The coast – Lulworth Cove and beautiful beaches of Studland are also within an hour’s drive.
Briefly the home to Thomas Hardy (1876) and the setting for his Return of the Native, Sturminster Newton offers some interesting shops and cafe’s.
Sturminster Newton hosts the increasingly popular Cheese Festival in September and is home to Olives et Al.  Monthly Boogie Woogie evenings which culminate in the Boogie Woogie Festival in July are also popular local events.
The Bull Inn is a 4 min walk from Newton House and Margie and Charlie are always happy to recommend the other good food pubs in the area.
