About the location

Shaftesbury

Poole 27 miles; Bournemouth 31 miles.

One of Dorsetís prettiest and most historic towns, Shaftesbury is perched on a spur of rolling green hills, and the views in all directions are without comparison. Lush green meadows, woodland glades, outstanding architecture and all within walking distance. One of the best vantage points is from Gold Hill (the famous Hovis advert was filmed here) with its quaint, cobbled and very steep street. Visit the ruins of Shaftesbury Abbey (once a place of great pilgrimage) or drive through the stunning countryside of Blackmoor Vale down to the coast at Poole, Bournemouth and Weymouth - all under 40 miles away. A beautiful area, that still carries the flavour of the very best of the English countryside.

The accommodation was very cosy and comfortable. Beautiful views of countryside and wildlife. The owner of the cottage was very friendly and helpful.

Mrs Mccleam, Cramlington, March 2014

The cottage was ideally located for the area we wanted to visit. It was peaceful and the view was fantastic. We enjoyed watching the rabbits playing outside the window.

Mrs Scott, Birmingham, June 2013

A good view and extremely quiet. Pictures of the cottage do not do it justice, it is better than the pictures on the web site!

Mr Howe, Clacton-on-Sea, August 2012

We particularly liked the deer in the field next to the cottage and the fox going by the woods by the field. The buzzard on the nest was in view from the lounge through the French windows, and the walks nearby were nice - the place had peace and quiet at all times.
