Sellers Comments

We love living here because the village is unique due to the layout and design of the street. There is a true sense of community with the church, post office, pub which serves food and has accommodation. The village also has it's own medical centre and dispensary.

There is always something to do with the range of beautiful walks, the Abbey grounds with it's golf course, and swimming pool. Every two years we have the famous 18th century street fair where the whole street is transformed into a 18th century fete, with various stalls and crafts being demonstrated. If you want to be involved and an active member of the community here there are various groups you can join within the village.

When you are in the village you are in the heart of the English countryside, but it's only a short journey to the market towns of Dorchester, Blandford and Wimborne which offer a variety of shops, restaurants and other amenities.

It's such a lovely place to live,
