The Spectacular Jurassic Coast Setting

Our West Bay holiday cottage is located within a scenic and spectacular Jurassic Coast setting. To the delight of guests who like this coastline, it is just a stone’s throw away. And what a great place to start your adventure! The East Beach is a leisurely 8 minutes walk, most of it is along a footpath that was previously a railway line. Once there, you will enjoy the invigorating sea-air and delight in the sounds of the waves lapping at the shoreline. Also, guests who love the ‘Broadchurch’ TV series, will be thrilled to find a number of film scene locations close by.
