The Old Shipyard Centre West Bay Dorset


SITUATION: The property is located on the first floor of the main horse-shoe shaped central development known as The Old Shipyard Centre, considerably sheltered from stormy weather but with uninterrupted views over the sea and coastline and affording the most amazing skyscapes.

West Beach and the sea are just a minutes' walk away and the property lies centrally along the main promenade. West Bay is a coastal village with a high tourist influx and there is a convenience store close by, kiosks and restuarants, beaches, fishing/boating harbour and there are many marine activities catered for, including gig rowing, canoeing, paddle-boarding, para-gliding, wind-surfing, swimming clubs and water polo. There is also a golf club on East Cliff and direct access to the Jurassic Coastline and South West Coastal Paths.

There are walkways, cycle routes and a bus service into the adjoining vibrant town of Bridport which lies some 2 miles to the north. Bridport offers mainly independent shops, a renowned twice-weekly street market, good Art Centre, the Electric Palace theatre/cinema, artists' and vintage quadrant, leisure centre with indoor swimming pool and Bucky Doo Square in the town centre hosts bands, events and festivals all year round.

There are so many opportunities for those who wish to get involved whilst others can simply enjoy the ambience of the town and coast.
