The Kersley-Allinson family live in Hertfordshire but regularly visit Dorset to see family. Oliver and Samuel love learning about how Hardy lived in the nineteenth century.

‘Young explorers learning what it would have been like for young Thomas Hardy growing up at the cottage and the type of activities he might have been expected to undertake.’
