    The cottage was well decorated and clean, but a few issues for us was the bed was very firm, we needed to put the duvet on the mattress to sleep,none of the chairs were comfortable, and you had to keep stepping up and down to move from the kitchen to the lounge to the bedroom no good for older people,more for a younger couple, saying that a nice place,quiet and good for walkes

    We are glad your enjoyed your stay with us. The cottage has one step going from the kitchen to the living room and another step out of the living room into the bedroom and bathroom. This is in the description of the property as we like guests to know exactly what they are booking. There is one sofa in the living room which is 3 years old and is in good working order. We have never had any complaints about it before so I am sorry you did not find it comfortable. Other than that, there is only a wide leather armchair in the corner of the room which was new 2 years ago. Beds are very personal. Some people like soft beds and others like hard so I am sorry the bed was not to your personal liking. Again, I have had no comments before about the bed and we have checked it to ensure that it is in good condition. Owner relations

About the location

SHAFTESBURY

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.

  • Winter
  • Off-season
  • Last minute
