    “What a wonderful week we had, definitely enhanced by this accommodation and it's gorgeous garden.”

    It's so spacious and well equipped (they thought of everything!) and more like a mansion than a house. The conservatory is huge and we spent a lot of our waking time in there as a family, playing board games from the cupboard, eating our meals, etc.

    It's so spacious and well equipped (they thought of everything!) and more like a mansion than a house. The conservatory is huge and we spent a lot of our waking time in there as a family, playing board games from the cupboard, eating our meals, etc. The only suggestions would be to replace the sofa's and easy chairs. They are not the most comfortable. The formal dining room was a bit funereal but didn't matter to us as we never used it.

    - Glynis, May 2022

    Thank you Glynis for your lovely feedback, and we are so glad you had a good week at Little Orchard. We do plan to have the large sofa reupholstered this winter, and will of course review all of the other arm chairs and sofas. The formal dining room may indeed be a little too formal and I will also look at lightening it up a bit this winter! We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

The property

Tucked away in the idyllic Dorset village of Maiden Newton, Little Orchard is ideally placed for combining coastal and countryside holidays with families or friends.

A pretty and peaceful village, the bustling town of Dorchester lies just 7 miles and the magnificent Jurassic coast can be reached within 30 minutes.

Little Orchard is set back from a quiet, no through road, a gated gravel driveway leading up to the house with plenty of parking outside.

Step into the hallway that leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room equipped with a range cooker and everything you need to comfortably, cater for your staycation in Dorset.

There is a useful utility room and a separate ground floor cloakroom.For formal occasions, a separate dining room is the place to gather and perfect for Christmas and celebratory meals and after a day exploring, kick back and relax on squashy sofas and enjoy a film or favourite TV show in the comfort of the living room.

Most of your time however, will be spent in the spacious conservatory equipped with a farmhouse dining table, chairs and settee with a wood burning stove to stave off Autumn and winter evening chills.

The room is bright and airy with views out across the magnificent garden to the side and rear.

Tiled floors provide a Mediterranean vibe and invite you to unwind in this beautifully light and airy atmosphere.

Head upstairs and off the landing where you will find four lovely bedrooms providing your party with plenty of sleeping versatility.

Each one dressed in crisp white linen, there is a super-king, two king size rooms, one with en-suite WC and a twin room.

A family bathroom with double-ended slipper style bathtub & separate shower allows for a relaxing soak or refreshing drench to start your day. The wraparound garden at Little Orchard is a colourful array of mature planted beds and a lovely large lawn with a pebbled seating area equipped with garden table and chairs providing a place for summer barbecues and alfresco dining.

Maiden Newton is a picturesque village with a store and a great pub.

The beautiful rolling landscape affords wonderful walking both coastal and inland.

Enjoy the scenery from the Hardy’s monument and wander around the pretty village of Abbotsbury before heading to the subtropical gardens or Abbotsbury Swannery.

Bridport and the seaside resort of West Bay where the TV series Broadchurch was filmed are within a 30 minute drive and an undulating breath taking scenic walk along the coastal path will bring you to the Hive Beach Café, perfect for afternoon tea and cake!

There is much to do and plenty to see in this beautiful part of the world, however if all you want to do is to put your feet up and unwind, Little Orchard makes for a perfect choice for restful holiday at any time of year.

About the location


West Bay 14 miles; Weymouth 17 miles; Lyme Regis 23 miles

Maiden Newton is a lovely village, well placed for the Jurassic Coast and the numerous Dorset beaches, the coast at Abbotsbury being a beautiful fifteen minute drive across country from the village. Days out and very worthy of a visit whilst in the area are Durdle Dor, Lulworth Cove, West Bay, Lyme Regis and Seatown, to name but a few. Other attractions nearby include the Swannery and the Subtropical Gardens at Abbotsbury, Hardy's Monument with its stunning views of Chesil Bank and Portland. Portland has some wonderful coastal and inland walks, or you just can go for breakfast/lunch outside at the Lighthouse cafe and drink in the impressive scenery.
