  • "We have stayed at this property before and the standard of cleanness and decor is second to none although we have not been here for some years it is still very good indeed everything you would need is at this property, also close to the harbour which makes it ideal."

  • "Very good stay and accommodation."

    Only one negative thing, electrician turned up to do work on balcony and while we worked round that, some notification would have been good

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We thought the electrical work was taking place the previous week so we are very sorry for the mix up and that you had no notice. Thank you for your understanding and we are pleased you had a good time Property Owner

  • "Lovely apartment in a great location."

    The weather was against us so didn't do much exploring, locally, but made the most of the buses to Weymouth and Bridport. The welcome pack was lovely. As pointed out by previous holiday makers, the bath/shower definitely needs more safety handles for those of us of a certain age. The only hand rail was on the wall at the bottom of the bath. Anyone with balance problems has a very good chance of falling onto the shower screen, which swings outwards, which could be a reason not to re-book this great property. Shower cubicles, these days are definitely the way to go.

    Thank you for your feedback we have taken your comment into consideration. Nov 2023 - we have fitted an additional hand rail in the bath Property Owner

    Thank you very much for your feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your stay and would stay again Property Owner

  • "Lovely stay at this beautiful apartment."

    It was spacious, light and airy. We had everything we needed plus the bonus of a welcome pack (thank you). This is an ideal base for exploring this beautiful part of the country, lots of walks from the doorstep so it was great to leave the car in the car park. The space in the car park is a bit tight but we managed. The key safe is in a terrible place for those of us with dodgy knees.

  • "Excellent, well-appointed flat in a good location."

    The flat was clean and modern with all the fittings we required - and more. For a three-night stay it was perfect for the two of us. The shared areas were also clean and in excellent condition.

  • "This is one of the best holiday homes we have stayed in."

    However please note that the shower would be improved if a vertical hand hold was added on the left where the person stands.

    Thank you for your feedback, we have fitted an additional hand rail Property Owner

  • "We really loved the flat - well equipped and an amazing location."

    Thank you very much for the generous welcome pack full of Dorset goodies. The only problem, which I'm sure could be fixed, was that it was impossible to make the shower any cooler than very warm which in the heat we had and with children, made it a bit tricky to have showers. The bath was the same. We followed all the instructions, but I think there is a fault with it. The fridge perhaps needs turning down, as food at the back was getting frozen. Apart from that, we would definitely recommend the flat to friends, in fact we already have.

    Thank you for your feedback and I’m pleased to advise that a new shower/bath control has now been installed Property Owner

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.
