Meadow Views Cottage
More than Dog Friendly Accommodation in Puddletown, Dorset
Meadow Views is a pretty, mid-terrace, Victorian dog friendly cottage retaining a wealth of period features in the hamlet of Lower Waterston, less than 2 miles from Puddletown. The interior is decorated with antiques and little touches which help to create a true ‘home away from home’ experience so that guests can settle in quickly and relax.
Whatever the season, there are stunning views over the gardens at the back to the nearby River Piddle and water meadows beyond. Finches, woodpeckers, house martins, pheasants, grouse, owls, bustards, rabbits, deer and badgers have all been seen from the upstairs windows. Guests invariably awake to the sound of cattle lowing in the nearby fields.
Many of Thomas Hardy’s novels – such as Far From the Madding Crowd – refer to places in the surrounding countryside. For example, Puddletown became Weatherby and Hardy based Weatherby Farm on Waterston Manor to which ours is the middle of three farm worker’s cottages built in 1885.
The cottage lies 5 miles north east of Dorchester with its many attractions and excellent facilities; yet it is within easy reach of the coast and Lyme Regis, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, Chesil Beach and Weymouth. The area caters for a wide variety of interests locally. Popular pastimes are walking, bird watching, visiting RSPB reserves, historic houses, museums and beautiful gardens such as Minterne - and Mapperton where the 2015 remake of Far From the Madding Crowd was filmed. Family attractions include Monkey World, the Tank Museum and the Abbotsbury Swannery.
