  • "The bungalow was exactly what was expected."

    I agree with some of the previous comments about it being a little dated. However made me less worried about dirty dog paws. My only negative comments would be that the mattress and pillows in the small room definitely need replacing, mattress was very uncomfortable and pillows hard. Also the shower needs a pump, very poor water power meaning I needed to use a jug over the bath to wash my hair. The bungalow is in a great location for walks and close to the town whilst still feeling rural.

  • "Very nice cottage in perfect position within walking distance of excellent pub,The Sun and Dorchester town centre."

    Very clean and comfortable beds. Bedrooms quite small but ok. Internet slow but acceptable. Rear garden to lawn and secure for dogs. Can hear passing traffic but not offensive. Would recommend to anyone interested.

About the location


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.
