Radipole is about 2 miles from the coastal resort of Weymouth and 8 miles from the county town of Dorchester. Both these towns have excellent shops, schools, restaurants and main line railway stations to London Waterloo.


The Mill House is believed to have origins dating back to the mid-18th century. Built of Portland stone under a slate roof the present owners have improved the property over recent years and it is offered for sale in excellent order. The accommodation is light and spacious with many rooms having fine views over the garden.

Situated in the heart of Radipole village, a conservation area, The Mill House is set in delightful, mature gardens of about 2.035 acres with the free flowing River Wey running through. The gardens are extremely secluded and include some fine specimen trees, a small area of woodland and a paddock.

The Dorset coast which is now recognised as a World Heritage site is only a short distance away with its spectacular coastal path. It is also worth noting that the 2012 Olympic sailing events are due to take place at Weymouth and Portland.
