Sleeping three people across a king-sized double bedroom and a single bed on the light, spacious landing, this is perfect for a romantic getaway, or a young family. Situated in the heart of historic Sherborne, this self-contained, stone-built wing of the owner's nineteenth century property is a wonderful location from which to explore all Dorset and Somerset have to offer. With a bright, modern living space, the property offers a modern, fitted kitchen and conservatory with sitting and dining areas. With the town centre a short walk away, and Shaftesbury, Salisbury and the Dorset Coast within easy driving distance, this great property is a w...onderful place to spend a fortnight, no matter what the time of year.

Region: Explore the fossils and stunning beaches of Dorset's Jurassic Coast, visit historic Sherborne and Shaftesbury, or enjoy the footpaths, country lanes and thatched-roof pubs Dorset offers.
Town: Set in the midst of stunning, unspoilt countryside, the picturesque buildings, ancient inns and quaint shops of the ancient town of Sherborne, line the banks of the River Yeo. This charming, rural settlement is probably best known for its beautiful abbey and two imposing castles - the newer of which dates back to 1594 and boasts incredible Tudor landscaped gardens. Sherborne is a great place for sightseeing, or simply having an afternoon stroll along the riverbank, though if you're looking for more activities, a short drive will take you the stunning Stourhead house and gardens. The wonderful Dorset heritage Coast is well worth a visit and just across the Somerset border is the fabulous Fleet Air Arm Museum, situated at Yeovilton. With its displays of historic aircraft â including the Concorde â this trip is interesting for aviation enthusiasts and fans of military history.

We stayed at Garden Cottage in September and thoroughly our stay. Our welcome was both very friendly and informative.
The cottage had all the comforts you would ever need as well as being quiet and private. It is surrounded by a lovely peaceful garden and is very centrally located within the beautiful town of Sherbone.The off street parking is also a welcome addition.
There are many interesting attractions around Sherborne that make wonderful day trip excursions. In fact the whole area is a very beautifull part of the Country.
We would thoroughly recommend a stay here.

A lovely quiet garden setting located in the heart of Sherborne where shopping, cafes/restaurants, pubs, buses, trains are all within easy walking distance, the car being safely parked, at no expense, in the cottage owners driveway. A spacious comfortable, private and well appointed private accomodation which backs onto a lovely flower garden and lawns.Sherbourne itself is a lovely location a good way away from crowded motorways but very convenient for travel to London, Bristol, Exeter and the South Coast.
Hosts are very charming and helpful.
Notwithstanding the fact the weather was pretty appalling for most of our stay, we had an excellent four weeks stay.
We would recommend both Sherborne and Garden Cottage to any visitor.

My husband and I had a very warm welcome from the owners who made us feel at home straight away. Lovely sitting area looking over the beautiful gardens; kitchen had all the necessary equipment we needed. A lovely spacious bathroom with a very good shower. Bedrooms were very suitable with enough space for clothes and very important indeed, the beds were to die for, being very comfortable ensuring a good night's sleep.
The town of Sherbourne was very quaint indeed with some lovely shops and cafes and the Minster was incredibly beautiful. An excellent superstore was to be found which provided all the necessary items one needed.
An excellent base to tour all of the Dorset countryside and beeches. A very enjoyable stay and especially so when we received a visit from 'Bob' the cat, who was adorable.

The owners were very friendly and provided many thoughtful extra touches such as flowers and a bottle of wine on arrival. The cottage was well-equipped and comfortable set in a lovely garden. Two minutes walk from the abbey, shops etc. Quiet and peaceful.

Charmingly developed from an old add-on to the main Georgian house its main charm lies in the living room being in a huge conservatory which extends into the rear patio part of the garden:so lots of light.
The essential facilities, bedroom, shower room and kitchen are comfortable and well equiped. Our hosts were simply the best!!
