The heart of the semi-fictional landscape of Wessex that Thomas Hardy brought so evocatively to life in his novels is rooted in the picturesque Dorset countryside in which the author grew up.

This 'Partly Real, Partly Dream Country' is the perfect embodiment of England's romantic, pastoral countryside - where better for a traditional cottage getaway? A visit to Hardy Country allows you to walk in the steps of Hardy's characters themselves. Wander through the lush, idyllic surroundings of the Blackmore Vale, explore the ancient woodlands and chalk downlands of Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or wander through the historic, cobbled streets of Dorchester. These beautiful locations are merged forever with the author's work and there's a sense of this unique literary legacy wherever you choose to discover.

Hardy Country is one of the most enchanting and timeless places to stay in the South of England, and a superb range of self-catering cottages to rent in Hardy Country are the perfect accommodation for your trip. For an extra taste of Wessex life, why not transport yourself right into the pages of a Hardy novel with a break at a traditional, thatched cottage? Our travel experts are here to help. Call us today on 01244356666 - your holiday awaits.
