If you are moving house, looking to start a new life in Cattistock or retiring to Cattistock, we can help you.
The pretty village of Cattistock, between Dorchester and Yeovil, has a proud history, with links to HMS Cattistock and settlements going back millennia.
However, these days it is perhaps most associated with a quirky annual event called the Dorset Knob Throwing Festival!
Once a year, its tiny population of 509 plays host to thousands of visitors eager to chuck hard, knob-shaped savoury biscuits around in a bid to win prizes. The associated food festival attracts a swarm of guests, who nibble and sip their way through some of the finest food and drink the area has to offer.
The Knob Fest aside, the rest of the year Cattistock could be described as ‘sleepy’, though it is not without facilities or stuff to do.
Its village stores, which was voted “Best Dorset Village Shop” in 2017, sell a wide range of items and incorporates a post office. The wooden play structures in the park next to the village hall attract families from a wide area and the pub, The Fox & Hounds, does a roaring trade with lovely food and drink and a welcoming atmosphere. The pub was voted Best Dorset Local on no fewer than three occasions in the past decade.
Cattistock also has a thriving cricket club and busy lawn tennis club, plus clubs for other sports and arts activities.
Cattistock Hunt was founded in the early 19th century and has adapted to modern times and rules, yet the sight of the hounds being walked through the village en masse is one of the most evocative practices you’ll ever see.
The village has a very active WI, alongside numerous clubs. Its summer fete involved activities for a whole week in July and even involve a ‘Cattistock’s Got Talent’ show.
The parish includes the smaller villages and hamlets of Sandhills, Chalmington and Chilfrome, and other pretty areas such as Chantmarle and Frome St Quintin. The larger village of Evershot is just three miles away and you can get to the towns of Yeovil, Dorchester, Beaminster, Bridport, Weymouth, Sherborne and Crewkerne in under half an hour’s drive. There is also a train station a mile away in Maiden Newton. However if you work from home, the good news is the broadband is good.
A school bus takes children a mile to Greenford primary school in Maiden Newton and secondary school pupils are bussed to Beaminster.
There are numerous beaches within a 30-minute drive, and glorious walks along the Frome on offer – you can walk for miles or take the shorter circular routes and you are deep in gorgeous countryside in a few moments.
