Furnished and equipped to a high standard, this light and airy property offers sleek accommodation in a clean, modern style.

This grade II listed, eighteenth century detached cottage adjacent to the owner’s home is set within a beautiful conservation area of Sherborne town. Perfectly placed for exploring the historic town of Sherborne, this lovely home-from-home is comprised of a double en suite bedroom, a modern fitted kitchen and a sitting room with dining area. Well situated to see all this wonderfully diverse region has to offer, Glover’s Cottage is within easy driving distance of a range of attractions including the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton, the house and gardens at Stourhead and the Dorset Heritage Coast.


Glover's Cottage was a perfect spot for us. The apartment is compact but felt surprisingly roomy, and it was very thoughtfully equipped with everything we needed. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bedroom and bath are up 5 stairs from the entry landing, while the living room and kitchen are 6 stairs down, and also open to a patio. The kitchen is tiny--I would not want to cook a large meal there--but it is ingeniously arranged to include everything one needs, and it worked very well for our breakfasts and evening snacks. As others have mentioned, the apartment opens onto a public pay-and-display parking lot, and you do need to pay for parking. However, parking is free between 6 pm and 8 am and we were out most of the day, so the cost was not great, and the apartment was so reasonably priced that we did not mind. The one negative is that the Wi-fi connection is poor. We were only able to connect out on the patio or right near the back door. Sherborne Abbey is a stunning building, and we enjoyed the town, which has great shops and bakeries. We also appreciated the beauty of the immediate area, and the easy access to the places we wanted to visit during our week, including Glastonbury and Wells, Montacute and Barrington Court, the Jurassic Coast, Salisbury and Stonehenge. The apartment is a few steps away from a fine Waitrose supermarket and several good restaurants and pubs. The owners live right next door and were available to help if needed, and they were very friendly and helpful, from beginning to end!

The cottage was well furnished and well situated, a lovely peaceful haven.
