    “A beautifully located, beautifully appointed apartment that exceeded all expectations.”

    Immaculately clean, with no detail left overlooked from fixtures and fittings to kitchen equipment and furniture. I have already highly recommended the apartment to friends and family, and will definitely return as soon as possible - stayed July 2018

The property

Fishermen's Steps is a spacious and comfortable harbourside apartment with grandstand views over West Bay Harbour in Dorset, and only two miles away from market town of Bridport.

All rooms are on the ground floor offering beautiful harbour views from the open plan living area which includes generous sofas, a dining area and well equipped kitchen.

Enjoy your breakfast looking through the window at the bobbing boats or away to the rolling hills behind the harbour, or you can enjoy the balcony and soak up the seaside atmosphere close by.

The apartment can accommodate up to four people with two bedrooms, the master bedroom being with en-suite bathroom making it perfect for couples or a family.

The sea theme décor throughout is a beautiful touch and complements the location. Set right in the centre of West Bay you are perfectly located for enjoying and exploring this breath-taking section of Jurassic Coastline on foot.

If you wish to explore further afield, West Bay is centrally placed so you can easily head east towards Abbotsbury, Portland and Weymouth, or West to Charmouth and Lyme Regis.

Charmouth and Lyme Regis are famous for fossil hunting, so you can bring a souvenir home if found on the beach or visit the fossil shops located there.

If you are looking for an energetic clifftop walk, then this section of the Jurassic coast won’t disappoint.

A particular favourite is the walk to Golden cap – at 191 metres, it is the highest point on the south coast, and well worth the climb for the stunning views for miles around. The lovely market town of Bridport is just two miles away and gives you all you would expect from a traditional country market town, including a large selection of independent and high street shops, as well as restaurants, cafes and antique markets.

However, you may decide to just park up and relax as Fishermen's Steps gives you all you need right on the doorstep, and West Bay has a lively harbourside kiosk culture, offering everything from freshly caught seafood, local ice-cream and fish and chips, restaurants and bars. Fishermen’s Steps is a comfortable and bright apartment that will have you yearning to return again and again.

About the location


Bridport 1.5 miles; Lyme Regis 7 miles.

West Bay, fondly known as “The Gateway To The Dorset Jurassic Coast”, nestles beneath the glorious sandstone cliffs of Golden Cap, at the western end of the dramatic pebbly Chesil Beach. This is a wonderful seaside location, perfect for family holidays, offering scenic walks along the South West Coastal Path, as well as ample opportunities to try your hand at sea fishing, golf, fossil hunting, boating, or even try scuba diving. Only 1.5 miles away is the vibrant market town of Bridport, featured in the TV series, River Cottage. The area holds plenty of attractions to suit the whole family! Just a short drive takes you to the picturesque seaside resort of Lyme Regis, the lovely sub-tropical gardens and swannery at Abbotsbury, or the golden sands of Weymouth. This wonderful location makes an ideal base for a great family holiday.
