Buckland Newton is at the head of the Piddle Valley in West Dorset, and is approximately 10 miles north of the Roman town of Dorchester and 9 miles south of the market town of Sherborne. It lies almost hidden in a fold of hills on the southern edge of the Blackmore Vale. The surrounding countryside is very rural with hills all around. There is interesting wildlife to see including buzzards, woodpeckers, red kites, egret, heron, pheasants, badgers and foxes. The pub in the village called the Gaggle of Geese holds Goose Auctions in May and September and is recommended for light lunches or dinner - 5 mins by car, 10 mins walking. The shop in the village is within walking distance of the Stables and holds a supply of essential items. The Church is largely 15th Century but has a 13th Century, early English, chancel that was overlooked by the heavy handed Victorians!
