Hardy Chalet – Scandinavian Style Self-Catering Accommodation for Six Guests

Hardy chalet (named after Dorset’s most loved author ‘Thomas Hardy’),  provides spacious accommodation for six people. Similar in style to Wessex Chalet, this well appointed chalet provides a quiet retreat from normal everyday life. On a clear day, from the upstairs master bedroom you can just about see King Alfred’s Tower in the distance which  is situated near the National Trust’s Stourhead.
