  • “Other flats in this block we have stayed in have a tumble dryer above the washer which we found useful, here you have to use the heated towel rails to dry washing.”

    It is not a major issue but would have been useful

The property

Fishermen's Steps is a spacious, bright harbourside apartment with stunning views over West Bay Harbour in Dorset, just two miles away from the market town of Bridport.

All rooms are on the ground floor offering beautiful harbour views from the open plan living area.

Enjoy your breakfast looking through the window to the rolling hills behind the harbour, or enjoy the benefit of the balcony and sitting area there.

The apartment can accommodate up to four people with two bedrooms, the master bedroom boasts an en-suite bathroom, making it perfect for couples or a family.

The decor displays a sea theme throughout - a beautiful touch by the owners. Set right in the centre of West Bay you are perfectly located for exploring this breath-taking section of Jurassic Coastline on foot.

If you wish to explore further afield, West Bay is centrally placed so you can head east towards Portland and Weymouth, or West to Charmouth and Lyme Regis.

Charmouth and Lyme Regis are famous for fossil hunting, so you can bring a souvenir home found on the beach.

If you are up for an energetic clifftop walk, head back to West bay and take in the stunning scenery of the Jurassic coast.

You will pass Golden Cap – at 191 metres, it is the highest point on the south coast of Great Britain. The lovely market town of Bridport is just two miles away and gives you all you would expect from a country market town, including independent and high street shops, as well as local food and antique markets.

However, you may decide to just park up and relax as Fishermen's Steps has you all you need to relax right there, and West Bay has a lively harbourside kiosk culture, offering freshly caught seafood, local ice-cream and fish and chips, complimented by restaurants and bars. Fishermen’s Steps is a comfortable and bright apartment that will have you yearning to return soon.

About the location


Bridport 1.5 miles; Lyme Regis 7 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 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.
