Dorset is no doubt quintessential England at it's best! Thatched roofed cottages, walled gardens, winding roads, Thomas Hardy, Stonehenge and the Jurassic Coast.
Our bright airy guest room is en-suite with a shower. It has a comfy king size bed with a coffee/tea tray and a beautiful view of the Blackmore Vale.
We also have a second room that we make available if extra space is needed for children or a third person upon request for an additional fee.
Breakfast is from 8:00am - 9:00am. We offer cereals and toast, a full-English or American blueberry pancakes with maple syrup.
Also, feel free to enjoy our walled garden.
We are a dog friendly place as we have our own black lab Josie.
Right outside our door you are greeted with miles and miles of footpaths for strolling & walking, all the while taking in the most spectacular views of the Blackmore Vale. A few hundred yards up the street is a fabulous pub The Crown Inn, more famously known as The Pure Drop Inn written about in Thomas Hardy’s most successful novel ‘Tess of the D’Urbervilles’.
We have a trainline 6 miles from our home in Gillingham that will take you just about anywhere and directly to Waterloo, London in just under 2 hours.
Relax and enjoy yourselves! And don't hesitate to ask if you need anything.
We only needed a place for one night whilst we attended a party in the village but Karen and Colin could not have been more welcoming. The room was charming and the view from the window, over blossom laden fruit trees to fields beyond, was stunning. Our cooked breakfast was simply delicious and it was lovely to chat with them both whilst we ate. They even produced a litter of Labrador puppies for us to coo over - I think we could have stayed all morning just gazing at them! Would definitely recommend.
Very nice weekend in the Dorset. The room was lovely and Karen and Colin were perfect hosts and gave us advice on what to visit in the area.
A lovely room (with a fantastic view) in a gorgeous house. Karen was so friendly and helpful - made us feel very welcome. Unfortunately it was only a flying visit but would highly recommend New Street Place as a base to explore the beautiful Dorset countryside.
Thanks to Karen for a lovely stay in their welcoming house. They were very thoughtful in their advice and help in making our weekend stay relaxing and pleasant for us and Lola the dog.
Karen and Colin were very welcoming. Their house is beautiful and the room was great! I'd definitely recommend staying there (and be sure to walk down to the lovely Crown Inn if you do...)
Hi, I am an American living with my British husband Colin in Dorset, England. He's from Ireland (love the accent!). This is quintessential England with thatched roof cottages, winding narrow roads through lovely villages with amazing English gardens. We love the sea and spend a lot of our free time hiking along the coast with our black lab Josie. We are very easy-going people (so we've been told). We love cooking, particularly Indian food, can't live without good coffee and always appreciate a good bottle of red wine.
