Charlton Marshall is a small village situated just 2 miles from Blandford Forum built up around the A350 road, the village offers convenient commutes to Poole, Bournemouth, Dorchester and Salisbury. According to the 2011 census the village is made up of 513 dwellings and had a population at that time of 1156, although the village has seen, and continues to see new building developments so has grown in size since 2011.

If you are interested in learning more about the history of the village, the parish council have lots of information on their website.

Sadly the village shop and post office closed several years ago, however, the village still retains its village pub, the Charlton Inn. Running almost perpendicular to the A350 is the remains of a section of the old Somerset and Dorset railway, now forming part of the Dorset Trailway, this provides a great place for walking, or cycling, and provides easy links to Spetisbury & Blandford (infact you can follow the trailway from Charlton Marshall approximately 12 miles to Sturminster Newton.)

The nearest primary school is in the neighbouring village of Spetisbury.

Looking towards the property market in the village, the village has a good mix of modern and older housing, a small number of properties in the village benefit from river frontage. The village has a reasonable number of bungalows mainly concentrated in the 1960's developments of Meadow Road and May Grove, but also found dotted around other locations in the village including Cereleton Park and Charlton Mead. 

Given the size of the village there is normally a reasonable volume of houses available for sale, and systematic with the general areas, rental opportunities in the village are more limited. There are no estate agents with offices in Charlton Marshall, most people tend to use agents from Blandford or Wimborne to market their properties.
