This delightful 300 year old cottage is a short stroll from the centre of Shaftesbury, a historic Saxon town in a stunning hilltop position. In a little terrace in one of the oldest parts of the town, Thetis Cottage balances a welcoming contemporary interior with plenty of period character. The kitchen/dining-room, with original panelled walls, opens out onto a little courtyard and beyond it is an attractive enclosed garden with a lovely patio-area. The first floor bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, and there is a modern shower-room. A secret retreat for grown-ups is on the second floor – a writing/reading-room with views for miles. Shaftesbury has interesting shops, cafes and restaurants and, of course, the famous steeply cobbled Gold Hill.
