Harbour Lights, an impressive modern and spacious house, was created to maximise the impressive south facing views over West Bay and Lyme Bay. Set to the backdrop of the spectacular Jurassic Coastline and finished to the highest standard with a quality feel throughout, this is the ideal base from which to explore the magic of the area and to enjoy an unforgettable holiday by the sea. The house, with its Corian work surfaces, marble and wooden floors exudes a contemporary but stylish appeal that will please all guests. The town centre is an easy walk away and there you will find a good selection of cafes, restaurants and pubs. The Electric Palace Cinema and Bridport Arts Centre are worthy of checking for great entertainment, as is the twice weekly street markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays.The beach at West Bay is only seven minutes walk along the former railway line that is adjacent to Harbour Lights.
West Bay, famous as the setting of the television series Broadchurch, is reachable by foot via the local footpath or a short car journey. Other popular destinations such as Weymouth or Lyme Regis can be accessed easily by car. This location is a perfect base from which to explore Dorset's coast and countryside. The famous swannery and botanical gardens in the village of Abbotsbury is a short drive away. Nearby Burton Bradstock has a beach as well as the very popular Hive Beach Cafe which is set on the impressive eighteen mile long stretch of Chesil beach, which runs from Portland to West Bay. Slightly further afield is the popular seaside town of Charmouth where you will find the Jurassic Heritage Centre. There is easy access to the South West Coast Path which runs along this stretch of stunning coastline and the region offers opportunities for fossil hunting, walking, fishing and many other activities.

The property was really lovely, being superbly equipped, spacious and clean and as a large party suited us perfectly. Great views from the house to West Bay and an excellent location with the path nearby meaning you can be on the seafront in 20 mins. The only minor quibbles we had were that the induction hob was not easy to use and a bit temperemental (I could only get a maximum of 2 hobs to works at one time) and one of the toilet seats was loose. Otherwise all very positive.
Very nice property in great location. Easy walkable access (~15-20 minutes) to both West Bay and Bridport. Fantastic views from all bedrooms. Lots of parking space, a great base for exploring the surrounding areas: Weymouth, Lyme Regis, etc. Had a very nice family holiday here.
We had a wonderful stay at Harbour Lights in May. We had not been to this area before but found it to be in a really good location for accessibility to West bay and the surrounding area (mins to Lyme Regis, 35 mins to Weymouth and 15 mins to the lovely village of Abbotsbury). Although it’s not directly on the coast it is a rather nice 15 walk down a newly tarmac path, with a great playground on the way (perfect for kids of all ages) and you arrive in west bay. The highlight in west bay was the fresh fish shop with delicious seafood, especially the oysters! The house itself was faultless. A well equipped kitchen and modern fittings. 5 bedrooms and plenty of toilet/bathrooms. The house is double glazed so we barely noticed any road noise and the sea views from every room were gorgeous! The only issue we had was the induction hob blew up one evening when we were cooking. I rang the owner who organised an electrician to come first thing in the morning (8.30am) and a new hob was fitted and working within 2 hours!! Very impressed. My parents already want to book again for next year!
Enjoyed our stay. Bit surprised at standard of furnishings. Need more large saucepans for 10 guests
A super holiday home which was well equipped and close to good local amenities. One (very) minor issue was a lack of bin bags in the kitchen.
This house is beautiful, with a short walk down the footpath to West Bay, pubs, fish and chips and bakery. The house is so light and spacious it is a pleasure to spend time in. The location half way between Lyme Regis and Weymouth also enables easy visits to both. All in all one of our best holidays for our large family group.
Yes we had a lovely stay and really enjoyed spending time in the area and the beautiful house just what we had hoped for.
Fantastic house, very comfortable and well equipped. Wonderful view and location. Would definitely stay here again.
Place was well located and well equipped. Didn’t like main large gates having to be left open especially as the road outside was very busy.
Thank you for the 4 star rating and feedback. The property is in a superb location, being an easy walk to town and West Bay. The big gates are normally left open to give guests the added convenience of driving in and out with ease, which we feel is more beneficial.
