Welcoming you to Yalbury Cottage...

...with a friendly atmosphere and wonderful views. Stay and relax in our lovely rooms, enjoy a superb freshly cooked breakfast and dine in our award winning restaurant.

Small bespoke weddings and parties are a speciality and we offer a great alternative venue for private business meetings with easy and ample parking.

Just two miles from Dorchester, Dorset, Yalbury Cottage is set in the hamlet of Lower Bockhampton - the heart of Thomas Hardy's Wessex - walking distance to his birthplace, across the road from his old school house and around the corner from Stinsford church where his heart is buried.
