Go west
As one agent tells me, the ‘West Country is the best country’ and, looking at these properties, it’s tough to disagree

Dorset, £1.5 million

For those looking to dip their toes into the West Country, without fully committing to a long drive should you wish to visit your friends elsewhere in the South, you won’t find much better than Old Cann Rectory in Dorset. The Grade II-listed property is built of local greenstone with a slate roof and the front of the house, with its large bay windows, faces south-west, offering plenty of light and beguiling views over the established gardens. Inside, you’ll find six bedrooms, four bathrooms, and four reception rooms over its three floors. Situated in the heart of Shaftesbury, the house makes the most of terrific views over the Blackmore Vale countryside, as well as offering easy access to cafes, restaurants, a supermarket, and a small hospital.
