About the location


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.

Very kind of the landlady to provide the starter kit - it was a real help! Loved the books, DVDs, audio books available for our use! Great location - shops close by and train station was on a direct line to London.

Mrs Breeden, New South Wales, January 2014

Sherborne is a lovely town with very interesting historical sites. The cottage could not be more convenient to enjoy the town. All the facilities and amenities were first class. Everyone connected with the cottage and the town were both very friendly and helpful. We had a great time.

Mr Parsons, Sutton, September 2013

Very well located cottage close to all amenities and attractions in and around Sherborne. The owner was very helpful and friendly without being obtrusive. All in all we really enjoyed our few days in the area, and would not hesitate to return to the cottage again as it is an excellent base for exploring Dorset and surroundings.

Mr Hughes, Wirral, August 2013

Excellent location. Beautiful, well maintained cottage with everything you need for your stay.
