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.

    A clean, well equipped and comfortable cottage within 10 minutes drive to the A35. The nearest beaches are a long drive away apart from Weymouth (but who wants to drive there in a 5 mph traffic queue). If a walker like me there are terrific forests in Dorset but again a good drive away from this cottage. If you have a dog, there are no walks or public footpaths from the cottage, the neighbour walks his dog each morning on a footpath a ten minute drive away. To sum up: lovely cottage with an interesting garden but location is not good.

    A lovely cottage in a great location. Our only criticism is that the living room furniture is uncomfortable.

    We loved the cottage, in particular the sparkly new kitchen which was very well appointed. The bedrooms were great too, only thing we'd change is a sofa rather than just armchairs in the living room. The neighbours were lovely and friendly and although there are no amenities within walking distance we didn't mind driving. Watching the birds was amazing, so many in the lovely front and back gardens. We would definitely recommend this place.
