The Property

A rare opportunity to rent a charming semi-detached country property on the edge of the Melbury Estate. The character rich three bedroom property also benefits from a large garden situated in the hamlet of Melbury Osmond. The property has been updated and improved over the last few years but the Estate have tried to keep as many traditional and original pieces as possible.

Melbury Osmond is commonly described as one of West Dorset’s most picturesque villages.


Melbury Osmond is a tranquil rural village benefiting from being on a no-through road.  A wide range of shopping and amenities can be found in the nearby towns of Yeovil, Dorchester and Sherborne, and the World Heritage Coast is only a half hour drive away. There is also a main line railway into London Waterloo taking 2-3 hours from Yeovil.


From the main A37 Yeovil to Dorchester road turn in at the Melbury Osmond junction and follow the road around through a sharp left hand bend, until you get to a church on the left hand side. Continue down the hill for approximately 300 yards and the property will be on your right hand side.
