Exquisitely nestled in the historic Dorset village of Eype, which is dramatically set on the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, The Wave is a modern, architect-designed lodge that showcases the surrounding sea views to breath-taking perfection.
In fact, if you’re a fan of the hit TV show Broadchurch, the scenery may look familiar – not only is the chalet from Series One just opposite, but the show’s main filming location of West Bay is a short drive away.
Sleeping up to six guests, you can relax with a Sea Breeze in the open-plan living and dining space, with a well-equipped kitchen running alongside, and comfy furniture positioned right by the huge bi-fold doors.
(Yes, there’s a TV… but with scenery as incredible as this, you may decide you don’t need it!)
When the sun’s out, you can head through those doors, straight out onto the decking terrace for laughter-fuelled conversation at the bench seating, as day slowly transforms into night.
Ideal for families, there’s a mix of stylish bedrooms to choose from, all decorated in fresh, coastal colours, and boasting a serene ambience to help ease you into a sound night’s sleep.
You’ll find a cosy double and a twin room on the ground floor, and a kingsize room – complete with its own TV, and gorgeous sloped window to help you awake to stunning sea views – on the first.Keep reading

Meanwhile, to the west lies Golden Cap, the highest point in Dorset. Climb to the top, and be rewarded with the most spectacular, far-reaching coastal views imaginable.
