Why Visit West Dorset in Winter?
From May to October both Bridport and West Bay are a hive of activity with families and couples flocking to the area to spend time on the beautiful Jurassic Coast. So why would you want to visit during the winter months? There is nothing quite like walking along the beach watching a beautiful sunset with hardly another person in sight. The roads are quiet so getting around is easy . There is still the famous Bridport Market to visit and the lovely little shops in Bridport and West Bay many having winter sales. The pubs are warm and cosy serving some great food . There is still plenty of entertainment to be had. Many of the pubs have live music and there is always a full programme at the Bridport Arts Centre and Electric Palace. The weather may not always be perfect but wrapping up and taking to the coastal path on a bright, crisp day is exhilarating. There’s nothing better than a cold, clear winter day to explore the coast and countryside, recharge the batteries and blow away the cobwebs. This is the perfect time to get your camera out and keep an eye out for the wildlife, such as robins, deer, herons and owls. Accommodation prices also tend to be cheaper. At Bredy House we can offer special deals on longer stay at this time of year. So why not come and visit us?
