Wingfield Court lies on the west side of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne a particularly attractive Dorset town with amenities that include the Abbey, a main line station, a library, three doctors surgeries and a comprehensive range of shops, public houses and restaurants. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with golf clubs at both Sherborne and Yeovil. Communication links are good with a main line station linking directly with London Waterloo while road links are along the A303 joined at Wincanton giving swift access to London and the Home Counties along the M3, M25 route.


The complex has been organised so that residents can be as sociable as they would like with the home owner lounge being the centre of any events organised by the residents but also can be booked in advance for private parties. There is a laundry and a refuse store while within the apartment there is a guest suite for the use of visiting relatives for a relatively modest daily rate. A house manager mans an office within the complex from Monday to Friday between 8.30 and 1.30 on those days supervising the running of the complex but also monitoring emergency calls. When the house manager is not in residence calls are diverted to a call centre that is monitored on a 24 hour basis.

Doors from the sitting room provide access to areas of communal garden on the west side of the complex that provide outside sitting areas during the summer months. Our current vendor has had permission to utilise the courtyard immediately outside the sitting room doors for use as an informal potting garden
