About the Owner

We bought No 11 in 2004 as a little asbestos shack. We demolished it and put up the building as it is today. It has been constructed using the most energy efficient means and a specification that lifeboat houses use to combat the elements. Its old shack had history dating back to the second world war when it used to be the tea place for the home guard whilst guarding the shores.

Guestbook comments from the owner

When we reached the chalet we seemed to immediately relax. We will return.

We arrived in the dark so did not see the beautiful surroundings of the sea and cliffs till morning. It is an idyllic place. We have walked for miles and experienced some truly lovely sights and food. Will not hesitate to come back.

Lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a week in this lovely chalet, we were very impressed with the space and all the finishing touches. The owner Kim was very helpful and the chalet was well equipped with lots of extras. The location is idyllic and quiet by the sea yet 20 minutes cliff walk and you're in West Bay. We will certainly be returning.

Lovely property in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a great time at no. 11 chalet. The setting and amenities were as described and better.

We walked to both Seatown and West Bay and enjoyed the coast immensely.

It was a pleasure staying there watching the rabbits play in the field in the sunset as we relaxed at tea.

We'd highly recommend this property for others on holiday.

Beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

Chalet was amazing ! Location was fantastic and right on the beach. Bit tricky with access down the tight lanes but generally not that bad. If you like scenery and rambling then wow this is for you! To the left you can walk to Bridport and West Bay and to the right you can go all the way to Lyme Regis.

There is a small shop 100 yards away that sells the essentials if you run short or a 10 minute drive to Bridport takes you to morrisons supermarket.

Back up the lane from chalet there is a pub/Inn that serves food and is highly recommended.

Overall a great stay for me my wife my 8yr old daughter and our dog!!

Beautiful, relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at number 11 on a very warm afternoon. The chalet was cool and the size of rooms suit a family planning time on the beach, a good, big, spacious bathroom, storage and everything you can imagine and need in the kitchen. The family slept well and it is so close to the beach, very close. The beach was lovely, good fun for the children, it is a pebble beach and lots to explore. The views are spectacular. We didn't use the car for our stay, only to pick up supplies. It is a wonderful pick up a book and relax place. Thoroughly enjoyed and a beautiful, quiet area. The dog also thoroughly enjoyed her first visit, the beach was ideal and the green in front of the chalet. The chalet was easily big enough to accomodate children and the dog.

Glorious seaside stay

  • 5 of 5

Having navigated the narrow lanes to Eype's Mouth the holiday cottage was everything it was made out to be. It was spacious, well equipped, and only a few minutes walk from the sea. Although parking is limited to outside the chalet, there's room for two cars. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment for the self-caterer. The sitting area is spacious and provides a view across the site's grassed area where rabbits could be seen morning and night. The bathroom was spacious too, and the two bedrooms most comfortably fitted out.

Eype's Mouth is a mile or so walk from West Bay along the South West Coastal Path. Very scenic, but quite hilly. West Bay hosts numerous places to eat and has plenty of parking should you choose to drive there (10 mins). In the other direction is Downhouse Farm, a National Trust farm, which has a lovely tea room (and clotted cream as thick as you could possibly want!). Just inland of west Bay is Bridport which has a large Morrison's store, as well as a reasonable selection of shops. A bit further away is Weymouth which is a good sized town.

The beach at Eype's Mouth is all pebble, as are several along this part of the Dorset coast. However there are also many sandy beaches to be found.

All along this stretch of coast are quaint, old fashioned places which have not been taken over by the brash amusement arcades like some seaside towns.

If you like relaxing, and in particular countryside walking, then this is the ideal place for you to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a comprehensive review. I am so glad you found the delight that is Downhouse Farm and sampled the cream teas (not to be missed). Eype is in such a lovely spot to discover so much of our lovely coast line and inland villages.

From the Owner

We came across the auction details in the local press. We came to look at the site and were so taken with the area we decided to buy. The plot we picked felt best served to fit in the type of building we wanted to erect. We have stayed here in all weathers and it is as idyllic in each season. There is always so much to explore without even having to get the car out.

The beach is no more than 100yds walk from chalet. Eype beach is a shingle beach with lots of interesting things to find. Fossils if you are really lucky and lots of rock pools. Fishing is also good off of the beach. Dogs are welcome here all year round. There is also a beach at West Bay, Seatown and Charmouth.


Eype village is a short walk away, whereas Bridport the local Market Town is a 5 minute drive or can be walked in around 20 mins. There is a vibrant arty theme to Bridport which can be seen at the markets held on a Wednesday and Saturday in the town. There is a great Farm shop at Washingpool a 10 minute drive away. Downe House out door cafe can be found either by walking across the hills or a few minute drive away. Cakes and scones their speciality.

Further Details:

West Bay has a leisure centre and amusements as well as boat rides. You can also take a Boat trip to Lyme Regis for the day. Lyme Regis is well worth a visit as is Bere and Sidmouth.

This area is great for walkers and mountain bikers alike. You can go left to Portland, Chesil, Weymouth and to Poole beyond or go right to Lyme, Exeter and beyond. For Artists there is a wealth of amazing countryside and sea views to paint. For the Foodies there is seafood in abundance. Hive Beach at Burton Bradstock, Adam Hicks Restaurant in Lyme Regis and many more.

From the Owner

Its position to the Jurassic Coast I would say is the best benefit. The beach is never crowded so you can always guarantee plenty of space. The views of the surrounding countryside as well is amazing especially if you are into wildlife.
