Wren Cottage is a modern country cottage in the historic village of Tolpuddle. It sits in an elevated position giving lovely country views over thatched rooftops from both bedrooms. It is a short walk to the Martrys Inn which offers friendly service and a good choice of home made food with special themed nights from time to time which are particularly good value.
The spacious hall has exposed brick work and stone flooring which follows through to the downstairs cloakroom and the twin aspect kitchen diner which has all you need for a self catering holiday. There is a dining table with four chairs; a bookcase full of tourist information, maps and guide books; oven and hob; dishwasher; washer/drier; microwave; coffee maker; iron & ironing board. French doors lead into the garden.
The lounge is also twin aspect and has oak flooring; leather sofas; flatscreen TV with freeview; I pod dock; games, DVDs and jigsaws; and has wireless broadband connected.
Upstairs is a king size bedroom and a twin bedroom. Both have bedside cabinets and lights, plenty of storage, and views. There is a family bathroom and good size shower room with walk in shower, fitted new in 2011.
Tolpuddle is a pretty village once dominated by the through road but now left in peace thanks to the new A35. It is renowned for the Tolpuddle Martyrs and you can visit the Museum to learn all about the history of the Trades Union Movement.
Dorchester, the County town of Dorset, is some 8 miles away and Puddletown (2 miles) offers an excellent village shop with family butchers.
The nearest beach is Ringstead Bay (11.5) miles but Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and the World Heritage Jurassic coastline is close at hand. Within 10 miles you will find Clouds Hill, the home of T E Lawrence (of Arabia); Kingston Maurward House, Gardens and Animal Farm; Lulworth Castle; Max Gate, the home of Thomas Hardy; Monkeyworld and several Museums including the renowned Tank Museum at Bovington.
