Where you’ll be

Nr. Bridport, Dorset, United Kingdom

Short House is in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' on the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, 3/4 of a mile east of the village of West Bexington. The peace and solitude of such a stunning location and the sound of the waves on Chesil Beach make it a very special place. There are spectacular views over Lyme Bay, the Dorset and Devon coastline. Lots of things to do in this excellent holiday location.

Short House is in an area of very low ambient light; on clear nights it is a great location for stargazing.
