    “Location of Buttercups is ideal.”

    A leisurely 10 minutes walk along a well kept all weather path virtually straight to the beach. ( which is one of the best in the area )

The property

Settled on the edge of the seaside resort of West Bay is this delightful mid-terrace property, Buttercups.

Perfectly suited to a small family or a couple, Buttercups offers contemporary living just a stone's throw from the beach and the centre of nearby Bridport.

Make your way into the stylish sitting room after a busy day outdoors and relax on the long, pink sofa, with a electric fire within the attractive fireplace adding a homely ambiance and a TV in the corner to entertain.

Step into the superb fitted kitchen to make use of the excellent appliances at your fingertips, including an electric oven and hob, rustling up a family favourite for everyone to enjoy at the dining table.

Delight in having your own outdoor space to yourself with the enclosed garden where outdoor seating offers the perfect spot for a drink on a balmy summer evening after the children have gone to bed.

Afterwards you can settle down into the double bedroom found on the first floor, along with the twin room, served by a sleek bathroom suite with a large P-shaped bath to unwind in.

Wander down to the shores of West Bay for a host of activities to enjoy from fossil hunting on this ancient Jurassic Coast and fishing trips out to sea, to days sunbathing on the beach and walks along the coast, there's something for everyone.

Breath-taking cliff top scenery awaits you in both directions along the South West Coast Path, with Lyme Regis to the west and Abbotsbury and Weymouth to the east.

Head east to visit the lovely Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens and famous Abbotsbury Swannery, and take a drive over to Weymouth to experience the classic seaside delights of amusements, eateries, and exciting attractions like SEA LIFE Centre Weymouth and Sandworld.

Bridport is just next door and offers an array of restaurants and pubs along with a weekly farmer's market allowing you to pick up some fresh, local ingredients for your self-catered cooking.

For fresh, locally caught seafood, make a booking at Riverside, a restaurant in West Bay offering a menu that changes with the seasons serving delicious dishes, whilst a classic fish and chips by the harbour is always a great plan too.

Enjoy soaking up the delightful Dorset scenery from the lovely Buttercups.
