Yeovil 6 miles.
The ancient town of Sherborne lies on the delightful banks of the River Yeo set amidst glorious unspoilt countryside and boasts many picturesque buildings, ancient Inns and quaint shops. Probably best known for its beautiful abbey and two stunning castles, one of which is relatively “new”, only dating back to 1594 and boasting superbly landscaped gardens, Sherborne makes an ideal place for a day of sightseeing or a quiet afternoon stroll. A short drive will take you to the stunning house and gardens at Stourhead and the sublime Dorset Heritage Coast, whilst just across the border in Somerset is the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton, offering stunning displays of historic aircraft, including Concorde. A fantastic location for all the family.

Location was ideal just 2 minutes walk into the town of Sherborne. A good base to discover Dorset and beyond.

Cottage very conveniently located for walking in Sherborne itself. Good off road parking for the car. Cottage very comfortable, clean and well appointed, The owners are particularly welcoming and helpful. Very quiet, private and peaceful considering location is almost in the middle of town. Certainly a cottage to recommend both for the shorter and longer stay. My wife and I were very satisfied with the Garden Cottage.

The Queen came to Sherborne while I was there! There's a great variety of historic and picturesque places to visit so it's difficult to get bored. The cottage is handily placed for a short walk into the town and its historic places of interest.
