Dorset has long been regarded as the epitome of the ideal rural county and when searching for a character country property for sale or rent, it is often the first one that comes to mind.
With its slower paced lifestyle, incredibly beautiful and varied scenery, stunning coastline, rich history and literary connections, it really is a special place.
Much of North Dorset is encompassed by the Blackmore Vale (part of the Stour valley) stretching from Gillingham in the north east to south of Sherborne in the West. Local market towns include Shaftesbury, Gillingham and Sturminster Newton.
Port Regis, Bryanston, Sherborne, Hanford, Lewiston & Knighton House.
Gillingham to London Waterloo from 2 hours.
