About Debbie Boyes

We live on the South Coast of England close to Poole Harbour (the second largest natural harbour in the world after Sydney, Australia).

I own a Mortgage and Insurance business and my husband runs a Construction business. We love our home - but we love to travel to other beautiful places too!

Debbie Boyes purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Debbie Boyes chose Shaftesbury

We didn't go out looking to buy a cottage, but when we looked through the window, we knew that she had to be ours!

It was love at first sight!

Corner Cottage was built in around 1790 around the original Pump which provided water to the town of Shaftesbury, so it is a real piece of English history!

When we purchased it, the cottage had not really been touched for nearly 40 years and so we have spent a lot of time, care and money bringing it back to an absolutely beautiful cottage - and as we say, a little bit of history with some quirky touches.

What makes this cottage unique

Newly renovated!

Pillow top mattresses, with lovely bedlinen!

Historic Area.

Walk to the town and restaurants.

Great local pub just down the road.

Farrow and Ball paintwork.

Quirky touches.

Step through the gate and into the peaceful, historic and private gardens of Pump Yard. Corner Cottage, the only white cottage in the quadrangle, is a beautiful late 18th century Grade II listed cottage, near the bottom of the famous Gold Hill in Shaftesbury, Dorset.

Recently renovated, Corner Cottage now combines the "old" - beamed ceilings, window seats and quarry tiles - with the "new" - comfortable pillowtop beds, wifi and a bathroom with a double ended tub and rainwater shower.

Mix this with its own distinct quirky touches, and Corner Cottage will provide you with a truly memorable stay.

Corner Cottage is a comfortable 2 bedroom holiday cottage which sleeps 4 plus a cot.

Looking for a romantic getaway for two, or to celebrate a Birthday, Valentine's Day or Anniversary? Then stay at Corner Cottage and

surprise someone you love with a balloon ride or a spa experience!

Need a break somewhere which is both romantic and child friendly? Just ask and a selection of items is available for our Little Guests.

And if you can't bear to leave you Furry Friend behind, we are also pet friendly!
