    - Ken, September 2021

    Very shocked by the tone of your negative review, We are a 5 minute drive from the town of Shaftesbury and 1 mile from our village which is a lovely 20 minute walk. Guests enjoy the location as we are a good touring base and a very accessible location. Wondering if you are confusing our property location with somewhere else! With regards to other points, you did mention the rubber seal on the door to my husband who immediately slotted it back in for you. It had simply come loose. We are always here to fix any issues if asked.``We cannot smell a 'stinking sink' and we would have rectified immediately if we had. The kitchen is very new (as can be seen by pictures) and extremely well stocked. If you did not like the tea towels, you were more than welcome to ask for some more. Not sure what is rotten? The property is clean and was only built 5 years ago Sorry you found it generally aggravating! Think you may be talking about a different property somewhere else. The property is on the outside of our village of Semley and is 300 yards from the main road!!!!!??! Property Owner

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.
