We travelled recently as a couple with an adult daughter. The two annexe rooms, where we stayed, are independent of the main house. They are roomy, very clean and have all the comforts of home. Absolutely perfect for a family group. We were lucky enough...More

Our only regret was that our road trip allowed us to spend only one night. Our group had two rooms booked, both extremely comfortable and well appointed. These were by far the most spacious and well-appointed rooms we encountered during our holiday. The guest rooms...More

About
Description
Set in the Piddle Valley, midway between abbey town of Sherborne and the county town of Dorchester, Longpuddle is well placed for exploring Thomas Hardy’s Dorset and the Jurassic Coast. The 400 year old More thatched cottage, originally a farmhouse, overlooks the embryo river Piddle which runs through the garden and paddocks. Guest accommodation comprises three spacious tastefully decorated rooms ideal for an extended stay; two double and one twin with colour TVs, radios and hairdryers, both en suite. A third bed can be made available if required. Breakfast consists of local produce freshly cooked personally by the proprietor. There is also a large comfortable guest’s lounge; with a log fire on winter days. This also has a colour television and views over the garden and paddocks. The name Longpuddle was used by Thomas Hardy collectively for the villages of the Piddle valley which has several excellent Pubs serving local food to suite a variety of tastes. The many bridleways offer a chance to see the local wildlife and badger watching is available locally. The delightful village of Cerne Abbas with the famous Giant (The Rude Man) is just a few minutes drive away. Ample off road parking is available Less
