The de facto 'capital' of the surrounding Blackmore Vale, Sturminster Newton lies on the River Stour, surrounded by picturesque countryside.
Historically the town lay in the heart of dairying and cheese-making country and this heritage is celebrated with the wonderful Sturminster Newton Cheese Festival each September.
This little market town was also home to author Thomas Hardy and Victorian Dorset dialect poet William Barnes. Learn more of its history at the charming thatched musuem in the centre of town, explore the shops in and around the market place or visit the working mill.
