Come to Thomas Hardy country for this literary event in Dorchester! If you enjoy a lovely walk, delicious food and a cultural medleys of exhibits, museums and historic buildings, Dorchester is a fantastic place to be near.

Dorchester is a perfect place to base yourself as it is on the doorway of many fantastic walks, and only a few miles from some beautiful beaches. The West Dorset Heritage Coast is an easy car ride away, with many really lovely things to do whatever the weather – Abbotsbury Swannery and Cerne Abbas are great places to go for the day. Dorchester has some super restaurants and cafes so you will never be short of places to try out. I ate at the Japanese restaurant Myra’s Kaiseki on High Street and really enjoyed it – and the service was excellent! A little bit of Japan in Dorchester. Click here to book your Dorchester cottage!
