My cottage is nestled close to the centre of Shaftesbury in Dorset, near the site of the historic Shaftesbury Abbey, Park Walk with it’s views over the rolling Dorset countryside and Gold Hill - made famous by the much loved 1970s Hovis Bread TV commercial. The cottage makes an excellent base from which to explore the borders of beautiful Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset, where the countryside, walking, cycling and dining out opportunities are fantastic.
Great for couples, friends, colleagues, individual travellers or for a small family.
The space is a characterful little cottage that comprises a double bedroom upstairs with ensuite facilities, plus a cosy single bedroom at ground level that has ensuite facilities too. The single bedroom leads off the kitchen, is really quite small, and is all the better for it! In the double bedroom, there is just enough space to set-up a travel cot as well. Each ensuite has a shower and do not have baths.
A cosy living room with underfloor heating and a log burner plus a bright kitchen complete the piece. Facilities include an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and washer / dryer. There is a small freezer compartment in the fridge plus a range of cooking implements, crockery and glasses. A Smart TV with terrestrial channels and wifi broadband connectivity allow you to keep in touch with the outside world.
A parking space is available at the cottage and it’s perfect for cars. Large vehicles, such as camper vans, will need to be parked in a pay-and-display public car park which is near the town centre and within walking distance - this is as the lane to the cottage is narrow with a few bends.
Finally, a few words of caution… the cottage is cosy and has low ceilings in some areas, so taller guests will need to bear this in mind. Those over 6ft / 1800mm will need to stoop (or adopt suitable protective measures!).
Guests will have the entire house to themselves and can access the house using the key safe.

I’m a practical sort who loves having fun with my family & friends. When I'm not doing that I make glass fused craft, enjoy road cycling, head to the mountains for a spot of skiing and ride the occasional horse.
As a host, I like to make sure that my guests can have the best possible time by sharing local knowledge and supplying locally produced tea, coffee and treats.
