West View House is a fine character property situated in a rural position in the hamlet of Acton, a short distance from open country. The original building dates back to the 1800s and is of solid stone construction, rendered under a tiled roof with modern extensions being added over time.

The hamlet of Acton, originally built as living quarters for the quarrymen, lies 1 mile to the West of the village of Langton Matravers and about 1 mile from the sea via numerous footpaths, including routes towards Dancing Ledge, Seacombe cove and open countryside. Much of the area which surrounds the community is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much of which is owned by the National Trust and incorporates a World Heritage Coastline. The historic village of Corfe Castle is just over 2 miles away with the popular Swanage steam railway which seasonally connects Wareham to the mainline train service to London Waterloo; beaches at Studland and Swanage are nearby and the market town of Wareham is some 10 miles distant.
