Nestled in a valley between the New Forest National Park and the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Salisbury is a Cathedral City that, despite being approximately 2 hours from London by train and car, is perfect for a countryside retreat. Steeped in history, the UNESCO World Heritage site of Stonehenge is only 8 miles away and the Gothic Cathedral within the City holds one of only four Magna Carta manuscripts.
Overlooking the Blackmore Vale and parts of the basin of the River Stour, Shaftesbury is an Anglo Saxon town that is home to the infamous ‘Gold Hill’, site of Ridley Scott’s Hovis advert from the 1970’s. As well as the scenery, Shaftesbury is a busy town with all amenities in easy reach as well as excellent preparatory schools.
The name ‘Warminster’ was first seen in the 10th Century but settlement there can be traced back to the Anglo Saxon period. Warminster is the nearest town to The Longleat Estate and Safari Park, the home of the Marquesses of Bath and one of the best examples in the country of Elizabethan architecture. The town of Warminster is a bustling town, hosting a Farmers Market on the first and third Fridays of every month.
Sitting on the banks of the River Stour, Blandford Forum is a Georgian market town and a local hub for many outlying villages. The town was almost completely rebuilt in 1731 after a large fire destroyed 95% of the town. Since then, Blandford Forum and the surrounding areas have become home to outstanding country estates and the prestigious Bryanston School.
Placed slightly further upstream of the River Stour, Sturminster Newton is situated in the heart of the Blackmore Vale and, like Blandford Forum, is a hub for a number of outlying villages and hamlets. Once the home of Dorset writer Thomas Hardy, Sturminster Newton is the perfect countryside idyll with a strong array of schools locally.
