A unique development opportunity to acquire a historic barn with full planning permission for conversion to a two bedroomed residential dwelling on the edge of this highly desirable historic Dorset village.

PLANNING REFERENCE: Dorset Council P/FUL/2021/04236 LOCATION The conservation village of Cerne Abbas lies within the unspoilt Dorset Downs within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village itself has a vibrant community feel and an excellent range of facilities including a village shop and Post Office, tea rooms, three public houses, a first school, and doctors' and dispensing surgery. It also has the fine parish Church of St Mary, medieval abbey and its famous Cerne Abbas Giant carved into the chalk hillside. There is a bus service to both Sherborne and Dorchester.

Of particular note is the Conran-designed development at Brewery Square with its cinema, bars, restaurants and leading shops. There is a Waitrose and Tesco in Dorchester for everyday shopping, as well as the Dorset County Hospital. Up the valley in the other direction is the busy Abbey town of Sherborne. Both towns have mainline railway stations with a fast regular service to London Waterloo.
