About Us

Castleman Estate Agents are a Dorset based estate agent located in the picturesque market town of Verwood. We offer a range of property services for buyers, sellers and landlords, as well as mortgage and valuation services.

Our business was named after the Castleman trailway, one of Dorset’s gentlest way-marked, walking, cycling and horse riding routes. This 16.5 mile (26.5 kilometres) trailway follows much of the old Southampton to Dorchester railway line. The trailway takes you through some of East Dorset’s stunning landscape whilst also connecting a string of settlements between Ringwood and Poole. The trailway runs through the area in which we conduct our business and we have all spent time with our children enjoying this route.
