Fontmell Magna is a delightful traditional Dorset village set to the South of the Saxon hill top town of Shaftesbury which is one of the oldest and highest towns in England and sits proudly above the Blackmore Vale. The village is very well served by the local pub with the stream running between the bar and dining room, village shop, primary school, post office and branch surgery for Abbey View Medical center. The village hall provides local events and has a tennis court that is available to hire.
Shaftesbury has a range of supermarkets, public houses, restaurants and take aways. However what you will really want to do is walk up the famous high street and while away your time in the wide range of independent shops and coffee houses. At the top of the high street you will find the well renowned cobbled Gold Hill which featured in the Hovis adverts. Fontmell Magna itself boasts some of best countryside that North Dorset has to offer over the rolling Dorset Hills. There are a good number of independent and public schools nearby, transport links have you well situated to travel South to Poole, north you will be East & West on the A303 and within 30 minutes of the cathedral city of Salisbury and Yeovil town. You are also only 60 minutes away from the Spa city of Bath. The nearest mainline railway station is in Gillingham which is on the London Waterloo line.
