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.
