Old Red Lion House is located in the heart of Blandford Forum yet in quiet surroundings and with easy access to the countryside and all that Dorset has to offer.

Located on the banks of the river Stour in Dorset, Blandford Forum is considered to be among the best preserved Georgian market towns in the country. Blandford Forum is perfectly located to explore Dorset, either by travelling south to the coast, just 30 minutes drive away, or north towards the Cranbourne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Mendips.

The house has a small walled garden located at the end of the lane where visitors can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet with the sound of the river running not far away.

There are walks a short distance from the house and of course there are a variety of quality shops and places to eat just moments away
