About this property

Settled paces away from the coast in the charming village of West Bay, Dorset is Corner Cove. This dog-friendly, ground-floor apartment benefits from a fabulous location close to the golden shores of West Bay Beach, local amenities and is settled in the picturesque Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; an idyllic setting for couples looking to explore the wonders of Dorset with two of their beloved canine companions. Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home where you can unwind on the plush sofa in front of the TV while your partner pampers you with a delicious meal prepared in the fully-equipped kitchen. Dine together at the intimate table before stepping outside to the front patio to savour the last of the evening outside with a glass of wine in hand. When the evening ends, head back inside to wash off the day’s adventures in the shower room before sloping off to sleep in the sumptuous double bedroom. During the day, head out to stock up on all of your self-catering essentials or enjoy date night at one of the restaurants or bars in West Bay. Maybe book a table at the renowned Station Kitchen. Take a short walk down to the shore where you can while away sunny days on West Bay Beach which also offers spectacular views across the English Channel. Tour the discovery centre also found here or rent a boat to explore the open water and admire the rugged Jurassic coast from a unique perspective! Follow the coast to the iconic Lyme Regis where you can immerse yourself in the area’s history with a stroll along Lyme Regis Fossil Beach where millions of years of evolution lie under your feet, tour Dinosaurland Fossil Museum and Lyme Regis Museum. Alternatively, head in the opposite direction to explore the extensive and iconic Chesil Beach, take to Weymouth Bay with exciting water sports like kayaking, canoeing or paddle boarding or explore Nothe Fort which boasts an unbeatable waterside location. All this and more awaits at Corner Cove!

West Bay, made famous by the TV show Broadchurch, is located at the end of the dramatic pebbly Chesil Beach, just west of the glorious sandstone cliffs of Golden Cap. It's a beautiful seaside spot, ideal for family vacations, with plenty of opportunities to go fishing, crabbing, boating, and golfing, and lovely walks along the South West Coast Path. Check out Thomas Hardy's and TE Lawrence's residences, the Tank Museum in Bovington, and the Naval Air Museum in Yeovil. Bridport, the lively market town featured in River Cottage, is only 1.5 miles away. There are many places of interest in the neighbourhood that the whole family can enjoy. Charmouth, a popular spot for fossil hunters, Lyme Regis, a charming seaside town, and the River Cottage headquarters, located not far from Axminster, are all within easy driving distance to the West. You can find the golden sands of Weymouth to the east, as well as the beautiful Sub-tropical Gardens and Swannery at Abbotsbury. This spectacular setting is perfect for a relaxing getaway with the whole family.

    On arrival found parking space which is convenient to the property but not allocated so could be hit and miss at busier times. Kitchen was well equipped however we ate out and didn't cook. Nice touch with the welcome pack. Living room was cosy with TV and once heating sorted was good. For the shower a degree was needed in its operation, shower in our experience was very temperamental and despite having several settings only 1 would work when the pump eventually kicks in. The bedroom had plenty of storage area, bed comfy enough but is a small double and just not what we were used to, the blind in the bedroom could do with being changed to a black out blind due to the automatic light outside, made the bedroom very bright all night until we hung coats on the curtain pole. If you go to Corner Cove without great expectations then you will be ok

    Also the guide to the property needs to say turn third left then drive between the garages for parking and property, it was raining heavily when we arrived and didn’t spot the gap between the garages, so had to phone up. Very handy to visit Weymouth, Lyme Regis.

    Having finally located the address among the run down car park and shabby rows of lock up garages the property did nothing to lift this gloomy setting. This property was so run down, tired and grubby that we decided not to stay and made the long drive home again an hour after our arrival. The mattress on the bed was so worn that you could actually feel the springs coming through. A basic requirement of any accommodation, regardless of its star rating, is a bed you can actually get a good nights sleep on. This property needs a serious update, deep clean and a bit of investment to replace the worn out furnishings. The property owner refused any compensation for our abandoned holiday and refused to acknowledge the dismal and unacceptable standard of the property. Avoid this place at all cost.
