Be­fore Thomas Hardy mar­ried Emma Gif­ford, her beau was a cu­rate’s son, who lived on the edge of the vil­lage of St Clether. Hardy de­scribes the mo­ment he pinched the lo­cal maiden in 1871 in his poem The Face at the Case­ment; her for­mer flame gazed out of the win­dow of four-bed­room The Old Vicarage as the lovers de­parted. Sig­nif­i­cantly re­mod­elled and re­dec­o­rated, it comes with five acres, a sep­a­rate barn con­ver­sion, a wooded copse, a stream and a glamp­ing busi­ness. Keller Wil­liams (07989 050429)
