The Property

Set within the attractive village of Abbotsbury, 32 West Street offers well-proportioned accommodation within a characterful thatched property in the heart of the village.


Located just nine miles from Weymouth, Dorchester and Bridport, this traditional village is within easy reach of three main conurbations on the south coast. Also benefitting from being located on the B3157, the coast road brings a significant amount of passing trade. Due to the already bustling commercial centre in the village coupled with the numerous tourist attractions in the village, the footfall through the village is vast and has the potential to boost any business significantly.
