Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The BridgeHouse Hotel in Dorset has been named as one of Britain's 50 cosiest hotels by The Daily Telegraph, which praises its "snug bar, inglenook fireplaces, oak beams and handsome bedrooms".

The 700-year-old property is set by the River Brit in Beaminster formerly a priest's house. The property has won a Fabulous Food Award from Alastair Sawday's Special Places to Stay which sums it up nicely -- "a chic hotel in a pretty country town with excellent food, stylish bedrooms and hills all around for deep country walks". 

Dine in the 2-AA-Rosette Beaminster Brasserie, which serves classic British dishes and focuses on local produce -- think home-made bread, Dorset lamb and Lyme Bay seafood. Menus vary depending on the season and availability of produce. During warmer evenings the brasserie menu is available -- perfect for dining on the terrace or in the Sun Room conservatory.

All of the 13 individually designed ensuite bedrooms come with free Wi-Fi, Italian linen, guest robes and tea and coffee-making facilities. Deluxe, Four Poster and Superior rooms are in the main house and most Superior rooms have garden views. In 1995 the old stables were converted into the CoachHouse, a detached building at the rear of hotel offering country-style accommodation. There are two family suites and four pet-friendly bedrooms.

The hotel is less than 15-minutes' drive from the Jurassic Coast -- where "Broadchurch" was filmed -- which spans 95 miles and is peppered with geological gems. The hotel is the perfect location for walking holidays and there's plenty to do in the local area. Lyme Regis, a picturesque seaside town set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is a 30-minute drive away. Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove are a 50-minute drive away.

The room was very noisy. There was a family with children staying in the room above. You could hear everything. We were awake from 5am because of the noise.
