Very friendly welcome from owner who gave us all the information we needed especially about Local facilities. Property was amazing as it looked like a tardis from the entrance which was in a car park but we enjoyed watching people's surprised faces when we opened the door in the morning. Immaculate, compact practical with character. Home from home, very cosy. Definitely wish to return as Sherborne is the perfect base for touring Dorset.

No hassle service, left to our own devices even though next to owners. Fantastic location to Sherborne close by to all amenities and pubs. Very good welcome pack, but would have been nice to know about parking and include parking charges in rental.

Our stay at this cottage was very good in almost every way. The cottage was comfortable and clean and the location in the centre of Sherborne was excellent. The owners also organised parking very close to the cottage.
The kitchen was a little small and we both banged our heads on the microwave shelf. Also, we had believed that the small patio area was for our use but in fact was being used by the owners on the one occasion we wanted to sit outside. Clarification on this would be useful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would book to stay at the cottage again.
