The Garden House occupies a delightful, private location within the heart of the town and conveniently placed within only a short walk of the amenities and shops in the market square. The house is within the conservation area of Beaminster which is made up principally of period stone buildings, the type for which the town is well known. Beaminster is a charming, small west Dorset town renowned for it's attractive market square with a good range of local shops, restaurants and hotels. The town is surrounded by some of the finest countryside available in the County and includes the well known view points of Pilsdon Pen, Golden Cap and Eggardon Hill Fort, with the area being designated as one of outstanding natural beauty. The coastline, which has recently been declared a World Heritage Site is now known as the Jurassic Coast, and approximately 15 minutes by car. Much of the coastline is either controlled or owned by the National Trust. The market town of Bridport, which has a good variety of shopping, educational and recreational facilities is approximately 6 miles distant. Other local towns of note are the county town of Dorchester and regional Somerset centre of Yeovil. There is a main line rail connection to London Waterloo at Crewkerne and the A303, which provides a route to London/Home Counties can be joined to the north of Yeovil. Sporting facilities in the area include golf courses at West Bay, Dorchester and Lyme Regis; horse racing at Wincanton and water sports on the Dorset coast. The area is also served by independent schools at Perrot Hill and Sherborne.


The Garden House has handsome stone elevations under a slate roof and is believed to date back to the late 18th Century with later additions. The property is Grade II Listed and has excellent spacious accommodation which has recently been the subject of tasteful refurbishment with works carried out having included the replacing of the gas fired boiler and marble flooring in the kitchen, entrance hall and bathrooms.
