Property code: JURHO

Cosy yet spacious holiday cottage situated on the gorgeous Dorset coast. Perfect for exploring the beautiful beaches and coastal footpaths the Jurassic Coast has to offer.

Set in a charming, gated holiday complex with access to the neighbouring holiday park, this home sleeps five guests in two bedrooms. Situated right in the heart of the pretty seaside village, Charmouth, and close to the beach and amenities, this is the ideal location for families to base themselves on their Dorset holiday.

 

The house itself has everything you could need for your self-catering stay from a well-equipped kitchen and separate utility room to a spacious lounge/diner. Settle down on one of the comfortable sofas and watch a film after a busy day exploring the Jurassic Coast. All guests can fit around the dining table to enjoy an evening meal together. Upstairs are the two neutrally toned bedrooms, one of which is a triple room with three single beds, ideal for children. Through patio doors from the lounge is an enclosed private patio area. Guests here have access to the neighbouring holiday park, which has a cafe, children’s play area, gym, sauna, steam room and an outdoor heated swimming pool.

 

Charmouth has pubs, shops and a magnificent beach, all within walking distance. The beach is backed by striking cliffs, and the stretches of coast that lead from here are beautifully unspoilt. Lyme Regis (4.5 miles) has a traditional promenade with striped deckchairs and little cafes for you to pick up an ice cream on a summer’s day. Children will love a trip to Crealy Theme Park (30 miles) with its many rides, attractions, zoo and live shows. Keen walkers will find spectacular routes along the Jurassic coastline and a trip to the National Trust’s Golden Cap (4 miles) is a must for fantastic views out to sea.

We were pleasantly surprised that we were in a gated area and liked the privacy and the quiet atmosphere. We have stayed in Charmouth in different areas but this was certainly the best.accommodation we have had and although more expensive .worth the extra. The situation in The Street we found convenient for shops and buses.

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.
