Welcome to the Gables Bed and Breakfast in Bridport, West Dorset
Our Edwardian bed and breakfast accommodation is half a mile from Bridport town centre. We have two en suite double rooms and a double / twin room with private facilities (not ensuite). Bridport is just inland from the Jurassic coast between Lyme Regis and Weymouth and is ideally placed for a holiday in West Dorset.
Gables was built in 1907 by William Saunders Edwards. He was the principal of William Edwards & Son, who specialised in
sports nets. They still manufacture the nets for Wimbledon. He was also the Mayor of Bridport 1907-1909 and again in
1917-18, so the house was built to reflect the achievement of a very
successful man both in business and politics.
We have plenty of
off road parking and the centre of Bridport is a 10 minute stroll so there
is no need to take your car out in the evening. There are no televisions in the bedrooms or guests' sitting room but there is plenty of reading material including
magazines and books all about Dorset and the local area. We offer wire free internet access to your laptop.
Bridport Harbour, now known as West Bay is less than two miles away. It has all the charm of a British seaside resort and has spectacular views from the West pier of Lyme Bay and the Jurassic Coast.
Poole to Exeter coastal route bus stop, footpath to coast and
Allington Hill with its panoramic views of Bridport, West Bay and Marshwood
Vale are all only yards away.
For regular guests, please note that the family Everitt/Thomas has taken over The Gables B & B from Don and Wendy Broadley. We aim to live up to their very excellent standards and look forward to welcoming you back to Bridport.
