Shaftesbury Glade Cottages
At present, 'Shaftesbury Glade Cottages'  is able to boast three unique features that most boutique accommodation places anywhere would be struggling compete against.

1. Woodland-like grounds consisting of deciduous trees, hedges and shrubs. Each cottage is in it's own tree enclosed area giving privacy and a peaceful, restful setting.

2. An old large cast iron enamelled bath set amongst trees for a 'hot restful soak' under the stars. Hot water is provided by a wood fired water heater which provides piping hot water only 1 hour after lighting. A great experience that is well worth the small effort of lighting a fire.

3. A Swedish / Finnish styled 'steam sauna room'. The perfect place to help relax the body after a 'dose of city life' or after a long days walking on one of the many tramps the area has to offer. The heat is provided by a 'Tylo' electric sauna heater and humidity is increased by splashing water onto the sauna stones that sit in the heater. A small tariff is charged to cover power costs in running the heater.
