The Scholars is situated in the picturesque village of Pimperne within the Cranborne Chase, in the heart of North Dorset. The historical location dates back to the Anglo Saxon period and is noted in the Domesday Book in the late eleventh century.

The local Church of St. Peter was rebuilt in 1872 and still retains part of the original building from Norman times. Pimperne also records a connection to King Henry VIII when it became a Royal Manor. King Henry granted it to his then wife Catherine Howard and later on her successor Katherine Parr in 1543.

This lovely village has a small but active community centred around its local shop, post office, Parish Council, period style pubs and its excellent local school. The village is surrounded by many cycling areas and attractive country walks.

More extensive amenities can be found close by with road links to the bustling Georgian market town of Blandford Forum which is just two miles away, whilst the picturesque town of Shaftesbury lies ten miles away. The Medieval Cathedral City of Salisbury is approximately a thirty minute drive by car.
