The Bridge House Hotel is a 3 Star Metro Hotel situated on the eastern edge of Bridport town centre next to the River Asker and gardens which follow the river's course. It is a town house built in 1760 to accommodate a religious order of dissenting ministers. Only recently converted to a hotel in the 1980's it still contains many interesting features and character.

Bridport is an ideal centre for a touring holiday. It is a market town of Saxon origin with exceptionally wide streets. The Bridport Museum in South Street has exhibits illustrating the history of the town and locality including its archaeology and geology.

Market days are Wednesday and Saturday. One and a half miles south of the town is the quaint harbour of West Bay with its shingle beaches under towering cliffs and a small promenade and is the starting point of Chesil Beach which runs all the way to Portland. Facilities exist in the vicinity for Golfing Fishing (both sea and fresh water) Riding Boating Walking etc.

All rooms have full en-suite facilities and Wi-Fi access; the lounge offers quiet elegance for relaxation whilst the Drawing Room offers the facility to invite conversation for residents and invited friends. A Cellar bar complements the traditional ambience of the hotel with over 30 worldwide wines available by the glass. The many excellent town restaurants all within walking distance offer a range of cuisines to suit every palate and pocket.

We are open throughout the year offering short breaks and weekly holidays.

Battle of Eddington

King Alfred of Wessex, later to become known as Alfred the Great, defeated a Danish force led by Guthrum, at Eddington, in Wiltshire. Alfred was aided by men from Somerset, Hampshire, and Wiltshire. According to peace terms drawn up at Wedmore, Guthrum agreed to be baptised and withdraw his forces to the East, forming The Danelaw, where Danish rule held sway, while Alfred controlled the west of England.

This king led the English to triumph at Crecy in 1346
