Enjoy the fantastic Dorset countryside and sea views from Fossil and The Cross Cottage, a converted stone built cottage.  The setting is wonderful, with gardens overlooking the South West Dorset Coast and fields of West Bexington which slope down to the sea.  Fossil and The Cross Cottage, with its two bedrooms and sociable kitchen / lounge / diner, is perfect for a small family or couple's break.  From the lounge, in sunny weather, open the patio doors and enjoy the patio area with table and chairs and beyond this a lawned area where you can relax, have a picnic or play a game.  In chilly weather snuggle up in the lounge, add some wood to the log burner and partake in a warming hot chocolate.  Pull on some wellingtons for a walk and with a short hop and skip across two fields and you will find yourself directly on a stretch of the world famous Chesil Beach.  This stretch of beach is frequented by fishermen and you will often see them sitting under their colourful little tents, it's also a haven for walkers and sun worshippers.  A little tea room is within walking distance following the path across the field, ideal for a cup of tea after a hearty walk or just head home to your comfy, compact, cottage sheltered from the elements; kick off your wellies and warm your feet by the log burner. Fossil and The Cross is charming and full of character. Relax off the beaten track to the sounds of birds rather than sit in traffic; in fact the cottage is accessed via a partially unmade road.  Come and enjoy time away from your busy life at The Fossil and The Cross.

The Fossil and The Cross, Whispering Pines and Mimosa Cottage and are surrounded by lovely gardens.  Whilst each cottage has a distinct and separte area for their use, these gardens are not enclosed and are on different levels, so children should be supervised.

About the Location

West Bexington is simply a little road with pretty houses either side. The road however leads to a wonderful beach and the village itself is surrounded by lush, green countryside.

There is no real reason to pass through West Bexington, which gives it a tranquil feel. Many fishermen choose to come here to this part of Chesil beach since the fishing is so good here.

The good thing about staying in a holiday cottage in West Bexington is that you will be just a stone’s throw from the beach. It’s a shingle beach, great for walking and soaking up the views, or perhaps doing the summer nature walk, which takes you off the beach, through pretty flower filled meadows and pastures. The South West Coastal path runs straight along Chesil beach so there are plenty of walks to enjoy here.

If a golden sandy beach is your preference then the blue flag, sandy beach at Weymouth is just 13 miles away and a pleasant drive along the coast through picture perfect villages. From sleepy West Bexington, Weymouth will provide a bit more of a buzz, with its beach Punch and Judy shows, donkey rides and chippies on the one part, and the other, the pretty fishing harbour, surrounded by beautiful pastel houses, pubs, restaurants and quaint tearooms.

Abbotsbury is just a 10 minute drive away, offering the wonderful Abbotsbury Swannery, Abbotsbury Sub-Tropical Gardens and the Abbotsbury Children’s Farm. An amble through the village will take you past rows of old stone cottages, beautiful thatched chocolate box dwellings, and a lovely family friendly pub.

For a beachside location but with the countryside views, West Bexington is a great choice for staying in a peaceful holiday cottage with as little or as much to do as you like.
