Discover Dorset – Farmhouses and Cottages


SKU: DOR-Bk34 Category:


No buildings in Dorset enjoy greater affection or exert a stronger hold over the popular imagination than its farmhouses and cottages. Some are thatched and timber-framed, others cob, chalk or flint.

The earliest are medieval, whilst the Prince of Wales’s urban ‘village’ of Poundbury underlines the ways in which the traditional architecture of Dorset’s farmhouses and cottages continues to shape the future character of the county.
