Stoke Water House is set within well maintained grounds of approximately 3 acres with a mixture of lawned areas, mature trees, shrubs, a stream and pond.
Stoke Water House occupies a delightful and peaceful setting yet within only about 1 mile of the pretty town of Beaminster. The immediate locality is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the property is surrounded by open countryside with easy access. Beaminster has a good range of facilities including shops, churches, post office and restaurants centred around a historic square.
The village of Stoke Abbott is also nearby with church and popular public house. The market town of Bridport is only about 8 miles to the south and at West Bay there is access to the beautiful World Heritage Jurassic Coast and an 18 hole golf course. Crewkerne is nearby with a main line rail service to London. The larger centres of Dorchester and Yeovil are also within easy reach.
From Bridport take the A3066 to Beaminster and continue past The Square. At the mini-roundabout take the first exit signed Broadwindsor and after the shop turn left signed Stoke Abbott. After about ¾ mile the entrance to Stoke Water House will be found on the right.
