Why a Sturminster Newton Holiday?
Located in the heart of Blackmore Vale, between Sherborne and Blandford Forum. Sturminster Newton is a rural gem waiting to be explored. The town's most popular attraction is the Sturminster Newton Mill, a 16th century mill and one of a series of ancient flour mills located along the River Stour. Spend an afternoon exploring The Town Museum, housed in a quintessential thatched cottage or experience the true taste of Dorset at the local Farmers Market, taking place on the 4th Saturday of every month.
Being situated in the stunning Dorset countryside, accommodation in Sturminster Newton provides ample opportunity to step out and explore the eight circular walks that surround this pretty market town. The Stour Valley Way and The White Hart Link are both closeby and demonstrate the natural beauty of the River Stour and beyond, for those wanting to take on a longer hike.
If you’re visiting in September, then be sure to check out the Sturminster Newton Cheese Festival. With over 60 traditional food stalls, cheese making (and tasting!), music and entertainment, this popular event is perfect for the whole family!
