Stables Holiday Cottage is a lovely, cosy & dog friendly holiday cottage set in Sturminster Newton, in the very heart of the famous Thomas Hardy's 'Wessex' - the picturesque Dorset countryside close to Devon, Somerset & Wiltshire. The central location makes it ideal for enjoying a family touring holiday for days out to places like Stonehenge, Glastonbury Tor, Clarkes Village shopping centre, Monkey World, Durdle Dor on the Jurassic Coast & many, many other exciting places. It is also an excellent walking and cycling area.

This highly recommended country cottage is located on a little farm set midway between two lovely rural villages of Hazelbury Bryan & Kings Stag close to the old market town of Sturminster Newton near Blandford Forum.

Within this good quality and comfortable cottage there is a seating area with leather settees, a well equipped kitchen/family room with dining area and French doors which lead out to the patio and garden. There is one double bedroom and a twin bedroom, each of which has an en-suite shower room. There is also another bathroom complete with a relaxing Hydrotherapy bath with mood lighting.

The Butterfly Conservation, Alners Gorse is just a short walk away (only around quarter of a mile) and there are a number of other good walks to enjoy close by.

The famous Dorset Gap, Gold Hill & Glastonbury Tor with their magnificent views are within easy driving distance. Many National Trust historic houses & ancient sites are within easy reach for days out including Stourhead with its famous example of early 18th-century English landscaping & of course the world famous Stonehenge.

Sturminster Newton

Sturminster Newton is situated on the river Stour and is accessed via a 16th century six arch stone bridge.

There is an old water mill on the South bank of the river that used to mill flour.
