  • A chocolate-box Grade II-listed thatched cottage – complete with its own 18ft original, glass-covered well in the dining room!
  • Puddletown forest just moments away offering miles of glorious walks and cycling routes, yet the county town of Dorchester is just five miles away and easy access to explore Dorset’s magnificent Jurassic Coastline
  • In the heart of the old village square, with the local, well-stocked shop and popular dog-friendly pub just a couple of minutes walk away
Property code: 78483

This characterful 18th-century cottage oozes charm, yet offers all the modern amenities for a fantastic stay. Ideally located for countryside lovers and beach goers wanting to explore Dorset.

This superb property, set in the historic village of Puddletown, is perfect for guests that love cycling and walkies – so that includes your loyal hound! Sleeping four across two stunning bedrooms, this property is the ideal place to enjoy a relaxing holiday away from busy life while still being within easy reach of popular attractions. Dog-friendly Durdle Door is just 11.5 miles away while Lulworth Cove (14 miles) offers access to the South West Coast Path – you might even sniff out some fossils!

The cottage, which retains lots of quaint features including a viewing panel in the floor so you can admire the original 18ft well, is spacious and comfortable. The lounge is cosy thanks to a wood burner and peaceful tones of the ocean dotted throughout, while the kitchen and dining room have a rustic country feel. Upstairs, the main bedroom is a fantastic size; spend some time winding down on the sofa among tranquil blues and yellows before snuggling into bed. The double bedroom is peaceful and comfy with exposed wood beams above the bed. Outside, a secluded walled garden with a suntrap patio is a brilliant spot for enjoying a morning coffee or evening tipple.

Explore Puddletown, also known as Weatherby in Thomas Hardy’s novel Far From the Madding Crowd, before heading out further. The Dinosaur Museum (5 miles) welcomes pups inside, as does the Dorset Teddy Bear Museum around the corner and both will be hits with kids. Wander the grounds of Athelhampton House and Gardens (1 mile) and stop for tea in the cafe. Sandworld in Weymouth (13.5 miles) is just one fun thing to do in the popular seaside resort, while Osmington Mills (13 miles) is great for family dog walking along the South West Coast Path to Bowleaze Cove (approx. 3.5-mile walk).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
