The property

Frome Lodge House is situated on the outskirts of the county town of Dorchester.

The property, which is set back from the Old Sherborne Road, overlooks the Frome River Water Meadow and is a perfect base for couples or a small family.

The property is within easy walking distance of the centre of Dorchester but offers the bonus of pretty rural views. All on ground level this property has a contemporary bright combined living kitchen and dining room benefitting from patio doors to enjoy the enclosed rear lawned garden on sunny days and a woodburning stove to keep you snug on chilly days.

The centre of Dorchester is around a half a mile away and has a great combination of shopping, eating, historical and visitor attractions.

The traditional high is street peppered with well-known shops is complemented by lanes accommodating charming boutique shops and independents.

The town boasts more than four museums including one dedicated to dinosaurs and another to Tutankhamun.

The beautiful Borough Gardens have tennis courts, a play area and traditional band stand.

Other 'must dos' in and around Dorchester include the Iron Age Maiden Castle and an original Roman Townhouse.

Adjacent to the property is a countryside walk / cycle lane.

If you stroll just a couple of minutes in one direction and you will soon arrive at the Sun Inn at Charminster, a popular pub with visitors and locals which serves good food.

A stroll in the other direction and you will reach the pretty river path which leads to the bottom of Dorchester centre.

Around 10 miles away is the coast at Weymouth which boasts a long and sandy award winning beach along with traditional beachside entertainments such as donkey rides and Punch and Judy, and numerous shops and restaurants. This is an ideal small property to get away from the everyday hustle and bustle of life.

Allowing you to spend long lazy days exploring this popular part of Dorset.

About the location


Weymouth 7 miles.

A trip to Dorset is not complete without visiting the market town of Dorchester, with its Roman roads, museums and a wide selection of pubs and restaurants. Enjoy a scenic walk around Maiden Castle, the largest hillfort in England, or visit the County Museum which has a room devoted to Thomas Hardy, born just two miles away in Bockhampton. Just seven miles away are the glorious gently shelving beaches and picturesque harbour of Weymouth, and the rugged peninsula of Portland, linked to the mainland by Chesil Beach, part of the breathtaking World Heritage Coastline. In fact, you’ll find yourself so intoxicated by Dorset’s magic spell, you won’t want to return home at the end of your stay!
