Further details

Please be aware that the Studio is on the ground floor of a 2-storey house. There is one small and a very friendly and inquisitive cat living at the property. We also own a Pug. While we restrict the movement of the Pug depending on visitors preference (some guest love interacting with William), we cannot control the movements of the cat. If you are interested in our Studio and would like to bring a dog, please contact us, so we can tell you more about our policy for pets.

The West Country region

Located in North Dorset on the Dorset/Wiltshire border, the Studio Retreat is ideally located for great days out to Sherborne Castle, Wardour Castle, Old Sarum Castle, Stourhead Gardens, Stonehenge and much more.

The coast is a 50-60 min drive away with the fabulous beaches of the World Heritage Coast, such as Studland Bay, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Chesil Beach. Salisbury with its exquisite cathedral is 35 minutes drive, and historic Bath, featuring the Roman Baths for those who want to explore the history of the town and Thermae Bath Spa for those who want to relax and unwind in Britain's only thermal water spa.


Shaftesbury, in North Dorset on the Dorset/Wiltshire border, is one of the oldest and highest towns in England and is surrounded by some of the most beautiful Dorset countryside. The town has fine historical buildings and, of course, the famous Gold Hill, known nationwide (and beyond) for the 1973 Hovis Bread advertisement by the director Ridley Scott.

The Studio is only a 5 minute drive east of Shaftesbury, or a 35 minute walk on country lanes through beautiful ancient woodland. Most visitors come here by car, but it is possible to stay here and get around by foot or bicycle (just remember that this is quite a hilly area). If your preferred form of transport is by train, we'll be happy to collect you from either Tisbury or Gillingham Station at a small additional charge.

The Coppice is a wonderful place for a rejuvenating break. Although it is part of a larger house, it feels quite separate and secluded, and you can have as much or as little contact with the hosts as… More

"A lovely studio in peaceful and beautiful surroundings - weekend perfect break"

We stayed for three nights at the end of June and had a fantastic time. Can't recommend the place highly enough - not only was the studio itself well equipped, clean and comfortable but Gabriela and Niel were really welcoming hosts. Aside from a few teething problems with the electrics, which our hosts were quick to iron out, our stay was perfect. The kitchen has everything you need and want and the garden and decking were great to sit out in during the warmer and drier evenings. The cat and the dogs were a welcome addition to our BBQs (particularly as my partner is a real animal lover) and the surrounding area is lovely. The walk up to Shaftesbury is not too long and the forest you walk through is great and I would highly recommend both Old Wardour Castle and Stourhead. Whether you want to walk or lounge, the place is brilliant. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
