Teachers Cottage

A charming period terraced cottage close to the centre of Sherborne

Visit England - Gold Award Visit England - Self Catering - 3 Star Award

Teachers Cottage was in a sorry state when we bought it however it has since undergone a masterful renovation and refurbishment that has resulted in a brand new conversion of a period terrace cottage. Teachers Cottage is located close to Sherborne School and just a few minutes’ walk from the magnificent Abbey and shops on Cheap Street. There are also a number of historic inns and eating options within a five minute walk.

The front door leads into a lovely open plan ground floor with a dining area (with seating for up to 6) and a living area with a three seat sofa and two comfortable armchairs. It then opens onto a Shaker style kitchen full of appliances – four-ring hob, oven, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, microwave and fridge/freezer.

On the first floor is the bathroom and two bedrooms, one double and one with bunk beds. The loft (accessed by a vertical, ship-like ladder out of the double room) has been converted into a mezzanine area overlooking the main bedroom. This provides a perfect reading space or working area with a built-in folding desk and views over Sherborne towards the Abbey – ideal for the busy professional who cannot go on holiday without taking some work along, it can also be used as an additional sleeping area.

The cottage contains a flat-screen television with Freeview, DVD player and a plentiful collection of DVDs and books. Free WiFi is provided and we also provide a folder of local information, flyers and pamphlets and a selection of books on the local area.
