With two castles (including a home built by Sir Walter Raleigh and gardens by Capability Brown), Sherborne certainly has fine pedigree. It was once the capitol of the Kingdom of Wessex and has been the site of sieges, sackings, festivals and even the tomb of two kings.
Once a medieval market town, it is now a picturesque location packed with independent shops, great cafes, characterful pubs and is well-kept for locals and visitors to enjoy. There are good amenities, country walks, and access to everything you’ll need to build your new home.
If it was good enough for Sir Walter…
There is a leisure centre with a swimming pool and gym, offering both fitness and swimming classes. There are a number of sports pitches as well as a golf club. Three art galleries and a number of antique and furniture shops are lovely places to browse, but if you want to get out for walks, cycling, jogging or with four-legged friends, head to Quarr Local Nature Reserve.
Sherborne is a rural idyl, there are no motorways, or dual carriageways to disturb the peace, as such motoring reflects the pace of life. The closest large town is Yeovil, a short drive away. The nearest airport can be found at Bristol (31 miles), while trains to London Waterloo are around 2 hours and 10 minutes.
