About the owners


February 2021

The Cottage is looked after by the wonderful team at The Eastbury Hotel. Being surrounded by the winding meadows with deer and other wildlife is such a blessing and being able to share it with our guests is even better! We launched Eastbury Cottage in 2020 and it has proved a popular location for families to use as a base for their UK staycation! We are very lucky to be surrounded by not only the Dorset countryside but also a wide range of family attractions and the brilliant Jurassic Coastline. We pride ourselves in the quality of service we provide making everyone's visit a memorable one. With the Hotel just a stone's throw away we are available at any time to be of service to our guests.

Tips from the owners

Local things to do, places to eat and attractions not to be missed.

  • Bring your bucket and spade and drive just 45 minutes to the historic Jurassic Coastline with panoramic views. Castle building, paddling and fossil hunting are a must-do.

  • Local attractions such as Sherborne Castle, National Trust properties and gardens, museums, Longleat Safari Park are all highly recommended.

  • The town of Sherborne is not to be missed, with antique shops, unique gifts and plenty of cafes where you can enjoy afternoon tea.

  • Bring your walking boots and try out the local walks for views of the glorious countryside.
