This Cottage is brought to you by:


In superb locations and beautiful settings. Cottages4you gives you a fantastic range of hand-picked properties with quality you can rely on.


Set deep in the countryside yet only 10 miles from the coast and a wealth of attractions for all interests.

Meadow Views is a pretty, mid-terrace, Victorian cottage retaining a wealth of period features set in the hamlet of Lower Waterston, less than 2 miles from Puddletown. The interior is decorated with antiques and little touches which help to create a true ‘home away from home’ holiday experience so that guests can settle in quickly and relax. Whatever the season, there are stunning views over the gardens at the back to the nearby River Piddle and water meadows beyond. Finches, woodpeckers, house martins, pheasants, grouse, owls, bustards, rabbits, deer and badgers have all been seen from the upstairs windows. Guests invariably wake up to the sound of cattle lowing in the nearby fields. Many of Thomas Hardy’s novels such as ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’ refer to places in the surrounding countryside. For example, Puddletown became Weatherby, and Hardy based Weatherby Farm on Waterston Manor to which this cottage is one of the three farm worker’s cottages built in 1885. The cottage lies 5 miles east of Dorchester with its many attractions and excellent facilities, yet is within easy reach of the coast and Lyme Regis, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, Chesil Beach and Weymouth. The area caters for a wide variety of interests locally. Popular pastimes are walking, bird-watching, visiting RSPB reserves, historic houses, museums, beautiful gardens and, of course, picturesque pubs serving excellent food. Family attractions include Monkey World, the Abbotsbury Swannery and Walking with Llamas. Shop and pub/restaurant 2 miles.

Ground floor: Living room. Dining room/kitchen with tiled floor. 1 deep step down to utility room with shower cubicle and toilet. Steep stairs to first floor: 2 bedrooms: 1 double, 1 twin (can be double on request). Bathroom with bath, shower attachment and toilet.

    A very quiet location, but within easy distance of many attractions and country walks.

    We very much enjoyed our stay in this delightful cottage. Everything worked well and we were very warm even though it was a very cold period. The only downside is the lane and you really wouldn't want to walk the dog along it. Having said that there are paths and woods within a few minutes drive which our dog loved!

    Our stay at Meadow Views was very comfortable indeed. We had everything we needed. Beautiful secluded garden with table and chairs, lovely airy bedrooms with plenty of wardrobe space and hangers, well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge with plenty of books and DVDs, nice big bathroom, adequate shower, washing machine, good parking. I was staying at the cottage as a base for looking up family history. I love the area and would definitely return to Meadow Views. My only slight disappointment was that you need to use a car to get to pubs and shops etc Would have been absolutely perfect if there had been a local pub we could stroll to in the evening. The only other petty niggle was that there was a canteen of special cutlery in a cupboard. Every day cutlery near the kitchen working area would have been more practical

    Very comfortable cottage in a great location for exploring the area. A real home from home. Great garden; we had breakfast outside every day, and it was totally enclosed, so we didn't have to worry about our dog. The off-road parking was spacious; easily room for 2 cars.
