Property Summary

A simply charming cottage located within the sought after location of St. James in Shaftesbury.

The North Dorset Saxon hilltop market town of Shaftesbury is famed for the iconic cobbled street of Gold Hill and rich history going back to the times of King Alfred. Shaftesbury is a delightful community orientated town with an attractive and bustling High Street that provides most everyday requirements including a farmers’ market, cafés, charity shops, various retail shops, veterinary practise and a cottage hospital. The local road network offers strong connections to the other main towns in the region including Gillingham, Salisbury, Sherborne, Warminster and Yeovil as well as to the South Coast. In addition the A303 links with the M3 that makes London accessible for the motorist.

There are railway stations at Gillingham (4.5 miles) and Tisbury (8 miles) with mainline services to London (Waterloo) and the West Country. Families are drawn to this area by the quality of life and excellent choice of state and independent schools including Port Regis, Clayesmore, Sandroyd and Bryanston amongst many others. Shaftesbury also offers several ways to explore the stunning countryside and traditionally English villages of the Blackmore Vale, Cranborne Chase and Wiltshire Downs with their miles of peaceful public footpaths and bridleways.

Hawthorne Cottage is a simply charming characterful home situated at the foot of the prestigious Gold Hill within the ever sought after of St. James in Shaftesbury.

Internally, this pretty cottage has been very well cared for by the current owner and presents a side entrance, kitchen, sitting room, two bedrooms and a modern fitted bathroom.

The ‘sun trap’ couryard garden can be found to the side of the cottage and is mainly laid with slate chippings for ease of maintenance.

Enclosed to all sides to ensure privacy and security, the garden is an ideal space to enjoy throughout the season and offers an ample space to dine alfresco and entertain. Currently, there are several colourful pot plants that all contribute to a very pleasant outside space.


All mains services are connected.
