About the property

Apartment in West Bay, near Bridport, Dorset - Perfect Location for a Wonderful Holiday or Long Weekend Retreat

Perfect location: A tastefully furnished & well-equipped (free unlimited wifi) ground floor apartment in a converted prestigious Grade II Victorian building (see main image) overlooking West Bay harbour in Lyme Bay. West Bay is a small fishing harbour village with two beaches and is a major gateway to the famous Jurassic Coast world heritage site. Take the eastward coastal cliff path to Chesil Beach & Portland, or the west coast path towards Lyme Regis, ideal for fossil hunting. West Bay has also become famous as the film set for the tv series 'Broadchurch'. From the apartment, it's just a minute’s stroll is the fine shingle beach, pubs, shops & amenities and several excellent restaurants. There’s crab fishing, river boating, angling trips, sailing, coastal and country walks, fossil hunting, many local events (like raft racing). 1.5 miles inland is the vibrant market town of Bridport with its arts centre & lots of excellent restaurants & cafes. Weymouth with sailing beaches is about a half hour drive. WE WILL CONSIDER BOOKINGS OF LESS THAN 7 NIGHTS DURING OFF-PEAK SEASON, SO PLEASE SEND AN ENQUIRY. (See 'Additional Pricing Information' below the price rates.)

There's free residents' parking adjacent to the lawn in front of Pier Terrace, on a first come first served basis for residents. West Bay also has several car parks which should have space, so if on the odd occasion you don't immediately get a free space where the residents' parking is, there's always other car parking space nearby. The public car park is free from 6pm - 8am and very cheap at other times.

Please click on 'Facilities' for additional information about the apartment.

About Graham Stone

We love this beautiful part of England and we fell in love with the Bridport area because of the stunning scenery and cliff walks along the wonderful Jurassic heritage coast. Dorset is one of Britain's beautiful counties!

We ourselves live in Surrey, so we are not on location at the property. We have a local lady lives nearby who cleans and is on hand locally if needed.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week in August 2017. The apartment is lovely and spotlessly clean. The owners provided lots of information for days out and places of interest, which we found very helpful. The kitchen/lounge was well equipped and had everything we needed and more. The bedroom was a good size with enough wardrobe space, drawers and storage etc. The bathroom is large and has a powerful shower. There is free parking by the wall facing the property. We only had a problem parking on one day, which was the bank holiday, but as the whole area was packed that day it was not an issue. There are lots of lovely bakeries, a couple of pubs, tea rooms and restaurants within a couple of minutes walk which was great. You really are right in the middle of everything and could not be closer to the beach and pier. We like fishing and caught loads of fish, some of which we cooked in the apartment. There is also a good tackle shop a few minutes walk away. All in all a very good holiday and we will certainly be back.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for such a lovely review and we're really pleased you had such a great time, especially the fishing. It's a great place for fishermen! And we love watching the kids dangling their strings of bait as they fish for crabs by the quayside. Look forward to welcoming you back anytime. Thanks! Graham & Angie

Ground floor flat with steps !!

  • 2 of 5

Very surprised that a ground floor flat had steps down onto the flat then another 7 steps down to the bathroom ! I suffer with arthritis and really struggled in the flat , I think this should be noted for other people booking this flat as much as we love West Bay we wouldn't stay in that flat again

Owner's Response: Hi Elaine - We're sorry you weren't aware there are a few steps in the apartment. It is clearly stated on the main property description page under Facilities for bathroom and again in the Notes section. Otherwise we're pleased you enjoyed your holiday. West Bay is indeed a lovely place to stay.

Great location overlooking the harbour

  • 4 of 5

We had a great few days in West Bay. The apartment was very clean and really well located, with everything we needed. We had fish and chips on the beach, and loved the fact that it was only seconds to the beach and the pub. We visited Lyme Regis on a couple of occasions, but apart from that we stayed in West Bay as there was so much to do.

The apartment is perfect for a getaway.

Great location central to West Bay and the stunning Jurassic coastline.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights as a last minute getaway, booking the day before arriving.

The apartment was clean and had everything we needed for self catering, and very reasonably priced.

We chose to eat out locally in the pubs and cafes in West Bay, recommending the Bridport Arms or The George for a larger menu choice (very generous with their portions)

We went for lovely walks along the coastal paths, providing stunning views across the dramatic coastline.

The apartment is located centrally to all of this and provides a perfect base for a quiet getaway by the sea.

For a more commercial scene then Bridport is just a short drive or within walking distance not more than a couple of miles away & then Weymouth is only about 40mins drive.

We will definitely be back to enjoy West Bay again.

Happy honeymooners

  • 5 of 5

My new wife and I booked seven nights at very short notice due to our marriage just two days before our stay began. We were greeted by the very friendly housekeeper who had placed a lovely box of Thornton's chocolates as a gift for our arrival, which was a lovely surprise and got our week off to a really wonderful start. The apartment was very comfortable in every respect with ample storage for clothes etc in the bedroom, fully equipped kitchen and the bathroom was spacious with a lovely shower with heated towel rack. The beach and harbour are quite literally yards away from the front door, with great food in the hotel across the lawn and the surrounding areas such a Lyme Regis just a short drive away. I would absolutely recommend renting this apartment to anyone, the owners are lovely people who were very accommodating and done everything they could to help make our honeymoon a special memory, and we thank you both so much for all that you done to make our first week as a married couple a happy and special one that we shall always treasure.

Donna and Sean.
