Interaction with Guests
As the hosts, we meet, greet and provide breakfast...otherwise guests are independent.
Sherborne is an exceptional, medieval town with castles, abbey, conduit and ancient market. The shops are generally independent and classy; there are also 7 charity shops,galleries, many cafes and pubs and good restaurants. It also has two sports centres and famous schools. No wonder the town has won awards for its beauty and the main street.
The accommodation is within easy walking distance of the town centre and it has a main line station linking directly to Salisbury, London and the West country going right down to Plymouth. Nearby Yeovil connects you to Bristol and Bath but if you want to visit the county town of Dorchester ( the centre of Hardy country), travel cross country by bus. The Dorset (Jurassic)coast is 3/4 hour away and the Somerset coast about 1 hour off. Sherborne is a convenient place from which to explore Wessex.
Other Things to Note
Because of the outside staircase and the low windows, this accommodation is not suitable for young children. Pets happily stay here though!
No smoking please.
