Welcome To Clare Cottage
Clare Cottage is situated in the centre of the charming Abbey town, Sherborne. One of the most picturesque towns in Dorset it is only a few minutes’ walk from the shops, the markets (when they are in town) and the Abbey itself. This 1650’s cottage has recently been renovated to a high standard retaining many of the old features giving it a warm and friendly atmosphere by owner Susie Muir-Mackenzie. The secluded garden is an ideal place for guests to enjoy a leisurely breakfast or a glass of wine in the summer months.
Much thought has gone into the renovations to create a stunning luxurious feel but still retaining the relaxed atmosphere cherished by all busy people. My philosophy is to give my guests as relaxing a time as they would wish.
The rooms are fitted out with fluffy towels and bath robes and I offer toiletries for your convenience keeping in mind climate change.

Food & Drink
There are some wonderful coffee shops and restaurants. One of my favourites is Oliver’s at the top of Cheap Street. The Three Wishes, The Pear Tree, Bean Shot and Kafe Fontana are all wonderful places to spend time drinking coffee and having a light lunch.
The town has some very exclusive Antique shops and an emporium and there are regular antique markets and Charterhouse, the auctioneer, has some very fine pieces of art and furniture for sale.
Things To Do
There are many National Trust and Heritage properties in Dorset, Somerset, and Wiltshire to visit and Sherborne is perfectly placed to visit many of them as the town is so central in the county. Dorset is full of gardens attached to The National Garden Scheme for the avid gardener.
