Wren Cottage Tolpuddle
Wren Cottage was newly furnished in 2011 and offers modern country living in a fabulous elevated position with countryside views.
The pretty little village of Tolpuddle, some six miles east of Dorchester sits in the Piddle Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and this delightful detached cottage forms part of an historic village amongst picturesque thatched cottages. Tolpuddle is famous for The Martyrs, six farm labourers arrested in 1834 for trade union activity and sentenced to transportation to Australia. Thousands of people protested and, after three years, the men returned to England with free pardons and were treated as heroes.
The village boasts a lovely C12 church, the Tolpuddle Martyrs Museum, the Martyrs Inn, a Village Hall and Orchard Meadow, a new public open space with play equipment, seating, wildlife habitat and space to relax.
You can enjoy delightful walks using the wealth of footpaths and bridleways nearby and can take a walk along the River Piddle to the C15 Athelhampton House and Gardens, with its Restaurant/tea room.
