    Bere Regis – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. Dome Sayers
      At the time of the Domesday Book (1086), Bere Regis consisted of; 41 villagers, 30 smallholders, 74 cottagers, 20 slaves, 7 freedmen, 6 swans, 9 cattle, 108 pigs and 800 sheep. There were 111 acres of meadow, 4 leagues of pasture, 3 woodlands and 8 mills. And the village was worth the princely sum of £100.
    2. Well I Never
      There are over 250 wells and boreholes in the village. In 2012 local villager John England wrote a book all about the wells entitled ‘Well, Well, Well’ which can be found in the village shop
    3. Kingsbere
      Thomas Hardy used the village as the inspiration and setting of his novel Tess of the D’ubervilles (although he changed the name to ‘Kingsbere’). The local parish church has memorials to the Turberville family which again were a likely influence on perhaps his most famous work.
    4. Royal Beer
      ‘Regis’ comes from the fact that Bere, which means copse or scrubland, was a royal manor belonging to King John (around 1200 AD) who was a frequent visitor. He paid more visits to some of his other local manors (he had 30 in Dorset alone) and yet none of those got the regal moniker. Later records dating from 1303 to the 16th century show the town was more commonly known as ‘Kingsbere’, so Hardy was right! Up until the 18th century it was more commonly spelt Beer Regis.
    5. Early Bere
      The area was in use since the Neolithic period until the arrival or the Romans in 43AD. Just outside the village is Woodbury Hill, the site of an Iron Age hill fort, the fort was left unoccupied and fell into disrepair but during the Middle Ages it became the site of a popular fair, possibly due to the village’s royal connections.
    6. Is this the real life…
      As far as Bere Regis woodland goes, it’s a kind of magic! The woodland was bought and saved by none other than rock guitarist and Queen legend Brian May. May’s Wood is an area of safe habitat for wildlife which has been carefully planted to help protect and encourage local species to thrive.

    About Bere Regis

    With royal connections, a plethora of wells, an Iron Age hill fort and quiet village life, Bere Regis is a picturesque place with thatched cottages, a stream and all the elements that sing of the English countryside. Just 10 miles from the coast and within easy reach of larger towns (for frequent shoppers), it is a much sought-after location with many desirable properties.


    Two cycle routes run through the village, Purbeck Ride and Lawrence Ride, plus the Jubilee Trail walking route. There are two village pubs for those that like to stay local, although there are plenty of great country pubs to explore in the area. The active local community hold events in Bere Regis which is surrounded by stunning scenery including the wonderfully named Piddle Valley. The village sits within the Higher Hyde Heath Nature Reserve which is a happy hunting ground for twitchers and photographers.


    Where the A31 (to the M27) and A35 (to Bournemouth) meet, although both routes bypass the village itself, Bere Regis sits gently off the beaten track. Wareham Station is 6 miles away, while Dorset’s famous coast is 10 miles to the south. Bournemouth International the closest airport.
