  • “An unexpected find a brilliant place to stay for Pet lovers!”

    We were so lucky to find a place which will accept 4 dogs (3 larger and one little) as we had a last-minute cancellation happen to us elsewhere. Searching our options were so very limited, but this cottage came up and was just perfect. Rich and Shell are great hosts, so lovely and inspirational people ...

    We were so lucky to find a place which will accept 4 dogs (3 larger and one little) as we had a last-minute cancellation happen to us elsewhere. Searching our options were so very limited, but this cottage came up and was just perfect. Rich and Shell are great hosts, so lovely and inspirational people. The cottage itself was comfortable and very clean, and we had a great generous welcome pack on arrival, which even included dog treats for all our dogs. We needn’t have gone shopping until the next day as we had traveled light as we only have a small car. When we always go to new places there is always a slight sense of trepidation, as our Dogs are well behaved but will bark if anyone come too close or they hear other dogs. We were put at our ease by the comments of the hosts as they are basically not going to disturb anyone as the garage opposite is the only place that might hear them and the hosts have their rescued dogs to. The reality was only once or twice a day did they have a bark so nothing to worry about. The place was actually more like ‘Doggie heaven’ as far as our dogs were concerned. They had their enclosed private garden to play in and an odd friend or 2 next door to say hello to. Yes, the property is next to a main road, but the same is true of our home, so there is a little road traffic noise so what. Its more noticeable if the windows open and yes there is occasional traffic throughout the night if you happen to be awake but nothing exceptional. However, the dogs and us slept well, perhaps it was the extra dog walking and traveling as the cottage is well-placed for touring the area. We enjoyed trips out to the coast so the Dogs could run along the beach for 2 of them for their very first time. There were also some beautiful local woodland walks nearby and yes one of them found the only muddy patch and lied in it. We all had a fantastic break and are re-booking as soon as we get some spare time off that isn’t already allocated which sadly will be 2022. We would have stayed another week if we could but work and the fact they had another booking immediately after us, made it no not this time. One of the few holidays when we weren’t glad to be back home again. We will be back and stay again and again and again, as there are so many things to do in the commutable area both near and withing an hour and a half’s drive. For genuine real dog people book with confidence.

About the location

SHAFTESBURY

Salisbury 21 miles; Bath 30 miles.

One of Dorset’s 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 and outstanding architecture are all within a short walk. One of the best vantage points is from Gold Hill (Ridley Scott's famous Hovis advert was filmed here) with its quaint, cobbled and very steep street. Visit the ruins of Shaftesbury Abbey (a place of great pilgrimage from the 11th century) or navigate the intricate and ancient lanes. Bath, Salisbury and Sherborne are all under an hour away, or drive through the stunning countryside of Blackmoor Vale down to the coast at Poole, Bournemouth and Weymouth. A beautiful area, that still carries the flavour of the very best of the English countryside.
