700-year-old BridgeHouse is a magical, Dorset country house hotel full of character - the product of generations of history passing through its doors. Originally a home for a dozen priests, the hotel now has its own unique, boutique style, sympathetic to its heritage as well as contemporary comfort.

The aim is to create an unpretentious home from home in a relaxed modern way. We provide luxury hotel accommodation with every bedroom decorated in its own individual style. Each has refurbished bathrooms some with romantic, stand-alone baths, Molton Brown toiletries, crisp white Frette linen and free wi-fi as standard. The public rooms reflect the building’s history from Medieval to Georgian panelled dining room to alfresco dining area set within a child and pet friendly, private walled garden.

Unique Location

BridgeHouse is flanked by the River Brit and is at the heart of Beaminster - one of the most perfectly sited of all Dorset towns – with its quaint shops and tea rooms. Deep in Thomas Hardy's Wessex and close to many locations featured in Far From the Madding Crowd, the hotel is also on the doorstep of a World Heritage Site - The Jurassic Coast, with its 95 miles of unspoilt coast, crammed with 185 million years of fossil history. BridgeHouse shares the same stretch of the River Brit made famous by Channel 4's "River Cottage" series, surrounded by some of Dorset's most spectacular countryside with excellent golf, shooting & fishing available locally. Nearby is the bustling market town of Bridport and the quirky fishing harbour at West Bay (Broadchurch).

Dorset Wedding Venue

BridgeHouse is a prime venue for winter or summer weddings with fine dining in the award winning restaurant and accommodation for 30 guests. The hotel is described as one of the most romantic in Dorset and has recently been voted one of MSN's Top Ten Wedding Venues in the UK & Ireland as well as an Editor's Choice for a wedding venue by the Good Hotel Guide.

Our Welcome

Whether it's a short midweek break, weekend break or longer stay to explore West Dorset’s stunning coastline and superb countryside or whether you come simply for fabulous food and a relaxing chair by a log fire, we look forward to welcoming you.
