  • Great for walking and cycling at the heart of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site

Property code: DC024

Beautifully modern three-storey town house just 500 yards from the sandy beach at West Bay. Ideal for families with a convenient location across from a children’s playground.

Just a stroll from the beach at West Bay, this modern home is the perfect choice for family holidays by the sea. Arranged over three floors, the property boasts a modern kitchen/diner opening onto the garden, spacious lounge with gas fire and sunny rear courtyard with al fresco dining area. When you’re not busy making skimming stones, tucking into a delicious portion of fish and chips or walking the South West Coast Path, burn off steam with the family in the children’s playground at the end of the road.

Prepare and enjoy delicious family meals in the sunny kitchen/diner, which is finished with modern white units, wood effect flooring and a door opening onto the garden for an al fresco feel in the summer. Afterwards, sink into one of the comfortable sofas in the lounge next door, where you will also find a gas fire set into a delightful fireplace and a TV. Upstairs, this property’s three bedrooms are light, airy and tastefully decorated to ensure a restful night’s sleep for all. Stepping outside, the sunny courtyard garden is surrounded by beautiful flower beds, shrubs and trees, with a disposable BBQ area for those hazy summer afternoons. There is allocated parking for two cars.

Only 500 yards from this property’s front door is the stunning shingle and pebble beach at West Bay. Stretching all the way to the Isle of Purbeck (18 miles), it offers wonderful walking, watersports and fossil hunting. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, stop for a bite to eat at one of the town’s award-winning restaurants, welcoming pubs or casual cafes or head inland to browse the independent shops at nearby Bridport (1.5 miles).

This cottage is ideally located a short walk from West Bay shops, pubs and cafes. There is a small playground within sight of the house and a much larger, well equipped one 5 minutes walk away so it is ideal for primary school age children.

Helen provides essential supplies so there is nRead moreo need to bring tea or coffee and there is a bottle of milk and a bottle of wine in the fridge. She also makes a cake to eat on arrival.

The owners have taken time and trouble to furnish the property to a high standard and the week spent there was very comfortable with lots of little touches such as home baked cake to greet you. The cottage is very well situated on a quiet estate within a 10 minute stroll to the harbour and the nearest convenience store.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
