The AreaPiddle Valley
The charming villages of Piddlehinton and Piddletrenthide derive their extraordinary name from the river on which they sit –the Piddle. Piddlehinton is a delightful village in which to wander, full of picturesque, thatched cottages and a charming location from which to explore some of England’s best countryside. The village boasts a thriving public house – The Thimble Inn.
Piddletrenthide is the larger of the two villages and has many 17th and 18th century banded flint and brick/stone cottages, a village shop and a highly regarded school with iron gates from the tomb of Lady Margaret Beaufort in Westminster Abbey.
Dorchester lies just over 5 miles to the south, on the banks of the river Frome, where there are a wide range of shops, and restaurants as well as the county hospital and a mainline railway station to London Waterloo.
Dorset is renowned for its excellent selection of schools and is well served for both state and private schools.
