Quaker Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
The Cottage is a high quality, well-presented holiday home, formerly a Quaker Meeting House, in a quiet conservation area of Sherborne. This romantic property has a king-size double bedroom, and a further single with additional pull-out bad, making it ideal for couples or small families alike. There is a bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Downstairs is an attractive open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and a sitting area with a woodburner. Outside, there is a small graveled front sitting area, and parking can be found in the surrounding roads or local pay and display car parks. With the abbey and castles of Sherborne on the doorstep, and the beautiful Dorset countryside surrounding you, The Cottage makes an ideal base for a restful year-round break.

Set in the midst of stunning, unspoilt countryside, the picturesque buildings, ancient inns and quaint shops of the ancient town of Sherborne, line the banks of the River Yeo. This charming, rural settlement is probably best known for its beautiful abbey and two imposing castles - the newer of which dates back to 1594 and boasts incredible Tudor landscaped gardens. Sherborne is a great place for sightseeing, or simply having an afternoon stroll along the riverbank, though if you're looking for more activities, a short drive will take you the stunning Stourhead house and gardens. The wonderful Dorset heritage Coast is well worth a visit and just across the Somerset border is the fabulous Fleet Air Arm Museum, situated at Yeovilton. With its displays of historic aircraft – including the Concorde – this trip is interesting for aviation enthusiasts and fans of military history.

Explore the fossils and stunning beaches of Dorset's Jurassic Coast, visit historic Sherborne and Shaftesbury, or enjoy the footpaths, country lanes and thatched-roof pubs Dorset offers.

Beautiful quaint Cottage situated in a fantastic position a minute away from the High Street. Lovely soft furnishings straight out of 'Country Life' or 'House Beautiful'. Wonderful area with easy access to so many different attractions.

A lovely place to visit and lots of nearby places to visit. The abbey is quite amazing well worth a visit. Good facilities in Sherborne. A cosy comfortable cottage. The equipment in the cottage was good and the linen of a very good standard.

Great cottage - clean, warm, convenient and a stone's throw from Sherborne High St. Top-class mattress too in main bedroom, had a very pleasant night sleep! Lovely walks out of town into the surrounding countryside. Very easy to book and easy to find! We had a fantastic long weekend at Quakers Cottage!

Proximity to town and places of interest to visit is great and we did stay here before but parking is a real pain especially with children. Inside the cottage is well presented and pretty bedrooms.

A charming and very convenient cottage. Liked the welcoming touches waiting for us.
Mrs Budd

The central location in Sherborne really can't be beat. The cottage was super cosy and really comfortable. Lots of lovely hot water from the excellent shower too. Parking just behind the cottage in a public car park was convenient and really reasonable. The fact that Quaker Cottage was pretty much next to a toy shop, a knitting shop and an artisan bakery made it hugely perfect for all my family!

What a lovely character cottage, just great for the two of us, and the open plan design to keep things light and airy even on a dark and rainy day! We would like to come again in the winter and use the wood burner!

This lovely cottage was perfect in every way. Very well appointed and extremely comfortable. There a a teeny glitch in the bedding and the delightful owner rushed over to sort it out with a basket of fresh muffins and a lovely warm char! The cottage is a perfect base for walking and exploring Sherborne. We were nervous about parking our two cars but managed to do so free in George Lane every day.

We stayed at Quaker Cottage for a week with our daughter and son-in-law. It completely exceeded our expectations. A delightful cottage with lovely furnishings, very comfortable beds, and everything needed for a relaxing holiday. And on the one occasion we needed to ask for help from the manager he came immediately, and cheerfully, to our aid. Sherborne is a charming town, with good shopping, pubs and restaurants (the cottage is behind The George pub, and two minutes walk to Waitrose) and well situated for touring the pretty Dorset countryside. We will definitely stay there again.
August 2013
My mum and I had an excellent week in this rather quaint cottage. It has bags of character and the owners have put some nice pieces of furniture and art work around the place. There is only a very tiny outside space at the front and the property is directly behind a pub. It was quite difficult to find as it is tucked up a little side road. There is no parking and the access is limited. Parking in the long stay carpark at 2.80 per day was not too bad but did mount up over the week. Sherborne is beautiful with lots of shops and cafes - and a stunning abbey.
June 2013
Quaker Cottage is a delightful little cottage, ideally situated in the small town of Sherbourne. We were warmly welcomed by the owner who made sure we had all we needed for a comfortable stay. Everything you could want is on the doorstep including an artisan baker, lovely little shops and fantastic dog friendly pubs. Although it is a dog friendly cottage the front yard is tiny but there are plenty of lovely walks nearby. Would have given 5 stars but parking a bit tricky, a good value council car park very close by.
