    “Great central location.”

The property

Enjoying a central position within the bustling town of Sherborne and overlooking the famous landmark of the 8th century Abbey is this first-floor apartment, 1 Abbey Court.

This charming dwelling is perfect for families in pursuit of exploring this historical town and venturing further afield to the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Enter 1 Abbey Court and head into the galley-style kitchen, containing an electric oven and hob, a microwave and a fridge with icebox, allowing you to cater for yourself for the duration of your stay, in addition to a dishwasher and a washing machine to serve as a helping hand.

Delight in your home-cooked dish at the dining table, which is placed within the sitting room, where you can tuck in whilst admiring the view of the Abbey.

The sitting area, boasts a plush seating arrangement, perfect for tuning into the TV for a family film night or simply soaking up the surrounding views.

Continue down the hallway to find two bedrooms, comprising of a double with en-suite and a twin bedroom, both boasting a contemporary interior design, plenty of storage and wonderful views to wake up to each morning.

Explore your surrounding further by meandering around the winding streets of Sherborne, littered with a wide range of individually-owned shop and boutiques, accompanied by an array of tearooms, pubs, bistros and a la carte restaurants, offering something to suit all tastes.

Unravel the town’s history by paying a visit to the Abbey Church with its stone, fan-vaulted ceiling, and be sure to explore the Capability Brown gardens at Sherborne New Castle before heading to the contrasting Sherborne Old Castle, a 12th century ruin which once withstood two sieges during the Civil War.

Other things to do whilst visiting the town, include the Vroom Room, an interactive garage and mini road system, which is great for those visiting with young children and the nearby Fleet Air Arm Museum in Yeovilton promises a wonderful day out.

Venture to the nearby town of Yeovil and look forward to exploring the National Trust property of Montacute House, home to Tudor art in its Long Gallery or enjoy gentle strolls in the country park of Ninesprings.

Alternatively, travel further afield by train to the Georgian city of Bath or the town of Dorchester, the birth place of Thomas Hardy.

If you fancy a day by the seaside, the Dorset Coast is within easy reach too, where you can enjoy the golden sands in Weymouth or go fossil-hunting on the Jurassic Coast.

Make 1 Abbey Court for next base for exploring this part of Dorset.

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.
