Welcome to watermeadowhouse.co.uk. We provide Self-Catering and Bed & Breakfast accomodation for visitors to our lovely county around our family dairy farm in the village of Hooke, West Dorset. Please look around and find out more about Hooke, Bridge Farm and West Dorset.


You are sure of a peaceful time in our lovely village. Hooke nestles in a valley between two ridges of the famous Dorset hills, close to several major roads but with very little traffic other than the odd tractor. There is plenty to see if you decide to walk around: our charming ancient Church of St Giles and Hooke Court, both dating from the 15th century; Hooke Woods, which in spring is carpeted with bluebells and has many beautiful paths to wander; and the river and several picturesque ponds and lakes. As well as an abundance of common British wildlife and familliar farm animals, you will see ponies and donkeys grazing and, if you are lucky, may even see a kingfisher. In addition, some of West Dorset's finest views are waiting for you as you drive to Beaminster or Bridport - in particular, the Iron Age hill fort on Eggardon Hill has spectacular views over the county and is a good destination for walkers.

Hooke is very conveniently placed for most of West Dorset's attractions. The pretty town of Beaminster is only a few miles away (very convenient for shopping), and there is much to discover in the towns of Bridport and Dorchester which are both within twenty minute's drive. A traditional British seaside experience is also close at hand: West Bay, Bridport's harbour, is a popular destination, as is Weymouth, a pleasant half-hour's drive along the breathtaking coast road.

You're guaranteed a warm welcome from Hooke when you come to stay!
