We have two 4-star self-catering holiday cottages, available to book throughout the year.

Jasmine Cottage and Rose Cottage are situated in the grounds of Hillyground Cottage, a Grade II-listed thatched cottage dating from the 15th century, in the pretty hamlet of Newton just outside the market town of Sturminster Newton.  

The cottages are surrounded by an acre of field and gardens, overlooking the River Stour and Newton Mill.

Our nearest pub is The Bull, less than 5 minutes’ walk down the hill.

Our location is ideal for walking, fishing, the Jurassic coast, pretty villages and market towns, historic houses and gardens, ancient hill forts and ruins, nature reserves, plus lots of family activities. 

Pets are welcome too!
