BridgeHouse Beaminster - Luxury Hotel in Dorset
BridgeHouse Beaminster is a stylish, family run, country town hotel perfectly placed to explore West Dorset’s relatively undiscovered rolling hills, dramatic cliff-tops and fossil filled beaches. Nestled in Hardy country and on the doorstep of the spectacular Jurassic Coast, it’s no surprise that local food is always high on the agenda.
13th century BridgeHouse has always enjoyed making the most of Dorset’s wonderfully lush and abundant produce. The launch of the Beaminster Brasserie within the hotel with wonderful alfresco dining overlooking the walled garden – is a fabulous complement to the hotel’s 2 Rosette restaurant.
While the BridgeHouse’s origins are Medieval, every room has been brought into the 21st century but without compromising the building’s inherent magic. Frette linen, Molton Brown and complimentary Wi-Fi all come as standard in every bedroom. Originally built as a priest’s house, each room has its own distinct style and personality – a unique blend of ancient and modern BridgeHouse is quietly chic, relaxed and an unpretentious alternative to chain hotels, popular with everyone from nature lovers and fossil hunters to foodies, families and romantics alike.
Conference Facilities - The BridgeHouse Beaminster
BridgeHouse is ideal for smaller conferences and business meetings where privacy is at a premium. Overlooking the walled garden, the conference room accommodates up to 30 delegates theatre style with break-out rooms available.

'Mastercrafts' Woodland Workshop - Woodcarving For All
Guy Mallinson runs a simply amazing woodcarving course in magical woodland near the hotel. Whether it's carving a bowl, totem pole or making a rustic chair, it's an unforgettable experience. Courses run for 2 or 5 days. Children can also join Guy - featured on BBC2's 'Mastercrafts series - for a single day. Courses run from April to November. Having created her own 'rustic' bowl from a fallen tree with Guy, Jo can personally recommend this to all: 'It's not just about creating something very organic from scratch. It's the whole experience of working, eating and 'living' in a totally idyllic corner of West Dorset. After a hard day's carving, the BridgeHouse is the perfect retreat where anyone on one of Guy's courses can nurse sore hands, enjoy a hard earned meal and good night's rest as well as receive a 10% discount on all B&B rates subject to terms & conditions.
