Named after the family that lived here for four generations, Abbotts Cottage is a beautifully appointed cottage, perfect for two people and quietly situated along a winding country lane in the parish of Stour Provost, 3½ miles from Gillingham (main line railway station to London) and 4 miles from the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury. <BR><BR>The west end of the cottage has recently been completely refurbished and harmoniously extended to provide a self-catering cottage to a particularly high specification. The accommodation is a contrast of old and new; the original part – sitting room and both bedrooms – is simple, unfussy yet full of charm, while the extension, comprising a light, spacious and very well equipped dining room, leading out to the garden, is contemporary in style with a polished, limestone floor, honed granite...

We enjoyed our stay very much in this cosy and very comfortable cottage. The modern kitchen is very well-equipped with everything you need for preparing hot and cold meals. The dining area with the wonderful view of the patio and garden is very light and pleasant. It's a real home from home. Anabel is a very kind and helpful landlady....

We booked this accommodation on the day we wanted our getaway to start. The booking experience was great - Thank you. The Cottage is wonderful and had everything we needed for our stay. It really was a home from home. It's comfy, cosy, peaceful and a lovely place to be. We didn't want to leave after our long weekend stay....
