It isn’t only holiday-makers and potential buyers who will benefit. “There are four Independent Boarding Schools and an International College in the area so, should parents wish to extend their stay, Sherborne Cottages is there to accommodate.”Teachers, parents and guardians of pupils attending Sherborne School, Sherborne Girls, Sherborne International College, Sherborne Preparatory School and Leweston Girls School all qualify for a 10 per cent discount on holiday lets through Sherborne Cottages.Jackson-Stops & Staff’s Sherborne branch currently occupies a Tudor building adjacent to Sherborne Abbey in the heart of the town, but are shortly moving to Sherborne Cottages’ original premises, which was formerly home to the local bookstore on Hound Street.www.sherbornecottages.comJackson-Stops & Staff Sherborne cottages March 2, 2017Sheila ManchesterWhat’s your opinion?
