Holiday Cottages in Shaftesbury

Shaftesbury Holiday Cottages

Shaftesbury is a sweet little market town in Dorset with a rich history reaching back to Saxon times. It is also known as Dorset's oldest and highest town. You may recognise its iconic landmark Gold Hill: so steep that you might want to pull yourself up using the handrail, but well worth the climb as the view from the top is breath-taking. For a free excursion, walkthrough medieval walled gardens and an orchard to view the remains of  Shaftesbury Abbey, before visiting the Shaftesbury Abbey Museum to learn more about its history. 

Shopaholics will be delighted with Shaftesbury, with its High Street bursting with small, independent shops. Shop like a local and head for the narrow side streets and tucked-away courtyards. There are also plenty of cafes offering both scenic views and traditional Dorset cream teas.
