The parish and village of Broadmayne lies along both sides of the main A352 road between Warmwell Cross and Dorchester. Broadmayne anciently belonged to the Martel and Fitz-Herbert families. During the reign of Henry VIII it was sold to the Talbot family and in the Visitation (of the Heralds) of Dorset in 1623, their pedigree is recorded beginning with William Talbot of Broad Maine alias Mayne Martin.
The church, dedicated to St. Martin occupies a site on a hill commanding a view over the village. Dating mainly from the late 13th century, it is built chiefly of Portland stone, with additions made in the 14th-16th centuries. Several old buildings survive within the village and many are English Heritage listed.
There is also a public house, popular first school, shop/post office, village hall with varied activities, plus a football pitch and tennis court and easy access to the World Heritage Coastline. Country walks on your doorstep and Ringstead Bay just a short distance away are just some of the many attractions within this area known for its Outstanding Natural Beauty. The county town of Dorchester (4 miles North West) has a wide range of facilities including mainline (London/Waterloo) station.

Outside, the property comes with a spacious, yet low maintenance garden currently laid to shingle and hardstanding, with stepping stones leading to a greenhouse and garden shed. A mixture of shrubs and potted plants border the outer side of the garden.
