Whether rambling, hiking or wildlife watching, The Seaside Boarding House in Burton Bradstock offers a tranquil haven for those looking to get outside for a liberating lungful of sea air, before returning to the effortless charm of this restaurant and bar with rooms. Standing proudly on the clifftop, overlooking a panoramic view of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, this elegant escape welcomes sandy feet, windswept dogs and ravenous ramblers who are staying overnight or simply stopping for a moment of refined respite.
With many a well-trodden walking route running by the door, ranging from 12-mile stomps from Seatown to Abbotsbury to two-mile ambles along Hive Beach, this idyllic seaside spot is perfectly positioned for anyone keen to explore the shores. A fine restaurant and terrace await for those who have worked up an appetite in the open air, serving up a daily changing menu that uses the surrounding land and sea as its larder, alongside an uncluttered wine list and selection of sundowners, cocktails and night caps in the bar.
Located just a pebble’s throw away from the meandering majesty of the South West Coast Path, The Seaside Boarding House sits in an area awash with wildlife, from the resident adder that lives in the garden wall to the family of seals that pop their heads up from time to time. As the sun makes its descent, eight bedrooms provide the most warming of welcomes for weary legs, including a super king-size bed with Devon-made natural mattresses, feather pillows and an indulgently deep claw-foot bath, ready to soak the day away.
