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.

From the lounge you can step out onto the sunny, south-facing balcony where you can enjoy an al fresco meal. Parking is available for one small car in the garage, with additional parking for one car with a parking permit.
