Two Bridport Holiday Cottages at Hembury Mill

Get away from it all in our beautifully restored Mill which still has its original machinery, or the former Cider Barn next door. The holiday accommodation has been sympathetically converted to a high standard, combining historic character with modern convenience and style. Bring your dogs to share a family holiday in our unspoilt and peaceful rural setting.

Our smallholding is tucked away down a private track, near the dramatic slopes of Eggardon Hill with its distant views of the Jurassic Coast and the Marshwood Vale. Both holiday properties have the use of a large outside space and orchard with facilities for ball games, swings and wild play in the stream and pond – perfect for children young and old with an interest in nature and wildlife.

In spring, you can watch the antics of our lambs, and we also have pigs and chickens – just ask if you’d like to help with feeding the animals.

Nearby Askerswell village has a lovely pub for lunches or evening meals, or you can venture to Bridport for more places to eat and shop. Fossil-hunting at Charmouth is another popular local activity, or why not visit the lovely beach at West Bay, made famous by TV’s “Broadchurch”?

DORSET 4 STAR GOLD ACCOMMODATION

Hembury Mill’s two holiday properties have been given a 4 star gold rating by Visit Britain. Cider Barn and The Mill are situated in a secluded and peaceful setting within a sheltered West Dorset valley. Both the Cider Barn and The Mill have been lovingly restored by the current owners, who are dedicated to maintaining and preserving its history.

Free as Birds

It is sad to leave as we have had a fantastic time. Sam and Millie loved playing in the garden - free as birds! The big wheel was great to see spinning. The countryside towns and villages a delight.

A Fantastic Week at Cider Barn

We have had a fantastic week at Cider Barn. The children have loved the swings, slide, treehouse and seeing the ducklings, chickens, ponies and sheep. They have loved playing with the children staying next door. Loved the fire in the evenings and exploring the area during the day.

STAY IN A RESTORED WORKING WATERMILL

The Mill dates back to 1724 and has all the original machinery including two sets of millstones, original scales, and historic artifacts and bygones from the day. In fact, it is the only working watermill with original machinery in Dorset. Set within 7.5 acres with an acre of gardens and an orchard, the location is rural yet within walking distance of the village of Askerswell which has a church and lovely village pub.
