Lovely quiet and tranquil cottage, nicely hidden away with everything you need for a restful and peaceful holiday 990cas (August 2017)
A very quiet cottage, nicely tucked away, with everything that I needed Mrs Slater (July 2017)
Superb accommodation and service. Unfortunately as the music course will move next year ,we will not be re-booking next year. That is unless we visit Sherborne again!!! Mr Temple (July 2017)
i suppose the only down side was having no onsite parking,except meter parking which was very reasonable only £2 8o per day.but you can walk from cottage to find spaces in side streets.but sherborne was great. Mrs Pratt (June 2017)
very central and convenient. Pleasant and helpful owners. Only wished we could have stopped longer. J&B Griffiths. Mrs Griffiths from Barry (October 2016)
It was a lovely little property right in the centre of Sherborne. It was faultless in every respect. Mr Hanson from York (June 2016)
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! Kate23454 (October 2015)
The cottage was well furnished and well situated, a lovely peaceful haven. Mr Packham from Hove (May 2015)
Glovers' Cottage its self was lovely and in a delightful setting, Sherborne is a beautiful town and ideally situated for exploring Dorset. Mrs Stanley from Warwick (September 2014)
Lovely cottage with a friendly owner, could not fault it. Had an easy and relaxing stay, extremely happy. Mrs Buswell from Sherborne (April 2014)
The place was very peaceful and relaxing and the town was lovely. Mrs Murray from Luton (April 2014)
Very kind of the landlady to provide the starter kit - it was a real help! Loved the books, DVDs, audio books available for our use! Great location - shops close by and train station was on a direct line to London. Mrs Breeden from New South Wales (January 2014)
Sherborne is a lovely town with very interesting historical sites. The cottage could not be more convenient to enjoy the town. All the facilities and amenities were first class. Everyone connected with the cottage and the town were both very friendly and helpful. We had a great time. Mr Parsons from Sutton (September 2013)
Very well located cottage close to all amenities and attractions in and around Sherborne. The owner was very helpful and friendly without being obtrusive. All in all we really enjoyed our few days in the area, and would not hesitate to return to the cottage again as it is an excellent base for exploring Dorset and surroundings. Mr Hughes from Wirral (August 2013)
Excellent location. Beautiful, well maintained cottage with everything you need for your stay. Mrs Tuckwood from Nottingham (March 2013)
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. A FlipKey verified reviewer (October 2012)
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. A FlipKey verified reviewer (September 2012)
Location was a perfect touring base with good pub and supermarket within walking distance. Very warm welcome from the owner. Would definitely visit again for a longer period. Mr O'Connell from Feltham (August 2012)
Plenty to do and see in the area and an easy drive to the sea. Mr Ankers from Bury (June 2012)
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. REA_11 (August 2011)
Stylish conversion of this compact cottage. Clean, comfortable, in a central position in the town. Generous provision of food and toiletries. A FlipKey verified reviewer (August 2011)
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. A FlipKey verified reviewer (June 2010)
