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.

Charmouth is a relaxing coastal village set in a delightful part of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has a stunning beach which is a fantastic spot for fossil hunting. The historic town of Lyme Regis (3 miles) is known for its associations with Jane Austen and Henry Fielding and is home to the famous 13th-century Cobb Harbour. The town also offers a range of places to eat and drink, as well as independent shops, a theatre, cinema and a beautiful beach with views over Lyme Bay. The area makes an ideal gateway to Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, and there are many miles of coastal, rural and clifftop walks to enjoy, with Golden Cap just 6 miles away.

On entering this light, attractive and welcoming 18th-century cottage which is located at the top of a steep, quiet lane, you will find yourself in the spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The delightful lounge is a lovely space to relax in, with comfortable seating, Smart TV/DVD, music system, a warming wood burner and a large selection of DVDs. There’s a charming dining area and the kitchen is fully equipped with an induction hob, oven, microwave, washing machine and fridge with an ice compartment. The freezer and dryer are stored in the nearby utility area. Upstairs there are two cosy bedrooms: one double room and a twin room. Please note the twin room has reduced height in the eaves. You will also find a shower room complete with shower and WC.

Heading outside, there’s a small courtyard with seating to the front of the property. The pretty back garden is reached via a few steps and has a sunny terrace with garden furniture, a BBQ and lawn. From here you can enjoy an al fresco meal and admire the fabulous views of the surrounding countryside. Parking is available on the lane, which leads to a small nature reserve.

Cosy cottage with a pleasant garden and sitting out area. A dishwasher would have been a welcome asset.

Lovely and cosy cottage, with everything we could need to make us feel welcome and stunning views. The village of Charmouth was just perfect for a relaxing late summer break and would visit again.

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.
