The property is situated in the heart of this sought after Tarrant Valley village, about 5 miles from Wimborne Minster and 4 miles from Blandford Forum. The village has a parish church, a village hall and the True Lovers Knot Inn. The nearest primary school is located in the nearby villages of Spetisbury or Pamphill, and Dumpton Preparatory School can be found just outside of Wimborne.
