The property is situated on the edge of the small rural village of Todber. The nearby larger village of Marnhull has an excellent range of facilities including a post office, shops, doctors' surgery, inns, churches and Church of England and Roman Catholic primary schools.

There is a mainline railway station at Gillingham with services to London (Waterloo) and the West Country whilst the local road network links with the A30, A350 and A303 giving good access to the other major towns in the region as well as London and the motorway network. Todber is surrounded by the lovely gently rolling countryside of the Blackmore Vale ideal for various rural pursuits such as walking, cycling, fishing and riding.
