Property description


The village of Chaldon Herring (also known as East Chaldon) is situated just a short distance inland from the famous Jurassic Coastline with its World Heritage Status.

In the village is the popular Sailors Return public house and about a mile away is the larger village of Winfrith Newburgh with its shop, pub, post office and school.

The village lies approximately equidistant between the County town of Dorchester and the Saxon town of Wareham, both of which have an excellent range of facilities, including shops, schools, restaurants, pubs and cinemas, as well as mainline railway stations to London Waterloo.

Slightly further afield is the coastal town of Weymouth with its award winning sandy beach and a further range of facilities.


Orchard House has attractive stone elevations under a thatched roof and was constructed in 2004 and provides spacious well appointed accommodation arranged over two floors.

The house is situated in an attractive mature plot extending to just under one acre with nice views over open farmland and situated at the top of a track unsuitable for passing traffic which provides easy access to the sea and Jurassic coastal walks.

Internally the house is in extremely good order and of particular note is the large double height space in the entrance hall with galleried landing, around which the main reception rooms are situated. Also on the ground floor is a spacious drawing room with adjacent garden room overlooking open countryside, well appointed kitchen, dining room and a study.

The attractive gardens at Orchard House extend to approximately one acre and are accessed from the lane via a private drive which leads to a gravelled area of parking and a double garage. Orchard House was built as a replacement dwelling, the previous property having been demolished and therefore whilst being just ten years old, the gardens themselves are attractively landscaped with an excellent range of mature trees, shrubs and plants. The situation backing onto open farmland allows for distant views from the house and garden.

From Dorchester or Wareham, proceed on the A352 towards Chaldon Herring taking the access signposted towards the Sailors Return public house. Proceed past the pub on the right hand side and bear left past the green, taking the next turning right into Chydyok Road. Proceed along the road for approximately 200 yards and Orchard House will be found on the left hand side.
