Sherborne Cottages

Just Show Me Sherborne Cottages

Straddling the Dorset/Somerset border amid lush valleys and tree-topped hills, our Sherborne holiday cottages are the perfect rural escape.

Think charming, narrow streets brimming with delightful, medieval buildings. This town is made for browsing and shopping, with all kinds of tempting goods on offer from handmade jewellery and clothing to fine art and antiques. It's also a fantastic place to stock your Sherborne cottage larder, thanks to a family butcher, bakery, delis, twice-weekly market, monthly farmers' market - even locally produced table and sparkling wines from the Sherborne Castle Estate.

Amazing architecture near your Sherborne cottage

Make a beeline for the Abbey, looming high above the honey-coloured town. Admire its spectacular fan vaulting and stained glass windows, and look out for the wonderful 15th Century Almshouse nestling in its shadow. Next stop the 'Old' Castle, with its long and chequered history and the 'New' Castle, built by Raleigh and featuring a fine collection of art, china and furniture.

See a wilder side of Sherborne fossil hunting in the Jurassic cliff faces of Quarr Nature Reserve. Go exploring on foot or in the saddle along miles of way-marked trails weaving their way across glorious countryside. Or enjoy a picnic in the Pageant or Paddock Gardens.

Annual events range from country carnivals and vintage car rallies to antique fairs and lakeside Guy Fawkes' celebrations. Local daytrips, meanwhile, include Fleet Air Museum, Haynes Motor Museum, Cadbury Castle, Sandford Orcas Manor and the Cerne Abbas Giant.

Come evening, choose from a great selection of pubs and restaurants with award-winning menus; then relax in your cosy Sherborne cottage!
