  • Ideal location in a seaside village which lies in the heart of the Jurassic Coast's fossil hunting country
  • Great destination for walking with many scenic routes inland and along the South West Coast Path
  • Enjoy sea glimpses from the spacious, private garden while dining al fresco on a summery evening 
Property code: DC057

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.

A beautiful cottage . Very comfortable and cosy. We had some lovely evenings in front of the fire. Owner was extremely helpful when we needed them. We are looking to book again. Stairs arent for the faint hearted up to master bedroom! But for us added to the charm.

Cottage could be fine, but the maintenance and cleaning was not up to a standard for a holiday cottage. Cleaning - generally poor, certainly not the deep clean necessary at this time. Cobwebs/dirt on window ledges, light fittings, on shelves where glasses are kept, under sofa etc. damp smell in cupboard. Due to no cover on chimney a large Jackdaw gRead moreot into the front rom.

Lovely Character house, very clean and spacious. Great bathrooms and comfy beds. Kitchen fully equipped. Beware of the arch entrance as very narrow. It was a tight fit for our car so we parked on the road.

Lovely cottage in a good location to explore Dorset or even venture into Devon. The George was nice to eat at and very reasonable. The chippy, although a tad pricy and busy, was nice. Beds are comfy. Kitchen very well equipped. There is a small yard at the back which is nice to eat. We fit 2 Corsa's in the parking space at the back.

Location

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.
