Choose from a variety of accommodation to suit your stay

Maiden Newton is found right in the heart of the West Dorset countryside surrounded by gentle green slopes and wooded copses. The adjoining hamlet of Frome Vauchurch is also part of the parish and adds some extra charm to the area. The village is located in Dorset’s area of outstanding natural beauty, offering tranquillity in abundance and a relaxing holiday for all. Also, due to its central location Maiden Newton is great for romantic rural holidays, foodie breaks or for a family holiday in Dorset that offers days out by the seaside and great visitor attractions.

This quintessential village holds more than you might imagine at first glance. You may notice the remains of the old market cross when you enter the village, at 5 feet tall it is quite a sight.

As well as a few choice places to eat and drink there are some attractions that make Maiden Newton quite popular with visitors. Steam train enthusiasts are able to watch the old steam trains passing through Maiden Newton and might perhaps decide to jump aboard for a trip to the seaside in the south. The Weymouth Seaside Express and the Dorset Coast Express are two such engines that evoke memories of a time gone by and add a special touch to any Maiden Newton holiday.

Although not on the coast itself, Maiden Newton is located within easy reach of the popular seaside towns of Bridport, West Bay, Weymouth, Swanage, Poole and even Bournemouth. These locations are fantastic for family holidays in Dorset, and when the sun has set, Maiden Newton is a beautifully peaceful location to head back to rather than staying in the town.

If you are looking to get outdoors and active there is a fantastic opportunity waiting for you in the form of the National Cycle Routes. Number 26 is a cycle trail which starts in Maiden Newton and ends in Dorchester just 10 miles away. Taking a bike is an environmentally friendly gesture and allows you to really see, smell and feel your surroundings while on your Dorset holiday. Another great place to explore during a holiday in Maiden Newton is the Maiden Newton to Bridport Trailway. The Trailway is a ten mile, traffic free path that is ideal for walkers, cyclists, and wheelchair users following the disused route of the former Bridport branch railway. Because of its position, the path also acts as a traffic free pathway to the Jurassic coast.
