Bakers Arms Cottages

Tucked away in the heart of West Dorset are two beautiful cottages, nestled within two acres of the owner's grounds where you'll find secret romantic gardens, a stunning orchard, and the relaxing backdrop of the River Parrett flowing through, in the quiet village of South Perrott. This area is perfect for a group of friends or small family gathering to take a break from the stresses of daily life and discover all of Dorset's natural wonders and historic attractions, with the properties themselves keeping their original character, and boasting a rich history dating back to being an old quarry in 1680. Take a leisurely stroll via one of the nearby footpaths to the charming village of Mosterton where you can stock up on self-catered essentials at the village shop and take your pick from fresh pastries at the in-store bakery, as well as a welcoming local pub where you can take a break from the kitchen and enjoy delicious pub grub. Explore the bustling market town of Beaminster with a wealth of independent shops, pubs, restaurants, and museums, or travel along footpaths to the charming villages of Chedington and North Perrott, doing a pub crawl of the local ales. Discover the striking landscapes of Dorset's AONB and take in the surrounding nature on one of many walking and cycling trails at Beaminster Downs, Lewesdon Hill, Marshwood Vale, Powerstock Forest, and Eggardon Hill, as well as the 625-mile-long path of The Monarch's Way. Travel further afield and indulge in a day at the seaside at one of Dorset's many popular beaches for a classic day at the seaside, choosing between West Bay, Hive Beach and so many more along the glorious South West Coastal Path. The Bakers Arms cottages offer a delightful base for a memorable trip away with your loved ones to this fantastic Dorset location.

The village of Mosterton is a thriving community with good local facilities, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the glorious West Dorset countryside, close to the Somerset border, just 3 miles from Crewkerne and less than 5 miles from Beaminster. The village is perfectly situated to explore this superb rural area, beloved of Thomas Hardy, and in recent times often featured in the River Cottage TV series. There are great walks to be had locally along the Monarch Way, whilst Forde Abbey and Cricket St Thomas Wildlife Park are both easily accessible. Within 10 miles can be found the historic rope making town of Bridport, or at West Bay take a sea fishing trip or go fossil hunting on the scenic Jurassic Coast. An ideal base for an interesting and relaxing holiday.
