West of Abbotsbury lies the small village of West Bexington. It has a farm at the centre with a little modern development and bungalows from the 1930's leading down to the sea. The 16th century manor house with Jacobean oak panelling and flagstone floors has been converted to a hotel, just 500 yards from Chesil beach, with an excellent reputation for cuisine and service.

An failed attempt was made in the 1930's to develop West Bexington as a resort. The chalets, bungalows and the car park seen today date from that period.
