  • "We enjoyed our stay at Beach Haven which had plenty of space and was beautifully decorated."

    Our fav room was the cosy coastal theme living room with log fire and 3 sofas enabling 2 groups of people to enjoy the space without feeling on top of each other! The en-suites were of a high standard though anyone using the loft bedroom/ensuite may find the bath up there a bit small to wash in. The welcome basket was appreciated and while our 2 children are grown up, the children’s books and toy bag in the bunk room is a nice touch! Our only observation would be to add some more kitchen utensils (1 wooden spoon and 1 peeler isn’t sufficient) and a lemon zest juicer at the very least - though an electric juicer or some kind of blender would be even better. The sea is very rough so we kept our dog on the lead at all times though there are beaches further afield that are not as treacherous.

  • "Excellent accommodation, superb location, very comfortable, wonderful views, quality furnishings and finishings wanted to stay another week."

    Only small thing would be to put a dressing table with mirror in rooms and a shelf in the showers to put toiletries on when washing. Everything else just perfect! Will definitely return best accommodation ever rented, welcome pack a lovely addition thank you x

  • "Beautiful location, well equiped property, secure and well kept garden for the dogs, thank you."

    A couple of minor issues identified, that didn't spoil our holiday: 1. New TV remote handset required in the lounge, many of the symbols couldn't be read, very frustrating but worked it out eventually! 2. Torch in the main downstairs bedroom a thoughful touch, not working ? new batteries. 3. Cleaners need to clean underneath beds, sofas etc. 4. Bed linen poor quality for a 4* accommodation, there was a hole in the duvet cover in the main downstairs bedroom. My feed back is based on having 3 UK holidays a year, over many years and feel able to make a comparison. 5. Electrics in kitchen, kettle didn't work with the microwave on at the same time. Addressing the issues would make this lovely property into a fabulous one.

  • "A beautiful bungalow, well equipped throughout, comfortable beds and comfortable furniture in the lounge too."

    All the appliances in the kitchen were of high standards (I particularly liked the induction hob, it was my first time using one and I was very impressed). We had a sea view and Beach Haven is in a very quiet location - perfect for us and our family and our dogs.

  • "Beach Haven is a beautiful, spacious house to stay in with fabulous views ."

    The kitchen table was a great place to have family meals and play games. The kitchen was well stocked with crockery and utensils. We loved the garden, it is well maintained and perfect for children and dogs to play safely. We were a little disappointed by the beach which was too pebbly to easily walk on, or for dogs to run on with our getting sore paws. We were surprised that there were no recycling facilities at the house or nearby and we were limited on car space to take it home with us. The property is a little noisy due to no curtains (only blinds) and no rugs so the early risers woke us all up! But it is such a lovely house and location we would recommend it to others

    I completely understand your frustration over a lack of recycling boxes. This is because we are registered as a trade/business entity so we operate using one black bin rather than the usual residential recycling boxes. There is a brilliant recycling centre just off the West Bay roundabout near Groves garden centre l. Property Owner

    Also highly recommend the Club House opposite Beach Haven. Excellent food and great cocktails. Good offers on Friday and Sunday for food and for cocktails on Friday & Saturday(2-for-1 Happy Hour 5-6pm). Great breakfast on our last day.

  • "We enjoyed the location next to the sea in a quiet spot but near to the lovely seaside to towns of Weymouth and West Bay."

    The property was to a high standard and was big enough for three families to spread out. The kitchen was very well equipped. We had a lovely holiday, enjoying the garden and eating at the good restraunts in the same village.

  • "As a self catering holiday with family the cooker didn’t work correctly and we only found out upon arrival and the toaster was very well used and only cooked one side so took a long time to make any food with became a chore for all."

    The outside chairs need looking at as some were very rickety although 2 new ones were delivered on the day of arrival. These things are a must and should be replaced/repaired immediately. The house and location were amazing stunning views.

    Brand new oven has been fitted, we did not wait for the part and new toaster purchased as soon as guest feedback alerted me to the issue. As you said, 2 new outside dining chairs were ordered prior to your arrival Property Owner

  • "Our stay at Beach Haven was wonderful from start to finish."

    The property is located close to some very nice beach destinations as well as being on the actual shingle beach with great walks nearby. The house had everything needed to enjoy time away in a home from home property. The house amenities are super, if I was being picky (and I'm not) a few more pegs would have been useful but it's very hard to say anything but positive things about Beach Haven inside and outside. Thank you for our super stay.

  • "This was one of my favourite places that I’ve stayed."

    The location was perfect and the home is just beautiful, especially the window seat in the upstairs room that became my reading nook for the week! The welcome pack was really thoughtful, and as neither my Mum or I really drink, it was nice that it was something other than wine which is the normal welcome gift. We had a couple of days of really good weather but the location is perfect for getting to everywhere we wanted to in Dorset. I’ve already recommended the place to a number of friends, and I’m already looking for when I can return. Nikki

  • "Very welcoming home, well equipped to a high standard."

    Beautiful location. Spaciously arranged for a group of up to 8 for eating as well as sitting relaxing, both inside and out on the terrace. Beds very comfortable , 3 bathrooms a real bonus. A fire guard would be essential if the wood burner was lit and would also protect little heads from those sharp corners and edges on the fireplace. Negatives: only 3 dishwasher tablets for a week and only 1 cheap toilet roll per bathroom seems miserly, considering the cost of rental !

  • "A clothes airer or tumble dryer would be desirable- with 3 small children- we soon ran out of inside drying space and the weather wasn't good enough to dry clothes outside a lot of the time."

    2 of the garden chairs were broken....and the rocking sun lounger had to be moved as we had 2 small children in our party running potentially would have trapped small feet!! Apart from those suggestions- it was perfect....we would love to come again.....beautiful place.

    Thank you for your feedback. There are 4 pull out clothes lines under the ceiling of the utility room running the length of the room and a towel rail in the utility to help dry wet things if the weather is bad. Outside there is a rotary clothes line. The rocking sun chair was equipped with 2 wedges to stop it rocking if you wanted but they must have become detached from the chair. I will try and find some replacements. Property Owner

    It looked lovely in the pictures but the property is stunning. My dad has some disabilities and your property fitted his needs perfectly. It was really important for him to be comfortable and he hasn’t stopped talking about our weekend there for his 60th birthday.

  • "Beach Haven was a beautiful property, just what we needed for February half term."

    We did leave a day early due to the incoming storm which was a shame but overall the experience was lovely. Right on the beach of West Bexington with the lovely Club House restaurant opposite. We visited West Bay, Weymouth, Chesil Beach, the Hive (sister restaurant to CH) and Lyme Regis (even saw Tom Daley peddling up the hill on his comic relief mission!) whilst the property is remote enough for a lovely secluded holiday (just what we wanted) it is also close enough to some beautiful scenic beaches and Morrisons was only about 15 minutes by car for the all important shop. We would love to stay here again but I suspect it is booked out!! it should be... and don't even get me started on the window seat and its views. Thank you for allowing us to spend time in Beach Haven. Our batteries are recharged.

  • "Hi we really enjoyed our stay at beach haven, however there are a few small things which would make a great improvement."

    The interior doors need attention as a few don’t close and click so was difficult to keep dogs out of downstairs rooms. The double doors into the kitchen need a foam draft excluder around the wood as due to lack of furnishings this door is extremely noisy when it is opened and closed causing disturbance to everyone. The kitchen is a great space but lacking worktop area…there is a great need for a breakfast bar/island and there is plenty of room for it…once we unloaded our alcohol onto worktop there was no room for food prep. ..we did inform the maintenance that the sofas had no been vacuumed and contained all sorts under the cushions and there was also collected dust under beds and in bathrooms…. Other than this beach haven is a lovely cottage.

About the location


Abbotsbury 3 miles; Bridport 6 miles.

Lying next to the sea and Chesil Beach, equidistant between Burton Bradstock and Abbotsbury, is the small village of West Bexington. This is a stunning area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as well as an area of Special Scientific Interest - pebbled Chesil Beach, which extends for 14 miles, from Burton Bradstock to the Portland peninsula, is part of the Jurassic Coast and now a World Heritage Site. Fishermen and walkers are well provided for, as a great variety of fish can be caught at any time of year, and the South West Coastal Path runs right alongside the beach. Only confident swimmers should attept to swim here, but Weymouth, offering lovely, gently shelving sands, is only a short drive away. There's lots to see and do within easy reach of the village. No journey to this area would be complete without a visit to picturesque Abbotsbury, 3 miles, with its Swannery, Tithe Barn and Sub Tropical Gardens, with Dorchester, Bridport, and Lyme Regis all within easy reach.

This property welcomes up to two well behaved dogs, all dogs must be above 1 year of age and flea treated before visiting the property.
Please note there is a 21 GBP pet charge per pet, per week.
Note: Wessex Water will be relining waste pipes in the local area from Feb 26th – Mar 15th 2024. Access to be maintained.
