Emma and Brian Smith welcome you to No. 16. The house is situated on the edge of
Shaftesbury in a small, modern and exclusive development, but it is only a 10 –15 minute
walk into town. It is a peaceful community, the back of the house overlooks playing fields
and no rooms are overlooked.
We are ideally located to explore Dorset and surrounding areas which are jam-packed with history and great views. Take a walk along the Jurassic coast, take in the sights of Stonehenge or the gardens of Stourhead. Longleat safari park is well worth a visit and Salisbury, with it's spectacular Cathedral, is only half an hour away. Or you could just use us as a base for a relaxing time. Shaftesbury is a Saxon hill top town famous for it's Gold Hill and connections to King Alfred.
No. 16 has a suite of one double and one twin room on the top floor available for one to four guests with exclusive bathroom. Ideal for families .or friends on holiday together (cot available). Rooms are equipped with comfortable, new beds and because we feel quality counts we only use 100% Egyptian cotton bed linen. Hair dryer, T.V. coffee and tea making facilities (including freshly ground coffee and cafetieres) in each room and as we hate UHT, fresh milk is provided.
You will be given a choice for your breakfast the night before so it can be freshly prepared for you. Produce is homemade and/or locally sourced; for example flour for our homemade bread comes from Cann Mill just 2 miles from Shaftesbury.
We are happy for our guests to use the conservatory in the warmer weather.
The double room overlooks the terraced garden and fields beyond.
The twin room overlooks the quiet, courtyard-like access to No.16. On a clear day you can see the trees of Winn Green, the highest point in North Dorset.
A selection of cereals, homemade bread for toast, orange juice, fruit & yogurt etc., as well homemade jams, marmalade and local honey will be served. (We can also provide porridge on request).

endeavour to fulfil them.
