    “There were only FOUR coathangers for the whole flat?”

    Really missed having a washing machine. For 900 for one week, having to use a laundrette felt ver poor practise. Garage was very narrow. We were only just able to fit a Honda Jazz in. Proximity to beach was a real bonus

The property

With views over the harbour, this comfortable and generous apartment located in the heart of West Bay, is the ideal setting from which to discover the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline of Dorset.

Harbour Scene is perfect families or a small group of friends who want to enjoy a holiday within walking distance of the beach and South West Coastal path.

Set all on one level, this second-floor apartment welcomes you in through the generous hallway.

The delightful balcony, where you can sit and admire the stunning views over the harbour with a morning coffee or evening glass of wine, is accessed from the open plan sitting dining room.

The generous kitchen has plenty of space for preparing wonderful meals and the bedrooms, with either a coastal view over the beach or a harbour view are bright and comfortable.

A leisurely stroll around West Bay, famous for it’s location and scenes in the TV series Broadchurch, will not disappoint you.

With the sights of a busy fishing harbour and the noise of the fishermen landing their daily catch, brought together with the delicious smells of fresh fish and chips by the sea you won’t want to travel far to enjoy a day out.

You will also discover numerous local restaurants, pubs and shops for all your daily needs.

There is lots to discover within easy driving distance; Charmouth, Lyme Regis and Exmouth off to the west, Burton Bradstock, Abbotsbury, The Isle of Portland and Weymouth to the east.

The market town of Bridport is within a 2 mile walk, here you can explore the weekly vintage market and antiques.

Harbour View is perfectly positioned for all this area of the Jurassic Coast has to offer at any time of the year.

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 Coastal Path with beautiful clifftop views and beaches and the Brit Valley Way taking you north into the rolling hills of Dorset, as well as ample opportunities to try your hand at sea fishing, golf, fossil hunting, boating. Visit the nearby Palmers Brewery, over 225 years old and the only thatched brewery in the UK, 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, with two weekly markets and festivals throughout the year. 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.
