2 Appletree Cottage

2 Appletree Cottage is tucked away in the quiet village of Sixpenny Handley near the town of Shaftesbury. Thought to be a former estate workers cottage for Rushmore Estate, parts of the cottage are believed to date back to 1866.

This charming, semi-detached two bedroom cottage is full of character and is a perfect example of old meets new with its traditional decor and modern conveniences. The rural setting is the perfect escape for those looking to embrace the outdoors, providing an excellent retreat for guests to enjoy walking, cycling or riding.

A short drive away is the historic market town of Shaftesbury, that offers stunning views of the surrounding Dorset countryside as one of the highest towns in England. Shaftesbury offers rural charm, with quaint cottages and cobbled streets and its thriving town offers an abundance of independent shops, restaurants and cafes to enjoy.
