orchard.jpgHembury Mill is situated in a secluded and peaceful setting, within a sheltered valley on the Eastern outskirts of Askerwell, close to Eggardon Hill. Apart from Hembury House amd Hembury Barn, it stands alone along a private unmade track, away from the main round and is surrounded by open countryside, in a area of outstanding natural beauty. Only 1/2 mile from Askerwell and pub.

Jurassic coast

Jurassic_Coast.jpgThe Village of Askerswell has a village hall, church and public house. The market town of Bridport is only 5 miles away and is the gateway to the Jurassic coast. The town has a range of business, professional and shopping facilities, together with a twice weekly market. There is also a thriving arts centre and leisure centre with swimming pool.


Within easy reach is the West Dorset coastline with world famous heritage status. The villages of Burton Bradstock and West Bay both have good bathing beaches.

Askerswell is about 11 miles from the County town of Dorchester. The popular resorts of Weymouth and Portland (where some of the 2012 Olympics will be held) is approximately 17 miles away. To the west of Askerswell after West Bay are the famous fossil beaches of Charmouth and Lime Regis.


Very good fishing can be found from boats at West Bay, Weymouth and Lime Regis. Shore fishing is excellent all along the 17 miles of Chesil Beach and only a few minutes away from the cottage at Burton Bradstock.


Dorset is a walker's paradise with over 300 coastal and countryside paths to choose from. There is a delightful walk of varied scenery and interest right in our adjacent field which takes you to the top of Eggardan Hill. Here you can take in the amazing views across the 'Hardy' countryside and out to sea from the iron age hill fort.


As you can see from our map below, we are surrounded by countryside!
