The Property
This substantial former rectory that has colour washed elevations under a predominantly slate roof is approached via a gravelled driveway leading down to the house, a parking area and the Coach House which has a cobbled yard, stabling, tack room, garage and attached lean-to-car port.

The annexe is currently sub-divided from the main house but should access be restored at both ground and first floor levels, the house would have the benefit of two staircases and seven bedrooms. Features include many sash windows with shutters in all the principle ground floor rooms, good ceiling heights and some rooms with open fireplaces, picture rails and attractive views over the surrounding West Dorset Countryside.

Outside there is a Coach House with cobbled yard, stables with hayloft above and well maintained and attractive formal gardens including sloping lawns with a variety of wild flowers, terrace, shrub borders, hedging and mature trees including an Oak. There is a walled kitchen garden and greenhouses as well as an orchard and several paddocks and ponds which adjoin open farmland.

Please Note
There is a public footpath at the top of the drive. The property is not listed and does not lie in a conservation area.


Buckland House is situated in an idyllic picturesque location within the small and quiet village of Buckland Ripers with a parish church. Conveniently located between Weymouth and Dorchester the village can also be accessed from the coast road which stretches along the stunning World Heritage Jurassic Coastline from Weymouth to Bridport, passing through the villages of Portesham, Burton Bradstock and Abbotsbury which is home to both The Abbotsbury Swannery and the Sub Tropical Gardens.

Both the nearby coastal town of Weymouth and the county town of Dorchester offer a comprehensive range of shopping facilities, schools and rail links (including Upwey within 2 miles of the house) to both London Waterloo and Bristol Temple Meads.

There is outstanding walking and riding across the surrounding countryside including the Fleet and Chesil Beach as well as the sandy beaches of Weymouth. There is the opportunity to enjoy water sport activities at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, golf at Weymouth or West Bat and other sporting facilities available on your doorstep.
