Offering cosy and comfortable family accommodation, this light and welcoming first-floor holiday apartment is perfectly situated in a fantastic location close to the bustling harbour in West Bay.

West Bay, made famous by the BBC series Broadchurch, is known for its colourful harbour, expanse of beaches and majestic cliffs. Traditional food huts selling a range of seaside fare overlook the harbour and there are many other choices of eateries and bars, some of which also have waterside views. Boat trips can be taken from West Bay to Lyme Regis, as well as fishing trips for fishing enthusiasts. Why not leave the car behind and take a half hour walk along the river passed Palmers Brewery and into the popular market town of Bridport, which is just a couple of miles away. The pretty town offers plenty of great places to eat and drink, as well as markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and a thriving selection of boutiques selling antiques and vintage curios, should you wish to seek out some treasures. There are several glorious beaches nearby including Eype, Seatown, Charmouth, Hive Beach and Chesil Beach. Part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, the coast is perfect for family holidays, fossil-hunting, fishing and diving. Heading inland there are many places of interest including Forde Abbey, the Kingston Russell Stone Circle, Eggardon Hill, Lewesdon Hill and Lambert’s and Coney’s Castle.

On entering this bright and attractive property you can leave coats, boots and beach gear in the hall before heading up the first-floor apartment. Here you will find the welcoming and cosy lounge/diner which is a lovely space to unwind in at the end of a great day. You can snuggle up and watch a movie on the TV/DVD, catch up with a good book or play one of the board games provided. There is also an inviting dining area situated just by the window. Moving into the kitchen you will find it fully equipped with an oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, dishwasher and a handy dining area perfect for breakfast or for grabbing a snack. Exploring further you will find two charming bedrooms: one double room and a twin. There is also a bathroom complete with a shower over the bath and a WC.

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
