Majestic, Shaftsbury – a dog friendly Sykes Cottage

Up to five dogs are welcome at Majestic, a charming, self-contained wing of the owners’ 1808 stone cottage, situated within North Dorset’s Blackmore Vale, only 2 miles from Shaftesbury.

Comfortably furnished, Majestic offers an ideal base for both a family group or couples wishing to explore this lovely area with their four-legged friends.

Inside Majestic you will find a well-equipped kitchen leading into a snug sitting and dining room, with exposed stone walls, and a staircase ascending to the two bedrooms and family bathroom.

Outside, there’s an attractive, small enclosed garden, whilst at the rear, visitors to Majestic are welcome to use the child and pet-safe lawned garden and seating area, perfect for outdoor dining.

You can also say hello to the owners’ miniature ponies and donkeys, who love to be petted!

Locally to Majestic, explore historic Shaftesbury with its array of fascinating shops, pubs (several of which are dog friendly) and restaurants, as well as famous Gold Hill of Hovis advert fame, take the short drive to the picturesque Blackmore Vale, or seek out Stourhead house and gardens, or quaint Sherborne with its abbey and ancient castles.

This Shaftesbury holiday cottage provides a perfect base from which to explore this lovely area.
