Family-friendly apartments in Shaftesbury
Appleyard Cottage is a beautiful thatched cottage with plenty of character and modern comforts. Located in the centre of the pretty village of Donhead St Mary, nestled in Cranbourne Chase, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Enter the property through a small porch and be greeted with the gorgeous, well-equipped kitchen fitted with a Rayburn and dining table seating six guests. Continuing through the property to the left of the kitchen you will find the utility area with a separate sink, dishwasher, washer dryer, fridge freezer and electric hob for those who are not confident cooking on the Rayburn. On the other side of the kitchen is the entry way to the sitting room with cosy wood burning stove, original beams and comfy sofas. You can get lost in your thoughts and watch the world go by if you decide to perch on the window seats that look out to the front of the property.

Climb the staircase in the sitting room to the first floor to reach the cottage's two large vaulted bedrooms with exposed beams that add plenty of character. The master bedroom has a king size bed and second bedroom is a twin room furnished with two single beds. Upstairs you will also find the family bathroom with a drench shower over the bath.

To the outside of the property is a lovely garden at the front, with garden furniture perfect for enjoying breakfast in the morning or an evening meal. There is also access to a rear enclosed courtyard suitable for visiting pets.
