The West Country region
Contact the advertiser for further information about the region.
Fontmell Magna is a village in North Dorset, located between Cranborne Chase to the east and the Blackmore Vale to the west, surrounded by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Named after the chalk streamed Fontmell Brook, the village is home to thatched cottages and a local pub serving good food and ales. The historic town of Shaftesbury is 4 miles away, with its abbey, and 'Gold Hill', perhaps best known from TV’s Hovis adverts. Also within travelling distance are Sherborne with its castle and abbey, Stonehenge, Salisbury and Bath, and the picturesque Jurassic coast. The area also offers good walking.
