Friendly Local

We visited in May and took advantage of curry and pint offer. Food turned out to be o.k, pretty average but great ambience and very helpful and friendly staff. Lovely location.

Nearest beach

Eype's Mouth Beach (12 miles)

Three miles from Bridport, Eype Mouth Beach is a pebble beach enjoying beautiful views of the Dorset coast. With a steep shelf, caution is advised when swimming as no lifeguards are on duty. Eype is a dog-friendly beach year-round - great news for your four-legged friend - and lots of amenities are available nearby in Lower Eype village.

Good Beach but narrow access lane!

Lovely beach with quite shallow water. Great Cafe off the beach doing takeaway drinks and snacks. Busy when we visited, and there is potential to get stuck coming down the narrow lane, as there are limited passing places.

Gorgeous!

Wonderful beach and location. Unfortunately only viewed from car park as inaccessible for someone with mobility issues like myself-shame as it is special.

Nearest walk

Parrett River Trail (3 ¼ miles)

There are six different sections to this walk, which extend from coast to coast. The walk runs along the river,where you can take in the stunning scenery of the Somerset Levels and witness the abundance of wildlife!

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

Nearest town

Yetminster (4 miles)

A pretty village on the river Wiggle, worth a visit to see the honey coloured limestone cottages. At the heart of the village you'll find the Oak House Stores, a grade II listed building famed for its cheese and local produce.

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.

The White Horse (4 ½ miles)

Located in the centre of this lovely village, you will find a varied menu inspired by French and British classics, great quality food and local cask ales.

Lovely walk to a lovely local Pub

Walked from the front door of the Pump House to The White Horse on a Saturday lunchtime. We had not booked and were very lucky to be seated as they were indeed full, therefore booking is advised.
We had a delicious lunch sat by the open fire, and the two staff were attentive and friendly despite being full. The food was good quality, plentiful, and I would certainly recommend it.

Goose Slade Farm Shop (2 ¾ miles)

Pick up your Christmas goose here. They're on sale from Michaelmas (Sept 24) through to Christmas. The rest of the year you can stock up on other locally grown and produced goodies.
