Boutique Cottages in Sherborne

One of the prettiest towns in the UK, Sherborne is drenched in history and surrounded by a verdant tapestry of sprawling fields and hummocky hills. Once a thriving medieval hub, this market town is peppered with historic buildings which act as captivating portals to the area’s fascinating yesteryears and sit alongside a mishmash of architectural styles. From its world-famous schools to its 12th century castles, and from its art galleries to its numerous independent boutiques, it is one of Dorset’s best kept secrets and the ideal destination for a well-deserved retreat, whatever the occasion.

Sitting right on the border of West Dorset and South Somerset on the old London Road, Sherborne combines history, culture, activity and entertainment. Delve into the scenery surrounding the mellow-stoned walls of the town and indulge in drawn-out walks in jaw-dropping countryside. Another day, explore the castle commissioned by Sir Walter Raleigh and with grounds later designed by Capability Brown, before stopping to refuel in one of the area’s excellent eateries. Tired and content, return to your luxury self-catering cottage ready to put your feet up.
