This handsome Georgian cottage sits in a prime position on the village high street in Charmouth, just half a mile from the beach.

After a busy day on the beach or walking the spectacular Dorset countryside, return to your delightful private garden for an al-fresco meal.

The kitchen/diner is a light and airy room with terracotta tiles, a Belfast sink, a range-style cooker, a fully equipped kitchen and a bright dining area that opens out onto the garden.

What a fabulous house! We've had a great week staying at Bay Tree. It is so well equipped, and lots of really thoughtful touches. Really nice to stay somewhere that feels like a real home. It's spacious and comfortable, and has everything that you could ever want from a holiday home. Being just a stone's throw from the beach was great, and there's Read moreso much to do in the area. We hope to return! Hide

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
