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.

What Our Guests Say...

Just spent a long weekend here and must say thoroughly enjoyed it. Stayed in Carter's cottage, lovely and warm and cosy and spotlessly clean. Went with our daughter and one year old grandson. Perfect for families so much there to do - would love to go back in the summer months although weather was kind to us sunny but cold. Very well equipped all you could possibly want with good local pubs.

Sarah, Cardiff

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!

Maryann, Kent

My family has stayed here many times including two visits this year. The cottages are very nice and have everything you need. They are user friendly and you don't feel continuous panic if you have young children there! The grounds and setting are completely stunning. My family and I lay in the garden outside our cottage and listened to the sound of the birds wings whirring through the air as they sped around the buildings. We are talking seriously peaceful!

Craig, London
