If you are looking for a comfortable base for your Dorset adventures, or a chance to unwind and relax, this special property is sure to tick all the boxes. The historic Mill boasts the widest working water wheel in the UK, and whilst it is not in use at present, the sense of history is evident. The Mill Retreat is located on the ground floor of the Mill with a generous entrance hall, and has a kitchenette with a fridge, sink, microwave, toaster, and kettle, and dining area. There is a large combined sitting and bedroom with a king-size bedstead, a french armoire and chest of drawers, a sofa, chairs, coffee table, and a television. The wood burning stove is perfect for creating a cosy atmosphere after your country walk, beach visit or perhaps your bike ride. A well-appointed bathroom with a feature free-standing bath and separate shower enclosure completes the accommodation.
Outside the Mill there is an opportunity to sit by the river to enjoy your morning coffee, or evening glass of wine, and if you are lucky you may receive a visit from one of the kingfishers that perch on the bridge wall.
Situated on the outskirts of the popular village of Maiden Newton, a village surrounded by pretty countryside, there are numerous opportunities for rural walks all around. Within a short five mile drive away there is Eggardon Hill, an Iron Age hill fort and downland with views across the Marshwood Vale to the Jurassic Coast. You are well situated for trips to the beaches of Charmouth, Lyme Regis, Ringstead and Weymouth, or iconic Lulworth Cover and Durdle Door. The county town of Dorchester with its museums, shops, restaurants and cafes, and Roman Townhouse is just a 15 minute drive away, and Beaminster, Bridport and Westbay are all within easy reach.
