Wingfield Court is located on the western side of Sherborne town centre within level walking distance of many of the town's amenities. Sherborne is an attractive and historic Abbey town situated on the Dorset/Somerset border with a charming main shopping thoroughfare with national retailers mixed with a variety of small independent shops including an excellent butcher. There is a Waitrose supermarket at the top of the town with a Sainsburys adjacent to the mainline railway station at the bottom. There are several doctors surgeries within the town and a small cottage hospital. As well as the Abbey, there are churches of varying denominations. The railway station has a regular service to London Waterloo. There are plenty of well marked footpaths providing excellent walking on the outskirts of the town and there are golf courses at both Sherborne and the nearby regional centre of Yeovil.
