Mr P Jordan
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Toll Lodge, which was very comfortable, and furnished and equipped to a high standard.
We also felt that the cost was reasonable.
The property is in a quiet village, yet easily-placed for Dorchester and the Jurassic Coast, as well as for trips to inland attractions.
Highly recommended! - Stayed September 2017

About the Location
Dorchester offers rolling green countryside, alongside all the pleasures of a vibrant market town, with beautiful architecture, an abundance of Roman history and some of the finest restaurants in Dorset. Shopping in Dorchester is a much loved pastime too, with many high street names alongside lovely boutique stores and regular traditional markets.
You can feel the spirit of Thomas Hardy everywhere in Dorchester; this is where he was born in 1840 in the delightful cob and thatch cottage built by his grandfather just a 12 minute drive from the town. This cottage is where Thomas Hardy sat and wrote ‘Under the Greenwood Tree’ and ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’. Visitors can visit Hardy’s Cottage, which is now owned by The National Trust and has barely been altered since his family left.
