Welcome to Walled Garden a luxury boutique bed and breakfast in the heart of Shaftesbury, Dorset – run by Gary and Philip. Walled Garden offers an oasis of tranquility where you can kick off your shoes, enjoy a drink, and while away a few days between visits to beautiful places and attractions around Wessex, (Dorset, Somerset, WIltshire and Hampshire) the Jurassic Coast and other nearby areas of Southern England. Gay run and more relaxed than a hotel or inn. Read guests' comments about Walled Garden on Trip Advisor!

Now with BT Hi-speed broadband for those who must keep working.....

We have three beautifully furnished themed bedrooms.

Our home and rooftop terrace give stunning views over the medieval hilltop town of Shaftesbury and miles beyond.

We are located within the citadel area of Shaftesbury with its Arts Centre, museums, High Street leisure shopping and restaurants. Remember the famous Hovis advert made here on Gold Hill?

Walled Garden has delightful places to sit in sun and shade where you can relax and let the world go by or just watch the koi in the pond from the garden room. Go naturist on the rooftop in privacy for an all-over tan.

We have secure parking in front of the house, and there's wifi throughout in case you wish to share your travels with friends back home or catch up on a little work.

Shaftesbury is a great centre from which to explore the centre of Southern England and The "Attractions" page suggests 9 different directions for visits. A one-night stay or even a week is not enough!

June, July, August - Fridays and Saturdays we do not take one-night stays.
