  • Melbury Abbas is a village nestling at the foot of Spreadeagle Hill between Blandford and Shaftesbury. Mentioned in the' Domesday Book' as ‘Meleberie', the shape of the village has changed little over the centuries with its roots in farming.

  • The area is within the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has many scenic walks and lovely riding.
  • The area is well-known for its abundance of excellent state and private schools and from the A350 there is superb access to the north (Warminster, Bath) Salisbury via the A30 and A303 to London and the west.
  • Shaftesbury (about 2 miles) has a lovely high street and range of independent shops, boutiques, restaurants as well as supermarkets.
  • Gillingham (7 miles) has a mainline station (London Waterloo about 2 hours).
