Things To Do in Sturminster Newton, Nr Fiddleford
Sturminster Newton sits on the River Stour in Dorset. The surrounding Blackmore Vale is picturesque and crossed with walking routes that take ramblers through little villages and to country pubs. With the coast 45 minutes away, and Sherborne a 12-mile drive, there’s plenty to see in this beautiful part of England.
An old mill sits on the River Stour at Sturminster Newton. It serves as a local museum these days, and it’s close to a couple of friendly pubs and a small selection of shops.
For history buffs, a visit to Sherborne Castle is a must. There’s been a fortification on the site since the 13th century, and the mansion house that is still standing was once home to Sir Walter Raleigh. Capability Brown landscaped the gardens and added the lake so the outside of this place is as fascinating as the inside.
Sherborne town is great to look around too with choice of shops and tea rooms, there is also a steam and waterwheel museum, an abbey and streets lined with honey-coloured houses. The nearby town of Shaftesbury sits on an elevated spot that offers long views over the Dorset countryside. Gold Hill is a visitor attraction, this steep incline has pretty thatched cottages on either side and has cobblestones down the middle.
The ruins of an abbey can be visited, and the herb gardens and museum here are interesting to tour. To spend a day relaxing on the beach, drive to Poole, Bournemouth or Weymouth. The sands stretch for miles and there is a choice of places to eat from fish and chips to fine-dining restaurants. At the iconic Durdle Door, the beach is dog friendly and welcomes pooches all year round.
Jasmine Cottage has a prized location in the heart of the Dorset countryside. Within walking distance is a pub and a shop, so you don’t have to go far for holiday essentials.
Hop in the car and drive through the hills and stop at historical towns such as Sherborne, Blandford Forum and Shaftesbury. Castles, abbeys and museums are sprinkled across north Dorset welcoming in visitors from far and wide. And the pretty coast is less than an hour away for a day at the seaside with the dog.
With so much to see within easy reach, this place is perfect for a relaxing holiday for 3 people. You can choose to pack your days with site seeing and walking, or opt to slow the pace down and spend time relaxing and enjoying a quiet time together.
