  • "Had a good stay at The Beach House."

    The welcome pack was appreciated.It was great for our dog Holly to have the garden enclosed so she could explore whilst we sat in the lovely conservatory. Would have preferred a washing machine rather than a dishwasher. The location was good , just a 10 minute walk into Wast Bay and a 20 minute walk into Bridport where the shopping was lovely at the Market.

  • "A very cosy small house, some really nice touches."

    Appreciated the bottle of wine and pint of milk plus the coffee pods. The garden was private and caught the afternoon sun, a bonus at this time of the year. We really loved the close access across the fields to The Rise restaurant and harbour and other amenities. Perfect place for a dog friendly holiday, highly recommend.

  • "We very much enjoyed our stay at The Beach House."

    The location is great - quiet, with a short traffic-free walk to West Bay and to Bridport and good off-road parking for two vehicles. We had a mix of weather but the house is well suited to all rain and shine with a sheltered garden, garden seating and a conservatory for cooler wetter days. The house is nicely decorated with quality furniture and fittings and comfortable beds. It's a very dog friendly house. We don't have a dog and it was nice to see that there wasn't too much evidence of previous doggy visitors as an easy house to keep clean and fresh. It is also and ideal location to explore further afield with easy access to the A35 and the coast road to Burton Bradstock and Abbottbury.

  • "A nicely situated comfortable holiday home located a short walk from the centre of West Bay."

    There was a welcome pack upon arrival and the house was well cleaned throughout. The off road parking is just round the corner which can easily fit 2 cars. I sent the owners a query and they respond with a telephone call straight away which was very good. The area the house is in is very quiet at night, was nice to sit in the beautiful garden under the stars relaxing. There is a park a short walk away which was useful in helping to entertain the kids. The bedrooms are larger than they look on the pictures, and the beds were incredibly comfortable - I meant to look at the brand before I left as we all slept so well on them. There was plenty of storage space throughout. Only scored 4/5 as would be good if possible to have a travel cot and high chair rather than brining our own, also would be good to have a safety device fitted to the roller blind cords to prevent accidents with children. With a young family it would have also been good to have a washing machine in the property although we were aware of this before booking.

  • "Lovely clean and bright house."

    Well equipped even the dogs catered for with water bowls, doggie bags and welcome pack. Very tastefully themed decor so nice to eat off Royal Doulton plates in a holiday home - a touch of class! Very neat practical garden and conservatory and off road parking. Good safe walk to the beach and the harbour. Easy access to a beautiful part of the country.

    Thank you so much for your feedback . I’m so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Best wishes Steve Property Owner

  • "This is a difficult review because the Beach House is a lovely property."

    It is tastefully decorated and in an ideal location. We loved the garden and the conservatory. The fly in the ointment, as so many have said is the sofas, which are unbelievably uncomfortable. I don’t think I have ever sat on a more uncomfortable sofa in my life! I have to say unless the sofas were replaced we would not return. It’s a shame because other than that it’s perfect. I do not think it needs a washing machine.

    Hi Vanessa thanks for your feedback. We contacted Ercol and they assured us that the cushions would soften. They clearly have not. We will find a solution. Thanks again for your comment it was very helpful Steve Property Owner

  • "As others have said, the sofa is uncomfortable."

    Also the property could do with a washing machine. Property is in a great location however. Conveniently not far from both shops and the beach.

    Hi Andrew thanks for your feedback it is so helpful. We hoped the sofa cushions would soften and they haven’t. We need to think again. With regards to the washing machine we are creating a utility room in the garage, but at the moment it is not top of the list. Best wishes, Steve Property Owner

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.
