Situated at the end of a long private driveway off Magna Road which runs between Wimborne and Bournemouth, both vehicular and pedestrian gates open onto an extensive driveway with parking and turning which in turn leads to a detached double garage. Beautifully landscaped gardens extend around the property with large lawn area and terraced area where a variety of trees including Oak, Pine, Sycamore and Blue Cedar and a wide selection of shrubs including Magnolia, Camellias, Azaleas, flowering Cherry and many others provide an oasis of colour. A further vegetable/fruit patch can be found having an abundance of raspberries, blackcurrants, redcurrants, strawberries, plums and gooseberries. Immediately adjacent to the garden are two large paddocks, a further paddock and a holding paddock all enclosed with post and rail fencing. The stable yard consists of three good size loose boxes, a fourth stable, carriage room/tack room and a hay barn, all with electric lighting and water supply. Beyond the stable yard there is a wildlife area/orchard with winter pond, suitable to keep ducks and chickens.

Moortown Farm was originally part of the large estate of Canford Manor which was previously owned by Lord and Lady Wimborne. The current owners have lived at the property for the last 23 years.
The property is within easy reach of central Wimborne which offers an excellent range of shopping, educational, recreational and cultural facilities including the Tivoli Theatre/Cinema, Waitrose supermarket and the Minster itself and is conveniently located for the Dorset coastline.
