

There are plenty of restaurants and cafes, cinemas and enticing museums such as the Dorset County Museum, The Dinosaur Museum and the Terracotta Warrior Museum, just to name a few, there's something here for everyone.

Enjoy a family-fun day at Weymouth, being sure to indulge in some fish and chips for that true seaside experience, as you bask on the beach or travel further afield to the equally attractive coastal resort town of Bournemouth, home to an Oceanarium, pretty promenade, the Russell Cotes Art Gallery & Museum and so much more.

Fleur Cottage is perfectly positioned for exploring the best of Dorset and beyond.
