Welcome to Netherbury Village
Netherbury Village is situated one mile south of Beaminster, five miles north of Bridport and just 7 miles from West Bay (Broadchurch) on the amazing Jurassic Coast.
The Jurassic Coast is a must-visit for anyone interested in geology, history, photography or for just exploring the stunning coastal scenery along the 95-mile beautiful coastal footpath.
You could try some fossil Hunting in Charmouth or Lyme Regis and hopefully be a lucky enough to find your own piece of history.
The village is set in a picturesque valley, surrounded by rolling hills and wrapped around the river Brit.
There is a tremendous community spirit in the village with the Village Hall often having activities and events going on. A community playing field surrounded with woodland walks that flourishes in all seasons.
The village also has a stunning Church dating back to the 12th century! a lovely local pub, The Hare & Hounds in Waytown with fantastic flower Beds
and home grown veg!
Netherbury was also home to Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's original River Cottage. Located in a beautiful little spot on the River side. The House is part of the Slape Manor Estate. It was once the Manor's Game Keepers home.
The Little Village is also lucky enough to have a award winning winery just a few minutes drive away. Furleigh Estates vineyards can be found within the village and to taste its International Award Winning sparkling wines your welcome to go for a tour & tastings.
The village has annual flower shows and a Gardens Open event where a number of the village gardens open to the public under The National Garden Scheme.
The Village has an amazing variety of gardens to view, including four NGS gardens. These are The Mill House, Hatchlands, Slape Manor and Pye's Plot. The Mill House was featured in The Country Life magazine in February 2013, "A river runs through it".
Besides these stars there are about ten other gardens scattered through the village and on the surrounding hills providing a wealth of different styles and sizes. There really is a garden for everyone.
