Press Release | DOMVS launches beautiful five-bedroom home with four separate cottages and swimming pool.

Dominey’s, located in Buckland Newton, a quintessential Dorset village, is an enchanting Grade II Listed, thatched house with almost 4,400 square feet of flexible living accommodation. The house comes with four extensively renovated, self-contained cottages, currently used for holiday lettings. Each beautifully finished cottage has recently had a rear, two-storey extension, and comes with a wood-burning stove in the living area and a private patio and garden, making them a very popular choice for holidaymakers. Income for each of  the cottages starts from £560 per week, and at the height of season, the largest cottage yields an impressive £2,000 per week.

In the main house, an inglenook fireplace and wood-burner take centre stage in the formal dining room, while the kitchen/breakfast room opens out to the landscaped grounds of some 1.5 acres. The drawing room has a separate study area with doors to the outside, and also on the ground floor is a further large study and bathroom, which would lend itself to a variety of uses. Upstairs, there are five good sized double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal en suite bedroom has beautiful views over the gardens and the second bedroom has the potential for a walk-in closet and en suite.

Owners Adele and Nigel Murray say: “The renovation of the cottages was a labour of love, in which we wanted to retain the heritage, whilst providing all the mod cons you’d expect from a holiday rental. With three two-bed cottages and one three-bed cottage, we’re kept busy throughout the year, and it’s wonderful to see so many people enjoy our extended home and beautiful gardens. We have loved every minute of living in such a friendly village and will miss being within walking distance of our local pub, The Gaggle of Geese, where you are always certain to have a warm welcome.” 

Outside, the grounds of Dominey’s have been meticulously designed and as a result, the garden, in previous years, has been open to the public under the National Garden Scheme. The swimming pool area has a pool house and there is considerable space for parking, as well as four garages. The grounds also benefit from various outbuildings and the surrounding countryside has direct footpath access.

Greg Carter from DOMVS says: “It’s not every day you get the privilege of selling such a fabulous home. The house and grounds are stunning, but it’s the cottages that have the WOW! factor. The interiors are cosy, characterful and tastefully finished, and are a great opportunity for someone ready to take on an existing, successful business. For those not wishing to embark on holiday lettings, the cottages would absolutely suit multi-generational living and if my budget allowed, this home would be perfect for me and my visiting children! Buckland Newton is also a fabulous village, equidistant from the historic abbey town of Sherborne and the county town of Dorchester, where there are rail connections to London.”
