Cottages in Bridport and West Dorset
Famous for its Jurassic coastline and romantic rolling countryside, West Dorset is the hidden gem of the south coast. Whether combing the beaches for fossils, getting out and about in the countryside, enjoying the wealth of fantastic local produce and award winning restaurants, or visiting the picture perfect villages and vibrant market towns, this is the quintessential British holiday location.
Bridport and West Bay are located in the centre of the West Dorset coastline, between Lyme Regis and Weymouth. Made famous in recent years by the TV series ‘Broadchurch’, West Bay is a busy harbour town, with magnificent sandstone cliffs, and three beaches. Enjoy a wood-fired pizza at the Watch House café, right on the beach, indulge in a seafood feast at the Riverside Café, or sit on the harbour wall with fish and chips, or an ice cream and watch the boats come in.
Bridport is one of the UK’s most popular market towns, with a street market on a Wednesday and a Sunday, a busy art and music scene, festivals happening throughout the year, and lots of interesting cafes and restaurants to enjoy.
