The property

Sherborne 3 miles.

The Donkey Shed is a wonderful property resting within the village of Alweston, on the outskirts of the market town of Sherborne.

This well-presented cottage offers a quaint base for a family looking to explore the area steeped with history, picturesque landscapes and a sheer variety of wildlife.

It comes with three bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, as well as a ground-floor bedroom which is ideal for those with limited mobility.

Look forward to spending your evenings within the contemporary-styled, open-plan living room, benefitting from a fireplace which fills the room with warmth during those chilly winter evenings.

The designated chef will be delighted rustling up an evening meal within the stylish kitchen, housing all the necessities you require to prepare a delicious home-cooked meal before curling up on the plush sofas in front of the TV.

During the warmer months, open up the bi-fold doors to discover an idyllic garden area where you can tuck into your meals upon the patio area whilst enjoying the far-reaching countryside views.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, make your way into the centre of Sherborne where you will find a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants to suit all ages and tastes.

Whilst visiting Sherborne, brush up on the local history by discovering the beautiful 8th century Abbey and the two differing castles.

Within striking distance you will find the Dorset Area of Natural Beauty, where you can explore miles of spectacular landscapes and venture to the South Dorset Ridgeway which overlooks the Jurassic Coast and is steeped with wild plants and wildlife to enjoy.

The Donkey Shed promises a memorable stay within a superb location.

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.
