Romantic and rustic detached lodge enjoying a secluded location on the owners’ smallholding, surrounded by fields, and yet just one mile from the historic town of Shaftesbury.

One of the oldest and highest towns in England, Shaftesbury is a wonderful place and makes for a peaceful and tranquil retreat. Escape and enjoy that lovely feeling of absolute freedom offered by the wide-open spaces of the English countryside.

Hike up to the top of the lovely Gold Hill, a steep cobbled street crammed with tiny, quaint cottages, and take in the spectacular view across Blackmore Vale. Perfect for couples who want to get away together, wildlife lovers, hikers and true explorers.

Why visit Shaftesbury?

Location is everything and on a holiday in the UK, it’s essential to take advantage of the stunning scenery we have on offer. From this excellent hilltop town, you will be surrounded by fabulous, extensive views over the wonderful rolling countryside throughout your stay.

Things to do in Shaftesbury:

There are small independent shops, delicious cafés and tea shops in Shaftesbury, where you can enjoy a breath of fresh air and a spot of tea and cake. Wander the Park trail, stop by the war memorial and after climbing Gold Hill take a look around the hill’s dedicated museum.

Why stay in a Shaftesbury cottage?

Its high setting and history make it a very desirable location. The views are wonderful and a stay in one of the cottages in Shaftesbury means a daily trip to the tea shop for a lovely lunch. Stop by the museum to view the long history of the area and enjoy wandering the cobbled streets of this nostalgic town.

Three must see things in Shaftesbury:

  • Take an interactive virtual tour of the previously hugely influential Shaftesbury Abbey and Gardens.
  • Climb to the top of Gold Hill for a fantastic view of Blackmore Vale far below.
  • Walk in the footsteps of Thomas Hardy and John Constable in the neighbouring town of Gillingham.
