The property

Located just a short distance from the seaside town of West Bay, lies Roundham Cottage, a lovingly converted holiday home offering a superb location for a self-catering break in delightful Dorset.

This recently refurbished one bedroom property is set out all on one level and is a comfortable and cosy retreat for a couple looking to enjoy the Jurassic Coast and all the beauty it has to offer.

Upon entering the property, you will be welcomed into the well-presented open plan kitchen, living dining room where you can unwind in front of the TV or make plans for how you will spend the next few days of your stay and, in the kitchen, you will find everything you need to cook up a homely dinner to be enjoyed at the dining table whilst carrying on your conversations of the memories made so far.

As the day draws to close, retire to the stylish bedroom and delve into that book that you have been meaning to read before a tranquil night’s sleep comes, preparing you for another day of exploring the pretty town of West Bay.

Step out onto the patio and decking area and enjoy a breath of fresh air in the peaceful surroundings with your morning cup or coffee or an evening glass of wine at the, and in the warmer months, why not dine alfresco and watch the sun set on another day well spent with your loved one.

West Bay is a short stroll away and is home to many restaurants and pubs serving locally caught fresh fish and there are many shops where you can pick up your daily essentials or even discover a unique souvenir to take back home to remind you of your time on the stunning Dorset coast.

The busy fishing harbour is a sight to relish in and from here you can take boat trips out to sea, allowing you to admiring the truly spectacular clifftop scenery and ancient Jurassic coastline, or simply watch the world go by from the beautiful beach while soaking up the sun and doing a spot of swimming in the clear, blue waters.

There are plenty of attractions to visit during your holiday as, to the east of West Bay, you will find the charming little village of Abbotsbury, home to both the Swannery and Sub-tropical Gardens, both a lovely day spent, while the popular town of Weymouth is a little further out with its attractive Georgian esplanade lined with cafes, pubs and tourist shops Weymouth boasts local attractions such as the Sea Life Centre, where you can discover some spectacular underwater marine life from sharks and turtles to seals and stingrays, The Nothe Fort where you can uncover some fascinating history on a tour around the grounds and, not forgetting the long sweeping golden beach which stretches as far as the eye can see where you can feel the sand between your toes while you tuck into a traditional Dorset ice cream!

However you choose to spend your holiday, Roundham Cottage provides a fantastic base where you are sure to make some unforgettable memories and want to visit again and again.

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 Coast Path, as well as ample opportunities to try your hand at sea fishing, crabbing, boating and golf. Visit the homes of 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 West takes you to Charmouth for fossil hunting, to the picturesque seaside resort of Lyme Regis, and to River Cottage HQ near Axminster. To the East are the lovely Sub-tropical Gardens and Swannery at Abbotsbury, and the golden sands of Weymouth. This wonderful location makes an ideal base for a great family holiday.
