Welcome to Charborough Estate in the heart of Dorset
Charborough is a traditional rural estate located in South Dorset, close to the towns of Wareham, Blandford Forum and Wimborne Minster. First recorded in the Doomsday Book, Charborough has a rich and colourful history and is now host to an increasingly wide range of activity.
Parts of the estate stretch from Wareham and the edge of the Isle of Purbeck to the south up to the River Stour to the north. Road access is good with both the A31 trunk road and the A35 passing through the property. Enterprises range from long established agricultural and forestry businesses to significant residential, agricultural, commercial and sporting lettings, public events, tourist attractions and film locations.
The Highwood Garden, containing a superb collection of rhododendrons and azaleas in a woodland setting, is opened for a number of days each Spring in aid of local and national charities.
