It is apparent as soon as you arrive at Heatherbell that this is no ordinary home. Built in the 1920s, and cleverly altered and enlarged under the current ownership, the property is currently run as a successful Bed and Breakfast business but also offers comfortable, sociable and stylish step-free living with the flexibility to accommodate families of all shapes and sizes. There is a degree of duality in the accommodation within which works well to allow to families to live as closely or independently as required, whilst the detached, two storey studio, the timber cabin and the two self contained chalet bedrooms, all with shower room facilities, are a significant asset for those working from home, living with extended family or older children, expecting regular guests or requiring a space outside the main house to practise hobbies.

The accommodation within the main house is spacious with excellent use made of space. The hub of the house is the charming open-plan kitchen/sitting room which lies open to the conservatory, currently arranged as a dining area, creating a large, sociable space perfect for all types of entertaining as well as for family enjoyment. There are four double bedrooms in the main house, three of which benefit from ensuite facilities whilst the fourth could also be used as an additional reception room if desired. Another enormous benefit is the utility room/study which provides a useful space for dealing with the domestic side of life but could easily be re-purposed as a second kitchen/reception room, and there is a mezzanine storage area accessed by a spiral staircase. Reminders of the age of the property and the wonderful boating harbour just a stone's throw away are everywhere with charming features such as wooden floors, high ceilings and a nautical-themed family bathroom.


With sunny, easily maintained gardens and glass doors from all the principal rooms, including all 6 bedrooms and the detached 2 storey studio, opening onto one of two large sun decks, Heatherbell offers a highly desirable indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Owing to the tucked-away position, a sense of seclusion and privacy can be felt, particularly in the rear garden which is the ideal setting for al fresco dining, entertaining and relaxation.


Hill Close is a private cul-de-sac located within easy, level walking distance of West Bay's picturesque harbour, stunning beaches and wonderful cliff top walks.

The charming market town of Bridport is just a short drive away with shopping, leisure and cultural experiences to suit all interests, including a twice weekly street market, and there are schools for children of all ages within the town.
