Enjoying life at the centre of historic Sherborne

Residential living need not be a worrying prospect; it can be the start of new friendships, comfort, security and enjoyment in life.

St Johns’ House has for many centuries stood at the centre of the historic abbey town of Sherborne. In the beautiful county of Dorset, with its stunning countryside, heritage Jurassic coast and unique buildings, Sherborne is a well-loved town with a warm community spirit.

Cheap Street, which is at the heart of Sherborne, is full of independent shops selling everything from a bar of soap to a country mansion! There are many tea rooms, coffee shops, a library, churches and galleries, and the town is also proud of its seasonal floral displays.

Our beautiful building stands at the entrance to Sherborne Abbey Close and is set within its own courtyard and gardens. St. Johns’ House offers one of the most historically interesting and comfortable residential homes in the area. A chance to live in a stunning building, close to shops, facilities and, above all, the opportunity to enjoy new friendships in a safe, warm and manageable home. Lorraine Hunt
