Situation

This wonderful property is situated in the West Dorset countryside in the village of Long Bredy. Located seven miles to the west of the county town of Dorchester and just a few miles from the spectacular Jurassic Coastline, Long Bredy is a small, peaceful village in the beautiful Bride Valley. Kingston Russell House is an imposing manor house situated within the village and in 1769 was the birthplace of Thomas Masterman Hardy who grew up to become Admiral Hardy of Trafalgar fame. The village is now home to approximately 200 residents, the 13th century St Peter’s church, a village hall and a small playing field. It is surrounded by working farms and has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Regular bus services to Dorchester and Bridport (7.5 miles west) run from Long Bredy Hut.
