About the neighbourhood
There is so much to see and do in West Dorset and the surrounding area, beautiful beaches, the old town and castles of Sherborne, a short drive to the City of Bath or Longleat Safari park. There are also lots of attractions if you get a rainy day, the Fleet Air Arm or Haynes Motor Museums both keep you busy for a full day and are just a few minutes drive. Nearby Yeovil also offers a multi-screen cinema, bowling and shopping. Set in the midst of stunning, unspoilt countryside, the picturesque buildings, ancient inns and quaint shops of the ancient town of Sherborne, line the banks of the River Yeo. This charming, rural settlement is probably best known for its beautiful abbey and two imposing castles - the newer of which dates back to 1594 and boasts incredible Tudor landscaped gardens. ...
How to get there
From the centre Sherborne take the A30 in a westerly direction toward Yeovil and drive along the dual carriageway. Turn right signposted ‘Over Compton’ by taking the filter in the middle of the dual carriageway (please take care). Proceed to a crossroads and turn right here. Follow the road and approximately 400 metres you will see Meadow View Barn on the left hand side.
