The property

Washingpools is renovated holiday home where sheep used to be dipped historically and it’s located in West Bexington, a charming coastal village in Dorset. It’s a lovely retreat for couples as the property sleeps two people.

Washingpools welcomes two well-behaved dogs. The property has everything you need for a comfortable holiday with cosy and comfortable bedroom and a shower room.

Few minutes’ walk across the fields will take you to the famous Chesil beach, a 18-mile stretching pebble beach which is home to rare species of wildlife and common Dorset birds.

The property is popular with birdwatchers, walkers and guests who love a quiet location. Within a walking distance you will find a charming tea room where you can relax with a cup of tea after a walk or you can choose to head home to your comfortable and cosy cottage sheltered from the busy life.

Warm up your feet by the fire with a book or a glass of red and enjoy a calm evening.

Get some fresh local produce in a farm shop nearby in the village.

If you need a larger shopping, the village of Burton Bradstock has a full-week working shop and the market town of Bridport with many shops, supermarket and a farmer’s market is a short drive away. Beautiful seaside town of Weymouth with sandy beach perfect for basking in the sun or a swim is a few miles West. Washingpools is a charming base to explore and get away with your loved one for a week or more and be surrounded by astonishing nature.

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.

Region Information

Note: max 2 people. Note: no WiFi. Note: whilst part of Washingpool's charm is being 'off the beaten track' and surrounded by countryside, please be aware that the access is quite literally off the beaten track! There is a short drive of 2-3 minutes down a private road which is bumpy and unmade in places. The last 20 yards from the parking area is on foot down a concrete slope to a small metal walkway over a pretty little stream and then a few steps across grass to the front door. Please do not deviate from the concreted area as you may get stuck in the mud. Note: please take care when turning your car, there is a bump in the concrete paving and grass opposite so stay on the paved area whilst turning. Note: we advise arriving in daylight to find the access lane and onward to the property. Please bring a torch if arriving in the dark.
