  • Characterful and stylish 15th century terrace cottage within walking distance to the beach
  • Ideal location in a seaside village which lies in the heart of the Jurassic Coast's fossil hunting country
  • Great destination for walking with many scenic routes inland and along the South West Coast Path
Property code: DC080

Located only half a mile from the wonderful Charmouth Beach, nothing says 'revitalise' like a healthy dose of sea air to start and end your day.

This charming 15th century cottage is nestled in a quiet terrace in the popular village of Charmouth. It is the perfect coastal retreat for families and friends looking to enjoy the natural beauty of Dorset and its Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Just a short walk (approx. 500m) away is Charmouth beach, which is famous for its fossil hunting, so be sure to pack (or hire) your goggles and hammers. Heading 3 miles west, you will find yourself in the bustling seaside town of Lyme Regis where you can enjoy its beach, independent shops and eateries.

Despite its history, this cottage offers guests contemporary living in a light, bright and airy setting. Stepping down through the front door into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, you will appreciate the stylish décor that blends contemporary furniture, rustic furniture and mod-cons, which are all set off by the occasional splash of colour. Heading upstairs, there are three lovely bedrooms (2 doubles and 1 single) and a contemporary family bathroom. To the rear of the property is a private walled courtyard lined with containers of pretty shrubs and flowers, the perfect place for a morning coffee or al fresco meal.

This part of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has plenty of stunning beaches, such as Seatown (6 miles) and West Bay (9 miles), which are all connected by the South West Coast Path, so put on your sensible shoes, stretch those legs and breathe in the sea air. For something different, you can wander around the quaint, historic village of Abbotsbury (17 miles) before walking amongst the swans at the swannery. Hopping across the border into Devon, you could visit the seaside town of Seaton (12 miles) and enjoy a tranquil tram ride to Colyton (10 miles).

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

Really nice, clean well-equipped cottage. Very comfortable. A good 1/2 mile walk to the sea, but you need to be able to negotiate the uphill walk back. Parking tight on the small forecourt, but there is parking nearby.

Although small from the outside, the cottage felt much bigger inside and was perfect for a family of 4. The back yard is really pretty with all its potted plants and lovely lighting. It's a nice downhill walk to the huge pebbly beach (obviously uphill on the way back), and to the little shops in the village. 10 mins drive to Lyme Regis. We had a prRead moreoblem with the bath whilst there and the owner was easily contacted and the problem was rectified the same day. Hide

Lovely cottage and good location although no parking - the gravel front was not big enough for our car although we parked opposite on the road ok. We had a great week and its a good spot for lots of walks along the coastal paths.

Very comfortable, clean and cosy cottage. Our dogs were welcomed too and loved their biscuits in the arrival pack! Not as close to the beach as we thought we would be. Nevertheless, we would highly recommend Hope Cottage and would love to return when we can.

This cottage is really lovely - very highly recommended. We were a group of 5 adults & two dogs visiting for long winter weekend. Living area & kitchen are really spacious & cosy at the same time. Second double bedroom is a bit of a squeeze, but it's quiet and has a lovely view of the countryside. Other two bedrooms are spacious. Decor is bright & Read moremarvellous. Wood burner is very efficient & easy to use. Kitchen extremely well equipped incl sweet things left for us and the dogs! Hide

Location

Map
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.
