From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


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.

    We enjoyed staying at Newton Manor House and would only comment on the configuration of the dining room. We were a party of 16 and it was quite difficult to fit the chairs around the table satisfactorily. It took a day or two to locate cutlery and crockery as it was spread between the two kitchens but not in a very logical manner. There was however masses of both when located.

    So sorry we didn't allow time to write in the visitors book before we left. Please copy this review in. We LOVED the house and had a wonderful week with three generations of family coming and going...brilliant to have so much room. The wonderful Indian Summer weather was a bonus! An amazing place with lovely historical atmosphere. Can heartly recommended local catering company Crab Apple, who did us proud for a super buffet supper. Also recommend La Trattoria and the pizza restaurant on opposite side of the road. Had a great full English breakfast overlooking the sea on our last morning at Brooks.

    What a superb property. Beautifully appointed with comfortable bedrooms and plenty of modern bathrooms. The kitchen is very well stocked, as is the utility room. Lovely gardens too. Our party of 12 adults and 2 children had a wonderful long weekend celebrating my mum's 80th birthday. Beautiful location, very easy to get into the centre of Swanage and the beach, and great access for the stunning Purbeck scenery.

    We were so delighted with everything Newton Manor House had to offer, we came home on the Friday and rebooked for August 2016. We were a party of eight adults and seven children age ranging from eleven to a year old. All were catered for, our holiday experience was perfect.

    Newton Manor House has been beautifully and thoughtfully decorated/restored. The bedrooms are all individually themed, thoughtfully and appropriately deciorated to a high standard. Beds, linen and towels all good too! Additionally, the kitchen/utility rooms are well thought through and the abundance of cooking utensils, glasses and crockery is a delight. The whole house is warm, well equiped, tastefully restored and ideal for a large family gathering to celebrate in style. We loved it and will be back.

    There were not enough chairs I the kitchen to eat breakfast. The dining room was along way. The dishwashers were too far from the kitchen
