  • “The apartment was larger than expected and had all the essentials required.”

    We did not expect to find washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, bin liners or cleaning cloths so this was nice. The kitchen was well stocked of pots and pans and all essential cooking equipment. We were able to cook our meals in the apartment without any issues. The beds were very comfortable and both bedrooms very spacious. I do not usually sleep well for a couple of days when being somewhere different but I slept well every night so a big bonus for me. There was a hoover, iron and ironing ...

    We did not expect to find washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, bin liners or cleaning cloths so this was nice. The kitchen was well stocked of pots and pans and all essential cooking equipment. We were able to cook our meals in the apartment without any issues. The beds were very comfortable and both bedrooms very spacious. I do not usually sleep well for a couple of days when being somewhere different but I slept well every night so a big bonus for me. There was a hoover, iron and ironing board, clothes airer and cleaning equipment - we did not use them all but good to know they are available if required. We did use some of the cleaning equipment to clean the patio doors to the balcony so we could see the beautiful view from them - although this could be an endless tasks if there is lots of wind and rain which is why the doors and windows were not clear. The shower was dripping when we arrived but we were told this will be sorted by the plumber which it was and the shower was replaced which was much better and the water pressure was good, however, we did run out of hot water when all 4 of us showered and 3 washed their (long) hair which was more time consuming and therefore not enough hot water for all. I appreciated the little sewing box in the drawer as I needed to use this which meant I was able to wear the item of clothing again. We also played some of the board games that were in the drawers although we had brought some of our own in case of rainy days - which we only had 2. We enjoyed looking around the area, including all the shops and did plenty of walking. The beach was also great for the kids and their fossil hunting and my husband did some fishing off the beach whilst I managed some sunbathing for a few hours (until the cloud came over). Having the garage to park the car was great and it also kept it dry from the couple of windy wet days we had. We have a large car but was able to fit it in the garage although everyone got out before parking it as there was not much room to the side even when parked right over to one side. We visited Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Monkey World (this one is a favourite of ours and we try and go once yearly). Weymouth was lovely but we did not manage to visit Portland which was recommended to us.

About the location

WEST BAY

Bridport 1.5 miles; Lyme Regis 7 miles.

West Bay, fondly known as “The Gateway To The Dorset Jurassic Coast”, nestles beneath 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, or even try scuba diving. 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.
