Overlooking Charmouth beach, this spacious detached property boasts a light and airy interior with a wonderful outdoor area for dining al fresco.

Situated on a secluded lane in the seaside village of Charmouth, this beautiful Victorian cottage is perfect for big family getaways. It’s located just 600 metres from Charmouth Beach and the South West Coast Path. And with a toddler-friendly playroom plus a fully stocked games room, this cottage offers a fun seaside escape for all ages.

This cottage’s spacious design boasts an array of original Victorian features. Seven steps lead up to the front porch where you’ll find space for shoes and coats. Then discover a bright double-aspect sitting room with a log burner and stunning sea views. The dining room is just as special thanks to its ornate Victorian fireplace and original wooden flooring. In the kitchen, you’ll find a beautiful range oven plus a dishwasher and breakfast bar. There’s also a handy utility room with washer and dryer plus access to one of the property’s three bathrooms. The other two are located upstairs alongside three well-considered bedrooms – a king-size and a twin which both feature Victorian fireplaces and sea views, plus a further twin. Outside, a bright conservatory opens out onto a patio and three terraced lawns. And if a games room with table football and pool table wasn’t enough, there’s also everything you need for badminton, croquet and lawn bowls. The garage has parking space for two cars.

After the family games, wander down to Charmouth Beach and visit the Heritage Coast Centre for an amazing display of fossils, wildlife and even a sea dragon! Locals regularly host rock pool rambles and the stretch of beach between Charmouth and Lyme Regis is renowned as one of the best in the UK. Lyme Regis itself is only 2 miles away and boasts an array of pubs, restaurants and even a fossil museum.

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.
