Walled Garden is a recently built private house owned by Gary and Philip with three double bedrooms (two en-suite and one with its own adjoining bathroom) with secure parking. We are in the centre of the old town of Shaftesbury with many varied restaurants in walking distance, and many more within a short drive. We especially welcome gay visitors and have clothing optional sun bathing on the rooftop terrace which looks over the vale to Glastonbury Tor. We have varied places to sit around the garden and in the house. Free high-speed wifi from most areas in the house. Town centre facilities and shopping in walking distance (High Street 200 yards) and Stourhead and Kingston Lacy and Sherborne and Salisbury within half an hour's drive.
