Situated on Chesil Beach along the coastal path in an area designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, perfect for a family holiday.

Beach location

Greenbanks is the last house along the coastal path, between Abbotsbury and West Bexington, and this detached holiday property is situated on Chesil Beach and has wonderful, uninterrupted views of the sea and sky. The house has been completely refurbished, having been a much-loved second home for fifty years. It retains many of its original features including an open fire, whilst offering spacious and comfortable accommodation. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. Although its location is very private (access is down a narrow, sometimes bumpy track), it is only a 20-minute walk along the coastal path to West Bexington for the nearest pub serving food. A 15-20 minute walk towards Abbotsbury will take you to the sub-tropical gardens, whilst the local shops are 2½ miles away in Abbotsbury. Bridport, Dorchester and Weymouth are each about 10 miles away. The area is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, on account of the local flora and fauna. The walks, views and sunsets are fantastic. Shops 2½ miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    We throughly enjoyed our Christmas stay at Greenbanks. The cottage was more then we expected, it's well equipped, clean, good location, but more importantly it feels like a home. We will be booking again this year!

    Lovely, fully equipped house with outstanding views. Enjoyed our family holiday and would like to return. However, the prices for next year seem to have increased drastically which will now make it difficult for us to justify the cost.

    Our third stay here. Just a perfect location and lovely property for a large family. Well equipped and well maintained throughout. We will come again.

    Response on behalf of the owner: Thank you for your kind message. So glad you had a good holiday. We love the place too. Its very special and we thank our great uncle for buying it back in the 1950's.

    This is a very special place to stay, a lovely location, spectacular sunsets. The cottage is fully equipped with just about everything you need. The main issue is that it is very difficult to get down to the beach and Chesil Beach is very popular with anglers, some park on the coast path directly outside the cottage.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: Thank you for your message. I'm sorry you had difficulty getting down to the beach. Before the storms a few years ago we had steps directly opposite the house. Unfortunately these were eroded away and it is something we are thinking of replacing. The nearest place is just to the left of the driveway, a small jump down. The cars are a terrible nuisance, but we do love to see them get stuck.

    Great place. Great position. Maybe wouldn't suit all, due to its remote location. But for us this was a major asset. Never found any way to recycle food waste though? We'll be back!
