About this Pub Accommodation

Privately owned, The Ship is an informal country pub offering great quality food, drink and accommodation. It expertly blends original features with modern design touches, retaining the values and atmosphere you’d expect from a traditional pub. Families, couples and friends are invited to use this as a base and discover the region; Sherborne, Gillingham and Shaftesbury are easily accessible. Great attractions like Longleat Safari Park, The Haynes Motor Museum and Stourhead house and gardens are perfect for a day out. Walkers can explore the Dorset countryside via nearby footpaths.

The Ship has five en-suite rooms to choose from and a hearty breakfast included is in the price; enjoy a traditional full English, vegetarian options or something lighter. Bedrooms are comfortable and modern in their design and above all, incredibly clean. Features include cosy beds, feather pillows and big duvets, free Wi-Fi, flat screen Freeview TVs and tea/coffee making facilities. Most rooms have stunning views of the surrounding countryside. For families with babies, a travel cot can be provided for any room.
