Location

Piddlehinton is known for its predominantly period properties within the well-regarded Piddle Valley. The village itself has a quaint and popular public house, The Thimble, and a microbrewery the Dorset Piddle Brewery. This charming village, and the larger neighbouring village of Piddletrenthide derive their names from the river on which they sit – the River Piddle. They have wonderful network of footpaths and bridleways crossing unspoiled countryside, popular, not only for its convenient location but also for its array of facilities, including a modern first school, Village Hall, and public houses together with a welcoming and active community. Dorchester lies approximately 8 miles south with mainline stations accessing London (Waterloo 2.5 hours), a wide range of shops and supermarkets, restaurants, cinemas, and various cultural activities, plus The County Hospital. The historic town of Sherborne lies some 25 minute drive away and has a fast direct train to Waterloo in 2 hours and 15 minutes. History note: For over 350 years (1066-1417), Piddlehinton was the property of Robert, Count of Mortain and of the collegiate church that he founded. Robert was one of the two half-brothers of William the Conqueror.
