Bridport: A Market Town With Character Holiday Homes

A former fishing town, Bridport, has now evolved as a rather nice market town in the west of Dorset and has much to appeal to the visitor. It is a good base for a holiday home from which to explore the West Dorset Heritage Coast as well as some delightfully quaint inland villages. The port is now no longer in use, the sea having long since retreated (you'll find it a few miles down the road in West Bay). The town nestles amidst ravishingly beautiful hills and rolling green countryside. Visit its bustling local market held every Wednesday and Saturday throughout the town streets.

For culture lovers, the Bridport Arts Centre in a large converted chapel offers a range of live events and exhibitions all year round. The chapel is one of many architecturally impressive buildings that add to the charming character of the town centre together with its many small independent shops many of them selling local organic produce. For the visitor, there are many holiday homes surrounding the town, perfect for either a holiday base for day trips or a peaceful bolthole.

There’s a real sense of community surrounding this small old Dorset town. There’s an intriguing museum in the town centre recalling the town’s colourful history from its Roman origins, while the Palmer’s Brewery offers tours and opportunities to sample local ales.

As a town there is a strong passion for food. A food festival is held there annually and the town itself was used as a base to film Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's Channel 4 television programme River Cottage.

It’s a five-minute drive to the sea at West Bay, which has a traditional harbour and spectacularly golden sands stretching out in a picturesque curve around the stunningly blue still water. It is part of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast which hosts incredible rock and cliff formations that truly take your breath away. It is renowned for its food with exceptional fresh fish and crab, and the West Bay cliffs are certainly not short of restaurants providing this awesome array of local food. A nest of treasures and wonders for all the family lies within Bridport and is certainly worth a visit.
