Pippins is a romantic rural cottage located in the village of Holywell surrounded by lush Dorset countryside. The property has been carefully furnished to enhance the character features of the cottage. The large pretty garden boasts views across some of Dorset's magnificent rural landscapes. Surrounding villages all have an appeal of their own and you can imagine why Thomas Hardy was inspired to write such wonderful literature. The cottage is ideally placed for country walks and bird watching. Within a 10 mile drive you can reach the towns of Yeovil, Sherborne or Dorchester, which have many places of historical interest to visit as well as an abundance of shops. A journey to the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton is a great day out for the children. Street which is famous for its outlet village selling cut price designer clothes and shoes is a relatively short car journey from the cottage. Weymouth with its famous golden sands lies approximately 18 miles from Pippins. Please note: Pippins is located within close proximity of a railway line so you can occasionally hear passing trains.

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.
