    About this property

    The Skilling has superb views of the countryside and towards the sea and is located in the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
    The Skilling is an upside down detached house with the living room, kitchen and dining room on the first floor and certainly for a good reason. It is in an ideal location with amazing views over the unesco Jurassic World Heritage Coastline with sea and countryside views. It is within walking distance of the centre of Bridport and a perfect spot for countryside and beach walks too. Ideally located for exploring the unesco World Heritage Jurassic Coastline and in particular Chesil Beach, Burton Bradstock, West Bay (setting of BBC’s ’Broadchurch’), Bridport, Weymouth, Portland, Charmouth and Lyme Regis.
    The county town of Dorchester and Thomas Hardy country is just 16 miles away. Golden Cap is well worth a visit and is the highest cliff in southern England. The ‘Jurassic Drive’ coast road is on your doorstep, which is one of the strikingly scenic coastal drives in the whole of the UK at 18 miles in length. The Jurassic Coast road starts in Weymouth and ends in Bridport or vice versa, following the coast, Chesil Beach and the fleet lagoon. There are certainly some amazing high-vantage points of both the coastline and the countryside. It’s the best part of the 96 mile Jurassic Coastline. If you wish to leave the car behind take the local Jurassic Coast bus, which starts/ends in Poole and Exeter and which visits some great places inbetween for exploring all of the Dorset coastline and picturesque chocolate box villages such as Abbotsbury and Burton Bradstock. Westbay harbour is less than a mile from The Skilling offering local fishing and a great place to soak up the atmosphere whilst enjoying the local fish and chips. Ideal for families/groups. Beach 1 mile. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
