  • "No complaints."

    A 3 bedroom mid terrace house. Very spacious living room, fair sized dining area. 2 double and 1 small bedroom. We only used 1 bedroom which was very comfortable. The house was nice and cool inside during the very hot spells. Kitchen was pretty well stocked and anyone could cook any meal without any problems. A good shower and plenty of hot water. We never used the TV so can't comment, wi fi good indoors . If anyone is on O2 there is no mobile connection, despite their map saying there is. 4g in West bexington is non existent. Gripes, no oven gloves, no grater,only 2 dishwasher tablets and no spare toilet roll. As a gardener I found the very basic garden care frustrating! Would we go back? Definitely consider it, very good base, friendly neighbours and a choice of 2 good places to eat. Lots to explore, especially if you are a walker. The beach is large shingle and mainly used by beach fishers, swimming only advised if you are competent and strong.

  • "The standard of cleanliness at Sea Views was very good and it was very well equipped."

    Just perfect for a short holiday with a dog.

  • "A nice cottage in a picturesque area with views of the sea."

    Comfortable seating and bedding, most things you should need in the ample sized kitchen/diner although the hob extractor is quite useless at extracting!! Replacing the missing door between the kitchen and lounge would be a good idea to stop cooking smells and toddlers going where they shouldn't. Garden was ok. The second parking space is only any good if you have a small car, something you're only told AFTER booking. A short walk to the beach. Overall a nice cottage, would we book again? probably. A word of warning, you're asked to clean the whole place before leaving to help the cleaners, strange!!! Not sure if this is a Sykes thing or the owners.

  • "A really lovely cottage close to a gorgeous beach."

    Everything you need and great enclosed back garden if you have a dog. Our second visit - really love the location.

  • "Seaviews was a comfortable place to stay and made a good base for our holiday."

    It had everything we needed and was surface clean but it could really do with a deep clean as there were cobwebs (not new ones) and dust all around the house. The drawers in the masterbedroom were full of hair and the duvet had clearly had something spilt on it at some point. The coffee and tea on arrival was very welcome and we were pleasently suprised by some nice sun loungers in the cupboard. As previous reviews had said more detailed info on the bins would be helpful as every council does not have the same system. This could be a really lovely cottage in a fab location, just needs a bit more tlc, otherwise we really enjoyed our stay.

  • "The property is in a great location, situated so close to the beach that you can hear the waves from the garden and you can see the sea from every window."

    It was very clean and tidy. There was a pub with good food just up the road and several others within a five minute drive.

  • "Lovely property in a relaxed setting with loads of space."

    Some kitchen equipment is a little tired and some utensils not as clean as I would hope for. I would suggest a small selection of games and information on local attractions. M³ore information regarding your bins, it wasn't until after our departure that I was aware of recycling and food waste bins.

  • "The property was filthy, faeces in the toilet."

    The whole place thick with dust, dirty floors. dirty sink. dirty bath. mould in washing machine making it unusable. spent my first day cleaning. bathroom sink taps needed fixing. bed very uncomfortable, mattress old and thin. dirty sheets in the twin room. pictures advertising the place are old, furniture and ornaments have been removed. No welcome pack. dog bowl was green. We were not allowed in till 5 pm, we assumed it was because they were cleaning thoroughly due to covid. NO CLEANING HAD BEEN DONE! just towels left. had to be out by 10am so you pretty much loose a whole days holiday. Then spend your first day cleaning. so 2 days lost. Beware The owners are conning you! NO Cleaning or Maintenance has been done. We stayed here 4 years ago and it was lovely, clean comfortable, lovely welcome basket for us and one for the dog. This time was such a disappointment. The area is nice, but for the money im sure you could find a cleaner place to stay

  • "We thought some sort of half door/gate through from kitchen to sitting room would be helpful to keep wet dogs from going through to the carpeted area."

    The enclosed garden was a real bonus. We will definitely book this property again.

  • "Had a great stay, lovely location and clean, tidy and comfortable house."

    The add does not do it justice! I would however suggest some updated garden furniture and an umbrella for the hotter days. Also as there are no shops close by just the basics like sugar tea and coffee would of been useful. I would recommend the club house for food just down the road lovely food and great views. Also the hive beach cafe was another nice place good food and lovely walks. I would happily stay here again.

  • "Cottage could be better looked after especially the garden."

    Old picnic table could be replaced with newer more comfortable garden furniture, fence could be maintained and repaired so dog is secure in the garden, a parasol for the table would have allowed us to eat outside in the sunshine and enjoy the outside area and weeds could be removed. A coffee machine would be good addition to kitchen. Bed in main bedroom was comfortable, kitchen pretty well-equipped and the owner was very helpful and quickly at the property when we had small issue with a stuck cupboard door on day 1. Location is great, very close to the sea and lovely pub/restaurant with good walking possiblities all around the area and along the coastal path.

Partial views of Chesil Beach can be seen from the front of the property, as well as views of Lyme Regis and beyond providing you with the perfect inspiration for a day out.

Head down to the pebble beach which is just a few minutes walk and stroll along the water, afterwards enjoying a refreshment at the beach café.

Situated on the World Heritage Jurassic coastline, and only a short drive away, is the vibrant arts and crafts town of Bridport with many attractions to explore.

Weymouth, to the east, with its Georgian seafront, old harbour and long stretch of sandy beach is a real treat and offers a wide range of family attractions along with an abundance of shops, restaurants and cafés.

Go north to climb Hardy’s Monument and take in the panoramic views all around over the glorious Dorset countryside or spend time in the picture-postcard village of Abbotsbury, home to the Sub-Tropical Gardens, Swannery and Animal Park.

About the location

WEST BEXINGTON

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.

Note: Wessex Water will be relining waste pipes in the local area from Feb 26th – Mar 15th 2024. Access to be maintained.
