Dorchester is a small village of under 10,000 residents, located in the municipality of Thames Centre, where it is the main residential and commercial hub for the area. This is great for those looking to avoid the hustle and busyness of an urban setting while having access to great amenities such as many parks, athletic facilities, a public pool, schools, and more. It is also a short drive away from London, a major city that provides even more accessibility that is uncommon in a less urban area.
