Mimosa is a spacious comfortable cottage in the same garden as the Fossil and the Cross and Whispering Pines. Everything is on one level. It is double-glazed, insulated and tiled with under floor heating, thermostatically controlled throughout with an open fire in the sitting room.

The conservatory is an extension of the sitting room and the two bedrooms. Views from the sitting room are over the sea to the south, and there is a separate stone summer house with views to the west over Golden Cap. Some of the patio surrounding the house is fenced and quite private.

Everything is suitable for wheelchair users, including a height adjustable 4-ring hob and sink, lever taps, etc. Of the two bathrooms, one is en-suite to both bedrooms and has a drive-in shower with a strong folding seat and a shower chair; and the other bathroom has a sitting board and a low washing seat for the bath. Both toilets are high; one has wheelchair access from the left, the other from the right.

The conservatory has a Jaybee sofa- bed, which opens easily to become a double bed. There are four futons which, all piled together make a footrest or can be used as children's mattresses on the floor. The three piece suite stands fairly high. All the furniture can be moved easily. All decorating was with allergen-free, non-solvent paint, there is a chlorine water filter and the oil boiler is outside; therefore, asthmatics, ME sufferers and chemically-sensitive people may be OK here. There is no extra charge for heating.


Granary Lodge


The granary takes its name from the 300 year old granary it sits next to and is a beautiful 3 bedroom cottage. The property is walled all the way round for total privacy and ample parking. The conservatory opens up to wooden decking where you can enjoy breathtaking views of the paddocks, woodland, open farmland and the sea.

There are three bedrooms, with a kingsize bed (5ft) in the master bed- room, a double bunk bed (4ft lower and 3ft upper) in the red bedroom, and twin beds in the green bedroom. With a double sofa-bed in the sitting room and a z-bed there is flexibility to sleep more.

The lounge, dining room and conservatory are inter-connected, covering a total area of over 600 square feet. The bathroom is a shared family/en-suite, with toilet, bath and wet-room and is fully accessible. The kitchen is fully equipped, including a dish washer. It is furnished with a small breakfast table, providing a dining alternative for small groups.

Granary Lodge provides ideal holiday accommodation for a large family or sharing families and friends. It is all on one level, including the front terrace and back decking areas, which substantially increase the living/dining possibilities when the weather allows. The continuous, level living space makes it suitable for the elderly, wheel-chair users or other anyone with mobility difficulties. The front door has a concrete ramp, and the side and back doors have removable ramps. A heated swim spa pool, in a adjacent building with second toilet and shower, is available at £65/week.

West Bexington is a small coastal village between Burton Bradstock and Abbotsbury, thirteen miles west of Dorchester and Weymouth and six miles south east of Bridport and West Bay. The village is on a hill that slopes down to the unspoilt Chesil Beach. On a clear day views extend from Portland Bill in the east, around Lyme Bay including Golden Cap (the highest cliff in the south of England), past the red cliffs of Devon, across to Dartmoor and right round to Start Point in the west.

Fishing


Chesil Beach is an excellent and well known fishing beach. Mackerel are caught in the summer. Autumn is the richest time with bass, cod and plaice often being caught. Dabs, flounders, pouting, bream, whiting, dogfish, skate, gurnard, monkfish and sprats may also be caught.


Bird Watching


The whole area is renowned for the number of birds, both resident and migratory. Several years ago, the Head of English Heritage was staying in one of the cottages and he said that he had never seen so many species of birds in one garden anywhere else!


Sightseeing


West Bexington is a convenient centre for trips westward to Burton Bradstock, Bridport, Charmouth, Lyme Regis and the Devon coast; and eastwards to Abbotsbury with its Swannery and subtropical gardens, Weymouth, Portland, Lulworth Cove and Purbeck. Inland we have many prehistoric remains, famous hill forts such as Eggardon and Maiden Castle and Roman remains in Dorchester.

There are several excellent local museums and other specialist museums such as Bovington Tank Museum, and the Tutankhamen and the Dinosaur Museums in Dorchester. There are several stately homes in the area, as well as a monkey sanctuary and a butterfly farm.
