Sherborne Estate Agents
Who we are
We are country estate agents with unrivalled knowledge of the Dorset and Somerset countryside and specialist expertise of equestrian, agricultural, period and family homes with land.
Being a small but senior team, we pride ourselves on building long term relationships with our clients, supporting them every step of the way, from initial enquiry to completion and beyond.
With experience in law, agricultural administration and equestrian enterprises, we are able to identify genuine interest and offer honest, informed advice. We grew up here and are raising and educating our children here. It is because we know our region and the local communities so well, that we are able to make accurate premium price evaluations. We also appreciate that property is much more than bricks and mortar.
We understand the difficult decisions made by those transferring their family home to the next generation. This is why we endeavour to make the journey to completion as straightforward as possible while achieving the best possible result for our clients.

Our office is located in the heart of the famously pretty and historic market town of Sherborne, arguably the most attractive town in Dorset. Situated on South Street, an extension of the town's high street and a minute's walk from the Abbey, our office benefits from the pedestrian traffic of the town centre and is highly visible to the regular vehicular traffic travelling between the shops and mainline railway station.
Our region spans South Somerset and West Dorset, covering the whole area from Sherborne to Dorchester and west to Bridport and the coast beyond. It includes some of the most stunning countryside and coastline in the South West, as well as some of the country's top independent and state schools. It is no surprise then that we have hundreds of potential buyers on our books looking for country homes in our area.
Please see our area guide for more detailed information about the region's towns, transport links, schools and leisure activities.
Our Sherborne office supports many local events including point-to-points and hunt competitions. We also hold regular auctions across Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire and Hampshire.
