    “The cottage was as described in the ...”
    The cottage was as described in the advertising, comfortable and cosy, the parking was a bit of a pain and some would find this awkward, having said this ,we did have a lovely week and the people of Sherborne were very friendly. Would book again.

Just a short walk from an abundance of restaurants and interesting shops, this semi-detached Sherborne cottage has been lovingly renovated and furnished to an extremely high standard, cleverly combining lots of original character with modern contemporary convenience.

The open plan ground floor of this Sherborne cottage features a wealth of exposed beams, a charming fireplace with a woodburning stove, a super fitted kitchen and underfloor heating.

Sherborne has lots to offer visitors, with its lovely abbey and castles, whilst a short drive from this Sherborne cottage takes you to Stourhead's stunning house and gardens, historic Shaftesbury, majestic Salisbury Cathedral, or Roman Bath.

About the location

SHERBORNE

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.
