We stayed two nights at this bright, contemporary studio, hidden away in a quiet valley about 3km from the centre of Shaftesbury. The location is great, with miles of footpaths and quiet roads winding through the hilly countryside. The friendly owners live in the main part of the house. We liked the 'eco' ethos of the studio, which uses rainwater and little electricity but was still nice and warm!

The studio is immaculate and very well designed. Spent three wonderful days, couple of idyllic walks. The food basket was a welcome treat for breakfast. Would go back in a heart beat given the opportunity.

Management response:

Thank you so much for the lovely feedback. It was a pleasure to have you as guests. Please come again when back in the UK.

We stayed 4 nights at this studio as a base for exploring the nearby historical sites (Stonehenge, Salisbury,Bath,Avebury, etc). We found the studio using our gps and the clear instructions supplied by the owners (as Australians we tried putting in an address but learnt that using the postcode was the way to go). It is situated in a quiet, quaint area about 5 minutes outside Shaftesbury. The hosts are congenial and we felt our privacy...
