Updown Cottage, Gold Hill, Shaftesbury, Dorset


Discounted late availability at Updown Cottage.


My children know that I can find the answer to most questions in the writings of AA Milne, who would definitely be on my fantasy dinner party guest list.  I would love to have met him but sadly that opportunity is gone, although I believe my grandfather met the real Christopher Robin whenever he visited his branch of Lloyds Bank in Pall Mall.


Most people need to recharge at some point and spend a few days of unplanned 'Nothing'.......



“How do you do Nothing,” asked Pooh after he had wondered for a long time.


“Well, it’s when people call out at you just as you’re going off to do it, ‘What are you going to do, Christopher Robin?’ and you say, ‘Oh, Nothing,’ then you go and do it.


It means just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.”


“Oh!” said Pooh.”


If you are just ready for a little bit of Nothing, Updown is available next week from Monday, 8th - Friday, 12th September and again the following week from Monday, 15th - Friday, 19th September and escaping at this late stage might even count as unplanned.


We're thinking that £100 discount might help in making the decision to do Nothing so the rates would be £595 for the first break and £495 for the second.


If you need a little longer to plan a period of Nothing, our availability calendar is below our tariff chart on this page http://www.updowncottage.co.uk/tariff


We are always available to help plan your escape to Dorset and I was touched and blushingly overwhelmed to receive this accolade recently from a well-travelled visitor from America:


"Jane is the most friendly, professional and helpful host I have encountered anywhere.”


Please do get in touch if we can help in any way.
