Shaftesbury Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5, Gardens, Small Village, Panoramic Views

Clematis Cottage is a delightful detached stone property that dates from around the 1700s which benefits from a more recent extension to provide superb all round accommodation. The cottage retains many of its original features such as the exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace. There are 2 double bedrooms and 1 single bedroom, 1 family bathroom and 1 shower room. It has a living room with dining area, a sitting room with television/DVD and a kitchen/breakfast room with patio doors opening into the garden. A seating area at the top of the garden provides panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. There is also a garage and extra parking. Clematis Cottage welcomes both children and pets.

Bournemouth airport is the closest airport. However, Southampton and Bristol airports are only 45 miles away, and Heathrow airport roughly 90 miles away.

Just had a two night break Clematis cottage wished we could have stayed longer.
The property is in an idyllic setting wonderful views and very peaceful. We couldn't have asked for more...very well equipped, spotless and owner/manager was very helpful.
We ate at The Bennet Semley which is only a 5 min drive away highly recommend it, food staff and locals couldn't fault. Hope to visit again soon.

Clematis Cottage was very clean, well maintained and very well equipped (even to champagne flutes!). It sits in a very quiet narrow country lane, with uninterrupted views of open countryside to the rear.
The owner provided lots of local information and excellent directions. The towns of Shaftsbury and Gillingham are a short drive away. We can recommend the local pub / restaurant The Forester, excellent ale, food and service. If you are looking for a peaceful country break in a lovely old cottage this is ideal and we can thoroughly recommend it. My wife and I would certainly like to return. Our daughters arrived on our second day and we found parking rather tight for two cars at side of property.

Clematis is in a quiet spot with lovely views. Very comfortable, well-equipped, perfect for a relaxing getaway, and only 90 minutes from London.

Very helpful owner, plenty of good walking and eating nearby, would recommend without hesitation.
