A seaside getaway for two set in beautiful West Bay. Unwind on the beach, take walks on the South West Coast Path or stroll around the harbour before settling down in a local cafe or restaurant.

Situated in an enviable waterfront location in the fishing village of West Bay sits this charming period apartment. Overlooking the harbour and with direct access on to the beach, this property has all that you could need at your fingertips. With a wide choice of attractions and amenities available to you right from your front door, you will be perfectly based to sample some of the finest Dorset has to offer.
