Dorset Holiday Cottages: The Area.

holiday cottagesThese attractive Dorset Holiday Cottages are peacefully situated between the Dorset Downs and the Blackmore Vale in the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Domineys Cottages are tucked away off a 'No through' road leading to farms and footpaths, making them an ideal holiday cottage base from which to explore Dorset's wonderful countryside - with rural landscapes which have retained their tranquil beauty over the centuries.

Dorset is steeped in history, offering castles, abbeys, museums, National Trust properties and other historic houses and gardens to visit, as well as the Jurassic World Heritage Coastline, wildlife parks and bird and nature reserves which may be of interest. Golf, fishing and horse riding are also possible.
The woods and fields here are home to foxes, deer, badgers, buzzards, ravens and herons with the small birds, butterflies and moths in the garden.

There will once more be a pub with good food, 4 minutes walk from Domineys Cottages. There are out door play facilities for children. So no need to get in the car for a drink or a meal. However if you want to go further afield, there are also many attractive pubs and restaurants in adjacent villages, a short drive away, at Pulham, Middle Marsh, Cerne Abbas and in the Piddle Valley.

Our Dorset Holiday Cottages are located in Buckland Newton (Hardy's Newland Buckton), about eleven miles from the attractive towns, Sherborne, Dorchester and Sturminster Newton. They are within easy driving distance of Bristol, Bath, Salisbury, Bournemouth, Exeter and the Dorset coast..
