Property code: JURRE

Less than a mile from the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, this cosy home is perfect for seaside holidays. Sleeping five guests over two bedrooms, invite family and friends along to escape to the coast. Fill your day with fossil hunting, sea swimming or clifftop hiking before settling down for the night at this welcoming abode. With access to shared facilities at the neighbouring holiday park including a pool, sauna and a play area, there is plenty to keep guests of all ages entertained.

Make your way inside this fantastically located home and leave boots, bags and coats in the spacious hallway before getting comfortable. A pair of sofas in the open-plan lounge/diner invite you to do just that and provide a welcome spot to relax in after adventures and days in the great outdoors. Put your feet up with a mug of tea and switch on the TV for a lazy afternoon or throw on a DVD for a film night and swap the tea for a glass of something cold. A fresh space with all you need to enjoy cooking up a storm, the kitchen has plenty of room for a couple of chefs to rustle up treats to be enjoyed at the dining table. Eat together and spend sociable evenings nattering around the table or throw open the French doors and enjoy al fresco aperitifs in the fresh air. Rinse away the day in the ground-floor wet room or climb to the first floor and soak in the bath. Rest your head in one of two charming bedrooms and take care as rooms on the first floor have sloping ceilings. There is ample off-road parking.

With so much to explore, plan your time wisely and enjoy all that Dorset has to offer. For a traditional, family-friendly day by the sea, with the added bonus of being in fossil-hunting heaven, travel less than a mile to the local beach at Charmouth and spend time in the sand and sea. For a different vantage point of the ocean, wander the National Trust’s Golden Cap estate where a plethora of walks await.
