The place

Thanks to loving restoration, you can easily picture Eastbury Cottage as it was in the 17th century, with carriages rattling past the front door. There wouldn’t have been a hot tub back then, or a roll top bath in the bedroom, but that and other modern touches are very welcome additions. The French doors to the lovely little courtyard mean you can join the whole space up when the weather’s warm and it’s all walled off, so the dog can happily be left to snuffle in the corners after they’ve rummaged in their welcome pack and “read” their welcome letter.

In the neighbourhood

  • There are two castles in Sherborne – the “old” one, a romantic 12th-century ruin, and the “new” one, built by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1594. Both are good for a scenic wander
  • The town centre and high street are both lovely, with lots of independent retailers like Winstone’s bookshop and places for coffee, cake or lunch
  • Chesil beach and the famous Durdle Door are under an hour away
  • Abottsbury sub tropical gardens is a lovely place for a stroll, although dogs need to be kept on a lead
  • Shaftesbury is a beautiful town to spend an hour two wandering in and for those of a certain generation, there’s a big hill that’ll have you humming Dvorak and craving bread
  • The White Hart, The Half Moon, and a couple of other dog-friendly pubs are walkable if you don’t fancy cooking or need a refreshing pint
