  • "Harry and Pam were pleasant and delightful hosts and they made us feel at home, we enjoyed our stay and we look forwards to returning."

    Everything about the accommodation was perfect for us. We would highly recommend this accommodation.

  • "Accommodation and furnishing comfortable."

    Sufficient utensils. Good situation between Bridport and West Bay but road leading off West Bay Road short but steep. Driveway tricky, best not to drive up to cottage but to leave vehicle by bungalow. Enjoyed a relaxing stay.

  • "The location of the property was excellent, easily walkable to West Bay & Bridport."

    The pint of milk in the fridge was most welcome. The driveway leading to the parking space was very narrow, which wasn’t reflected in the pictures or description of the property, if we had a larger car we would have struggled to reach the parking space. The property was clean but there was a strange smell in the property, like masked stale cigarette smoke, which we were surprised by since it is a non smoking property. We opened the windows whilst we were there but couldn’t get rid of the smell all weekend. We were surprised to only find two teaspoons, which we thought was a bit mean. There didn’t seem to be any provision for recycling so we took it home with us as we didn’t want it to go to landfill.

    Thank you for your feedback, sorry you encountered some of these issues during your stay. Had these been brought to our attention at Dream Cottages we would have acted upon it and helped rectify them for you. The team would have been happy to attend the property with additional inventory and investigate the smell. As previous reviews show the owners who live adjacent to the property are also always willing to help whenever they can and could have also assisted in resolving these things and shown you where the recycling bins where located. There have been no previous reviews concerning the driveway, we do state it is a private road, but we will certainly take a look and see if this needs to be updated in our travel directions. We do hope to welcome you back to the area again soon. Dream Cottages. Property Owner

    Very central for exploring the area. West Bay and Bridport an easy walk, and a bus stop outside the property. Nice sitting area at the back looking over to rolling hillsides. All very enjoyable.

  • "Had a lovely stay, cottage was just perfect for us."

    Great for walks and a good location where you could get away from it all. Easy walk into Bridport, a great market on Saturday. Good having owners on site, Harry was a perfect host.

  • "We spent a lovely week at Roundham Cottage."

    The cottage is perfect, lovely decor and very well equipped. A lovely deck at the back, a real sun trap, and perfect for watching the sun go down in the evening. Harry and Pam met us on arrival, a lovely couple who just leave you to get on but we had a nice chat over the garden fence.

  • "Pam and Harry were the perfect hosts."

    They settled us in then left us to it! The photos of the cottage don’t do it justice. It’s cosy, well equipped (even has Netflix) and the garden is a little sun trap and private. There is some road noise when you’re outside but that didn’t bother us. The cottage is in a great spot. It’s around a 15 minute walk down to the beaches and harbor front (the walk up the cul de sac is very steep). There’s also a Morrison’s and Spa in walking distance. Only thing we’d say is we didn’t know what to do with our recycling - maybe add a note in the welcome book. Would highly recommend to a couple looking for a chilled out break in a central location.

    Beautiful holiday home for a couple, with everything necessary to hand. Clean, modern and tidy. Decked area came into its own during the afternoon and evening, bathed in sunshine. Highly recommended.

    However, information about this property should advise how the key safe works as we had to enlist the help of the owner to put the key back at the end of our stay.

  • "We enjoyed our recent stay in this comfortable and clean accommodation."

    We were a bit surprised that a hairdryer wasn't provided - self-catering properties tend to include one. The first morning's activities included a trip in to Bridport to buy one ! A small bin in the bathroom would be useful as would a potato peeler and small sharp kitchen knife in the kitchen drawer. Whilst obviously plates etc. were provided, a complete set of modern crockery and cutlery would complement the modern kitchen and appliances. Although the entrance to the property is in a close, the cottage is located in an elevated position above the main road in to West Bay. We were therefore aware of some traffic noise ; especially when we had any windows open.

  • "Location was good for us, quiet."

    only 15 minutes easy walk to West Bay and only 5 minutes walk to the local pub. The owners, who live on site, were very friendly and helpful and respected our privacy. There is a private outside terrace and garden area that gets the afternoon and evening sun and views of the hills. We would not hesitate to return. Be aware that Sykes Holiday Cottages charge a Booking Fee which is added at the end of your booking.

The property

Roundham Cottage is a new and lovingly converted holiday home resting just a short stroll from the popular coastal town of West Bay and provides a wonderful base for a couple to enjoy a relaxing retreat by the seaside and stunning Jurassic Coastline.

This cosy property offers an open plan living arrangement and is set out all on one level with the kitchen providing all you need to rustle up a home cooked meal to be enjoyed at the dining table, before moving your conversations to the plush sofa to plan your holiday itinerary together or switching on the TV to catch up on your favourite shows.

At the end of your busy day exploring the beautiful local area, you will find the well-presented king-size bedroom, which is sure to offer a tranquil night’s sleep and the bathroom with walk in shower, basin and WC is a modern and bright space for you to freshen up in.

There is an outside patio and decking area where you can sit down with your morning cup of tea or coffee and enjoy the peaceful surroundings whilst getting lost in a good book.

West Bay is most famous for its location scenes in the TV series Broadchurch and has a vast selection of restaurants, pubs and shops for you to discover, whether it be for your daily essentials or for that special souvenir to take back home.

The busy fishing harbour is a wonderful sight and the smell of freshly caught fish will have you rushing to the nearest takeaway chip shop, and there are many boat trips which can take you out on the water to relish in the spectacular clifftop scenery.

If you wish to travel further afield, the beautiful town of Lyme Regis is to the west of West Bay where you can marvel at the collections in Dinosaurland Fossil Museum, uncover the local history at Lyme Regis Museum and meet some underwater creatures at Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium, along with the stunning Monmouth Beach and Sandy Beach to enjoy too.

The charming village of Abbotsbury can be found to the east of West Bay and is home to attractions such as Abbotsbury Swannery and Abbotsbury Sub-Tropical gardens, both a lovely day out and a stroll along the pretty streets is a lovely way to while away the hours.

Roundham Cottage makes a fantastic base for you to enjoy a relaxing getaway in delightful Dorset at any time of the year.

About the location


Bridport 1.5 miles; Lyme Regis 11 miles

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.
