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.

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.

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.
