Opposite the local church, which dates to the Norman period, this Grade II 18th century cottage is the perfect base for those looking to explore Dorset’s idyllic countryside and stunning coastline.

Set in the heart of the historic village of Puddletown, Thomas Hardy's Weatherby in Far From the Madding Crowd, you will find the local shop and pub only moments away. The location is ideal for visiting many popular attractions including the Athlehampton House and Thomas Hardy’s Cottage. The beautiful Jurassic Coast with Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Corfe Castle are also within easy reach, as are the vibrant seaside resorts of Weymouth, Swanage and Studland. Dorchester, the county town of Dorset, is 5 miles away and offers a good selection of shops and restaurants, as well as two cinemas. Alternatively, explore the lovely surrounding countryside on foot with miles of footpaths to enjoy and try out one of the dog-friendly pubs en-route.

On entering this welcoming property you will find the comfortable lounge to the right of the hallway, which is an ideal space to relax as it has inviting sofas, TV/DVD with Netflix and a wood burner effect electric fire. Leading on from the lounge you will find the attractively designed kitchen which is fully equipped with an electric oven and hob, compact fridge/freezer, microwave, washer/dryer and dishwasher. A characterful dining room leads on from here and is the ideal spot to enjoy relaxed meals whilst admiring the original 18ft well from the viewing panel set into the floor. Heading into the inner hallway you will find a staircase leading to the first floor. Take the three steps up to the king-size bedroom with additional sofa bed (suitable for children), which has views of the church or choose the pretty cosy double to the rear of the property. The bedrooms share the bathroom, which is accessed via two steps and has a shower over bath and WC. All of the rooms in the property have Bluetooth music systems.

Stepping outside into the compact and secluded walled garden from the inner hallway, you can sit back and relax on the delightful patio area which has outdoor furniture, an ideal place for your morning coffee or something at the end of the day.
