Leweston is situated three miles outside of Sherborne, Dorset surrounded by beautiful countryside in the heart of Hardy’s Wessex. Sherborne is one of the most stunning towns in the County with an abundance of medieval buildings, nationally famous Abbey, picturesque Almshouse and two Castles. It regularly appears in film and on television and most recently was the location for Far from the Madding Crowd.

With extensive grounds surrounding a beautiful Georgian Manor House Leweston provides a location which whilst being safe, is close to a town with good transport links to London and South West airports. Within the 46 acre estate sits our swimming pool, a full-sized all weather pitch, a walled garden play area, Enchanted Wood Forest School, tennis courts as well as a wealth of historical features including work by Thomas Mawson and George Sheringham.
