The West Country region
West Milton is located approximately 3 miles north east of the market town of Bridport and 4 miles north of the coast at West Bay. It is a small, quiet hamlet surrounded by beautiful countryside and a network of footpaths for keen walkers. The nearest shops are on the outskirts of Bridport whilst the nearby villages of Nettlecombe and Powerstock (both a mile distant) each have a popular pub serving excellent food.
The county town of Dorchester is approximately 16 miles to the east. The popular seaside resort of Weymouth with its long sandy beach is 18 miles. Stretching west between Weymouth and West Bay is the long sweep of Chesil Beach and the pretty village of Abbotsbury. Between West Bay and Lyme Regis are a number of small coastal villages and beaches, breathtaking clifftops and wooded valleys. Lyme Regis itself is the gateway to the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Bridport is an attractive and thriving market town. It has a Rope Museum celebrating the town’s history of ropemaking, a leisure centre and a wide range of shops including supermarkets. Market days are Wednesdays and Saturdays.
As well as the beautiful natural landscapes popular local attractions include Abbotsbury Swannery, Botanic Gardens and Children’s Farm. West Bay has an attractive working harbour, shingle beach and clifftop walks. Weymouth offers a SeaLife centre, historic Old Harbour and seaside attractions. Dorchester is home to the Dorset Tank Museum, Terracotta Warriors and Teddy Bear Museum.
