West Bexington is simply a little road with pretty houses either side. The road however leads to a wonderful beach and the village itself is surrounded by lush, green countryside.
There is no real reason to pass through West Bexington, which gives it a tranquil feel. Many fishermen choose to come here to this part of Chesil beach since the fishing is so good here.
The good thing about staying in a holiday cottage in West Bexington is that you will be just a stone’s throw from the beach. It’s a shingle beach, great for walking and soaking up the views, or perhaps doing the summer nature walk, which takes you off the beach, through pretty flower filled meadows and pastures. The South West Coastal path runs straight along Chesil beach so there are plenty of walks to enjoy here.
If a golden sandy beach is your preference then the blue flag, sandy beach at Weymouth is just 13 miles away and a pleasant drive along the coast through picture perfect villages. From sleepy West Bexington, Weymouth will provide a bit more of a buzz, with its beach Punch and Judy shows, donkey rides and chippies on the one part, and the other, the pretty fishing harbour, surrounded by beautiful pastel houses, pubs, restaurants and quaint tearooms.
Abbotsbury is just a 10 minute drive away, offering the wonderful Abbotsbury Swannery, Abbotsbury Sub-Tropical Gardens and the Abbotsbury Children’s Farm. An amble through the village will take you past rows of old stone cottages, beautiful thatched chocolate box dwellings, and a lovely family friendly pub.
For a beachside location but with the countryside views, West Bexington is a great choice for staying in a peaceful holiday cottage with as little or as much to do as you like.
