Stock Gaylard Estate is a small traditional country estate just over 4 miles from Sturminster Newton and 8 miles from Sherborne in Dorset.
The estate is approximately 1800 acres with around 300 acres of predominantly oak woodland, 80 acres of common land and an enclosed 80-acre deer park with a small lake.
Over the last couple of hundred years the estate has been used for country sports and the hedgerows and woodlands preserved for that purpose. The result is an unspoilt environment that encompasses modern dairy farming with a number of Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

Lovely Local Area, Recommend it
We visited the house for a guided tour. Andrew was an amusing and knowledgeable host and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The house and it’s church are small but the local history is very interesting.
