Power boating and watersports along the jurassic coast or scenic golf on the cliff tops


Water Activities

With the incredible Dorset coast on your doorstep you are never far away from an exciting water activity. If you fancy catching your lunch you can go on a sea fishing trip from West Bay and hope to catch a mackerel or something bigger!

For the more adventurous a thrill seeking power boat ride along the Jurassic Coast. These full throttle, high speed experiences in a RIB speed boat will surely excite the kids but for those of you who like a more sedate pace there are more gentle coastal cruises.

At nearby Portland is the National Sailing Academy as well as the Andrew Simpson Watercentre. The full range of watersports are on offer including windsurfing, sailing, powerboating, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding. As well as catering for the experience there are many taster and beginner sessions available.


West Dorset has some of the most picturesque and challenging golf courses of the country. The nearby Bridport Golf club offers links golf at its best where you will play along the jurassic cliff tops with stunning views along the coast. The signature 6th hole is only 133 yards long but has a drop of over 90 feet and has been rated as one of the top 100 holes in the world. Further afield there are excellent golf courses at Lyme Regis and Weymouth. For those who are not regular golfers there is a pitch & putt at Bridport and Weymouth as well as crazy golf course overlooking Lyme Bay.

We stayed in 'Pigsty Cottage'. So beautiful, we had our own little veranda & stunning views overlooking the lakes & surrounding countryside. A short drive to Chesil Beach. The cottage is well equipped & comfortable. A jug of milk & a selection of tea & coffee was a lovely welcome!

Great family fun - We had a great family trip with 14 of us sharing three adjacent cottages to celebrate a family birthday. Whilst we were only there for two nights, the facilities on site were great and kept the three children entertained and busy.

Great location to explore West Dorset - We had a really lovely stay at Rudge Farm. As our first visit to West Dorset it was an ideal location to explore the coastline. The kids really enjoyed the activities on site too including the boating on the lake, the games room and tennis court. The local farm shop was fab and did lovely fresh bread, yummy cheese, and veg. Thanks for a great holiday and we would definitely recommend it to other people.
