About the location


Sherborne 2.8 miles; Yeovil 7.5 miles; Gillingham 9.4 miles

The large and friendly village of Milborne Port is settled in the South Eastern area of Somerset, near Blackmore Vale and the Dorset border. Milborne Port is home to all the essentials, including a good selection of shops, a post office, library, doctors' surgery, pubs and play areas for children. The surrounding area is fantastic for walking and cycling with its wonderful countryside, which rests on the banks of the River Gascoigne. During the Saxon period, Milborn Port was a mint town and was the most profitable market in Somerset in 1086. Nearby is the historical town of Sherborne, home to a fascinating museum, which includes costumes and paintings, as well as the 16th century Sherborne Castle & Gardens with a fine interior and lovely lake. Venture further afield to Yeovil for wooded parks with natural springs and an array of great restaurants.
