Boasting the best of town vibes and coastal cool, this pretty property is only 3 miles from Lyme Regis, “the Pearl of Dorset”, and is ideal for group gatherings.

Dating back to the 15th century, this charming mid-row cottage has an abundance of character combined with modern styling to create a holiday haven in the village of Charmouth. Sleeping five, the cottage makes a perfect base for a group wishing to explore the best of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with the coast just over half a mile away.

Step inside to discover the contemporary and stylish sitting/dining room, where neutral decor creates a calming ambience. The wood burner and underfloor heating make this room a cosy space to relax in after a day exploring the Dorset coastline. Towards the back of the house, the kitchen has a sleek finish with everything you need to create a feast for the family. Upstairs, you’ll find two of the property’s bedrooms – a double and a single, both benefiting from a TV – plus a family bathroom; just mind your head in the eaves. Climb the stairs to the second floor where you’ll find the final double bedroom, also with a TV, which enjoys stunning views of the local area from two windows. Outside, the small walled courtyard is a lovely spot for enjoying a glass of wine in the evening. There is parking for the property on the village lane.

Charmouth boasts a wide range of village facilities, including pubs, takeaways, a market and a leisure centre, all within half a mile of the cottage. A quintessential Dorset beach is just over half a mile away and is close to the South West Coast Path, where you can explore further. Just 3 miles away is the popular resort of Lyme Regis where there’s a wide range of cafes, restaurants, independent shops and, of course, more of the sweeping Jurassic coastline.

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

Beautiful little cottage within walking distance to the beach and pub, perfect! The owners had thought of everything and it was decorated to the highest standard. Coat hooks by the front door would be my only suggestion. Loved the little courtyard.

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.
