Description

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.

    Nice little cottage . The living room furniture is uncomfortable. There is far too much crockery in the kitchen but at the same time it is lacking decent glasses. I feel the whole cottage is a bit cluttered. However it was lovely and warm, clean and welcoming.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. We provide guests with a boxed presentation set each of 6 Royal Scot Edinburgh crystal, long stemmed wine flutes and 6 whisky tumblers in addition to three shelves of everyday glasses. Had you contacted me, as I had encouraged you to do if you needed anything during your stay, I would have been able to tell where these are kept in the kitchen. We are currently refurbishing the cottage for 2017 taking into consideration the constructive comments we've received from you and other guests over the past 12 months.

    A lovelu, homely cottage, great location to visit the county. Because of its rural location there are no local amenities but this did not spoil the stay.

    Had great weather in October so that helped. The cottage was great and the only reason I didn't score a ten on the survey was the sofa was a little uncomfortable.

    Our fifth stay at this cosy and characterful cottage in two years and as ever, it didn't disappoint! So lovely to sit and relax in the garden after days out exploring all that Dorset has to offer. Some lovely family days out a short drive away e.g Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, Chessil Beach and Weymouth Bay. The addition of WiFi since our last visit was a bonus. Can't wait to return again!

    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!
