The property

Settled on the edge of the seaside resort of West Bay is this delightful detached thatched property, The Roddy House, resting just moments away from the beach.

Designed with a seamless blend of contemporary styling and period character features, this exceptional property is the perfect base for bringing together families and friends to the resort town, which was popularised by the ITV series Broadchurch.

After a day of exploring the sandstone cliffs of the Golden Cap, make your way into the sitting room, where you can kick back and relax on the sofa to tune into the Smart TV offering great evening entertainment, whilst the gas fire set within a traditional reveal contains a gas fire, which fills the room with a gentle warmth and sets the ambiance.

Make use of the well-equipped kitchen to chef up your own delicious meals before settling down with your family or friends at the conservatory dining table to pop open a bottle of bubbly and toast to a long-awaited holiday.

The conservatory also offers an alternative seating space where you can relax and watch the wall mounted TV, delve into a good book or to simply admire the boutique interior of this space with a drink in hand.

As the evening draws to a close, make your way upstairs to find the elegant king-size bedroom, complete with quality linens and a plush duvet that is awaiting to be curled up in after an action-packed day.

Along the landing, you will find another king-size bedroom with fitted wardrobe, as well as a single bedroom with a desk.

Each morning, look forward to catching a breath of fresh air in the enclosed patio garden, where the garden furniture offers an alternative spot for enjoying your morning coffee or alfresco dining in the balmy summer evenings, and is the perfect spot your four-legged friend to roam freely.

West Bay is a short stroll away and is a hub of activity being home to restaurants serving locally caught fresh fish, fish and chip shops, takeaways, and some local shops for anything you need during your stay.

Delight in coastal fun with fishing trips out to sea allowing you to admire the stunning cliff top scenery from the water, fossil hunting along the ancient Jurassic Coastline to bring home a unique souvenir, sunbathing on the beach and walking along the South West Coast Path.

Lying to the east of West Bay is the lovely village of Abbotsbury, home to the famous Abbotsbury Swannery along with Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens, both well-worth a visit, while the lively, seaside town of Weymouth lies a little further out and boasts plenty of attractions like SEA LIFE Centre Weymouth and Sandworld.

Visit the beautiful town of Lyme Regis 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.

Make wonderful memories at The Roddy House along the unforgettable Dorset coast.
