Saxon Grange offers a selection of stunning three, four and five-bedroom homes in Shaftesbury, Dorset. Enjoying a picturesque hilltop position between Salisbury and Yeovil, Shaftesbury is one of the oldest and highest towns in Britain. Filled with old stone buildings and independent businesses, the town is also home to Gold Hill, the picturesque cobbled street with stunning far-reaching views made famous by Ridley Scott`s 1973 advert for Hovis bread. Cranborne Chase AONB is also just a stone`s throw away, with beautiful scenery to explore.

Living in a new home at Saxon Grange you`ll be less than a mile from the historic centre of Shaftesbury with its fantastic shops, attractions and services. Residents will also benefit from provisions including an outdoor recreational space and contributions to local schools, transport and primary care services.

Could this be the perfect setting for your new home


Shaftesbury provides ample retail offerings, with everything you need for day-to-day life and more. High street brands include Boots, Holland & Barratt and several banks, and there's a Tesco superstore less than a mile from the development. The town is also awash with independently-owned stores, from gift shops and greengrocers, to florists and fashion boutiques, along with a range of tempting cafes, bars and restaurants, plus the excellent deli. The weekly market is full of edible delights, and the local medical centre and hospital are a reassuring presence.


Though its beautiful setting is one of its main draws, Shaftesbury does benefit from good road links ' set between Yeovil and Salisbury, both large towns are around a 45-minute drive away. There's also a good local bus network, which includes routes to the nearest train station 4 miles away in Gillingham. From there you can catch direct trains to Yeovil, Salisbury, Exeter and even London Waterloo (2 hours).


Moving to Shaftesbury you'll be joining a friendly and vibrant community, with a host of events and attractions. Support local artists at Swans Yard, enjoy theatre, comedy, films, music and workshops at Shaftesbury Arts Centre, visit Shaftesbury Abbey Museum for some history, or take a peaceful walk through the Abbey gardens. Leisure facilities include the tennis club, leisure pool, gyms, sports clubs and snooker halls. Last but not least, the annual Festival of Food and Drink is a chance to enjoy local produce and craft, live music, a band, dancing, and the famous Cheese Racing on Gold Hill.


Families with children will be well-catered for thanks to Shaftesbury's selection of schools. There are several nurseries in the town, and Shaftesbury CofE Primary School and The Abbey CofE Primary School are both less than a half-hour walk away. Just 0.4 miles away from Saxon Grange is Shaftesbury School, a secondary school and sixth form which also offers boarding, and the neighbouring town of Gillingham, around 5 miles away, hosts more primary schools and a secondary school.

WhatHouse? Location Ratings

Working with data experts CLSQ, we assess the latest information from highly respected sources to give every current new homes development we list a rating under five core topics Health & Wellbeing, Transport Links, Tech connectivity, Finance and Education & Amenities.

CLSQ provide trusted data, technology and data-led insurance services which empower automation and decision-with-certainty for the UK property sector. We combine the certainty of data and process with the unique security provided by our de-risking solutions and insurance."
 Health and Wellbeing
Since the outbreak of Covid in 2020, the health and quality of life for ourselves and our families has become more of a priority than ever, and one of the fundamental considerations in choosing where we live. There are a host of ingredients in measuring this, and we calculate our Health & Wellbeing rating using many factors.
 Transport Links
Being within easy reach of people and places for work or leisure is a top consideration when choosing your brand new home. Can you commute easily by private or public transport, and are there routes to close by for the places you’ll want to go to? Would it be safe to leave the car at home and cycle somewhere instead? Are there convenient EV charging points in the local area?
Finances are the fundamental thing on which our choice of new home is based, but aside from what you can afford to borrow and the price cap you must consider, there’s the ongoing running costs to consider too, and what may happen to the value of your home before you sell it in the future. 
 Education and Amenities
Education and Amenities covers things which are vital to everyday life, whether it’s somewhere to buy groceries and other essentials, a place to enjoy leisure time and for families, an area with schooling which is easy to get to from home
