About Beach House

Dorset Beach House is a thatched cottage ideal for people who don’t want to step further than the front door to get to the beach. Forget packing the car with buckets and spades every morning, or the hassle of strapping your surfboard to the roof racks, the beach at West Bay is literally outside the front gate! The house is within 150 metres of West Bay Harbour and pubs like the The George, Bridport Arms and The West Bay Hotel. With space for up to 20 people to sleep comfortably you can get all your family and friends together for a fantastic beach holiday in Dorset.

West Bay, the harbour for Bridport, is part of Chesil Beach, an 18-mile stretch of shingle and pebble coastline on the Jurassic Coast. It is small compared to some of the resort towns in Dorset but is handy enough to have several “shacks” serving fresh seafood and excellent coffee, as well as a shop where you can pick up the basics. Bridport is only a short drive or a 20-minute walk away, where there are more places to eat, drink and shop. The town has a twice-weekly street market, on Wednesday and Saturday, the largest being on Saturday offering just about anything you can think of with fresh food, cooked offerings, toys, bric-a-brac, music, films, books etc.

The Jurassic Coast is unique and beautiful and justly deserves its classification as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The clearly defined layers of strata in the cliff act almost like a geologic filing cabinet, and the quality of fossils that can be found on the western beaches is fantastic. Lyme Regis is Fossil Central, with excellent museums, shops and opportunities to find out more about this stunning landscape. You can fossil hunt at Charmouth Beach, or book yourself onto one of the organised fossil walks through the Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre or the Lyme Regis Museum.

There is so much to see and do in the area that being bored is simply not an option. Lulworth Cove, some 45 minutes away by car, offers the chance to walk up and then down the cliff on the South West Coast Path path to admire the beautiful world-famous arch of Durdle Door. Get adventurous and go coasteering. Take a boat trip, explore smugglers’ caves, or spend the day at Weymouth enjoying the traditional entertainments of this timeless seaside resort town and harbour. Head inland and you will discover that Dorset is just as magnificent away from the beach, with lots of places to walk and mountain bike. Drive around and discover amazing country pubs, or spend the day shopping in Dorchester, Bournemouth or Poole.

Dorset Beach House is pretty near perfect for a memorable beach holiday with your family and friends.
