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 benefits from generous accommodation for a period property and a large garden and is situated in the centre of the village of Evershot. The property has been updated and improved over the last few years but the Estate have tried to keep as many traditional and original features as possible.


Evershot is an attractive small village with an active community. The village offers a range of local amenities including a village shop, church, pub, spa hotel and a primary school as well as a playgroup at the Village Hall. The larger towns of Yeovil and Dorchester are approximately 10-13 miles away and offer a wide range of amenities as well as a main line railway into London Waterloo taking 2-3 hours.


When travelling from Dorchester take the A37 Yeovil road until you see the turning for Evershot and Holywell. Proceed along the road until you arrive in Evershot.  Proceed past the small village green on your right hand side and 3 The Common is the first property on the right. Parking will be on the road side.

When travelling from Beaminster take the B3163 all the way to Evershot. As you enter Evershot go down the hill past the church on the left and shop on the right. Proceed through the village past the Primary School and Village Hall and the property is located on your left hand side shortly before the village green.
