PLACES TO STAY

 

UPDOWN COTTAGE

www.updowncottage.co.uk

If you are a follower of the business Twitter, Instagram or Facebook feeds you'll notice how many times I photograph the view across the famous Gold Hill in Shaftesbury, Dorset,  a stone's throw from the studio. This 5 Star Gold award winning cottage is the one right in the middle of the images. It's stunning, both inside and out and for a cottage with views this takes some beating. 

 

SEPTEMBER COTTAGE

https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/2175570?s=Hi3U

A traditional stone built Shaftesbury cottage, beautifully renovated. A level walk to the town centre and Gold Hill which are just a stone's throw away. September Cottage also has its own proper English cottage garden. Cream tea anyone? This would make a perfect base for a few days exploring the coastline and countryside of Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset.
