  • "Beautiful house in the perfect location by the beach to explore the Jurassic coast."

    It’s barely 30 seconds straight onto the coastal path from a private residents only access one way and another minute the other way onto West Beach and into West Bay centre. We really enjoyed the open plan upstairs and spent too many hours rain or shine getting lost in the seaview. We wanted a quiet beach holiday so was happy with off season West Bay which still provided plenty of options for all our needs. Judging from the holiday parks around West Bay, we imagine it gets heaving in summer months. As the other guests mentioned we also received a lovely hamper with tasty Dorset treats! Yummy! We would recommend the host consider providing some cleaning products and extra tea towels and bin liner. We didn’t find any recycling facility which is weird as the other residents had recycling and composting bins. If we were ever back in Dorset, would definitely be looking to stay in Sandy Combe again!

  • "What a fabulous house!"

    Stylish and well equipped, it really felt like home for our very sunny week in Dorset. We loved the sea views and the 20 metre walk from the garden gate to the cliff top benches, enjoying a glass of wine whilst taking in the stunning views and the glorious sunsets. We loved every minute of our stay here and we really didn’t want to go home…especially our two dogs who thoroughly enjoyed living their best life by the sea. The gorgeous welcome hamper was a lovely touch too. Thank you so much to the owners for sharing their lovely home and if you rent it out again next year, I’m sure we will be back.

  • "Beautiful house in a stunning location with lovely views."

    Ample space, very comfortable, nice garden. Beds comfortable. Very short walk to beaches and harbour, coastal path just a few steps from house. Veranda was wonderful spot to catch sun and enjoy the view. Only negative was cleanliness. Kitchen and bathroom sinks, toilets and shower clean, but mirrors, floors, radiators, window sills etc were not as clean as I expected and there were no cleaning products available for me to remedy thus, so I had to purchase. Apart from this we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return.

  • "This is a wonderful holiday rental."

    It is very comfortable and within easy reach of many sites. The information binder is very useful. Toys and baby seat much appreciated. Being able to walk to shops and the beach was really wonderful.

  • "An absolute gem of a property, the information and facilities provided for the guests were pitched just right, enough to get us going."

    The welcome hamper was a nice touch. The general upkeep and high quality of the property did not go unnoticed, it made the property feel like a home away from home, and somewhere we looked forward to getting back to. it was a pleasure to stay there. If I had to say any negatives, they are small, after my shower walking bare foot in the main bedroom, my feet were covered in dust?! maybe the rugs were not hoovered? And the bin situation was a bit confusing, with no recycle bins etc.. and a full blue wheelie bin on the Saturday that we arrived.

    Dear Dipesh, Thank you for your feedback. Sandy Combe is our home rather than just a holiday home and we will probably let it again next Summer if you would like to return. The bins are commercially operated while we are letting and recycling is not possible which is a shame. We are very pleased you enjoyed yourselves. Best wishes, Tony and Liz Property Owner

  • "What an amazing property in an amazing location."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our week there and were reluctant to come home. An area of improvement would be the cleanliness, it wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t spick and span! You could see under the sofas were quite thick with dust and there was a lot of cobwebs. Nothing to affect our stay but I would have expected the cleaning to have been of a better standard for the cost of the holiday.

    Hi Jessica, Thanks for the feedback and we are delighted that you had a good time. You are our first guests and you will not believe how hard we worked getting the place ready but we will make sure the cleaning is more thorough next time, the 9ft + ceilings don't help! Property Owner

The property

Enjoying stunning, coastal views across West Bay in Dorset is Sandy Combe, a fabulous, reverse-level home.

Just paces away from the beach and a hub of activity, Sandy Combe offers a contemporary and well-equipped base for a large group break, inviting eight guests and two furry companions to enjoy the Dorset AONB.

Park up on the private driveway, taking in the breath-taking cliff vistas from your new abode.

Step indoors to be greeted by four, ground-floor bedrooms, including three doubles, one of which benefits from an en-suite, and a twin bedroom, providing plenty of space to rest.

On the ground floor you'll also locate a handy utility, a lovely garden room with views out to the garden, offering the ideal place to unwind with a good book, and the family bathroom.

Travel upstairs to be wowed by the open-plan living space, where you can relax, prepare and enjoy delicious meals, and bask in your surroundings upon the balcony, overlooking the glistening coastline.

If you'd prefer to dine alfresco, make the most of your private garden, where you can enjoy the sunshine and toast to your getaway, before exploring your surroundings some more.

Head into West Bay to stock up on the essentials, to dine out, and to relish in a beach day, where you can also hike along the West Bat Promenade or follow the Jurassic Coast trail for a fabulous vantage point.

Stop off in Bridport for a round of golf at the Bridport & West Dorset Golf Club or brush up on your local knowledge at Bridport Museum, whilst the renowned Chesil Beach, resting upon the West Dorset Heritage Coast is nearby, where you can relax, build sandcastles, and enjoy an afternoon of water sports.

Round off your seascape in Lyme Regis, home to the Lyme Regis Museum, the Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium, and the delightful Lyme Regis Fossil Beach, perfect for fossil hunting, before returning home in time for sundowners.

Take to the coast with Sandy Combe as your home-from-home.

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.
