Harbourside Ground Floor Apartment CloseTo Beach & Stunning Coastal Cliff Walks

Overview

Property

Updated: 30-Nov-2016
Apartment in West Bay, Bridport, Dorset, England - Perfect Location For A Wonderful Holiday Or A Long Weekend Retreat.

A tastefully furnished apartment in a converted prestigious Grade II listed Victorian building overlooking West Bay harbour in Lyme Bay. West Bay is a small fishing harbour resort between two beaches and is a major gateway to the famous Jurassic Coast world heritage site. Take the eastward coastal cliff path to Chesil Beach and Portland or the west coast path towards Lyme Regis, ideal for fossil hunting. and it has also become famous from being the film setting for the tv series 'Broadchurch'. 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 and lots of excellent restaurants & cafes. Weymouth and its sailing beaches is about half hour drive. IMPORTANT: FOR STAYS OF LESS THAN A WEEK PLEASE DISREGARD ANY QUOTE AUTOMATICALLY GENERATED BASED ON DAILY RATES AND REFER TO 'NOTES ON PRICES' BELOW THE PRICE RATES. Thanks! Also: Please read 'NOTES' for Facilities as there is additional information about the apartment/parking etc

There is free residents' parking all along the wall by the lawn in front of Pier Terrace which is 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.

About the Owner

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 Apartment for a Super Holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment superbly located to explore both town, country and coast. It is literaly a stone's throw from the beach and spectacular cliff scenery. We found the apartment both comfortable, clean, spacious and quiet and is well equipped. West Doset is beautiful. There is so much to see and do. Too much for our short stay, so we will be planning a return visit.

West Bay apartment

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week in this cosy apartment. It was well-equipped, well-maintained and clean. The location is great, right near the harbour with the beach at the end of the apartment block, so it is perfect for those bracing cliff-top walks. Loads of pubs and places to eat within walking distance make this apartment the perfect choice. We would especially recommend the Station Kitchen for fabulous food at terrific prices!

A lovely place to stay, well-managed by Graham and Angie.

Good as budget accommodation

  • 2 of 5

The building itself is quite interesting and we enjoyed reading up about the history of it. Lovely that you are literally a stone's throw from the beach. The town itself is nice and a short walking distance from bridport, which we enjoyed. The apartment itself was quite disappointing. The bathroom was lovely and spacious, though anyone over 5ft8 may struggle in the shower! The rest of the apartment could do with some TLC, would be nice to have a few more luxurious touches such as nice bedding ,curtains and towels as these were quite old and faded. The Windows are quite high and the only eye height window in the apartment happened to look over the bin complex which was a shame as this would have been a nice harbour view. All in all the apartment did feel like a bedsit, a bit pokey and dark! There are a few steps down to the apartment, so a little annoying for carrying in luggage. Parking was a nightmare as you are not guaranteed a space, the spaces for residents are used by the pub customers, the only other option is a pay and display car park so not ideal. Being an apartment we also experienced noise from the residents above us so not a peaceful break. Disappointing way to spend new year!

Owner's Response: We were disappointed to receive this review which we consider somewhat unfair. The information concerning the main issues eg steps down to apartment, parking, shower, is clear on the Owners Direct website under 'Facilities' & in 'Notes'. For your information, depending on whether you view the advert on a pc or a tablet changes what is immediately visible (if you highlight a facility which has '…' afterwards it supplies more info). We have since added the parking information to the main description page as well so it can't be missed. These guests were staying over New Year, so if a neighbour had visitors it is unfortunate that there was some noise from above and we are sorry it may have disturbed them. We re-decorate early every year before the main season. As for the bins if you sit at the dining table and look out the window in one direction you can now see bins, but look the other way and you see the harbour and boats etc. We all choose our focus - please read other reviews! We have received excellent feedback from our many visitors over the last 3 years and we are confident anyone visiting will enjoy their stay in our apartment.

Great in Everyway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I plus our 8 year old Daughter were in need of a well earned short break to recharge out batteries and this apartment plus the area and wonderful seafood did not disappoint. The apartment was clean as a whistle and contained everything that was needed from a home for home enabling us to feel extremely happy. It was comfortable and had great views to the sea and across the harbour itself. The whole area had superb coastal walks, stunning scenery and a wide selection of foods to suit all tastes and in particular a wide variety of fresh seafood. YUM YUM !!! A selection of sand and shingle beaches were within easy walking distance offering fun to young and old collecting fossils and shells. A little further afield (but still very near by car) you could find clean sandy beaches with more holiday attractions for the youngsters. This particular location is absolutely perfect for couples. I would also add that the communications with the owners (Angie & Graham) was very friendly and perfect which made the whole holiday totally relaxed.

Lovely apartment, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in this excellent apartment in the lovely village of West Bay. The coastal walks are wonderful with superb views. The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable and in a perfect position for exploring Dorset. We visited Lyme Regis, Dorchester, Weymouth and Portland during our stay but there are so many more places to visit we could have stayed another week! There are many excellent cafes, pubs and restaurants in West Bay. Highly recommended!
