Charming village excellent location, quiet, cottage takes u back in time. Ext comfortable huge bed, super log burner + pretty v useable garden. Cd imagine that parking close to the property in peak season might be tricky but church bells do not disturb even with windows open. Pls note there is a washing machine (not listed in spec)

A beautifully clean and comfortable cottage on a pretty quiet road near the church. The kitchen was well thought out and the garden was secluded and secure - perfect for our little dog. The sitting room was very comfortable and it was lovely to be able to light the wood burner after a day out walking. Upstairs the bedroom had an extremely comfortabRead morele super king size bed and it was lovely to hear the chimes of the church bells. A perfect position to explore the area. We loved beaminster too! Hide

Bell Cottage, Beaminster was delightful, very clean, tidy, well appointed, comfortable, quiet and warm. We had a most enjoyable week there in September 2020. There is a attractive little garden that we appreciated with comfortable seats and a table and chairs.

We've been to this cottage before and love the relaxing feel of it. It is ideally situated for visits to Lyme Regis, Weymouth, etc., and also lots of picturesque walks nearby. Also, if you want the best fish and chips, visit The Hive on the Beach at Burton Bradstock. Even I loved them, and I'm not really a fan of chips.

Gorgeous cottage right in centre of the village by the church and market square. Extremely clean, lovely soft sofas and cosy throws and fabulous super king sized bed. Lovely to hear church bells and see horses riding past the window. Fab to have enclosed garden with comfy sun chairs and for our doggy. Wonderful walks on the doorstep - recommend theRead more 1 Mike walk to the New Inn in Stoke Abbott and Ollerod.

If you want a small quirky cottage in the middle of Beaminster, close to all the towns facilities then choose this. We have rented the cottage for several years and enjoy it but it is not suitable for anyone with mobility issues.

Small but perfectly formed accommodation for a couple. Well equipped with everything you could reasonably need. Lovely private and peaceful garden. Located in a very quiet street close to church but 2 minutes walk to centre of Beaminster and the shops. Cant recommend it highly enough.

Delightful cottage. Garden was a real bonus. Bed was very comfortable. The stairs are 'unusual' and someone with mobility problems would find them difficult. Parking can be an issue, but it did not spoil our holiday. People in Beaminster were lovely and friendly

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
