  • “Bear’s Cottage is a beautifully converted barn, and Gill is the perfect host.”

    It has everything that we required to enjoy a birthday celebration in comfort with family. The location is ideal, in a lovely village close to the village pub, with the charming town of Sherborne nearby. The pub provides a good pint and excellent “pub grub”. For more special occasions the Rose and Crown in another village close by provides fine dining. Overall a great place to spend time in a lovely part of England, and I would recommend Bear’s Cottage to everyone.

About the location

YETMINSTER

Beer Hackett 1.7 miles; Closworth 3 miles; Sherborne 6 miles

Yetminister village was built almost entirely of honey coloured limestone. This comes partly from the age of its houses, many of which date back to the 17th century but also from its lack of major through traffic. Yetminster Fair has a claim to be one of the oldest street fairs in Dorset, having started in the 13th century under a charter granted to the Bishop of Salisbury. There was a gap after the 1947 fair until it was re-started in 1975 and now it is firmly established on the second Saturday in July. The fair is not only one of the oldest but one of the biggest fairs in the Wessex area. The village church of St Andrews has a 300 year old faceless clock which chimes the national anthem six times a day. Yetminster is served by the White Hart public House and a village shop. The ancient town of Sherborne lies on the delightful banks of the River Yeo set amidst glorious unspoilt countryside and boasts many picturesque buildings, ancient Inns and quaint shops.
