Moving from Australia to Dorset

Hi, I am confused... looking to buy in Dorset and not sure what area to move into. Looking for semi rural, good schools I have a 7, 3 and 1 year old.. We would love a local pub and friendly community - could someone advise where they think are the best areas...to look at - would love to back onto a field - have 350,000 pounds to spend.

  • Google the area and spend a little time online. Without actually visiting the area, it is almost impossible to determine whether it would be good for you and your family.

  • I agree with above, it is best to visit the area and spend some time there. You could try to find forums where people are discussing the area. Also send your criteria to estate agents across Dorset to get an idea of what you can afford in which areas. You certainly have picked a beautiful part of this beautiful country.

  • We would suggest that you check out the local Tourism website & check the crime rates for the area. Do some research on the internet – it’s worth calling a few of the agents too to get some advice. Spend some time in the area that you are interested in too – try to get a feel for the place. Good Luck!

  • I think that Bridport area could be good. The schools all have had as far as I know outstanding OFSTED inspections. If you are looking anywhere find out the names of the local schools and google their OFSTED inspection reports.
