About this location
The Dorset region
More than 42% of Dorset countryside has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so in West Dorset you can lose yourself amongst the peace and tranquility of this unspoilt part of England.
In the heart of Thomas Hardy's country, with lots of charm and numerous activities for the young and the young at heart, West Dorset is fantastic for the older person who just wants to chill in the relaxing West Dorset air but just as invigorating for the the younger generations.
Whether your preference is walking, cycling, horse riding or that idyllic picnic, you will find the perfect activity for you in West Dorset's beautiful countryside.
The jurassic coast is only a few miles from Beaminster, and Lyme Regis and its famous Cobb is only ½ hour away. Why not explore Charmouth and go fon a fossil hunt along its renowned beach.
West Dorset offers so many ancient site to explore: Lambert's Castle, Eggardon Camp, Cerne Giant, Dorchester Maiden Castle, Maumbury Rings, and the Poundbury Camp, and Brownsea Island one of the few remaining red squirels' santuary, to name but a few.
And when you have exercised enough it will be time to enjoy a traditional West Dorset Cream Tea.
With over 200 listed buildings in its historic centre, the tranquil town of Beaminster stands at the head of the Brit Valley and is a walker's paradise.
Beaminster and the surrounding area history is brought to life at the town museum, which holds permanent and seasonal exhibitions all year-round.
Every year the Beaminster Art and Music festival takes place during the last week of June and attracts many celebrities and followers.
A few miles away, the town of Bridport boasts a regular farmers' market, a beer and food festival every year and has even added a September Hat festival to its charm!
Mapperton House, Forde Abbey, Kingston Lacey, Chesil Beach, Abbotsbury tropical garden and the swanery and many, many more are all close to Beaminster and make a great day outing.
The young explorers will enjoy the Tank Museum at Bovington and Monkey World in Longthorns, both near Wareham. Maybe a Llama trek from New House Farm in Beaminster, or an encounter with Dinosaurs at Dorchester Museum.
There is so much to see and do!

"oodles of storage"
The only downside to this property is its location on a busy main road. If we'd thought about it before we booked, we might have missed out on a delightful holiday cottage, so not all bad. We app… More
Thank you for this constructive feed-back. Yes, we are on a main road and unfortunately that particular week it was busier than normal because of local road closures.
The steps are one inch high and are mentioned in the access statement, and we acknowledge the point that it could be awkward for somebody with walking difficulties.

We have returned home again after our second stay at this most wonderful cottage. Everything in the cottage is of a high standard and you could not wish for a better place to spend time in Dorset. We found this 'Gem' quite by chance last year and it was so good we booked for this year before we left! Again we have already booked for next year and look forward to seeing Laurence and Michael again, they are great people and interact with the tenants as much or as little as the tenants are happy with. Teir garden is magnificent and is yours for your stay, and you don't have to get your hands dirty!! If you want the most idilic and high spec place to stay in Dorset, this is the place to be.
Wow! Thank you very much for the glowing review. We look forward to seeing you next year.
