Located on an old dairy, The Creamery is within strolling distance of the centre of the historic market town, Dorchester. The interior combines characterful vaulted, beamed ceilings with contemporary decor and stylish furnishings. The bright and spacious open plan lounge, kitchen and diner offers a great space for congregating and spending time together, following days spent exploring and enjoying the delights of Dorchester, the surrounding countryside and nearby Jurassic coast. The property comprises three comfortable bedrooms, including a generously sized double room, a single room and a third bedroom offering the option of either a super kingsize double, or a twin room, depending on the requirements of your party.

Dorchester offers a traditional high street with a large selection of well-known shops and complemented by lanes accommodating charming boutique shops and independent retailers, while the vibrant Brewery Square offers an expansive choice of cafes, restaurants, shops and entertainment. With several museums located in the town, why not soak up some culture followed by a stroll through the pretty Borough Garden, or The Duchy of Cornwall's Poundbury.  On the outskirts of Dorchester, Maumbury Rings, a grassed Roman amphitheatre is a fantastic spot for a picnic and it also plays host to various events, including live music and theatre, during the summer months. The Iron Age hill fort of Maiden Castle is just over a mile away from the centre of Dorchester and offers visitors some stunning views, and an opportunity to explore what is reputed to be the largest hill fort of its kind in Europe.  Around 10 miles away is the coast at Weymouth, which boasts a long and sandy beach along with traditional beach entertainments such as donkey rides and Punch and Judy.

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.
