View Self-Catering Holiday Cottages in Beaminster

Enjoy cottage holidays in Beaminster, a few miles inland from the coast west of Bournemouth. It is a quiet country town that is full of historical interest. It was a Parliamentarian stronghold in the Civil War and consequently was sacked by the Royalists. It is a typical Dorset market town with plenty of stunning listed buildings for you and your family to explore and navigate your way around. A few of these charming buildings are home to Beaminster holiday homes, making a perfect base for your relaxing holiday in Dorset. Enjoy an active day out playing tennis or take a splash in the local pool or for a fresher day out on the water, get involved in the local gig racing and try your hand at an intense bit of rowing across West Bay. There’s also plenty of fishing and crabbing along this striking coastline.
