Travelling Through Puddletown, Dorset

If you’ve decided to come on holiday to Dorset, they you’ll most likely be travelling the countryside via car. We all know that in a place like Dorset you’ll be travelling a lot and stopping off at some of the towns and shopping areas. If you want to have a little stroll about the town you could take a stroller and give your child some wheeling fun around the place, but i wouldn’t suggest using a baby carrier. Some of the towns may be a bit large and you’ll struggle to get around if you have to carry your child the whole way.

Puddletown is actually fairly small and travelling around with a well made baby carrier may be possible, you just don’t want to strain yourself. There are some great sights to see in Puddletown, you have the medieval Church of St Mary with it’s historic interiors and monumental brasses, and even 17th century box pews!

If churches aren’t your thing, then you could also visit The Old Manor (reffered to as Ilsington House) which is located on the east side of Puddletown. This building is quite onle and is actually listed as a Grade II Country house. The house is said to be oveer 300 years old. The house has history which you will be able to find once you enter the town.

Puddletown has a lot of things to see, it’s only a small place with a population of around 1000, but a place you don’t want to miss in Dorset.
