Property Summary

An absolutely beautiful, charming and spacious home located on a highly desirable road within the excellent North Dorset village of Motcombe.

Motcombe is a village neighbouring Shaftesbury and Gillingham. The village of Motcombe benefits from a locally run community shop, a memorial/village hall which hosts a variety of activities, a traditional country pub and a bus service that runs to and from Shaftesbury – Gillingham.

On the outskirts of Motcombe is one of the county’s most prestigious preparatory schools in Port Regis which has been rated Excellent by the Independent Schools Inspectorate.

The North Dorset Saxon hilltop market town of Shaftesbury is famed for the iconic cobbled street of Gold Hill and rich history going back to the times of King Alfred.
Shaftesbury is a delightful community orientated town with an attractive and bustling High Street that provides most everyday requirements including a farmer’s market, cafés, charity shops, various retail shops and a cottage hospital.
The local road network offers strong connections to the other main towns in the region including Gillingham, Salisbury, Sherborne, Warminster and Yeovil as well as to the South Coast. In addition the A303 links with the M3 that makes London accessible for the motorist.
There are railway stations at Gillingham (4.5 miles) and Tisbury (8 miles) with mainline services to London (Waterloo) and the West Country. Families are drawn to this area by the quality of life and excellent choice of state and independent schools including Port Regis, Clayesmore, Sandroyd and Bryanston amongst many others. Shaftesbury also offers several ways to explore the stunning countryside and traditionally English villages of the Blackmore Vale, Cranborne Chase and Wiltshire Downs with their many miles of public footpaths and bridleways.
