Claire was a great host and her flat is a fantastic base from which to explore Sherborne - a must stay if you enjoy lurking in traditional book shops!

Exactly what Airbnb used to be about. This is someone’s unique apartment, full of character, not a bland corporate “stylish” place that was bought for the purposes of short lets. Claire, your host, is as unique and full of personality as her accommodation, so lovely and so differ…

The flat was ideally situated in the centre of the town. It was well equipped, comfortable, cosy and clean. Claire was a great flexible host who communicated promptly with us. We will stay here again when we next visit Sherborne.

Very cosy flat above a second hand bookshop, right in the centre of Sherborne. Very well equipped with all mod. cons. and plenty of glasses, cutlery, crockery, pots, pans and casserole dishes. Very welcoming host. We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay.

Lovely flat, perfect as a base for Sherborne and the surrounding area. We liked having the bookshop below and being in a quiet courtyard.

Claire is a genuine, warm hearted lady with a great sense of humour and extremely welcoming. The place is great, we only hope it now doesn't get booked up.
