We've planned an interesting programme of events and activities to bring the cottage to life in 2014. It includes Hardy themed talks, an Easter Trail, musical performances and festive celebrations. Follow the link to the events page for details of upcoming events.
Walk in Hardy's footsteps
How about exploring the landscape which provided inspiration for Hardy's work? Take a walk through the woodland and heathland surrounding the cottage, just as Hardy once did himself.
You can also tick off some 50 things activities along the way, including build a den, make a trail with sticks, create some wild art and hunt for bugs. Perfect for a family adventure in the great outdoors.
