River Cottage is situated in Puddletown, near Dorchester. Built in 1840, it is a beautiful, traditionally built Grade II Listed cottage, that has been sympathetically modernised to provide all the comfort of modern day living but retaining the charm and character of the period in which it was built. It is situated in an idyllic location, surrounded by beautiful, carefully tended gardens, through which, the river Piddle flows. Many tranquil hours are spent on the wooden bridge; listening to the soothing flow of the river and watching the fish swim by.

Puddletown is steeped in history, situated in the heart of 'Thomas Hardy Country'. Puddletown is believed to be the 'Weatherbury' of Hardy's Wessex. It figures prominently in 'Far From The Madding Crowd'. The cottage is in an ideal position to start exploring 'Hardy Country', Poole, Bournemouth and the nearby Jurassic coastline. Many River Cottage guests return for further visits.
Hairdryers and bathrobes are provided for guests' convenience
