Gay and Phil have created a beautiful oasis that feels peaceful and private yet is right in the heart of town. We stayed in the Bali Room and it was serene and beautiful. The breakfast was exceptionally tasty, with everything freshly prepared. We couldn't recommend The Walled Garden more highly. The hosts are what make this place so special--welcoming and knowledgable--they really went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. Shaftesbury is within easy driving distance of many wonderful sights, but it was nice to come home in the evening, park the car, and walk to have dinner or a late night pint in this very picturesque town. Shaftesbury makes a terrific base for exploring because it is so easy to get in and out of by car, and so well located. The garden surrounds the reception rooms downstairs and the views are beautiful. The house is ingeniously designed to maximize views, space and comfort. I can't think of a thing I would change. We look forward to a return visit.
