    “I loved The Roddy House, everything we needed for our self catering stay, very safe enclosed garden for our dog.”

    Amazing location with a lovely short walk right onto West Bay beach with other beaches not to far away to drive to either. Would definitely stay here again.

The property

Resting just moments away from the popular resort town of West Bay, which sits along Dorset’s stunning Jurassic Coast, is The Roddy House, a lovely three-bedroom detached thatched property.

This superb property offers an outstanding self-catering experience in one of the most sought after areas within Dorset, which was popularised by the ITV series, Broadchurch.

The property enjoys a wealth of character, as well as contemporary features and furnishings, providing an excellent level of accommodation for a family or group of friends to enjoy this beautiful part of Dorset.

Soak up the surroundings of West Bay before pushing open the front door to discover the stylish sitting room, where a plush seating arrangement invites you to unwind in front of the Smart TV and the gas fire offers a gentle warmth during the winter evenings.

From here, discover the well-equipped kitchen, containing everything you could possibly need to cater for your own home-cooked dishes, before regrouping with your loved ones within the light-filled conservatory dining space to relish in each other’s company over good food and drinks.

Afterwards, sink into the armchairs within this space to flick on the Smart TV or delve into that book that you have been meaning to read.

Make your way up the staircase to find the three bedrooms, comprising for two plush king-size bedrooms and a single bedroom, each one designed with a refreshing colour palette, quality linens and good storage space.

The garden at The Roddy House offers a magnificent enclosed patio, where you can look forward to soaking up the sunshine as you relax on the patio furniture.

If you can tear yourself away from this oasis, take a short stroll into the centre of West Bay, where you will be spoilt for choice by the selection of eateries that await, ranging from restaurants serving locally caught fresh fish to tasty fish and chip shops to an array of takeaways, as well as shops for picking up any essentials.

Beachcombers can make their way down to the beach to laze on the shoreline, or delight in a fishing trip to enjoy the stunning cliff top scenery from the water.

Fossil hunters can look forward to exploring the ancient Jurassic Coastline to bring home a unique souvenir, whilst avid ramblers can walk along the iconic South West Coastal Path to soak up some breath-taking views.

Alternatively, venture to the nearby village of Abbotsbury, home to the famous Abbotsbury Swannery along with Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens for a delightful day out with the whole family, or travel slightly further afield to the lively, seaside town of Weymouth, where there is an array of attractions including SEA LIFE Centre Weymouth and Sandworld.

Be sure to pay a visit to the beautiful town of Lyme Regis to the west of West Bay where you can marvel at the collections in Dinosaurland Fossil Museum or meet the underwater creatures at Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium, before soaking up the sunshine at Monmouth Beach and Sandy Beach.

Make wonderful memories at The Roddy House along the unforgettable Dorset coast.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
