This delightful 300 year old terraced cottage is a short stroll from the centre of Shaftesbury, a historic Saxon town in a stunning hilltop position. Thetis Cottage cleverly balances a very welcoming contemporary interior with plenty of period character. The kitchen/dining-room, with original panelled walls, opens out onto a pretty little courtyard and beyond it, over a little pathway, is the main garden. The first floor bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and there is a brand new shower-room (the stairs in this period cottage are steep, please take care). Shaftesbury has a great range of independent shops, cafes and restaurants and of course the famous Gold Hill as featured in those original Hovis adverts! The surrounding area is beautiful too, with locally named Zig Zag Hill – just as the name implies – leading up to the incredible panoramic views back towards Shaftesbury and over the Dorset and Wiltshire countryside. Visit Old Wardour Castle, Sherborne, Salisbury and the National Trust gardens at Stourhead – there is something for all within very easy reach. Please note that the changeover times are 4pm on arrival and 10am on departure.
