Nice, private location at the back of owner's cottage. If you're looking for somewhere quiet the Old Stable makes good sense. That said, we felt that the accommodation was rather cramped (two adults and a Labrador), especially for a 7 night stay.
The two main problems for us were the flight of 6 stone steps up to the cottage. On our arrival I slipped up on them and hurt my arm - this was because they were carpeted with wet leaves. The other issue was the WiFi - the connection was so poor that we simply had to give up.
Sorry to say that we will not be returning to the Old Stable. If however you're the type of traveller who prefers their own company this may be for you but we certainly wouldn't recommend it for small families or those with mobility issues

The Old Stables is well located for Sherborne town itself, shops and supermarkets, and also close to the Old Castle and New Castle, with plenty of walking space as well, particularly convenient if you have a dog, as we did. It was well heated and private, something we count on. However, we have been to many holiday cottages over the years and, although The Old Stables has sufficient to put you up for a week, we were very disappointed in the general standard and condition of it. If you have any mobility problems then this is not the cottage for you. It is accessed up steep stone steps and the main bedroom is situated in the loft space of the property, requiring a slow climb up very steep stairs. This is not a place for those experiencing hip or knee problems. The cottage is 'dog friendly', which means you can expect that the cottage will be suitable to bring your pet. If you are in a strange house, your beloved pet will no doubt want to spend the night time with you, but if they like...
