This beautiful little cottage is in an idyllic country setting, with the meandering River Brit flowing either side.

It has a small enclosed and private terraced garden and is set near the owner's home and was formerly the town's steam sawmill, in the picturesque market town of Beaminster. Lovingly converted and restored to retain its unique character, the property also benefits from all the modern conveniences you will require, along with a wood burner for those colder days. This attractive, traditional Dorset market town, with pubs, convenience store, specialist shops and restaurants is set in the heart of stunning countryside, with registered walks from the door, perfect for dog walkers, ramblers or trail cyclists.

The cottage is only a stone's throw from the famous Mapperton House with its beautiful gardens and next door to Parnham House and its Deer Park and only 10 minutes from the coast at West Bay.

About Dorset (BEAMINSTER)

There's plenty going on in the pretty market town of Beaminster. Designated an important area of conservation, and also famous as the setting for Thomas Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles, this is an idyllic place to stroll and shop - and being located at the head of the River Brit's peaceful Hidden Valley, a memorable area known for its wildlife and water mills, means no shortage of glorious and tranquil walks to enjoy.

The children and animal lovers amongst you might enjoy a gentle donkey-trekking day, complete with picnic or pub lunch en-route, or for something completely unique, how about a trek with llamas and alpacas? Mapperton House and Gardens is a must-visit, with three levels of Italian garden, fishponds, orangery and summerhouses, and surrounded by a wooded landscape with exceptional views and a licensed cafe for when you're ready for some downtime.

When it comes to food there's a plethora of fine choice in Beaminster, whether it's a spot of sea bass at the award-winning Bridge House Hotel or a good, home-made pub lunch at The Hare and Hounds with its gorgeous views of the Brit Valley. And if you really want to get out and about, there are events aplenty: Beaminster Festival of Music & The Arts, dog shows, food fairs, Easter trails and performances of Shakespeare to name just a few!
