Moving to Dorset – Our Favourite Small Towns in the Countryside

There are many reasons why people consider making a change and relocating to a new town in the countryside. It could be because of an upcoming retirement where you no longer need a large house. Or you have a young family, and maybe you’re looking for somewhere with decent schools. Whatever the reason, it’s all about finding something that suits your needs in a place where you can enjoy your free time.

At Johnson’s of Shaftesbury, we relocate thousands of people into Dorset every year from larger cities like London. We always encourage feedback to see why our customers choose our county to live in. For some people, it was necessary to get better value for money which is especially true in comparison to house prices in London or other large cities. The Johnson’s team are confident that you’ll find the perfect home in Dorset where you’ll be able to put down your roots.

Five of the Best Towns to Live in Dorset –

Sherborne – this market town is known for its captivating architecture and stunning buildings, all with plenty of historical importance. Sherborne Abbey hosts events throughout the year, and it welcomes film lovers to its annual Sherborne International Film Festival. With plenty of curio shops and restaurants, Sherborne should be on your house scouting list.

Swanage – the coastal town of Swanage is a much sought-after location in Dorset. This is a family-friendly town that has lots of water sports and other outdoor activities. You can explore the coast with one of the many Jurassic Coast tours or take a relaxing stroll along the promenade. Swanage is also a welcome choice for foodies and people seeking entertainment.

Bournemouth – If you’re looking for somewhere with world-class restaurants and places to drink, then Bournemouth might be for you. This famous town has lots of entertainment and events happening all year round; you’ll always have something to do or see. If you’re seeking excitement in addition to beautiful scenery, then Bournemouth is where it’s at.

Christchurch –. With year-round food, wine, and music festivals, as well as the regatta in August, Christchurch is a vibrant place. It’s traditional old cottages, and rustic coffee shops are all part of its charm, and it’s easy to accustom to the tranquil pace. If you’re looking for something calmer with lots of magnificent landscape, this should perk your interest.

Weymouth – Attention all beach enthusiasts – Weymouth is the place for you. It ranks in the top ten beach resorts in Europe, boasting unspoilt sands and a plethora of seaside activities. With wonderful days out and entertainment night and day, you’ll always find something to do in Weymouth. Not to mention the year-round events and food festivals on offer.

A Range of Removals and Storage Services –

Johnson’s of Shaftesbury has a range of removals and storage services that make it possible to meet everyone’s specifications. Every inquiry we receive goes through an assessment process where we will discuss your relocation in detail. Then, we will be able to determine the volume of your total items, the distance between locations and any other essential information.

For smaller loads and shorter distances, we usually recommend our Man & Van removals service. The man and van vehicles are ideal for manoeuvring minor and rural roads, in addition to areas with higher congestion. Even if you have more items for transport, it can sometimes be more efficient and cheaper to use a man and van service.

Our Home Removals service comes with a more substantial removal’s vehicle. Because of this, it’s usually easier to fit everything in and do one trip. We would suggest this service to anyone with more significant pieces of furniture that wouldn’t fit into a small van. No matter what the contents are, we always match the correct removals service for your requirements.
