    “What a modern and very clean apartment, in a beautiful area.”

    The welcome pack was generous, with great attention to detail. Facilities were provided outside, to clean our very muddy dog, after amazing walks. Would stay here again!

The property

The Granary comfortably sits as a first floor apartment, close to the pretty Dorset towns of Shaftesbury and Sturminster Newton.

Boasting neutral and homely accommodation for two people, this is an ideal rural retreat for couples to enjoy all-year-round.

Climb the classy external spiral staircase to reach the property, and feel right at home upon arrival as you step into a wonderfully bright, open-plan living area.

Light-filled Velux windows elevate the place, which also comes well-appointed, offering a lovely dining area, an immaculate kitchen and a snug sitting area topped off with a fabulous woodburning stove.

Catch your rest in the splendid double bedroom, a real welcoming layout with the added luxury of a stunning modern en-suite shower room.

From the living area, step out onto a wonderful west-facing sitting area, where you can sit with a glass of wine of an evening and appreciate the far-reaching rural views.

Your four-legged friend can run and play on the enclosed lawn.

Enjoy a number of scenic walks from here such as the magnificent Hill Forts of Hambledon and Hod, avid outdoor enthusiasts can venture through the magnificent Cranborne Chase AONB.

The Granary sits in between the charming towns of Shaftesbury and Sturminster Newton, both with quaint architecture and a choice of superb amenities, both are excellent bases for touring the area.

Stunning Sherborne also rests within driving distance and is sure worth a visit.

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.
