Green meadows, woodland glades and outstanding architecture are all within a short walk.
Whether you are planning a romantic escape for two, or just some time away from it all, Stable Cottage is your own little haven to return to.
The interior comprises an open-plan living area, divided between a comfy lounge with neutral seating, and a contemporary kitchen which includes a small breakfast bar for those early morning cups of tea.
This soothing fresh white feel continues round to the king-size bedroom, coordinated with bedside tables, a mirror and a chest of drawers for added effect.
Nearby, discover the classic shower room designed to a standard of quality, providing somewhere for you get ready in style any time of day.
On a nice afternoon, this cottage draws in the sun, and luckily you can relax on the outdoor furniture to be at one with it all.
There is also a picnic table should you wish to enjoy refreshments, perhaps host a communal barbecue as you take in the wonderful location.
There is always something to do in Shaftesbury; craft and antique fairs, flower and music festivals, farmers’ markets, theatre and arts exhibitions to name but a few.
Should you tire of the town itself, venture out to explore the scenic Blackmore Vale, Thomas Hardy's 'Vale of the Little Dairies', which is dotted with thatched cottage villages and sparkling chalk streams.
Alternatively, explore a little further afield to ancient Sherborne with its castles and abbey, and beautiful gardens.
The Dorset Jurassic Coast is not to be missed.

About the location
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.
