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.
Yalbury Cottage has been awarded the 20th Best Restaurant with Rooms in the UK!
In association with Harden’s, The Times awarded us 20th Best Restaurant with Rooms in the UK on the 8th November 2013.
Harden guides are based on what is now the largest annual survey of restaurant-goers in the UK - so a huge thank you to our lovely customers for your fantastic reviews that have given us a place on this very fine list. We are very proud and hugely grateful!
