The Langton Stables formed part of the original Langton Long Estate the country seat of James Farquharson; a Regency mansion with impressive stable buildings.

The workmanship was of a high and exacting standard with great attention being paid to detail, the stables are Grade II Listed.

The hamlet comprises a cluster of houses and the church, conveniently located to Blandford town, just a mile away, while Wimborne is 9 miles distant.

The Langton Stables development occupies a magnificent location in a peaceful environment within a parkland setting with views across the Stour Valley and just ten minutes from nearby Blandford Forum ~ a classic Georgian Market town.
