Description

Easily accommodating 16 guests, ideally situated just a mile from sandy beaches, and great for discovering Dorset.

This magnificent listed building, with 8 bedrooms and 9 bath/shower rooms, offers wonderful character holiday accommodation in a residential area, just a mile away from the lovely sandy beaches of Swanage Bay and a large selection of restaurants and shops. Newton Manor House dates back to the early 1600s with walls and roof built from local Purbeck stone. The house retains a lot of its original charm with ornate oak panelling and wood carvings. The principal rooms overlook the serene landscaped gardens, while the first and second floor rooms offer far-reaching views across the small seaside town of Swanage, to the sea and coast beyond. The town of Swanage nestles peacefully amidst the beautiful Isle of Purbeck countryside, and is set between the Heads of Durlston and Studland, sloping gently down to the water’s edge. This small pleasant resort has an array of restaurants, interesting shops and a small theatre, not to mention spectacular floral displays in the parks and gardens. In season, pleasure cruisers leave the pier daily, bound for Poole, Bournemouth and the Isle of Wight. The Lifeboat Centre at Pervil Point is open to the public and fascinating to visit, whilst Durlston Country Park provides magnificent cliff walks and views of Anvil Point Lighthouse. A trip aboard Swanage’s restored steam railway also makes for a fun day out, winding its way through pretty scenery to the ruins of Corfe Castle. Magnificent coastal walks extend north from the town to the National Trust sandy beaches at Studland while the South West Coastal Path leads to Kimmeridge, Tyneham and West Lulworth in the west, much of which is National Trust land and rich in local flora and fauna. The larger seaside resorts of Poole and Bournemouth are just a ferry ride away, boasting a huge range of shops, theatres, museums, cinemas, and restaurants. The entire coast is excellent for trying out all manner of watersports - windsurfing, water-skiing, yachting and surfing to name just a few. Fishing and tennis are available a mile away in Swanage, and a local golf course can be found nearby. Shop ¼ mile.

    A great place to stay with lots of history. We would certainly love to return sometime.

    Excellent value at last years pricing. The new pricing means it is not as good and therefore we chose to go elsewhere.

    We are a group of 7 couples who meet annually for a Naval reunion. Everything we wanted was available to us in the property with plenty of crockery, glasses and with 2 dishwashers it was a great help. There were games in a cupboard which we found part way through the stay and the pool table was well used as you would imagine. The bedrooms were comfortable and spacious and the beds welcoming. Grounds are very good and the neighbours nice. The only downside is there seems to be a known issue with the water going off in the attic bathroom which the maintenance guy knew about but the plumber needs to sort. Also, there is only one supermarket in town which gets full and parking awkward so maybe go early to get supplies. Would definitely stay there again.

    Newton Manor House was perfect for what we needed. Every room has its own bathroom, beds are comfortable, living room was large yet cosy. Kitchens were well equipped and an abundance of anything you would need. Lots of iPod docks to play music throughout the house. It was a beautiful holiday and we would all recommend this house for other large groups!

    This is the second year I have stayed here. Eight adults and seven grandchildren. It suited us all the only concern we had was the youngest aged two running with the older children in the garden as there was various concrete areas. It was very well equipped, everyone had their own bedroom and ensuit. Having two dishwashers made meal time so easy to clear away. Will go back again.

    Large comfortable venue for a group holiday. Even with full occupancy plenty of rooms to get away from the others for a while if you feel the need.

    Absolutely perfect for our whole party of 15. We were thrilled with the welcome pack. The kitchen and every bedroom was so well equipped and very thoughtfully prepared

    We were a party of 10 celebrating an 80th birthday for 3 days, having known each other for some 50 years. The house was the best place we have been to for our reunions. We all had our own en suite bathrooms (essential at our ages) and the house is beautifully kept and in keeping with the period. The dining room was perfect and we had a couple of lovely evenings there - eating drinking and playing some cards & board games in the evening while some just sat and chatted. There are lots of different rooms and nooks where you can get away from each other if you want and the kitchen is equipped with everything you need for a party of 10. I would thoroughly recommend the house to anyone. The only downside is that we struggled to find somewhere to eat out in the evening in Swanage - the only reasonable place being the Trattoria which was a good Italian restaurant and 'did what it said on the tin'! The walks and places of interest locally are brilliant and we all had a great time and wished we could have stayed longer.
