  • "Such a lovely week."

    Very comfortable property, well decorated and equipped. Plenty of space inside and out. Views from property were amazing. Many lovely evenings spent sat on patio enjoying the view and relaxing with a chilled glass of wine.

  • "There is a broken fence panel as you sit facing the sea it's in the fence there ."

    It's means the garden isn't secure. But other than that lovely holiday .

    We will get this fixed as soon as possible. I was not aware until I read your feedback. Thank you and my apologies. Property Owner

  • "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 around....it 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

  • "Thank you for an amazing stay."

    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. We are at the restaurant opposite where the food was amazing and was blessed with the best weather. We will definitely look at booking again. Thank you

  • "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.

  • "This was our second time staying here and we had a lovely time."

    My only criticism is that the two big sofas in the living room are showing their age and aren’t very comfortable to sit on, not enough support in the seat cushions

  • "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.

  • "Beach Haven is just the most beautiful house."

    The interior design is exceptional. It is equipped to a very high standard. But the biggest plus point is its amazing location. Its position right opposite a high class restaurant and just a stone's throw from the beach is unrivalled. We loved everything about it. We would return tomorrow. Shame it is so popular, but we understand why.

    It was perfect for our needs. The master bedroom bed was so comfy one of the best we have slept on which is important for us. It was very well equipped and would say its one of the nicest places we have stayed in. Would highly recommend .

The property

This sophisticated four-bedroom property, recently internally renovated to a luxurious standard and adjacent to the beach, offers spacious accommodation for a family or group looking for a coastal retreat to Dorset.

Beach Haven is a large detached property, with a fully furnished, well equipped, sleek and modern kitchen, ideal for preparing meals for your family, where you can enjoy the sea views whilst relaxing around the dining table in the open-plan kitchen/diner space.

The patio doors in the kitchen open up to the patio area and garden, where you can continue to enjoy the stunning coastal views.

The property has a large sitting room, offering the perfect place to relax with three sofas, a Smart TV and a delightful wood burning stove, with views from every window reaching out to the beach, just in front of the property and further along the coastline, where Portland can be seen to the east and Lyme bay to the west on a clear day, while the patio doors from the sitting room lead out into the garden.

The ground-floor master super-king-size bedroom has wonderful sea views, a TV and a convenient en-suite shower room.

There is also a children's bunk bedroom, a twin bedroom with sea views and on the first floor you will find an airy king-size bedroom which showcases the stunning coastal views.

Outside there is driveway parking for three cars and a rear lawn and patio garden with a barbecue area, outdoor furniture and table tennis to entertain the family.

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.
