  • "We have already contacted Sykes (and the owner) about Foxden."

    It was not possible to contact Sykes by phone so an email has been sent. Upon arrival to the property, we found mushrooms (fungus) growing neat the cupboard door in the lounge. Would you stay in a place where fungus is growing on the floor in the lounge? The dust was extreme! This property looked like it had not had visitors for sometime and had certainly not been cleaned prior to occupancy! Cobwebs throughout the place, uncomfortable furniture. A rug in the lounge would make it feel warmer. A dressing table in the bedroom would also be useful. The kitchen is ilequipped. Three pans, and oven trays that all need a good clean. I cleaned the grease off the oven trays before I could start cookin A holiday location spoiled by the accommodation. Certainly not worth the cost.

    We were very disappointed and surprised to receive your comments. We tried to deal with your issues immediately when you contacted us, which was not until the fourth day of your holiday, and we offered to send a cleaner in straight away; our cleaning company had cleaners on standby. However, as you did not reply to our offer, we could not do anything to resolve the issues. The cottage has had visitors throughout August; in fact, the previous guests left on the same day that you arrived and the cottage was cleaned after their departure, so we cannot understand how it could have got into the state you describe in the few hours between their departure and your arrival. Sykes were also surprised to see your comments as they did not receive a telephone call or email from you and knew nothing about your issues until your feedback was posted. Property Owner

    Very central to the village. It was absolutely delightful, comfortable and had everything we needed. We would certainly return for another holiday if we wanted to come back to this area.

  • "We loved our stay at the cottage!"

    Full of character but with all the mod cons you need. Perfectly located with easy access to the center of Sherborne. Loved the garden and the kitchen and the bathroom. Very clean and tidy. We are only sad we didn’t find it sooner. We would definitely recommend it and would definitely stay again.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are delighted to see your lovely comments and to know that you enjoyed your stay at Foxden. Very best wishes. Property Owner

  • "A lovely and interesting property."

    Spotless and obvious care taken to provide a comfortable stay. There are, as described, a lot of steps both inside and outside the property, so with the wooden floor in the top bedroom and the staircases you need to be careful. Owner was very responsive to our query and comments

  • "Foxden is a beautiful cottage just a couple of minutes walk from Sherborne town centre."

    The property has everything we needed for a very comfortable stay and had a great blend of old world feel with modern facilities. We also found the owners were very easy to communicate with. We enjoyed our stay so much, we have already booked our break with them!

This delightful, terraced cottage sits on the main street in Sherborne, West Dorset.

Wonderfully presented over three floors, Foxden is a great escape for families and friends looking to experience this beautiful Dorset location.

Park at the rear of the property and follow the garden path down to the interior.

The kitchen is where the designated chef can dust off those cooking books and relish in some home-cooking, utilising the electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and there’s even a dishwasher to help clean up!

Take comfort in the living room, complete with flagstone flooring and exposed beams, this room boasts a homely character, enhanced by the woodburning stove resting in the chimney breast.

Head up to the first floor, home to a double bed and family bathroom, complete with roll-top bath and hand-held shower.

Continue to the second floor where the master king-size rests, featuring vaulted ceilings and exposed beams.

When you’re ready to explore, take a gentle stroll from this Sherborne cottage in the town centre.

Spend an afternoon browsing the little shops before treating yourselves to a meal in one of the many superb restaurants or visit the ancient abbey and nearby castles.

Other things to add to your itinerary, 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.

Take off to the nearby town of Yeovil, where you can explore the National Trust property of Montacute House or amble in the beautiful Ninesprings country park.

Choose Foxden for your next escape to 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.
