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 owners were wonderful, kind, thoughtful, generous and helpful. The garden was perfectly dog proof. The cottage was comfortable and clean. The cottage is well situated for enjoying Dorset and all it has to offer.

The welcome we had was amazing, the owners could not have been more helpful and friendly. Noting was too much trouble, they were always warm and chatty. An excellent base for exploring a lovely part of the world.
