    There are lots of young families in the area. Good primary schools in Stalbridge, Horsington, Stour Provost. Good independent supermarket in Stalbridge, Waitrose in Gillingham, Sainsburys in Sherborne. Main line stations at Gillingham, Templecombe and Sherborne – approx 2 hrs to Waterloo. Good independent primary and secondary schools in area. Very rural, must be prepared to drive!

    The countryside in the area between Sherborne and Shaftesbury is much flatter than south of Sherborne (the area I am more familiar with). I do know however that their are good schools and shopping facilities as Sue has told you. All in all though a wonderful area in which to live.
