Willen Farm is situated in an attractive rural location surrounded by it’s own land and away from any passing traffic. The property is within easy driving distance to the centre of the popular village of Leigh, which itself lies in the beautiful Dorset countryside to the south of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne and the local regional centre of Yeovil. The village has a church, a garage/shop and a village hall to its centre, while both Sherborne and Yeovil lie within short motoring distance providing between them an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities.

Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with many walks to be had from the village itself while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with a railway station at nearby Yetminster on the Weymouth to Bath and Bristol line. A main line station at Sherborne links directly with London Waterloo, while road links are along the A303 joined at Wincanton giving swift access to London and the Home Counties along the M3, M25 route.

The property is approached over a shared driveway and is well set back from the road. The driveway leads to a generous tarmac parking and turning area adjacent to the property with double garage equipped with twin up and over doors (power and light connected). Attractive level gardens surround the property, bounded by post and rail fencing and mature woodland along the eastern boundary. The gardens predominantly offer well maintained areas of lawn, interspersed with a range of well stocked borders containing a number of mature trees and shrubs.
