The Little Beach House, a quaint beachside chalet in the small and friendly coastal hamlet of West Bexington in West Dorset, won’t fail to delight both couples and small families alike with the world renowned stretch of Chesil Beach right on its doorstep. Guests will fall in love with this charming retreat because its location makes it extra special and it offers a classic Dorset seaside ambiance. The chalet provides an intimate and authentic seaside holiday home and guests will undoubtedly be enthralled with the stunning interrupted sea views enjoyed from the lounge and bedroom. The Little Beach House has just undergone a sympathetic refurbishment to offer cosy and welcoming accommodation, perfect for any time of the year. Lovingly presented and styled, its interiors are neutral but inviting and its large windows and south facing gardens really bring inside the sights, sounds and smells of the sea to be enjoyed from your armchair.
Please note: This property accommodates 3 across 2 bedrooms but due to the size of the lounge and dining areas, the property is better suited to a maximum of 2 adults.
West Bexington is one of Dorset’s best kept secrets and boasts a well renowned hotel with restaurant and bar with garden and outdoor seating. The 18 mile long stretch of pebble Chesil beach which runs from Portland to West Bay is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers dramatic scenery which is complimented with a wide range of flora and fauna, bird watching as well as unsurpassed walking along the South West Coastal Path and it also very popular for fishing. For those who can tear themselves away, the location is most convenient as a base for exploring Dorset’s coast and countryside. The famed village of Abbotsbury with its swannery is a short drive or pleasant 40 minute walk away as is Burton Bradstock which offers a family friendly beach as well as the very popular Hive Beach Cafe. Slightly further afield is the famed market town of Bridport with its harbour at West Bay, famous as the setting of the television series of Broadchurch. Other popular destinations such as Weymouth and Lyme Regis can be accessed by car.

All additional comments were made in the guest book at the property
Very pleased with all aspects and the total experience of staying there will be with us in memory forever.
Yes we did
The property and surrounding area does not have mobile coverage which to some people could be a problem.
We'll be back, if you'll let us ????
Thoroughly enjoyed it. Could have been more sunny but that is not the fault of Toad Hall Cottages.
Best place we have ever stayed at. A proper home from home
It was lovely and location fantastic
House beautifully presented and the location - seconds' walk from the beach - fantastic. Wonderful views of sunsets and starry skies. As it snowed when I was there I particularly appreciated the efficient heating.
Simply the best location I have ever stayed in and perfect for celebrating my retirement. We would love to have visited it next summer but it is fully booked. If you have any cancellations please could you let us know. Many thanks
This was an idyllic holiday - amazing setting blissfully quiet with beautiful views.
Absolutely wonderful! Ands we have already booked for next year ????
Nice homely touches much appreciated
Nice homely touches
A perfect spot for sundowners!
This is a delightful little beach hut, and although we couldn't stay long due to illness, loved the location and the special touches.. flowers/ sponge cake/ eggs. So welcoming
Best holiday ever and we will be back
The wonderful little touches given by the owner were the best we have experienced. Homemade cake, jams and fresh eggs and milk were gratefully received. The Beach House was impeccably stocked with everyday items and not so everyday including fishing tackle, doggy bags and even a lead! The thoughtfulness of even supplying scarves and gloves for when the weather turned cooler, and fresh flowers which I am sure were from their garden. I would highly recommend this little gem and would definitely come again. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely book through Toad Hall cottages again and recommend the company.
Welcome pack was exceptional
Perfect location, and made to feel welcome because the owner had left us milk , eggs and homemade Victoria sponge cake , and some roses in the rooms ( it’s those little things that make the difference).
We had a wonderful week in this surprisingly spacious chalet. A excellent, generous ‘welcome’ was provided by the owner with a lovely homemade cake, eggs, milk, homemade honey, jam and marmalade. With such a generous ‘welcome’ I think It would be worth letting visitors know in advance that this is provided.
This is a lovely place to stay and the owners have thought of everything, plus some additional unexpected treats! The location is so unique, with your own access to the beach, and an ideal village with both a traditional pub type restaurant and a more upmarket one within a short walk. Can't recommend highly enough.
Thoroughly enjoyed our week. Chalet was warm and cosy and very well equipped with thoughtful extras.
Had a great stay and some very nice welcoming surprises. Beautiful view very clean and would go again
We had a fantastic say at The Little Beach House - it was so comfortable, every detail had been thought of and such a warm welcome (home made cake & jams, eggs, milk, handwritten card) - everything was in good condition and worked well. The location is unbeatable. We would love to stay there again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
We very much enjoyed our stay, it was the little extras that made us feel welcome. The card from Judy together with a gorgeous Victoria sponge, eggs & jams. The location is simply amazing, accommodation cosy/very well equipped. We will be back!
Fabulous place. Lovely quality beds and linen. Nice welcome tray and homemade cake. We can’t recommend this place enough. Couple of minor points, Water tastes revolting. It’s very hard. I’d take bottled water. We had to de scale the kettle, lime scale bits were floating in our drinks. Poor internet connection. ( to be expected there) This cottage is well equipped with everything you need for a fabulous break. Breath taking views, lovely walks and close to major towns for your shopping etc.
We are delighted you had a fabulous time in this amazing location. The owner is very attentive to ideas and suggestions and rest assured she will try to improve the drinking water in some way. We hope you will return again Thank you

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and really appreciated the extras that Judy supplied like the cake, marmalade, honey, eggs etc and leaving knitting for people to do, and fishing equipment. Could not have asked for more. Excellent.
We were made very welcome by extra touches although we did not meet the owner.
We have been here 3 times and have booked again for next year, says it all I think.
Lovely property, in a beautiful location. The many little extras provided by the owner make this a very special place to stay.
The beach hut was perfect. Everything was provided. Never stayed in a self catering place before that had so many "extra's". Even had a gorgeous sponge on arrival, plus a little nest of eggs and honey & jam. Not forgetting the milk in the fridge as well. Wonderful, thoughtful owner. Lovely quiet place on private road practically on the beach. All we saw was rabbits, birds, hikers and fishermen. No noisy people or cars, and the people staying in the huts were very friendly. No street lights, no shop, only 2 restaurants. We only had 3 days of sun, but that didnt matter because it was so peaceful, a real good place to unwind. Only downfall was, the fish were not biting, so we never got our fish suppers, oh well, cant have everything! The owner of this beach hut provided everything that was needed and more. She literally thought of everything, even down to games, books, knitting etc. Amazing.

The welcome of cake, milk, homemade honey, jam and marmalade and 2 delicious eggs was a lovely touch.
We love this property. This was our second stay at The Little Beach House, the house itself, the surroundings etc are all excellent. We were hoping to come back again later in the summer but it's all booked up! A sure sign of what a great place this is.
This is a unique little property and a wonderful spot where you can witness the sea in all its moods close up. Judy has a great job in equipping the very neat beach house with absolutely everything you could need. Well worth a visit.
Battery in smoke alarm had been removed, could do with a blind for bathroom window, otherwise very pleasant place to stay.
Thank you very much for your comments, we will get these issues resolved but we are pleased that you had a very pleasant stay.

Second time in this cottage - and hopefully won't be the last. Love it here.
A lovely place, really comfy and we'll appointed. We will certainly return!
Little beach house small but the effort that Has been put into this little place was excellent, from pint milk to eggs, home made cake, jams, fresh flowers. Quality bedding. We have stayed at many cottages but the Owner made you feel so welcome with all the effort she had gone to will certainly return.
The lady who owns the cottage as really lovely touches. She leaves a home made cake and there was a pint of milk in the fridge. Just what you want after a long journey
Little bit of paradise on beautiful Dorset coast
Would definitely use Toad Hall Cottages again and recommend them to others, we had a great holiday in a lovely, well-appointed property.
stayed at the little beach house for a week with my daughter and sister and Ted the dog.... the weather was fantastic as was the location ... the view from our window was priceless.... and location was just perfect. the little beach house is little..but big on impact has everything you need for a week self catering and the owner even left us cupcakes and milk in the fridge for a well earned cuppa on arival all in all a wonderful place to unwind and reax and take in the lovely views of the sea...one not to be missed ..
Fabulous location directly on Chesil Beach.Great outdoor space front and back. Spotlessly clean and cosy, arrived to find fresh milk and a yummy cake waiting for us. Everything you need and more is provided. Fishing rods if you fancy it, knitting (yes balls of wool and needles) Adult colouring (yes book and pencils provided) books and games. For the dog there's a bowl, towels, poo bags and lead!!! Lovely location to explore surrounding area. Will be looking to return next year.
Little Beach House is a real gem of a place to stay - the owner is very clearly people and dog friendly, with all the thoughtful extras from cakes to dog water bowl by the front door. We can't wait to return.
The Little Beach House was everything we wanted for a week away. The little touches by the owner made a good impression.
I had the most glorious week at the Little Beach House. I have just recommended it to a friend. I will definitely be back. It was a fantastic location, had everything that you would need for a relaxing week away and a lovely owner who text to see if I was okay during a storm. I love this place xx
