Situation And Amenities

Hemplands is set at the heart of the popular and picturesque village of Netherbury. The village has a thriving community benefitting from a newly renovated village hall and the beautifully positioned St Mary's Church. The hall holds many activities to cater to all ages of the community and the historic Church has a font that dates back to the late 12th Century, the current building thought to have been predated by a much earlier structure. Netherbury nestles along the Brit Valley, offering many beautiful walks and bridleways, perfect for the outdoor enthusiast. The village hosts the renowned NGS Netherbury Open Gardens when many of the local horticulturists open their gardens to the public. Historic Beaminster, Hardy's 'Emminster', is a short distance away offering convenience and bespoke shopping, as well as a number of renowned popular restaurants and brasseries, a leisure centre, a lovely local museum and primary and secondary schooling.

Approximately 3 miles to the south is the vibrant market town of Bridport which has been described by many as 'Notting Hill on Sea'. Bridport has a twice weekly market as well as regular farmers' and vintage markets. The town offers a range of shops and services such as restaurants and hotels, a renowned art centre, a cinema, leisure centre, supermarkets, a museum and a number of sought after primary schools and secondary schooling. The quaint fishing village of West Bay with its pretty harbour, shops, cafés, pubs and art galleries can be found further to the south with easy access to the beaches and many beautiful coastal walks. The area forms a part of the Jurassic Coast, World Heritage Site and benefits from the impressive backdrop of the dramatic West Cliff with lovely bathing and fishing beaches. West Dorset Golf Club is only a short drive away and the harbours at West Bay and Lyme Regis can provide moorings for sailing enthusiasts who will also be interested in the forthcoming Olympic sailing events being hosted at the nearby Weymouth.
