Hardys Cottage walking trails through Thorncombe Woods
These walking trails take in some of the places that were engrained in the young Thomas Hardy's mind and later translated into the sentences of his writing. There's a pink route taking approximately 15 minutes, a longer blue route and a route for wheelchair access.
You can follow in Hardy's footsteps and explore his beloved landscape with your eyes, ears, nose and hands on this interactive discovery trail. You'll encounter plenty of nature and wildlife along the way.
