Wonderfully comfortable, cosy and welcoming - we have stayed twice, and look forward very much to returning one day.
Sally was enormously helpful, and very patient with me when I got in a muddle over dates - she could not have done more.
spacious, comfortable, excellent location
Thanks for staying with us!
Berber cottage - the cottage was delightful and thoughtfully equipped. Would definitely recommend!
The rental experience was straightforward and easy. Sally answered any queries promptly. Shaftesbury is lovely, a really pretty town set in amazing countryside. However we spent a lot of time driving south ( which is quite time consuming) so would probably base ourselves nearer the coast in the future.
Lovely cottage, good location
We stayed for a week over Christmas. Lovely cottage, decorated beautifully and very clean. Very thoughtful welcome gifts were an unexpected surprise!! Has all the amenities that you'd need and the parking space is very handy. The location in the centre of Shaftesbury is very convenient for shops, pubs and restaurants. Some lovely walks nearby, recommend Fontmell Down.
Four stars instead of five only because of the single glazing that makes traffic noise and people very loud sometimes. Neighbor with dogs was also somewhat disruptive, but overall these minor distrubances did not detract from a wonderful stay, thanks!
We are glad you had a good stay - it's a central location and so part of the fabric of the saxon town. Sorry to hear you were disturbed (I think Christmas festivities may have been the cause...)
Happy New Year
Cosy Cottage in Central Location
Lovely cottage which is very close to the town centre, with the added bonus of a parking space. We had a lovely few days with amazing weather and would heartily recommend Shaftesbury as a base from which to explore the area. One comment - would suggest that the kitchen lighting be improved as it was a little dull for cooking in the evening.
Thanks for the tip - we will look into getting some more lighting in there.
Glad you had a good stay.
Spotless, pretty, comfortable, cosy and ideal for us.
