    “It was a lovely, beautiful cottage which was beautifully furnished and very well equipped.”

    The owner met us, showed us around and the left us alone. My only issue was that despite it all being on one level it was not so easily accessed for my wife who has limited mobility, to be fair it was not described as such, the entrance step was very high and no hand rail, the bath was also pretty difficult for her to negotiate but both were manageable with help.

    The owner met us, showed us around and the left us alone. My only issue was that despite it all being on one level it was not so easily accessed for my wife who has limited mobility, to be fair it was not described as such, the entrance step was very high and no hand rail, the bath was also pretty difficult for her to negotiate but both were manageable with help. Unfortunately I had to do some work whilst there and the internet was not very strong, but again with a hotspot on my phone we managed, EE signal was superb. Overall it was a beautiful out of the way setting, several great places to eat and relax.

About the location

BUCKLAND NEWTON

Dorchester 12 miles; Sherborne 12 miles.

The West Dorset village of Buckland Newton, and its seven surrounding hamlets including Brockhampton, is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of Blackmore Vale, and at the head of the quaintly named Piddle Valley. The village is 12 miles south of historic Sherborne and 12 miles north of Thomas Hardy's Dorchester. Locally there are lovely scenic walks to be had, while a visit to nearby ancient Cerne Abbas is not to be missed, with its instantly recognisable chalk giant and numerous tea rooms and inns serving real ales and good food. Alternatively, travel south to the memorable Dorset Jurassic Coast, now a designated World Heritage Site, where many sandy beaches await you and provide visitors with great facilities for all kinds of water sports. Weymouth offers golden sandy beaches and a bustling harbour from which you can take a day trip to the Channel Islands. A short drive from here takes you to Portland Harbour and the rugged “Isle” of Portland, which is linked to Weymouth by dramatic Chesil Beach. With fascinating Sherborne and bustling Dorchester also just a short drive away, you really are spoilt for choice in this lovely part of Dorset.
