Sherborne 5 miles.
The quaint North Dorset village of Leigh, together with the neighbouring villages of Chetnole and Yetminster are located just 5 miles south of historic Sherborne, and 6 miles north west of picturesque Cerne Abbas, on the edge of the Blackmore Vale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Affectionately described by Thomas Hardy in ‘Tess of The D’Urbervilles’ as ‘The Vale of the Little Dairies’, the village provides an excellent touring base for exploring both North Dorset and South Somerset. There are numerous places of interest in all directions including the ancient town of Sherborne, with its castle and abbey, Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum, Montecute House, Glastonbury Abbey and Tor, Wells Cathedral and Wookey Hole, while the local railway halts at Chetnole and Yetminster offering an easy railway link to either Weymouth or Bath. An idyllic village location providing a super holiday base.
