Printers Court is one of the most attractive of the many splendid properties that are found on historic Cheap Street, the main thoroughfare that winds through the centre of Sherborne.  Printers Court was originally built in 1842, although it has a Georgian appearance, and its most distinctive features are a splendid curved window and a balcony that runs the length of the building.  Historic photos show these balconies were very popular on Cheap Street in the 19th Century but today few survive.  Both the splendid window and the balcony belong in their entirety to Flat 3 so you can relax there, enjoying your coffee looking down on the comings and goings below, (including the market on Thursdays and Saturdays) and admiring the splendid buildings up and down Cheap Street.

Printers Court is part of a row of houses known as The Parade as the buildings are set back so Cheap Street can widen as it approaches the market area.  The building has a passageway entry through a distinctive cast iron gateway to the courtyard and entrance at the rear of the property and Flat 3 is located entirely on the first floor after you ascend a flight of stairs.

Flat 3 contains what is probably the most spacious lounge/dining room to be found in any Sherborne apartment, which immediately conveys a very luxurious feel.  With two leather settees, a large dining table that can seat 8 and a large double sofa bed the room still has a very spacious feel.

The kitchen contains and everything you would need and expect from self-catered accommodation: an oven, four-ring hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and a plentiful range of cupboards, cutlery, crockery, etc.  The property is heated by Gas Central heating and the hot water is on demand (included).

The apartment contains a 42” plasma television with Freeview, DVD player, a plentiful collection of DVDs and books.  There is also free WiFi available at the property and we provide a folder of local information, flyers and pamphlets and a selection of books on the local area.

This property sleeps 6 using the large sofa bed, which can be made up if required.  It is a five minute walk to both Sainsbury’s and Coop supermarkets or there are several smaller delicatessens and health food shops located within a few minutes’ walk also.  There is a plentiful array of restaurants and tea/coffee shops in very close proximity to Printers Court and your morning paper is readily available from the town newsagent on the Ground Floor of Printers Court!  

NOTE : Please be aware, the markets set up in Cheap Street immediately below the apartment.  Light sleepers should consider that early morning noise may be an issue to them if sleeping at the front of the apartment.

Parking - On street parting outside the building is available Monday to Saturday from 6.00pm to 9.30am and all day on Sundays.  The long stay car park is a five minute walk away and for arrivals before 5.30pm on a weekday you can park about 70 yards away for unloading and our staff can help you carry your bags to the apartment.
