The property

‘The Beach House’ is a well-presented, semi-detached cottage style home located at 8 Buttercup Way in West Bay, on the edge of this seaside resort and close to many fantastic attractions.

Set over two floors, The Beach House offers a fantastic base for those seeking to uncover the delights of this region, including Chesil Beach, the UK’s only natural World Heritage site, the Jurassic Coast and the Dorset Area Of Natural Beauty.

Enter into the living room, where you can put your feet up after a long day of rambling, equipped with a feature gas fire and smart TV for cosy nights in.

Move into the kitchen/diner where you can rustle up a feast for the group, utilising the electric oven, gas hob and dishwasher for your self-catering needs.

Why not pop open a bottle of bubbly and toast to your holiday at the dining table?

As you look to catch some rest, venture upstairs to find the bedrooms; one double and the other a twin, both wonderfully presented and serviced by a shower room where you can prepare for the day ahead, with views of rolling hills from the rear bedroom, along with tranquil setting of the footpath/bridleway and stream from the front bedroom and living room.

In the morning, awaken to a fresh coffee from the Nespresso machine and step out into the sunny conservatory or into the enclosed rear cottage style garden, a tranquil spot to enjoy a moments peace before going about the day.

When you’re ready to explore, there’s plenty to fill out your holiday itinerary; sunbathe on West Bay’s golden beach, hire a boat and sail around the beautiful harbour or join the South West Coast Path and discover hidden coves and scenic views or join the Brit Valley Way and head north along the meandering River Brit to the Beaminster Downs and the idyllic Dorset countryside.

If you fancy a night out, there’s a plethora of well-established restaurants along the harbour, as well as traditional pubs where you can sample whisky and locally produced real ales.

Nearby arty Bridport offers a fascinating museum, the UK’s only thatched brewery (Palmers) with brewery tours and the bustling twice-weekly Bridport market is perfect for sourcing local goods and produce.

Explore the along the coast and find excellent swimming and fossil hunting conditions in Charmouth or visit a variety of species at Dinosaurland Fossil Museum in Lyme Regis, an excellent choice for the little ones.

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.
