Nestled in a bowl-shaped valley where the River Brit drifts lazily by, Beaminster is wonderfully removed. While sufficiently off the beaten track that you’re unlikely to wake up to find traffic jams winding post your driveway, Beaminster is reassuringly close to large towns with all the big-name shops and brands. For those that prefer to shop local, support small business and save on emissions, there is plenty right on your doorstep.
There is also a good calendar of annual events plus a number of clubs and societies for those that like to try something new.
History buffs can learn up on the story of Beaminster at the town museum. Once a year the area is brightened by the arrival of the Beaminster Festival that attracts musicians from across the country at a large picnic in the park. The town sits within the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are certainly plenty of places for walking, riding and stables. Golfers can get into the swing at the nearby Bridport and West Dorset Golf Course.
This is a rural community and you are in an area where you’re more likely to be held briefly by a tractor than sitting for hours in gridlock. The A37 that sits to the East of the town is the main artery connecting Yeovil and Dorchester. Maiden Newton is the nearest train station a 15-minute drive away. There are bus routes and the closest airport is Exeter.
