Dominey’s Yard is a small collection of charming Victorian farm workers cottages which have been thoughtfully and tastefully transformed into 4 beautiful self-catering cottages set in the idyllic countryside of Dorset.
We bought Dominey’s Yard in December 2019 and although the cottages were very dated and small we realised their potential in the stunning location. In February 2020, having instructed a local builder, we embarked on a major 6 month renovation project to upgrade and extend and to transform them into the beautiful cottages that they are today. Original features side by side with all mod cons make the interiors cosy, characterful and tastefully furnished.
Having spent the past 10 years owning a large holiday cottage business in Cornwall, we have a wealth of experience and knowledge in providing a perfect holiday setting for guests to relax, feel at home and make wonderful memories. We live in the grounds of Dominey’s Yard and are on hand, but not intrusive, for any advice on places to visit and things to do or just a chat. We are more than happy to arrange anything from our own Landrover pickup service for tired walkers to delicious home-made cakes and bakes to enjoy during your stay – our ethos is:
“Just ask and if we can we will!”

Dominey’s Yard is located in Buckland Newton, a quintessential Dorset village set between the pretty Abbey town of Sherborne and the County town of Dorchester. The village is at the head of the Piddle Valley and is surrounded by glorious countryside, much of which is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
The village has a well stocked village store and a friendly family run pub just a few minutes walk away. The Jurassic coast with it’s beautiful beaches and the SW coast path is only 20 miles away and within easy reach for a great day out.
