Ryecross Farm Cottage is just half a mile from Shaftesbury, surrounded by idyllic farmland.

The Dorset region

Explore the fossils and stunning beaches of Dorset's Jurassic Coast, visit historic Sherborne and Shaftesbury, or enjoy the footpaths, country lanes and thatched-roof pubs Dorset offers.


It was founded 1100 years ago by King Alfred who built a fortified settlement here ad went on to build the Abbey which draws tourists throughout the year. Gold Hill is one of the most famous locations in Shaftesbury and in one of the cottages that sits on its top, you'll find the Town Museum which holds samples of the buttons which once made Shaftesbury so famous. Lying on the border of Wiltshire, staying in Shaftesbury also puts you within easy reach of other attractions, such as Stonehenge, the Compton Abbas airfield and the beaches of Poole and Bournemouth. About 5 miles north-east of Shaftesbury are the remains of Wardour Castle, which has never been restored since it was besieged during the English Civil War. Half an hour away are the fossilised beaches of Lyme Regis and Charmouth.
