Few authors have such strong associations with the natural and cultural heritage of their local area as Thomas Hardy. Located within the rolling Dorset Hills is ‘Hardy Country’, where the famous author and poet spent much of his life and where he drew inspiration for his work. We combine our exploration of the landscapes and places Hardy called home with a stay on the Isle of Wight. Known as the ‘Garden Isle’, the island is a haven of old-fashioned charm, Victorian gems and enchanting gardens that in turn have inspired many poets and artists through history.
