LOCATION

Sherborne is a fine Cotswolds former estate village still largely owned and managed by the National Trust and dominated by the former Sherborne estate and Sherborne House.

The village has been the setting for BBC's Springwatch and Autumnwatch over the past few years.

There is a thriving community centred around the village shop, primary school, village hall and church.

Sherborne occupies a superb position in the heart of the Cotswolds, between the nearby towns of Northleach, Burford and the larger village of Bourton-on-the-Water, all of which provide an extensive range of good local shops and services.

The major commercial centres of Cheltenham, Oxford and Cirencester are easily accessible via the nearby A40 and A429 Fosse Way and there are mainline rail services at Charlbury, Kingham and Cheltenham.
