Stunning Modern Converted Coach House - Sleeps 2. The Music Room, is in close proximity of The Manor House and surrounded by the walled garden which encompasses both properties. It enjoys its own private terrace with a table and chairs and a BBQ.

The space
Why this location?

The beauty of our property is its age and character and its prime location at the foot of the famous Gold Hill in Shaftesbury. Our house was built in 1604 and The Music Room was the original Coach House for The Manor House. The Music room was converted in the Spring of 2013 to a luxury holiday let for 2 people or a couple with a baby. The Music room enjoys close proximity to the Saxon town of Shaftesbury and yet within 5 minutes walk to the beautiful rolling countryside of the Blackmore Vale.

What are the unique benefits of the property?

The Music Room has been fitted to a very high standard and benefits from being a 5 minute walk to the local pub. From there it is a short but steep walk up the famous Gold Hill, renowned for the Hovis advert . This is the most beautiful street ...... a step back in time . Once you have reached the top of Gold Hill you are in the centre of this Anglo Saxon town. Shaftesbury is steeped in history and tradition and is one of the oldest and highest towns in England and it dominates what Hardy called the 'engirdled and secluded Blackmore Vale'. At the top of Gold Hill you must sit back and enjoy the stunning views whilst tasting the fabulous fayre on offer at The Salt Cellar Cafe. Shaftesbury and the surrounding area has so much to offer.

We have lived in The Manor House, St James Street, Shaftesbury since 2003. I am a nurse working for the NHS and at a private Medical and laser clinic.
I have got three grown up children who return frequently, such is their love of the area and all it has to offer.
Monkey and Chips are our two westies who are very much part of the family !

Guest access
Free parking on site as well as a private terrace with tables and chairs immediately outside the door of the cottage. The Music Room's outdoor area has recently been extended and now includes a private walled area around round the back of the property with additional table and chairs, BBQ and umbrella. This is the perfect spot to catch the afternoon sun in complete privacy!

Other things to note
We welcome people on short breaks with a minimum of 2 nights as well as week stays or longer as requested. Do enquire if you have any questions on rates/availability.
