Dog friendly accommodation around Buckland Newton

Buckland Newton is a rural village on the edge of the Dorset Downs, within the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is in a conservation area at the head of Blackmore Vale with impressive views of the woodland surrounds. Its position midway between Sherborne and Dorchester makes it an ideal base for touring. Local amenities include a village inn, a post office and village shop. Buckland Newton hosts a famous Goose Auction and an annual Art and Flower festival with floral displays, paintings, drawings and other works by local artists. A wide choice of country cottages and rural B&Bs can be found around the village, many of them with luxurious interiors and cosy woodburners. Walking holidays are popular in the area, and no need to leave Rover behind - a good choice of dog friendly B&Bs and cottages sit in the downland around the village.

Goose Auction

Another popular local event is the twice yearly "Goose Auction" featured on Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's "Escape from River Cottage". Its purpose is to raise money for charity. A variety of pre-bred Geese are put up for auction at the local pub aptly called the "Gaggle of Geese". The event attracts visitors from all over Dorset and is usually held on the late May Bank Holiday Monday and on a Sunday in early September.

Dorset Poets - William Barnes

In the village centre you'll see a memorial plaque to Thomas Barnes an ancestor of William Barnes the prolific Dorset dialect poet. He wrote hundreds of poems throughout the nineteenth century and was noted as making a significant contribution to publishing in Dorset dialect; most notably in the "Poems of Rural Life" series. He also published philosophical works and called for the purification of the English language by removing Greek, Latin and foreign influences so it could be better understood by those without a classical education. Barnes was a friend of Hardy and was greatly influenced by him. Hardy published a selection of Barnes' poetry in 1908.
