Full description

A superior and recently updated seaside apartment on the second floor affording attractive countryside and cliff views, quietly located close to the centre of the popular coastal resort of West Bay. Ideal holiday retreat or for holiday letting.

SITUATION:  Maritime House adjoins the West Bay car park at the entrance to West Bay within an easy level walk of the beach, harbour and local facilities.  West Bay is a small coastal resort and fishing village which is famed for its scenic cliff walks and is the gateway to the Jurassic Coastline which now has World Heritage Status.  Many fishing, boating and water sports are catered and there is a golf course on East Cliff. There are buses and a walk way into Bridport town centre some 2 miles to the north.

The market town of Bridport offers comprehensive shopping facilities with a twice-weekly street market together with regular vintage, arts and crafts and farmers' markets, wealth of clubs and opportunities including a leisure centre with indoor swimming pool and community theatres.  There are also connecting buses to Dorchester, the County Town, some 17 miles to the east with its main line rail services to London Waterloo.
