Self-catering accommodation in Shaftesbury

You may well remember Shaftesbury for its role in the famous ‘Hovis’ advert which sees a young bread delivery boy flying back down cobbled Gold Hill on his bike. The enchanting market town’s history dates back to Saxon times and it wears its past on its sleeve, with gorgeous old cottages and attractive cobbles against a backdrop of breath-taking countryside views. Delve into the history of the town in the Gold Hill Museum, which houses the oldest fire engine in Dorset.

The rural surroundings are best explored on foot, and there’s a plethora of beautiful walks, from climbing up above Blackmore Vale to take in the magnificent views, to exploring the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In the town itself, you can stroll around the Shaftesbury Heritage Trail, taking in 12 of the towns most significant buildings and blue-plaque sites.

Lovers of theatre and live shows will enjoy a visit to the Shaftesbury Arts Centre which has a fantastic programme of events with something on most days. If your visit coincides with the first Sunday of July, you’ll be in for a treat as the Gold Hill Fair brings the town alive with market stalls, music, colour and traditions.
