"As a tourist yes...as a new member of community no"

I lived in Bridport for 3 years. I found whilst the beaches are beautiful and the views are gorgeous I unfortunately never felt at home here. A difficult place to fit in for new families that have no connection to the area. The vast majority of people are as the say "Born and Bread in the area. The people whilst pleasant enough definitely have their social groups and it is difficult to feel a sense of belonging or remotely fitting in. Due to the shrinking nature of the place in the cooler months- I think it averages around 1,500 it can feel incredibly isolating.
Pros
  • beach
  • views
  • good walking track
Cons
  • clicky
  • isolating
  • windy
