Beer Hackett is a small village and civil parish in west Dorset, England, situated 3 miles (4.8 km) southwest of Sherborne and 5 miles (8.0 km) southeast of Yeovil. The civil parish includes the small settlement of Knighton to the east. Dorset County Council's 2013 mid-year estimate of the population of the civil parish is 100.[1]
