Affording sea glimpses from the garden and only 0.5 miles from Charmouth Beach, this pretty self-catering cottage invites guests to explore Dorset’s natural gems and enjoy a luxurious base.

With great access to Dorset’s country and coast, visit one of the year-round dog-friendly beaches like Monmouth Beach (3.5 miles) or Church Cliff Beach (2.5 miles). Come rain or shine, the opportunity for salt and vinegar-soaked fish and chips overlooking the sea should not be missed, followed by an ice cream if you’ve still got room. To make you sure you are well-stocked throughout your stay the village shop is only 300 yards away, whilst the dog-friendly village pub is 50 yards away and offers a warm fire in winter and beer garden in summer.

Whether you are holidaying with children or catching up with friends, this property has space and occasion for all generations, two-legged and four. Spread over three floors, the downstairs is home to the main living areas. For lazy mornings with a cup of tea and relaxed evenings with a glass of vino, park up in the lounge and bury yourself in one of the comfortable seats. Providing ample entertainment in the form of books and a TV with streaming software, evenings in are taken care of. When stomachs begin to growl, make way for the well-provisioned kitchen. With one end home to all sorts of mod cons and appliances like a dishwasher and oven, the far end is accessed via a step up and has a washing machine and microwave. When you are ready to gather around and share plates, the dining room features a family-sized dining table and chairs. With original floors, wood burner and generous supply of logs, this room is particularly atmospheric in winter and ideal for dinner parties at home. When you are ready to explore the first floor, a steep staircase with rope handrail takes you to the first floor WC and then, via a couple more steps, the two double bedrooms and family bathroom. Continuing the traditional themes, each first-floor bedroom features Victorian fireplaces and showcases authentic quirks. Following another steep, winding staircase with rope handrail, you will pop out onto the second floor. In an open-plan design, the roof space has been cleverly repurposed to fit the master bedroom. A light-filled room, this bedroom has a 6ft double bed and benefits from crisp, clean tones, sea views and an en-suite.

With plenty to do inside and out, the cottage has an enclosed rear courtyard accessed via a step with potted plants, log store with freezer and seating area with chiminea – ideal for evenings of socialising. As well as this courtyard, a further garden lawn with sea glimpses, decked area and summer house is set apart from the house on the far side of a shared parking area.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A lovely property. Spacious, well equipped in ideal location

Reviewed by Mrs V Johnstone 4th November 2018

Lovely cottage, but parking was very difficult; through a narrow archway then opposite another property so had to shuffle backwards and forwards to get out. Did not park there as too worried about scraping the car. Just stated not suitable for 4x4's but anything larger than fiesta would be difficult to park. Parked on the main road so not a problemRead more. Very warm and cosy with efficient heating (working fireplaces as well but too warm to use). Useful having a separate toilet to the main bathroom. Traffic noise from The Street from about 7am in the front bedroom, due to single glazed sash windows. Back bedroom very quiet. Fantastic garden fully enclosed for the dog, and property very dog friendly, i. e. no white carpets. Fully equiped with everything you could possibly want, from games and toys, to T.V packages and cooking equipment. Hide

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.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
