  • "Wonderful location and decking area."

    Lovely to be able to open the doors up completely although not straightforward to lock up. No welcome pack (milk etc) and only 1 toilet roll supplied which was unexpected. Lounge TV as noted in other reviews is in a daft place and we couldn’t get it to work. Cutlery and serving implements very basic and not befitting a premium priced and superbly located property. Overall had a great time and would recommend.

    Thankyou for your feedback and comments, we are glad you loved the location and decking area. Property Owner

  • "All in all we had a wonderful and enjoyable stay."

    The view is second to none! The house was great and clean and offered all we needed. I got a little annoyed with the very low ceiling in the upstairs room which otherwise would be the gem of the house. But having to walk stooped and hitting your head twice a day is just annoying.

  • "This is our second time at The Wave and we had a lovely time once again."

    We did struggle with the mattresses on the beds however - the were very in comfortable. Some too soft, some too springy. The main bed upstairs has a topper that keeps slipping off. Would be great to see these upgraded before our visit next year.

    Thank you for your valuable feedback and delighted you enjoyed your second stay at The Wave. We are very sorry that you felt the mattresses were too soft and not your personal preference, these were brand new 4 years ago and your comments will be taken onboard alongside other guest’s feedback. We look forward to welcoming you back to The Wave again soon. Property Owner

  • "This is a fabulous property in a beautiful location."

    Fantastic views of the coastline and within a few minutes walk of the beach. The property had absolutely everything we needed and we all had a wonderful time. Swimming in the sea everyday and star gazing at night. On a clear night the stars were stunning! The area has plenty to offer if you want to explore by car and the coastal walks are breathtaking. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer ! Will be rebooking : )

  • "Overall The Wave very good."

    Beautifully clean and well-equipped to a high standard. It had everything that we needed, (apart from oven gloves!) View was outstanding from the Wave and its decking. As weather was poor on a few days, we did spend a few evenings watching television which was uncomfortable as seating and tv aspect was not best positioned. This was a minor inconvenience, otherwise we had no issues. Highly recommend this property.

    There are now two extra, stackable wicker chairs with cushions so hope there are now comfortable options for larger families to enjoy their stay. Property Owner

  • "The apartment was lovely, the rooms where a good size and the kitchen had everything we needed during our stay."

    The only issue was the closing of Eype eats at 6 pm on check in day as by the time we could get in after 5 they had already run out of pizzas. The views from the fully opening front were stunning and the visitor that came each evening was a real treat. As a family we loved our stay here.

  • "The cleanliness of the property was abysmal, especially considering the pandemic."

    Toenails in bedding. Unwashed sheets on the bed. Filthy cutlery drawer. The response from the 'Customer Relations Team' was very poor - no apology or sense of contrition - just a 'you should have told us sooner' type of response. I cannot fault the location and facilities of the property, it would have been a 5 star review if the cleanliness and customer relations were better. For that reason I will not recommend Dream Cottages to anyone.

    Thankyou for your feedback. We are so sorry to hear about the cleanliness standards and the response you encountered whilst staying at The Wave. We have recently appointed a new Housekeeping Team and are continuously striving to improve on cleaning standards. Property Owner

  • "We loved the Wave the location is stunning and watching the moon over the sea each evening was a highlight."

    Being able to get into the sea in 5 minutes was super too. Unfortunately the cleaning left a bit to be desired there were hairs in the sink and the cupboards were dirty inside with food debris. But we loved our stay overall

  • "We had a great week until the end of the holiday."

    We were refused a 30 minute extension to our check out time to allow my daughter to do an online singing audition. This is despite the fact that the cleaners had from 10am to 5pm to clean the property. They offered us 15 mins extra only which was not long enough. I understand that the property had to be cleaned first but I even offered to strip beds or do since cleaning to allow us the extra 30 mins in the property. It was not a last minute request, but one I made 48 hours before check out. Totally unreasonable rejection of a perfectly reasonable and small request!

  • "Had a lovely stay, chalet was perfect, views were amazing."

    The only negatives were that the kitchen knives could be better also to include a bread knife and possibly some picnic style plates and glasses to use on the decking. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.

  • "Well appointed lodge right on the cliff edge next to a beach."

    The double bed upstairs is very uncomfortable/unusable and the room is unbearably hot even during a wet/windy May. We had to move to the downstairs double room and then found the underfloor heating was broken/stuck on full. It was repaired very swiftly (same day) which was appreciated. Other than that we had a pleasant stay and would recommend.

    The sofa was uncomfortable and not relaxing to sit on and the tv was situated at the completely wrong angle to watch comfortably.

  • "Washing machine didn’t seem to work."

    Got an error message when tried to use and no instructions in folder re washing machine. Air con in upstairs room didn’t always work as expected. Often pumping out warm air rather than cool. Not ideal. Otherwise the house is well appointed in a lovely location with beautiful views and despite the above mentioned nuisances I would recommend.

  • "The Wave was the perfect spot."

    Great views and so close to the beach. We brought our own kayak and made the most of the beautiful weather and flat seas. We went on two beautiful walks - up to St Catherine's Chapel in Abbotsbury and along the cliff line to West Bay and back. We were also close enough to take a day trip to Studland and kayak around Old Harry's Rock.

  • "Unfortunately there were layers of dust under the beds which set off allergies instantly."

    The door seal leaked on the last day during the horrendous storm, and we were ushered out of the property before 10am despite having a sleeping baby, and galesforce winds outside. I understand that cleaning needs to take place but surely there are sometimes mitigating circumstances. Apart from these issues, the place is beautiful and in a great location. The facilities are bedrooms are lovely. We found the information folder on the last day, so would recommend putting it in a more prominent place.

The property

The Wave at Eype is a unique architect designed lodge style property, and it offers breath-taking uninterrupted sea views.

Newly constructed in 2018, this contemporary lodge has fully glazed bi-fold doors leading on to a large decked area, which makes the most of the sea and coastal views, from both inside the property and out.

The doors make the open plan living kitchen dining space part of the outside and they allow the light to flood in, and bring the stunning views to the doorstep.

The curved shape of The Wave affords guests the opportunity of a first floor master bedroom with further additional unique sea views.

There are also two ground floor bedrooms and a contemporary bathroom.

This exceptional gem is just a few moments' walk from the beach, and coastal path, and it offers the perfect location for a relaxed seaside family holiday in Dorset.

Just a short drive away the market town of Bridport, with its famous market, large selection of independent shops, and popular restaurants and it is well worth a visit.

If you are a fan of the ITV series Broadchurch, the chalet used in series one is directly opposite The Wave, and West Bay where the series was based is just a short drive away, and you can recognise many familiar sights from the programme when you visit. There is much to be enjoyed on the doorstep of this beautiful property, but don’t let that stop you from exploring further afield, as Chesil beach, Charmouth, Lyme Regis, Abbotsbury, Portland and Weymouth are all close by, and an easy drive away.

This chalet would suit a family or group of friends who want to make the most of being on the coast.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Bridport 1.8 miles; Lyme Regis 9.6 miles; Seaton 18.4 miles.

Eype sits on one of the most dramatic sections of the Jurassic Coastline, and famously features one of ITV’s series Broadchurch’s most iconic locations. We’ll leave you guessing as to which one until you visit. The beach at Eype is a steeply shelving pebble beach that is dog friendly all year round and just 3 miles from Bridport and 4 from West Bay, where many other Broadchurch locations can be viewed, as well enjoying local fish and chips on the harbour side and ice creams on the sea front. Bridport offers all the high street amenities you will need along with a much-coveted antiques and collectables market. Golden Cap, the highest point in Dorset, sits on the South West Coast path and is just 4 miles from Eype, although it’s the highest point there are moderate routes to walk to the top, where spectacular far reaching views along the coast will be your reward.

Note: there is some restricted head height as you approach the window in the 1st floor bedroom.

Note: there is a good house-keeping bond of £100 on this property

Note: guests need to provide their own cot linen
