About this spot
Puddletown Forest is one of several conifer plantations that took over much of the Dorset heathland just after the war. The forest is located just west of the River Piddle and village of Puddletown and is also home to Thomas Hardy’s cottage, located on the western fringes. During late spring and early summer the flowering pinks of the invasive Rhododendron shrub take over swathes of the forest, making beautiful subjects and adding colour to the forestscapes.
