About the Owner

Hi I'm Mark, my wife Karen and I have lived in Maiden Newton since 2004 running a small architectural practice from home. We both love motorbiking, which is wonderful around Dorset's country lanes and coastal roads. We also enjoy running our two holiday cottages.

Location

From the Owner

Maiden Newton is in the middle of West Dorset's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), surrounded by some of England’s most picturesque countryside. Despite such a beautiful location Maiden Newton is a genuine working rural village and is not overrun with tourist in the summer months like many of our more better know neighbours. We enjoy taking long walks from our doorstep, or riding out on our motorbike for Sunday lunch at one of the many fantastic village pubs in rural Dorset.
