Situation And Amenities - Brit Bank is situated on the riverside adjacent to the harbour in the popular former fishing village of West Bay at the heart of the World Heritage Site Jurassic Coast. West Bay itself is a beautiful village that retains a working harbour and is very much an unspoilt gem of the South Coast. The village has a range of shops including a convenience store, general store and a well renowned fishmonger. There are a number of cafes and restaurants including the artisan Sladers Yard and the award winning Riverside Restaurant. West Bay has two beaches, perfect for bathing or mackerel fishing, a harbour and a launch ramp for smaller vessels. The coast is dotted with excellent coastal walks and bridleways that take in the glorious views. Approximately a mile to the north is the vibrant market town of Bridport which has been described by many as Notting Hill on Sea. It has been made famous by celebrity endorsements from Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall, who features the area regularly in his River Cottage programmes, and Martin Clunes with his popular Buckham Fair. Bridport has a twice weekly market as well as regular farmers' markets and offers a range of shops and services including restaurants, a cinema and leisure centre, supermarkets, museum and a number of primary schools and secondary schooling.

Description - Brit Bank is a delightful riverside bungalow situated in a waterside position, close to the harbour but beautifully tucked away. The property is a detached timber bungalow presented in excellent order. Brit Bank offers a good sized sitting room with wooden flooring throughout and with French doors opening onto the riverside and a seating area to the right. A well-appointed kitchen that leads to a utility area with space for a washing machine and storage which then leads into a good sized modern bathroom with shower over bath. There are two double bedrooms with the master bedroom benefitting from views across the river outside. Brit Bank is a very special property as it was featured heavily in the popular coastal drama Broadchurch in series 2 of the show. Through this fame many tourists come to the area of West Bay and love to see where all the action took place.

Outside - Brit Bank is approached via a pedestrian bridge over the harbour to the riverside tucked behind the very popular Riverside restaurant in West Bay. A path leads to four chalets in this quiet location with Brit Bank being the third one along. There is room for a seating area on the river side and you have your own access to the river via a mooring and room to keep a small boat if you desire. To the far side of the property there is a good sized storage shed to keep any bits of bobs you may need or sports equipment for playing on the river or out to sea.
