A stylish town centre apartment, located a short distance from the beach at West Bay and all the amenities the unique town of Bridport has to offer, it’s the perfect spot for a relaxing break.

This property is a fantastic two-bedroom apartment in the centre of Bridport, marrying the historic with contemporary in a former industrial building. Bright and airy with heaps of style, this first-floor flat is ideal for couples or small families who are looking for a getaway to the stunning Jurassic Coast while still being at the heart of a bustling town. Beautiful West Bay Beach, made famous by ITV’s Broadchurch, is just 3 miles away, and the pretty Borough Gardens are less than 200 metres from the property - a perfect place for a peaceful stroll or picnic.

Climb the external staircase to the shared entrance and front door, then head to the end of the hallway to a spacious open-plan living area. Classy grey hues with splashes of colour make it a pleasure to relax at the breakfast bar or on the sofa, throwing the doors out to the Juliet balcony open, to watch the world go by. At bedtime, head to one of the tranquil bedrooms decorated to ensure you have a great night’s sleep; wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day, cooking up a tasty breakfast in the kitchen to keep you going on long coastal walks.

Head less than 100 metres from your door to Bridport Museum, where you can see amazing fossils from the Jurassic Coast, or take a look at the mystical Roman jewellery. There’s a pub just 160 metres from the property, but there are also plenty of others to choose from in the town. Just down the road Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens (10 miles) boasts plants from all over the world and has a children’s play area, while Chesil Beach is just half a mile further where you can join the South West Coast Path to take in some stunning scenery.

A good location, right in the centre of Bridport, although that meant it was sometimes a bit noisy for us later in the evening. We found a car park not too far away (Tannery Road) that only cost 16 for the whole week and always had a space when we needed one.

Location

Map
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.
