Beautiful walk along the river, taking in some stunning countryside. Beware of the field of bullocks one needs to cross through!

Nearest town

Beaminster (3 ¼ miles)

Beaminster sits at the head of the Britt Valley, through which flows the river of the same name. The countryside here is glorious and a stay in Beaminster would be incomplete without a stroll through the rolling hills that surround the town. For the history buff, playing ‘spot the listed building’ is great fun – even though Beaminster has been devastated by fire no less than three times, the town still lays claim to some 200 listed buildings. The highlight of Beaminster’s calendar is the Festival of Music and Visual Arts, a jamboree of musical, literary and artistic talent including many big names.

Fantastic service

We chose this for Sunday lunch. The food was impressive and good value for money. The service was attentive and helpful without being intrusive. We were very impressed by the overall quality and the beautiful setting.

A good test of a pub is in mid-winter when there are few tourists about. The New Inn manages to attact lots of local residents out of season and that's a good sign. Some lovely walking from/to the pub car park too!

Lovely 18th Century pub set in a very pretty garden with meals served in the bar or dining room. The menu is small and changes daily while the food is freshly cooked by the owner, a professional chef. Very professional and friendly young staff.

The Kingcombe Centre (4 ½ miles)

'The farm that time forgot' uses traditional farming methods to work the land. This environmental study centre is situated in a nature reserve in the heart of West Dorset and offers courses and lectures on the local flora and fauna as well as art and music.

At last our pretty, thatched pub with its lovely garden has the publican it deserves with a young, local couple taking over. The chef has received AA Rosette awards at the other pubs where he has cooked, and his wife ensures there is a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The food is certainly a cut above the usual pub fare, so much so that Dan, the chef has a dedicated army of followers and so booking for a meal is essential. Its not just for diners though. Popping in for a drink is much encouraged and the cottage garden with lovely views makes it the perfect place for a summer pint.

Montacute House (7 ½ miles)

An exceptional Elizabethan house filled with treasures, including 17th Century textile samplers and Elizabethan art. This house featured in the 1995 film ‘Sense and Sensibility’.

Shame.

A lovely house and location . It was a pity it was spoilt by a very heavy handed and hard sell approach in the ticket office to join the N.T. I had to be very persistent to get into the house and gardens without joining up .
Once we had managed to get in we had another issue with an officious lady in the long room who basically told us off for taking the wrong staircase up . It turned out that a rope had not been put in place . How were we to know! Other staff members tried to make up for this and were excellent but the impression overall was poor.

Very interesting

Another West Country gem to consider when in the Somerset or Dorset areas. Although the house was endowed to NT as an empty shell much work has been done by introducing surplus items from other properties and there is a current fascinating exhibition from the National Portrait Gallery which is a must.
