Cerne Abbas is a popular village in the heart of Thomas Hardy's Dorset and is surrounded by rolling hills and countryside. The village is most probably famous for its Giant carved into the chalk hillside but also has many places of interest including ancient church, medieval abbey, Tudor cottages and range of Tea rooms, restaurants and pubs. There is also a primary school, doctor's surgery and village shops.
The main towns of Dorchester and Sherborne are about 8 miles equidistant where a wide range of facilities for education, entertainment health and leisure can be found.
Sport in the area includes golf at Came Down, Dorchester Cricket, Football and Rugby Clubs and Sailing in the soon to be Olympic waters of Portland and Weymouth. Communications are excellent with main line railway links to London Waterloo from all the major centres, cross channel services at Poole and Weymouth, airport at Bournemouth and despite the very rural nature of the surrounding area there is a very effective road network.

The electric double gates open to the gravelled driveway which leads to the parking area to the side of Barton Lodge.

PARKING SPACE for one car. Separate visitor parking.


The communal grounds predominately are laid to two areas of lawn with fine mature Beech trees. To one corner of the upper lawn is an open fronted columned summer house. There is a pedestrian access to Wills lane.

A 199 year lease was granted from 1st January 2005 plus share of the freehold. The parking space is freehold. The maintenance charge for 3 Barton Lodge is £173.75 per month which is paid to the management company.
