Sherborne is beautiful and this is an ideal cottage (or is it the Tardis?) to walk into the town or drive to the countryside. Super start-up provisions. We'd have happily stayed longer than a week.
Stylish conversion of this compact cottage. Clean, comfortable, in a central position in the town. Generous provision of food and toiletries.
Our stay at this cottage was very good in almost every way. The cottage was comfortable and clean and the location in the centre of Sherborne was excellent. The owners also organised parking very close to the cottage. The kitchen was a little small and we both banged our heads on the microwave shelf. Also, we had believed that the small patio area was for our use but in fact was being used by the owners on the one occasion we wanted to sit outside. Clarification on this would be useful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would book to stay at the cottage again.
No hassle service, left to our own devices even though next to owners. Fantastic location to Sherborne close by to all amenities and pubs. Very good welcome pack, but would have been nice to know about parking and include parking charges in rental.
Very friendly welcome from owner who gave us all the information we needed especially about Local facilities. Property was amazing as it looked like a tardis from the entrance which was in a car park but we enjoyed watching people's surprised faces when we opened the door in the morning. Immaculate, compact practical with character. Home from home, very cosy. Definitely wish to return as Sherborne is the perfect base for touring Dorset.
Glover's Cottage was a perfect spot for us. The apartment is compact but felt surprisingly roomy, and it was very thoughtfully equipped with everything we needed. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bedroom and bath are up 5 stairs from the entry landing, while the living room and kitchen are 6 stairs down, and also open to a patio. The kitchen is tiny--I would not want to cook a large meal there--but it is ingeniously arranged to include everything one needs, and it worked very well for our breakfasts and evening snacks. As others have mentioned, the apartment opens onto a public pay-and-display parking lot, and you do need to pay for parking. However, parking is free between 6 pm and 8 am and we were out most of the day, so the cost was not great, and the apartment was so reasonably priced that we did not mind. The one negative is that the Wi-fi connection is poor. We were only able to connect out on the patio or right near the back door. Sherborne Abbey is a stunning building, and we enjoyed the town, which has great shops and bakeries. We also appreciated the beauty of the immediate area, and the easy access to the places we wanted to visit during our week, including Glastonbury and Wells, Montacute and Barrington Court, the Jurassic Coast, Salisbury and Stonehenge. The apartment is a few steps away from a fine Waitrose supermarket and several good restaurants and pubs. The owners live right next door and were available to help if needed, and they were very friendly and helpful, from beginning to end!
