Piddletrenthide is set in the West of Dorset and provides a charming base from which to visit the beautiful and historic county of Dorset. The county is famous for containing most of what is known as Thomas Hardy Country. The area provided the setting for many of Hardy's famous novels, although he often changed the place names. Today the area provides many fine walks which are of interest to those of a literary persuasion, or those who just enjoy a walk in some of England's most beautiful countryside. Refreshment in Piddletrenthide can be found at the Piddle Inn and the Poachers Inn.
