The property

Abbotts Cottage is a delightful cottage, located in the Stour Provost conservation area.

The cottage has been recently refurbished and extended in a contemporary style, though it still manages to retain its period charm, of which it has plenty, with its traditional stone walls and narrow staircase. The moment you walk through the garden gate you will be able to appreciate the owner's obvious love of gardening and this beautiful cottage garden (and its produce) is yours to enjoy.

Perfect for a couple or family with very young children, it's a snug and cosy place to retreat to lying as it does on a quiet country lane, just four miles from Shaftesbury.

If you don't fancy venturing too far, you'll find the private patio and garden a wonderful place to enjoy a meal or a glass of something nice during the summer months. However, please be warned......this is probably one of our most romantic cottages, with no less than five proposals of marriage here in the last few years!!

About the location


Salisbury 21 miles; Bath 30 miles.

One of Dorset’s prettiest and most historic towns, Shaftesbury is perched on a spur of rolling green hills, and the views in all directions are without comparison. Lush green meadows, woodland glades and outstanding architecture are all within a short walk. One of the best vantage points is from Gold Hill (Ridley Scott's famous Hovis advert was filmed here) with its quaint, cobbled and very steep street. Visit the ruins of Shaftesbury Abbey (a place of great pilgrimage from the 11th century) or navigate the intricate and ancient lanes. Bath, Salisbury and Sherborne are all under an hour away, or drive through the stunning countryside of Blackmoor Vale down to the coast at Poole, Bournemouth and Weymouth. A beautiful area, that still carries the flavour of the very best of the English countryside.

Note: Due to the nature of this property, please take care as there are low beams, doorways and a steep spiral staircase with no hand rail.
Pet charge £25 per pet per week
Please note second bedroom is a dressing room with a single chair bed only suitable for a child or small adult.
