With its beautiful walled garden, the hotel remains at the heart of Beaminster - one of the most perfectly sited of all Dorset towns. Deep in Thomas Hardy’s Wessex, the hotel is also on the doorstep of a World Heritage Site - The Jurassic Coast, with its 95 miles of unspoiled coastline, crammed with 185 million years of fossil history.
An ideal location for walking holidays in Dorset, Bridge House shares the same stretch of the River Brit made famous by Channel 4’s ‘River Cottage’ series and is surrounded by some of Dorset’s most spectacular countryside
The hotel is situated just 50 yards from Beaminster square on the Bridport to Crewkerne road. Here a wealth of small, independent shops, pubs and cafes make it lively and interesting and a great place just to wander, browse and enjoy the traditional, Dorset, hamstone buildings.
The hotel can also arrange local activities and adventures such as fossil hunting along the Jurassic Coastline, Llama Trekking, guided walks through Thomas Hardy country, walks with local poets, RIB hire at Lyme Regis, tour of the local brewery or an evening of wine tasting.
