    Description

    Featured in The Sunday Times' Britain's Top 20 Cottages, Updown Cottage is a home for all seasons... in winter, curl up cosily in front of the woodburning stove surrounded by sumptuously rich fabrics... in summer, soak up the long, light-filled days from the hillside garden, perched above the tiled and thatched roofs of Shaftesbury whilst taking in the views over miles and miles of glorious English countryside.

    Retire to bedrooms adorned with crisp, white, Egyptian cotton bed linen piled high with luxurious cushions.

    The cottage sleeps 6 in 4 beautifully decorated and furnished bedrooms, complemented by an ensuite shower room, a bathroom and a wet room.

    Situated near the top of historic, cobbled Gold Hill, C16th Grade ll listed Updown Cottage abounds with beams and the character which can only come with the passing of over four hundred years.
