    “Had a lovely few days staying at the old school cottage.”

    My only comments would be the main bed is pushed against a wall with no bedside tables & the cottage is probably due a lick of paint.

    My only comments would be the main bed is pushed against a wall with no bedside tables & the cottage is probably due a lick of paint. The cottage is great for a few days rest and switch off time. Joan is a lovely host. The cottage is set in a lovely location and you have the use of Joan’s garden.

About the location

TINCLETON

Dorchester 5 miles.

The tiny Dorset hamlet of Tincleton nestles in an attractive rural setting within the valley of the River Frome, just 5 miles east of the county town of Dorchester. The area was beloved by Thomas Hardy, who was born at Bockhampton, just 3 miles away, and often mentioned the surrounding villages, such as Puddletown (Weatherbury), in his novels. Abounding in lovely walks, the countryside is rich in wildlife, and the River Frome is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Close by you can visit Lawrence of Arabia's cottage at Clouds Hill, as well as his final resting place at Moreton. If you are looking for fun-filled activities for the whole family to enjoy, Monkey World and the Tank Museum at Bovington offer super days out. However, no trip to this area would be complete without a visit to the stunning Dorset Jurassic Coast, with scenic views from the coastal path, spectacular coves and the sandy beaches of Weymouth, all just a short drive. Tincleton is a convenient, rural base from which to explore this lovely area.

Note: restricted head height in the twin bedroom due to sloping ceiling
Note: the double eaves bedroom is open to the staircase, so children need to be supervised at all times.
Note: O2 is good but some mobile signals may be intermittent (can be checked online)
Please note: This property has a minimum stay of x3nights.
