Pier Terrace occupies a stunning coastal position in the heart of West Bay, adjoining the harbour and beach. West Bay (the location for the TV drama Broadchurch) is a thriving coastal resort with excellent amenities including public houses, convenience store, fishmongers, cafes, restaurant and church, all arranged around the picturesque historic working harbour. The coastline, known as the Jurassic Coast, is designated as a World Heritage Site and there is an 18 hole golf course nearby.
The historic market town of Bridport is only 1.5 miles away with more comprehensive facilities. The larger centres of Dorchester and Weymouth, are both within about half an hour's driving distance with main line rail services to London and the West Country.
Bridport was named as one of 'The Best Places To Live' in the UK by The Sunday Times in 2018.
