  • Mrs Brown

    “Thorncroft is a lovely, spacious and immaculately clean holiday home.”

    A fantastic location for the beaches as well as spectacular coastal walks. Wonderful to have the sea on your doorstep and not need to use the car. Comfortable beds and really well maintained, the photos don’t do justice the spacious feel of the house. Lovely to have a garden too. Worth mentioning that there is a house being built next door, this didn’t disturb us but should probably be mentioned as there are bound to be occasions when there is some noise from builders. ...

We would definitely return to this property.

The property

An attractive chalet-style bungalow located in the popular seaside resort of West Bay and just a short walk from the town centre is Thorncroft.

This spacious accommodation is ideal for families seeking to discover the delights of the Jurassic coastline of Dorset and the surrounding countryside.

Entering through the front door, you will find a well-equipped kitchen where you can create tasty meals which can be enjoyed in the dining room whilst you sit and plan your itinerary together.

From here you will find a spacious and welcoming sitting room where you can gather and recap on the days’ events or catch up on your favourite TV shows before you head to bed.

Concluding the ground floor is the well-presented double bedroom, whilst climbing the stairs will bring you to one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, where you can relax and unwind after your day on the beach or exploring the town.

Head out into the garden through the sun room to the enclosed garden, where the large lawn allows children and dogs to play whilst you sit and enjoy a good book with a morning coffee or an evening glass of wine.

Thorncroft is a short leisurely walk into the town of West Bay, famous for its location and scenes in the TV series Broadchurch, with the sights of a busy fishing harbour and delicious smells of fish and chips by the sea, you don’t need to travel far to enjoy a lovely day out.

With numerous local restaurants, pubs and shops, there is lots to discover in this popular Dorset town.

If you do wish to venture a little further, head for Charmouth, Lyme Regis or Exmouth off to the west, or Burton Bradstock, Abbotsbury, The Isle of Portland and Weymouth to the east.

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 Coastal Path, as well as ample opportunities to try your hand at sea fishing, golf, fossil hunting, boating. Visits the homes on 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 takes you to the picturesque seaside resort of Lyme Regis, the lovely sub-tropical gardens and swannery at Abbotsbury, or the golden sands of Weymouth. This wonderful location makes an ideal base for a great family holiday.
