This sought after village with it's delightful 15th century church, a lovely Village Hall and the popular Wise Man Inn has a real community feel and stunning scenery.


This Thatched village in the Frome valley just to the east of Dorchester has good connections with Hardy’s work, the church of St. Andrews being the apparent setting for Tess and Angel Clare’s marriage in Tess of the D’Urbervilles. The Lower Lewell Farm, located outside the village is the most

probable site for ‘Talbothay’s Dairy’.
