Marnhull is one of the largest villages in England and has a thriving community life with a primary school, three churches, two inns, doctors' surgery and dispensary. There are numerous clubs and societies which are based in the village and the nearby town of Sturminster Newton also boasts an active community centre providing a range of cultural and educational facilities. Marnhull is celebrated in Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbevilles as Marlot and the views from the property and around the village will leave you in no doubt as to why the Blackmore Vale was so close to his heart.
Communication: There is a mainline train service to London Waterloo and the West Country approximately 6 miles away in Gillingham. London can be reached by car via the A303/M3 link. There are also good road links to the larger conurbations of Poole,Bournemouth and the Jurassic coastline.

Numerous clubs and societies are available within the village including an active Tennis Club, Cricket Club and Village Hall. Most tastes are however catered for in the surrounding area.
