The Mill Site is quiet and an ideal place to relax whilst on holiday. If you are looking for a smaller place to stay, there is also the stunning Mill Cottage next door which is available for 8 people, or you can rent both together for up to 20 people.

We could not be in more perfect surroundings on the banks of the River Frome, 8 miles from Dorchester and 15 miles from the Jurassic coastline.

Fishing is also available on the river outside your front door if you hold an appropriate fishing license.

Our property is situated in the glorious Dorset village of Maiden Newton. Maiden Newton Mill House, is set in idyllic grounds of about 3 acres, over looked by majestic London Plane trees. The village is accessed by train, bus or car, and is a nice size, with a pub, restaurants, village shops, petrol station, and many social events.

We are just 8 miles from the bustling market town of Dorchester, and the Royal Poundbury Estate. A little further down the road will take you to Weymouth and the stunning Jurassic coast, where there are beautiful fossils to be hunted for in this World Heritage site. The coast road from Weymouth to Lyme Regis is simply breathtaking, and a delight for artists or photographers.

Please note that we are now offering great discounts on Mill Cottage.

"Really beautiful site, lovely restaured, very kind and helpful owners. Great vacation for three families."

Although the flood in July just had gone the mill looked like it was just restaured, the owners did a great job prepairing it for us to have a fine two week holdiday.
Three families from Germany, six adults, five kids and a dog we really appreciated the lot of space we had. Even if it had rained the whole time through (the weather was fantastic) we sureley would have had enough space to feel comfortable, just like home.
Lots of things to see in the area, beaches btw. 20 and 30 min. away (depends on what you prefer) and even a railway station at Maiden Newton, as well as various shops and even a fish & chip takeaway just on the other side of the road.
