This fabulous third floor penthouse directly overlooks the picturesque working harbour at West Bay and offers stunning views whatever the weather. A truly memorable base for a holiday by the sea in Dorset

This beautifully decorated third-floor penthouse boasts some of the best views in the area. Spectacular 360-degree vistas of West Bay harbour and the Brit Valley can be appreciated from a marvellous wraparound balcony. The property is also ideally located for access to local shops, pubs and cafes, all of which are approximately 100 yards away.

This property is located on the third floor of an apartment building and accessed via lift or staircase up to a foyer from which you enter the penthouse apartment. The hall allows access to each room and has ample space for storing boots and shoes, as well as a cupboard with a washing machine. The open-plan kitchen/dining/sitting room has a wonderful double-height ceiling and floor-to-ceiling picture windows on one side of the room, really opening up the space and letting in waves of natural light. The kitchen has all modern appliances needed for family dining and this open-plan space is decorated in a contemporary style. From the hall, you access two bedrooms, both of which have doors onto the wraparound balcony. One double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with shower and there is also a large family bathroom. Outside, the balcony gives wonderful views of the harbour and coastline.

Exploring West Bay itself, you can wander around the working fishing harbour and have a spot of lunch at one of the many cafes. If you’re feeling adventurous you can take the opportunity to catch some mackerel for your dinner on one of the sea fishing excursions. A little further afield, Lyme Regis is a popular destination with its wealth of shops, cafes, restaurants and museums of all descriptions.

Basically, 5 star all the way, sometimes you don't really have to say anymore, clean, modern, private parking (bit tight), the 360 degree views, overlooking the harbour, sea and it's next to the hills which I love to run in, even the Sun shone most of the time.

Superb property. Very large, light and airy. Despite being harbour side it was very quiet. Excellent views from the balcony over the very busy harbour. Property is equipped to a very high level. We liked the multiple seating options. You could eat at the dining table or the very cute breakfast bar set up to overlook the harbour. Great to leave the Read morecar in the underground car park and just walk from the property too. We would love to go back, hopefully we will. Hide

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.
