The property

A self-contained wing of the owners' house, a former Sherborne Castle estate worker's cottage, believed to date back to 1640, in the attractive village of Thornford, 3 miles from Sherborne in north west Dorset.

This Sherborne cottage has been cleverly renovated and is well furnished, incorporating an inglenook fireplace with a warming wood burning stove in the open plan living area, a cosy double bedroom, and a superb roll-top bath and separate shower cubicle in the first floor bathroom.

This Sherborne cottage is close to open countryside, offering many lovely walks, with the local shop and pub both a short stroll away.

There's even a ˜halt' on the nearby railway, which can conveniently take you to the lovely city of Bath.

From this Sherborne cottage it's a short drive to Sherborne's castles and abbey, as well as the ancient hilltop town of Shaftesbury, the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton, and several National Trust properties.

This Sherborne cottage offers a cosy, romantic village base from which to explore this lovely area, at any time of the year!

About the location

THORNFORD

Sherborne 3 miles.

A most attractive north west Dorset village, Thornford is only 3 miles from the ancient town of Sherborne. Over 20 historic cottages make up the conservation area at the centre of the village, which boasts a pub, local shop and a Post Office, as well as a 'halt' on the railway line linking Weymouth with Bristol. The village is surrounded by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, bursting with lovely rural walks, and just a short drive takes you into Sherborne, well known for its castle and abbey, and where you can browse the array of interesting shops and restaurants. Good transport links ensure that visits further afield to historic Bath, Stourhead, and Salisbury, as well as the stunning Jurassic Coast, are easily made. This really is a great touring base for visiting this lovely area.
