Cerne Abbas, voted in 2008 as Britain's most desirable village, is located in the heart of Thomas Hardy's Dorset. Surrounded by gorgeous countryside that hosts an abundance of footpaths, it is an ideal location for dog owners and walkers of all ages and abilities. The village is probably most famous for its Giant carved into a chalk hillside, but also has many places of interest and amenities including its ancient church, medieval abbey, Tudor cottages, tearoom, village shop with post office, three pubs, modern village hall and village cricket ground. There is also a primary school and a doctors' surgery. Cerne Abbas is a thriving and active community with a host of activities and societies catering to a wide range of interests. A bus service runs to the historic towns of Dorchester and Sherborne, which are 8 and 12 miles away respectively, and which have a wide range of education, entertainment, shopping, health and leisure facilities. Sport in the area includes golf at Wolfedale (5 miles) and Came Down (10 miles), local cricket, football and rugby clubs and sailing off Portland and Weymouth. Communications are excellent with direct railway links from Dorchester to London Waterloo and to Bath and Bristol, cross channel ferries from Poole, and airports at Bournemouth, Exeter and Bristol.

A pedestrian gate and paths lead to the garages and the centre of Cerne Abbas village with all its amenities. Number 17 has a single brick built garage with electric up-and-over door.
