Find cottages in Sherborne

On the northern slopes of the beautiful Yeo Valley, surrounded by gorgeous green pastures and wooded hills, lies the town of Sherbourne.

Located in the North West of Dorset and on the border of Somerset, this charming town is one of England’s most picturesque. It’s the ideal destination for a family holiday, a getaway with friends or a romantic sojourn for couples, as it offers a wealth of historical attractions, child friendly activities and outdoor pursuits.

The town has a number of buildings of historical interest, and the golden coloured Sherbourne Abbey, built in 705 as a Saxon cathedral, is one of the biggest architectural attractions. Sherbourne Castle is an iconic building and there are actually two castles within the town. The ruins of the original castle, built in the 12th Century, are found in the grounds of the existing castle, and the ‘new’ castle, built by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1594, is a popular destination for anyone wishing to immerse themselves in the history of the region, relax by the stunning lake or wander through the lovely gardens.

The Almshouse is also a town institution and this historic building, built between 1440-1445, is open to those who wish to view a well preserved triptych in the chapel, visit the original dining room and view traditional uniforms from several centuries ago. The Sherbourne Steam and water wheel and the Conduit are both important historical sites, and visitors who wish to learn more about these ancient structures and the rich heritage of the town can visit the Sherbourne Museum, located in a building once used as an almonry and gatehouse for the Benedictine Monastery.

Sherbourne offers plenty of activities for those who love being outdoors, and adults and children alike will enjoy exploring the spectacular surrounding valleys and countryside, as well as fishing or boating in the River Yeo.

Come and discover a small town with huge charm; search for Sherbourne holiday cottages and book an unforgettable Dorset getaway.
