  • "Beautiful apartment in a great setting with lovely views."

    It really is in a fab location with lots of places to eat out within walking distance. We recommend the Windy Corner Cafe and West Bay Wok. We had fab weather and enjoyed sitting on the wrap around balcony in an evening, watching people on the Esplanade. When looking for cottages, there are 3 must-have things we look for. Parking - yes, designated underground and secure. Wifi - yes. King sized bed - no. Although listed as king sized it is a double which meant some difficult nights for my tall/broad husband and me. Please alter the description. Apart from that, we were pleased to find it was very clean with added extras such as hairdryers, tea/coffee making basket.

  • "Fantastic location with stunning sea views and multiple sunbathing opportunities from various balconies."

    Great walking routes nearby. The property was well equipped, nicely furnished and very clean and well-presented. We would definitely choose this property again.

  • "Lovely, spacious, modern apartment, with wonderful wrap around balcony and views through to the harbour and famous cliff beyond, and sea/beach to the west."

    Great location within West Bay and for travelling to other local areas. Parking and access to the apartment very convenient. All the facilities you need - the description didn’t mention there’s a double wardrobe with hangers in each bedroom - so along with large chests of drawers, plenty of storage. Kitchen was well equipped with all we needed. Would absolutely recommend.

  • "The Penthouse was lovely, massive open plan living area with TV and DVD player and large comfy sofas, a fully equipped kitchen and two bathrooms."

    Every room was spotlessly clean. We had plenty of space for a family of four, the open plan living space was ideal and the use of two separate bathrooms was great with two teenage girls. The sea and harbour views were very good (even with rain and rough seas) and in West Bay there were takeaways and a small supermarket. Visiting Lyme Regis and Charmouth was easy - just a short drive. We would definitely stay here again, everything about The Penthouse was faultless. Thank you for a lovely holiday!

  • "So relaxing, being able to watch the world go by whilst sitting on the balcony enjoying the views of the harbour and beaches at this exceptional apartment."

  • "We had a lovely stay and enjoyed the apartment."

    It would be more helpful to have proper bins to help separate rubbish. Only one bin is provided and no food waste bags. Luckily we brought our own but with no counter top food waste bin we had to improvise. I’d suggest if they want people to adhere to the rubbish rules (and good environmental care) that proper labelled bins are provided.

  • "We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed stating in the apartment."

    The views were wonderful and the apartment was very comfortable making for a very relaxing and restorative time. It's a small thing, but I would have expected to find a hairdryer there!

  • "The apartment was without doubt the best holiday let we have ever stayed at, excellent location, views and high quality facilities."

    Easy access from the dedicated car parking space directly to a lift to the front door of the property. Thank you for the experience, hope to return in the near future.

About the location


Bridport 1.5 miles; Lyme Regis 7 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 Coastal Path, as well as ample opportunities to try your hand at sea fishing, golf, fossil hunting, boating. Visits the homes on 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 takes you to the picturesque seaside resort of Lyme Regis, the lovely sub-tropical gardens and swannery at Abbotsbury, or the golden sands of Weymouth. This wonderful location makes an ideal base for a great family holiday.
