Benville Cottage, an historic Grade II listed 17th century detached property with a charming thatched roof and a wealth of period features, restored to a very high standard. Benville remains the small unspoilt hamlet that Thomas Hardy described in the 1800’s. You will still find the pub described by Hardy and the cottage where Tess was to have stayed in nearby Evershot.
The cottage itself is on Benville Lane, the very lane that Tess of the D’Urbeville walked along on her journey from Beaminster to Evershot.
Sleeps 4 people.
Two dogs accepted.
