    “We booked Mappowder cottage, as we were waiting to move into our new house which was taking longer than expected to complete.”

    ...

    The cottage was very comfy, cosy and warm during a very cold spell in late November early December. We had everything we needed to make our stay a very pleasant one. The bedrooms were particularly splendid with beautiful crisp white cotton linen and huge cushions which gave a touch of understated decadence. The bathroom again was beautifully clean and bright with a rather magnificent roll top bath. We found Elizabeth and her husband to be very kind and considerate hosts. As we were staying in the cottage for a month, it was like a home from home, with added the extra of beautiful country views and lovely walks for our dog along the safe and long private driveway to the property. Elizabeth has her own horses stabled a short distance away and has great facilities for horse lovers who want to bring their horse or horses with them on holiday. Even if you are not into horses, it is lovely introduction to meet the two very good-natured horses who make wonderful neighbours. It is a great place for a short on long break, as there is lots to see and do for all ages. It is also a delightful quiet place to spend some time just chilling. We would certainly recommend Mappowder cottage, we would have happily stayed there longer, if we had needed to,

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.
