  • "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 views from the various balconies are fantastic though unfortunately one is unusable due to birds muck.

The property

Set in the heart of West Bay, is this iconic oval penthouse apartment; taking up the entire second floor, this is a real show stopper!

Exit the elevator and enter through the front door, where you will find a spiral staircase that leads to a breath-taking garden room with windows that allows you to view the stunning Jurassic Coastline and sea views for as far as the eye can see.

Step out of the bi-folding doors onto a private balcony where you see those delightful views whilst enjoying a refreshing beverage.

Back down the spiral stairs, you will find double doors that lead into an open-plan living space, that enjoys spectacular sea views, and doors that open on the decked wrap around balcony, you will be spoilt for choice.

Discover two well-presented bedrooms, consisting of a king-size double and twin, both with tasteful furnishings to store your personal items, where you can wake up to this picturesque setting every morning!

The large en-suite shower room makes this the perfect place to relax and unwind in the tub after a tiring day.

West Bay is an idyllic Dorset seaside harbour village, that offers many cafés, restaurants, and bars, with a selection of shops where you can find all your daily needs, and be sure to enjoy award-winning ice cream as you watch the daily catch being landed in the harbour.

Bridport is a lovely market town that has all the high street amenities and a great selection of local independent shops to browse.

Choose from rolling green hills, fishing boats leaving the harbour or large sea and coastline views.

This penthouse is great for those wanting to have a delightful romantic seaside break or the ideal base for a family to explore the Dorset Coast.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
