This country guesthouse in a thatch-roofed 17th-century former shepherd's cottage (with a more modern extension) is a 3-minute walk from the Frome River, 1.2 miles from Thomas Hardy's birthplace cottage and 2.4 miles from Dorchester.
Situated in the very heart of Hardy Country on the edge of the idyllic Yellowham Wood within 120 acres of farmland. The farm contains an abundance of flora and fauna which has been gently nurtured over the years. The accommodation is to the rear of the main house in a cloister type setting where peace and tranquillity are guaranteed.
