English Country Cottages

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


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 property. 15 mins walk out of Swanage town centre so good location. All rooms clean and well appointed - some refurbed more recently than others. All beds reportedly very comfy. A bit misleading that only 7 of 8 are en-suite with a further bathroom down the hall for the 8th bedroom and bathrooms of varying sizes. Best thing about the house was how well equipped it was - 3 fridges, 2 dishwashers, loads of crockery, cups and glasses - we cooked for 17 people one eve and didn't struggle to find a thing to do this. The dining room is great for a big group -we would stay here again

    Accomodated 15 people in comfort, facilities very good. Location close to all local places of interest and public transport, would recommend.

    An extremely well equipped, roomy and comfortable house with an interesting history and period features. Maybe a little challenging for families with babies at the crawling stage but a great place for large parties of older folk. Fairly easy walk to sea. Fantastic cliff walks in the area. Kimmeridge bay great for fossil hunting. Interesting second hand/junk shop 100 yds away. Buses for Poole and Corfe Castle pass the door and the station is a 15 minute walk away

    Really appropriate house for a multi-generation holiday. The bedrooms, all with on-suite, are excellent and the main reception room spacious. There are, at present two kitchens which takes time to get used to!

    What can I say, we had the most amazing weekend at Newton Manor, we celebrated a 30th and 60th joint birthday and everyone was blown away with the house and surroundings, as the house was very well equipped and the house still had its character and charm. With the beaches and town being in walking distance and Corfe just a short drive, it had everything we needed. Also the weather was fantastic, so all in all an 11 out of 10 from all of us, would love to stay again.

    Wonderful house! We were a group of thirteen adults there to celebrate a 60th birthday. The house was perfect, plenty of space everywhere, very well equipped and warm and cosy for a February stay. We used Crabapple catering to cook for us on the Saturday night and they were excellent. Highly recommended.

    A great venue for a family party. Swanage town is a short walk away and the facilities in the house are perfect for self catering. The lounge and dining room are the perfect party area. All in all, a great experience!
