Self-catering holiday cottage to rent in Shaftesbury, Dorset

Pump Cottage is a fully-equipped, self-catering holiday cottage to rent in Shaftesbury, Dorset, England, with two double rooms and a twin room, providing accommodation for up to six people.

Pump Cottage is a three bedroom, Grade II listed Building, in St James, at the bottom of Gold Hill in Shaftesbury, Dorset.

Our spacious, thatched vacation cottage has a private garden set in a secluded and quiet area of Shaftesbury but within 5 minutes walking distance of the centre of the town. The cottage has all modern amenities but maintains the original characteristics of a Dorset country cottage. With the wood burner and low, beamed ceilings, this cosy, family cottage is perfect for a homely holiday in one of the most attractive parts of England.

A unique feature of our holiday cottage is the stylish conservatory at the back.  Full of light with a glass roof, opening on to the garden and patio, the conservatory is a useful and attractive extension to the holiday accommodation, providing extra space and comfort.
