Tarrant Monkton is a small thatched Dorset hamlet nestling in the Tarrant Valley, surrounded by some of the most spectacular countryside in England, which has changed little since it was immortalised in the novels of Thomas Hardy at the turn of the 19th century. The village has the Tarrant river running through it, with a picturesque ford that you can drive through on your way to Taddlestones cottage.
