Cosy Apartment in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Great location, right next to the beach! Apartment was very clean and well-equipped with everything we needed. Host was very helpful with instructions and directions, but very easy to find. Lots of info about things to do in Dorset. Very comfortable bed and noise free room for plenty of good sleep after trekking around all day. Spacious and great views… We can highly recommend this place for a relaxing few days away.

pier terrace

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little apartment with great views of the bay. Fully equipped with everything needed for a self catering holiday although plenty of places to eat out..Rachels fish hut on the harbour is a must for sea food lovers and the george in the bay do the most amazing homemade pie I've ever eaten. Milk wine and biscuits left for us when we arrived was much appreciated . Would recommend this apartment to any couple seeking a relaxing sea side well valued break. In a beautiful part of the country.

Just wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is great: enough space for two, cosy, good bed (!), views of the sea from all windows, quiet (apart from the sea). There is only one house between the apartment block and the beach.

The coast is spectacular; the coast path goes conveniently through West Bay. West Bay is surprisingly quiet - nearly no 'amusement' stuff, but several nice pubs, restaurants and cafés. Parking can be a little bit tough at weekends, because the hotel and apartment block car park is often full, but we had to use the paid parking only for one morning (50p/hour, nights are free, can be paid in the evening). There is a regular bus service to and from Bridport and Lyme Regis, unfortunately only until 7.45 pm, but taxi fare from Bridport is ok (6 L).

We had a wonderful and very happy week there und would love to come back!

harbour

  • 4 of 5

The flat was ideally situated in the quiet harbour of West bay overlooking the sea, harbour and mountains. The apartment is on the fourth/top floor...and we found it to be clean, compact and well equipped. The flat has a tastefully decorated bedroom, new kitchen and bathroom. (which there are sadly not enough photos of). We arrived to a bottle of wine, biscuits, milk and fresh flowers...which was very kind and welcoming. The only down side would be that the couch and TV were a bit out dated and in need of replacing. And black out curtains were needed in the bedroom...as the one small blind did not cover the three windows. We also struggled to park on a few occasions as it was bank holidays and the schools were off. The owner did inform us this might happen and you can pay 50p to park opposite (which is also free 6pm-8am). But we found this apartment to be overall good value for money considering the quality and location. We also found the surrounding towns of Bridport and Lyme Regis to be beautiful to explore as well as the coastal walks and beach strolls.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Emily. I am glad you were happy with the apartment. I have taken on board your comments about regarding the TV and sofa, and will take a look at what we can do to improve things. We are actually on the 3rd floor not the fourth, and its just our attic above for walk in storage. I have recently taken more pics which I will post on the site soon, it is a difficult place to do justice to and I am not a talented photographer! Blinds /curtains are very difficult to fit to theses windows , but as we are on 3rd floor and not overlooked at all we have not worried , no one else has mentioned it , but we will look into this too. best wishes Sooty

Great place to unwind from busy life

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing stay, great location with local food, lots of walks and friendly town. 50 meters from the beach and a hill challenge, once you get to the top lovely views of bridport, the sea and beyond.Its a must stay if you want a quiet sleepy location for you and your partner. Its a wind down hot spot. A breath of fresh air.

Car: not necessary

Pier Terrace occupies a stunning position in the heart of West Bay adjoining the harbour and beach. West Bay is a thriving coastal resort with excellent amenities including public house, post office, general store, fishmonger butcher, restaurants and church - all arranged around the picturesque historic working harbour, which has recently been upgraded with a new outer harbour. The famous 'Riverside Restaurant' is only a short walk from the apartment. This has established itself as one of the country's leading seafood restaurants and takes pride in serving fresh fish. Their changing daily menu reflects the local landings, much of which is caught off the Dorset coast. The superb coastline is designated a World Heritage Site (the only one in the UK). Nearby is an 18 hole cliff top golf course and the historic market town of Bridport is within a couple of miles. The larger centres of Dorchester and Weymouth are both about a half an hours driving distance with mainline railway services.
