  • "House was in a good quiet location and had everything we needed for our stay."

    Clean and tidy. Garden got the sun on an afternoon, but the trees got in the way and need trimming back a bit. Easy 10 min walk to the harbour. Plenty of cafes and bars to chose from. Enjoyed our stay

  • "A lovely cottage, just a short walk to the beach."

    The cottage was situated in a very quiet area. It was clean and well maintained. On arrival, we were welcomed with some gifts including local biscuits. We had a nice holiday and managed to visit much of the surrounding area. We would definitely return. Thank you Mead Cottage.

West Bay, fondly known as “The Gateway to the Dorset Jurassic Coast” and popularised by the TV series Broadchurch, lies close to 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 Coast Path, as well as ample opportunities to try your hand at sea fishing, crabbing, boating and golf. Visit the homes of Thomas Hardy and TE Lawrence, the Tank Museum at Bovington or the Naval air Museum at Yeovil. 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 West takes you to Charmouth for fossil hunting, to the picturesque seaside resort of Lyme Regis, and to River Cottage HQ near Axminster. To the East are the lovely Sub-tropical Gardens and Swannery at Abbotsbury, and the golden sands of Weymouth. This wonderful location makes an ideal base for a great family holiday.
