About the location

Tolpuddle

Dorchester 8 miles.

The delightful village of Tolpuddle lies deep in the heart of Hardy country, just 8 miles from the bustling market town of Dorchester. Full of character, this village offers a tasteful combination of modern and thatched properties, surrounded by glorious countryside. The lush meadows, watered by the quaintly named 'River Piddle', and the nearby chalk downland provide lovely rural walks. This tranquil village is probably best known for its six famous Martyrs who held the first Trade Union meeting in 1831, and the local museum tells their story. There are plenty of other local attractions including Lawrence of Arabia's cottage, Athelhampton House, The Tank Museum and Monkey World, all of which are well worth a visit. With the delightful towns of Dorchester, Poole and Bournemouth, and the stunning Jurassic Coast also easily accessible, this is an ideal base for a varied holiday.

A very comfortable house in a fantastic location, with lovely owners. The property exceeded our expectations and is one of the nicest properties we have ever rented.

Lovely warm house. Well placed for touring round this area of Dorset.

Mrs Blackmore, London, October 2013

The setting and the location was perfect. The general standard of the cottage was excellent. A brilliant place to stay and will be back and tell all our friends and family as well.

Mr Scrase, Wellingborough, June 2013

The area was beautiful and the cottage was fantastic. There was a good pub only 10 mins walk away.
