Set in a tranquil spot in a pretty Dorset village, this attractive and cosy cottage offers lovely accommodation for a family or a couple seeking a perfect base for exploring the Lyme Regis area.

This charming 18th-century two-bedroom cottage is in the seaside village of Charmouth, just half a mile from a beautiful sandy beach. Surrounded by stunning Dorset countryside, it’s situated at the top of a steep, quiet lane which leads to a small nature reserve. Its proximity to local pubs (150 metres) and shops (400 metres), makes this the perfect escape for couples or families wanting to step back from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

A pretty courtyard garden and an entrance porch lead you into the cottage’s open-plan sitting room, modern kitchen and dining area, with a traditional quarry tiled floor. A comfortable sofa provides the perfect spot to snuggle down in front of the wood burner, if the evenings are getting a little cooler. The Smart TV, stereo and DVD library should keep everyone entertained, too. To the rear of the kitchen, there’s also a handy utility area. Upstairs, discover a welcoming double bedroom with glimpses of the sea in the distance. The twin bedroom enjoys some lovely country views as well – just mind your head in the eaves. There is also a bathroom, with a shower. Outside you’ll find steps leading up to a pretty rear garden with a terrace, lawn and a BBQ. Spectacular views of the rolling countryside make this a wonderful spot to watch the sun go down. Parking is available on the lane.

Charmouth is within Dorset’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and its beach is world renowned for its fossils. Just 2 miles away is the delightful town of Lyme Regis, with its coastal and countryside walks, quaint shopping streets and iconic Cobb harbour. The bustling market town of Bridport is just 7 miles from the cottage. Famous for the quality of its local produce, foodies will be in their element.

This cottage is probably one of the best self-catering destinations we have stayed in. For 2 people it is absolutely ideal. 5 stars for everything! In fact we have already booked the cottage for next September (2022). Really struggling to find anything we did not like about it. And the area is so, so nice - if we were younger we would probably moveRead more to Dorset. Hide

A nice small cottage conveniently located in Charmouth. Was clean and reasonably well equipped in a quiet area. The beach is only a 10 minute walk and there are plenty of walks available heading inland from the cottage inland. Parking is limited outside the cottage and the lane leading up to the cottage is very steep and will be struggle for anyoneRead more of limited mobility (the walk back from the beach is uphill all the way as is the walk from the local shops) so bear this in mind before booking.

Lovely cottage! Well equipped and clean! Its small but plenty of room for a family of 4. The huge garden is a lovely bonus. The cottage is on a steep hill so may not be suitable for everyone. Short walk to the beach and village amenities. Would definitely stay here again if we are in the area!

Lovely cottage with magnificent garden. The village is charming and being able to walk to the beach is a privilege. The cottage is compact but it was comfortable with 4 people and it has everything you need including a kitchen for cooking meals.

Pleasant holiday cottage in convenient location, not ideal for less mobile as situated on steepish hill, would stay again if this area was required.

We really enjoyed our stay at Hillcot. The cottage was lovely and clean, comfortable beds, well kitted out and the big garden was great. The housekeeper and local handyman were super helpful and responsive. Charmouth itself was delightful, everything you need for a week's stay all within 5-10min walk from the cottage. We loved walking to Lyme RegisRead more and up onto Golden Cap as well as pottering on the beach. We would highly recommend and would definitely stay there again if visiting Dorset. Hide

Great cottage but Chamouth a bit short on amenities, maybe due to the pandemic. One of the pubs in the village had recently closed and the other was open part time. Bakery shop didn't carry much stock and the wait for fish and chips was ridiculously long for a pretty average fish supper.

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.
