    We stayed at Garden Cottage in September and thoroughly our stay. Our welcome was both very friendly and informative. The cottage had all the comforts you would ever need as well as being quiet and private. It is surrounded by a lovely peaceful garden and is very centrally located within the beautiful town of Sherbone.The off street parking is also a welcome addition. There are many interesting attractions around Sherborne that make wonderful day trip excursions. In fact the whole area is a very beautifull part of the Country. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here.

The property

A delightful, stone-built, self-contained wing of the owner's 19th century property situated in its own grounds, in the heart of historic Sherborne.

From the charming master bedroom with its lovely oak beams, to the modern fitted kitchen, this well equipped accommodation beautifully combines original features with modern living and offers a great base from which to explore the town and surrounding area.

The spacious conservatory-style sitting room overlooks the shared pretty gardens and patio, providing a great place to relax and unwind.

Spend your days exploring the nearby abbey, Sherborne's two castles, the quaint shops or the great pubs and restaurants on offer, all within easy walking distance, and with Shaftesbury, Salisbury and the Dorset coast just a drive away, this great location has plenty to offer at any time of year.

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.
