Full description

A fantastic rural farmhouse set away from other properties, with farm reaching views across fields and woodland. However, this property is not isolated, with the A37 being within a few minutes drive, which puts Yeovil within fifteen minutes and Dorchester within half an hour.

Local services are well provided for in Yetminster (approx 4miles); with school, nursery, doctors surgery, convenience store, pub, vet, garage, cafe. Evershot is a stunning village a few miles to the south, hosting a good school, the Acorn inn and Summer Lodge Hotel, and a very good Bakery. The village of Yetminster also has a rail connection for the Weymouth - Bristol line. Connections for London can be caught from Yeovil or Sherborne.

High Holt is an imposing period Farm House of local stone construction under a combination of slate and thatch roofing. The property is geared for those with a small number of stock, ponies or horses, but the property can be let without the land (the land may not be rented separately)
