Additional Location Information

A beautiful old town situated 700 feet up in Thomas Hardy's 'Vale of little Daires'. Shaftesbury dates from the time before Alfred the Great and flourished when he established the Abbey. The massive walls opposite Updown Cottage date from the days of the Abbey and have seen centuries of pilgrims and latter day tourists pass over Gold Hill's cobbles.
The spectacular views from the cottage stretch over miles of glorious English countryside and change with the weather and seasons, offering a constantly fascinating outlook.
Shaftesbury is ideally situated for exploring the whole of the beautiful west country of England with its castles, coasts, cathedrals & stunning countryside.
