the classic guide

A guide to the West Country from the people that know…

Beaminster

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.

Bonny Beaminster

We loved Beaminster and being only a couple of miles from our holiday home, it was ideal. The Greyhound is a friendly, unpretentious pub serving excellent homemade food at great prices. It is an untouched, charming town with independent shops, a refreshing alternative to the usual choices. Loved Cilla and Camilla-beautiful gifts, homewares and wonderful cafe. Definitely worth a visit.

Beaminster

A lovely little Dorset village with some great independant shops and nice places to eat. Small but well worth a visit.
