Heatherbell Cottage enjoys an excellent tucked away position at the end of a small private cul-de-sac, yet within only a few minutes walk of the promenade, beach, harbour and the resort centre. West Bay forms part of the spectacular World Heritage coast, known as the Jurassic Coast, and recently has enjoyed national and global attention due to being the location for the ITV award winning drama 'Broadchurch'. West Bay offers many excellent attractions including a picturesque harbour, bathing beaches, shops and leisure facilities, together with an 18 hole golf course and magnificent coastal and cliff top walks through land owned or controlled by the National Trust. The immediate area is designated as being One of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The thriving and historic town of Bridport is within only about 1.5 miles offering an excellent range of shopping and business facilities, together with twice weekly market and popular leisure centre with swimming pool.

The popular coastal resorts of Lyme Regis and Weymouth are also nearby. Dorchester, is about 15 miles to the east with main line rail services to London Waterloo. The A35 provides excellent road access to the South East, South West and the Midlands.

Heatherbell Cottage is a very attractive detached single storey residence, together with a detached annexe, equally ideal as a private home or with a superb lifestyle bed & breakfast business. The property is believed to one of the oldest properties in West Bay dating back to the 1920's and under the current ownership since 1995 has been subject to very skilful alteration and enlargement with immense flair. It has part stone and brick faced elevations under a concrete tiled roof, together with timber sealed unit windows.

The accommodation is highly individual and versatile with a stunning contemporary/nautical theme. It has been cleverly designed with a separate wing for the bed & breakfast letting rooms and a second kitchen with study/office area.

The many excellent features include:-
* Gas-Fired Central Heating
* Numerous superb character style features including wood panelled ceilings, part wood panelled walls, dado rails, family bathroom with upturned boat-style ceiling, exposed timber floors, spiral staircase, original Millersdale 1950's kitchen, open fireplace and roll top bath.
* Superb newly converted detached annexe, ideal for additional accommodation for family & friends (also potential for letting subject to planning consents)
* Well laid out gardens and terracing
* Summerhouse/Studio with En Suite Shower Room
* Very generous parking with ample space for caravan or boats etc.

Although the property is currently divided for the bed & breakfast letting rooms and owners accommodation, it is inter-connecting and could therefore be easily occupied as one large private home.

A very successful Bed & Breakfast business is being operated. The letting bedrooms are very well appointed with the benefit of their own separate entrance and direct external access onto private terracing. Prices start from £85 per room per night based on 2 people sharing. The rooms are extremely popular with excellent repeat business.

The property can be purchased as a going concern with the benefit of goodwill and future bookings. (The comprehensive fixtures and fittings will be available by separate negotiation).

Heatherbell Cottage is set well back and has a good sized tarmac driveway/parking area, together with a paved front garden, timber decking area and raised beds. The rear garden is level comprising of a good area of lawn, apple tree, large paved terracing and raised timber decking. DETACHED SUMMER HOUSE/STUDIO with EN SUITE SHOWER ROOM. On the south side adjoining the current letting bedrooms there is extensive timber decking which enjoys sea glimpses and views to East Cliff.
