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, which has been sympathetically modernised, 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’ and ’Tess of the D’Urbervilles’ 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 three original 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 Jurassic Coast and Lyme Regis, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, Chesil Beach and Weymouth. The area caters for a wide variety of interests locally. Pastimes popular with guests are walking, bird-watching, visiting nature reserves, historic houses, museums, beautiful gardens. West Dorset is renowned for its picturesque pubs serving excellent food, notably fish, and scrumptious Dorset cream teas. Family attractions include Monkey World, the Abbotsbury Swannery and The Tank Museum. A well stocked shop with a butcher’s can be found 2 miles away. Shop and pub/restaurant 2 miles.

    A lovely bolt hole in Dorset and dog friendly too! It had a homely feel and it’s nice to come hope to after trips out to local attractions. There is a small garden and a sitting out area. There’s a lot to see close by and also some stunning beaches all within a 30 minute drive from this location. The owner also has a dedicated website with useful information on dog friendly beaches, cafes, pubs and sites to visit. This really helped towards making our stay in Dorset extra special.

    Very good, it was apparent that the owners had devoted time and trouble to make it a home. Thanks a million to Penny, the owner, who took the time to ring and E mail with all relevant information which made the arrival seamless and the holiday really enjoyable. Brilliant neighbours had we needed help, even the dog met and greeted us in her quiet way. Try it, you will love Meadow views.

    As soon as we arrived at 2 Meadow View Cottage we knew we had chosen our holiday home very well. So much character, pretty and homely - and that was just the outside! Once we entered inside the cottage itself we found it did not disappoint - a comfortable sitting room leads into a large kitchen/dining room with glazed door to rear garden - again all very 'cottagey' but will all mod cons - such a wonderful & practical combination! You will want for nothing - from a can opener to a large saucepan & everything you would need in between. Beyond the kitchen an interior door leads to a very well equipped utility room which also has a shower & wc. Upstairs: are 2 very spacious bedrooms with a large bathroom with a bath & hand held shower /mixer taps. Please note: the staircase to upstairs is a little steep - but I am almost 70 years old and managed them easily enough & there is a step down into the utility room from the kitchen - but again it wasn't a problem for me. However, the owner mentions both these features in the cottage description so I was aware of the step & staircase before I booked.

    Quiet in cottage and only about 12 residences in the hamlet so local amenities not expected. Road through village appears to be a bit of a rat run to avoid the dual carriageway with no pavements and little verges.
