SITUATION:  No 4, Elizabeth Avenue occupies an elevated good-sized plot less than half-way up a slope on the south-western edge of Bridport, with a shortcut across the meadows into the town and close to footpaths to the coast at West Bay. The leisure centre with indoor swimming pool is close-by and the town centre lies approximately half-a-mile away with its comprehensive shopping facilities comprising mainly independent and very individual shops, boosted by a twice-weekly street market, fortnightly farmers' market, vintage and food markets as well as art and craft market and studios.

The area abounds with scenic walks and a community offering many musical, choral, dance and sports groups together with a well supported U3A group.  There is a popular art centre and community theatre at the Electric Palace, museum and history groups, tennis club and indoor and outdoor bowls clubs, football and golf clubs.  

The coastal village of West Bay just 1.5 miles to the south is famed for the Broadchurch TV series and has beaches, a fishing harbour and many outdoor pursuits are catered for such as boating, fishing, gig-rowing and water polo.  West Bay is also a gateway to the Jurassic Coastline with its World Heritage Status.

Dorchester, the County Town, lies some 14 miles to the east with its British Rail main line connection to London, Waterloo, and connecting hourly bus services from Bridport.
