Ideal retreat.
What a lovely location. Overlooking the bay the cottage has an elevated view over the coast. Quiet, peaceful, a nice place to sit and chill. Though we toured the coastal villages and towns it's nice to return to peace and quiet. The owners are very helpful and friendly. Nice to stop for a chat. You can spend your time watching the wildlife visiting the garden. Some stunning scenery. Either coastal views or inland. Pretty villages, friendly people.

What a great find!
This is a terrific property tucked away in its own extensive grounds/garden.West Bexington village centre is a 5 minute walk away,here is The Manor pub /restaurant serving good food at sensible prices,plus real ales and a great draught cider! A further 5 minute walk from here will take you down to the shingle beach with beach bar and restaurant.The beach really isnt that good for swimmiing as there is often a lot of beach fishing going on and the beach shelves quite steeply into the sea.Back to the cottage itself,it was spotlessly clean and well equipped.There is however no shop in West Bexington,the nearest convenience store is a a couple of miles away in Burton Bradstock.The nearest supermarket is a further couple of miles along the coast in Bridport.
