Athelhampton House is yet another fine example of an old English house with formal gardens, tea rooms & restaurant that we all like to potter around. The grounds are well kept and formal, the river walk is short but pretty. The house is owned privately and lived in but you are able to look around some of the rooms in the house. There is a connection with Dorset's favourite son Thomas Hardy, who birth place is nearby at Bockhampton. We have visited this property recently and recommend it as a place to visit.
Why not stay here at Quiet Woman House, it is only 25 miles or a 40 minute drive via Dorchester on the A37 to Athelhampton. Email us directly for our best rates.
