Baking is big business nowadays but not everyone has the time to make that perfect loaf or lemon drizzle cake every morning. So we rounded up a few great bakeries across Dorset which will most definitely do the job for you!
EVERSHOT VILLAGE BAKERY

29 East Street, Bridport, DT6 3JX; www.leakersbakery.co.uk
A range of breads, cakes, biscuits and pastries all hand-made and baked on site at this bakery on West Dorset’s Jurassic Coast. On top of that, Leakers also offer a next-day delivery service to most UK addresses.
FAMOUS HEDGEHOG BAKERY
Long Crichel, Wimborne, BH21 5JU; famoushedgehogbakery.co.uk

TOWN MILL BAKERY
2 Coombe Street, Lyme Regis; www.ourbakeries.com
They call themselves ‘The mothership’ with more bakeries in Poundbury, Rousdon and Plymouth too. A slightly different concept is on offer here at Town Mill as they run an honesty system, so you pay when you leave. To find out just why they do that, take a look at their blog here.
