Palladwr Coach House is a lovely, characterful Victorian cottage, within walking distance of Shaftesbury. It is ideal for couples, business travellers and families and is an excellent base for exploring Shaftesbury and the surrounding area - countryside, towns and Jurassic coast.

The space

Built in 1860 as a Coach House, the property spent many years being used as a garage and workshop but has recently undergone a full refurbishment to create a light, airy and characterful 1 bedroom cottage. The ground floor has an open plan kitchen and dining room and a spacious separate lounge with a kingsize sofa bed. The first floor has a good sized double bedroom and a bathroom with shower over the bath.

The ground floor benefits from underfloor heating and has a well equipped kitchen including induction hob, oven, fridge freezer, microwave, toaster, dishwasher and washing machine. There's a full range of pots and pans, crockery, glasses and cutlery.

There's always some essential supplies plus a few extras - tea, coffee, sugar, milk, bread, butter, fruit juice, muesli, yogurts.....

There is also a patio with table and benches to the side of the coach house for your use.

Off street parking is available for 2 cars directly outside the property.

The nearest supermarket is a 5 minute walk, as are the shops, pubs and restaurants of Shaftesbury.

Wifi is provided by a booster but it can be unreliable.

Could not recommend the Palladwr Coach House more; such a fabulous, clean, modern and stylish place to stay with wonderful hosts. Julie was very friendly and welcoming upon arrival and more than willing to help with any issues/questions/give advice about the local area. The extra touches of breakfast foods, fresh bread, milk and a bottle of wine were very appreciated and a lovely touch. Would recommend the Coach House to anyone looking to stay in the area! We had a wonderful stay and would happily return any time!

Palladwr Coach House is a little gem. It sits right at the edge of Shaftesbury High Street and would suit anyone touring the area or just wishing to experience the wonderful hilltop town of Shaftesbury. James is the most attentive of hosts, who is on hand in the house next door. He made sure that the kitchen was well stocked with the essentials (even a bottle of wine) and the whole place was beautifully spotless. For me a revisit is on the cards.

This apartment was brand new and very well stocked with all modern kitchen equpiment. Loads of space with large rooms, this was much more than we were expecting. Located close to the centre of Shaftesbury and Gold Hill, we used it as a base to explore Dorset and coast. Thank you for a really good stay and helpful hosts with a well stocked fridge - just really excellent place to stay.

The coach house is a wonderful place to stay. The facilities are first class. The interior decor and amenities provided by James are truly magnificent. It takes five minutes to stroll into Shaftesbury a lovely Saxon hill town with a wealth of pubs and restaurants and shops. James provided us with fresh milk crusty seeded bread yoghurt butter and eggs and a really nice bottle of wine. Even without these things we would rate the facility as excellent but rest assured that if you stay at the coach house you will have a wonderful location to explore this fascinating area.

Superbly renovated coach house, perfect hosts, the nearby road was a little noisy, but quietened down at night

A lovely cottage for us to use as a base for a weekend wedding. Everything was set up for is with lots in the fridge, eggs, milk and extras like a bottle of wine. Comfy bed, the space is bigger than it looks and bathroom/shower really great too
