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.

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Three adults and three dogs stayed for a long weekend - and we had a great time, with plenty of room for all. The cottage has been finished to a high standard and is very well equipped with all modern appliances. The log burner was very good and wood was in plentiful supply A nice touch was the fact that provision had been made for the dogs in the form of treats and towels, with a hose outside for muddy animals and boots. We will definitely be booking again.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property had everything we needed, it was comfortable, in a convenient position to explore the area and the owners very accommodating. The little things like tea, coffee and milk on arrival for us and a pot of dog biscuits and two chews for the other member of the family was appreciated. All furniture and fittings were clean, comfortable and up to date. After walking for miles coming back and relaxing there was a treat. Would recommend to others with a dog, there is even a train station in the village with links to Weymouth, took the strain out of parking there for the day.

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 5 days in this beautiful cottage with our 2 pet dogs. The downstairs is modern, comfy and has everything you would need for a relaxing quite break.

The upstairs bedroom is spacious and has a lovely Queen Size bed, which is also very comfy. I really cannot fault this cottage in any way.

It is in easy reach of the coast and has local walks where we could take our dogs. The walk to Cattistock along the river with a pub at the destination is well worth a visit

We would definitely use this cottage again. Many thanks

David & Deborah

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.
