  • "Well located, modernly furnished, comfortable."

    Well equipped first floor studio apartment. However to improve the rating the mould, ants, and replacing the shower head could be addressed

    Many thanks for your feedback, we take our commitment to making all guests feel comfortable seriously. We would have welcomed an alert during your stay, so that we could have addressed any problems. We are not aware of the presence of ants or mould but we will investigate thoroughly and of course make sure that any issues are put right. Update: we have now installed a new showerhead.

  • "Flat was very comfortable & well equipped."

    Lots of little extras in the cupboards but i missed out on the welcome pack mentioned ( there was milk) but I assume that was because I booked last minute. My only disappointment was the ‘balcony’. A table & chairs at the end of the entrance walkway is not how I would describe a balcony. As it was winter it was okay but I would think twice if it was summer. Would i come again yes!

    Many thanks for your feedback, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We pulled out all the stops to get the flat ready for you at only a couple of hours notice, so I'm afraid we were not able to provide everything we normally do for the welcome pack. The table and chairs outside the front door is a lovely place to sit when the weather is warm, it has a really pleasant view especially as the sun goes down when the light really catches the hill . Yes is on the walk way into the flat but, as we are the flat on the end no one else uses this area, so it provides a welcome bit of private outside space, in addition to the shared garden to the rear. We'd be very happy to welcome you back to the flat at any time. Property Owner

The property

Nestled paces away from the harbour and tranquil golden sands in West Bay, Dorset, is 24 Heron Court.

This wonderful, first-floor, studio-style apartment benefits from a fantastic location near the sea and an array of nearby local amenities, permit parking, which is a rarity in this coastal town, and a spacious interior with a sofa bed, perfect for couples seeking a romantic getaway or small families looking for some seaside fun.

Climb the stairs and cross the threshold and head straight into the fully-equipped separate kitchen where you can pamper your partner with a delicious meal while they unwind in front of the TV on the plush sofa.

The living/dining space and double bed can be found in a studio-style sitting area, alongside a sofa bed sleeping two additional guests, and here you can dine together at the intimate table before stepping outside to the private walkway where there is a sitting area, watch as the sun sets behind the sea, and be sure to toast your getaway in this truly memorable setting!

When stars fill the sky, wash off the day in the sleek shower room before relaxing off to sleep in the comfy double bed, situated in the studio-style living space.

Tear yourself away from this idyllic setting to stock up on essentials at the local store or delight in date night at pubs or restaurants, like the Boathouse or the stylish Station Kitchen which both serve delicious food.

On sunny days head down to Bridport Beach, where you can soak up the sun, or try something more thrilling by taking to water on paddles boards or boats, the perfect way to admire breath-taking views across the azure sea.

Don't miss the wealth of history lining the Jurassic Coast; start at the West Bay Discovery Centre before following the impressive South West Coast path to find Charmouth, home to a heritage centre showcasing fossils.

Lyme Regis lies a little further down the coast and boasts an insightful museum and Dinosaurland Fossil Museum, which displays over 9000 fossils.

There is also Lyme Regis Fossil Beach, where you can immerse yourself in the past by walking over years of evolutionary progression; a spectacular and unique opportunity!

All this and more awaits at 24 Heron Court.

A parking permit is provided but a space is not guaranteed.
Spiral staircase leading to property , also a alternative second set of stairs leading to the property which are normal.

About the location


Bridport 1.5 miles; Lyme Regis 11 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 Coast Path, as well as ample opportunities to try your hand at sea fishing, crabbing, boating and golf. Visit the homes of 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 West takes you to Charmouth for fossil hunting, to the picturesque seaside resort of Lyme Regis, and to River Cottage HQ near Axminster. To the East are the lovely Sub-tropical Gardens and Swannery at Abbotsbury, and the golden sands of Weymouth. This wonderful location makes an ideal base for a great family holiday.
