Affording sea glimpses from the garden and walking distance from Charmouth Beach, this charming character cottage invites guests to explore Dorset’s natural gems and enjoy a homely base.
This attractive, mid-terrace, Georgian property is located in the popular village of Charmouth, which is the ideal coastal retreat for those looking to explore the natural beauty of Dorset and its Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Shops and pubs are within walking distance and Charmouth beach is under a mile away, famous for its fossil hunting, so pack (or hire) your goggles and hammers. Alternatively, head 3 miles west to the bustling seaside town of Lyme Regis to enjoy its beach, shops and eateries.
Sympathetically restored, this property is true to its Georgian style with original features such as fireplaces, muted colours and some period furniture, but these are seamlessly blended with contemporary elements to create a bright, airy and relaxing feel. On the ground floor, there is a living room and separate dining room, which leads out to the small courtyard, and a well-equipped galley kitchen to the rear. Two narrow staircases lead up to the first and second floors where you’ll find the three bedrooms (1 king-size, 2 double), family bathroom and en-suite shower room. Outside, there is a parking area for small/medium sized cars and there a garden with a decked dining area.
As well as Charmouth and Lyme Regis, there is lots more to discover in this part of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, including plenty of beautiful beaches along the coast, such as Seatown (6 miles) and West Bay (9 miles). The South West Coast Path connects these beaches, towns and villages, so put on your sensible footwear, stretch your legs and breathe in the fresh, sea air. For something different, you can walk amongst the swans at Abbotsbury Swannery (17 miles) before wandering around the quaint, historic village. Across the border into Devon, you could visit the seaside town of Seaton (12 miles) and enjoy a peaceful tram ride to Colyton (10 miles).
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
