Our Weekend Away in Broadchurch AKA Briport, Dorset

Did you watch Broadchurch? I loved it but I never really thought about where it was filmed.
Then, last weekend we went to visit relatives in Bridport, Dorset and stayed a couple of nights.
On the first day my Brother-in-law took us to West Bay which is less than a mile away from his home and instantly I recognised it from Broadchurch. It was quite amusing seeing lots of people stop and take photos of 'Wessex' police station. Of course I had to sneak one in myself.

And here's one I took of the Jurassic Coastline at West Bay.

The next day the kids went fossil hunting at nearby Charmouth Beach. The beach was too rocky for me so I had to be content with sitting on the promenade being calmed by the sea and enjoying the sunshine.  It was a real strange day weather wise. When we arrived it was raining so hard we couldn't get out of the car, but once the rain cloud passed we had lovely sunshine! A couple more dark clouds passed by but we didn't have anymore rain.

After lunch we went to visit Lyme Regis, a seaside town I'd not visited before. It turned out to be a beautiful day and the kids quickly changed into their costumes and went paddling in the sea and were building sandcastle on the beach.

Once again I was stranded on the promenade but my longing to tip my toes in the sea got the better of me and it was so close I thought I could make it. I asked my hubby to hold me and I hobbled barefoot across the sand to the water and paddled. It was amazing! It was also very cold and sent my feet and legs into spasm so walking back was incredibly painful and I couldn't get back up the step to the promenade and hubby had to ask a stranger to help lift me. It was so worth it though.

On the evening we had a lovely BBQ in our relatives back garden while the kids played on the trampoline. It was such a lovely weekend and our relatives were amazing hosts.

The next day we made our way home and decided to stop off at Weston-Super-Mare for lunch at a beach side cafe.

We love Dorset so much we are planning on returning next year for a whole week.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay



Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I've also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me...is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I've loved. If I don't love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It's always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I'll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
