Lovely interior, as shown in the photos. Perfect location. Great access to fields and woods from the site for dog walks, and 8 mins drive to Lyme, 5 mins to Charmouth. Easy parking on-site. The host supplied some bottled water, but there were no signs up by the taps to say not drinking water, but I presume that was the case. I'd pack a hot water boRead morettle as there isn't central heating. Hide

Lovely well equipped cottage. Disappointed that it was further away from Chalmouth than we thought...a long hill climb to get back to Fernhill Heights! An up to date bus timetable would have been useful. But we had a lovely holiday and loved Lyme Regis. Shame that the hotel wasn't open to non residents.

We have just returned from a weeks holiday at Little Char. It was beautiful, very well equipped, clean and comfortable. The outside space was lovely to sit and enjoy a peaceful drink. Just a short drive to Lyme Regis which is very quaint with plenty of eating places. Would definitely recommend.

The property is an ideal size for 2 people, its in a peaceful setting and it looks as though its been newly refurbished, everything was clean. The location is great if you like walking, as you can start walks straight from the Fernhill grounds onto the South West coastal path. The nearest grocery shop is in Charmouth about 2 mins drive. We loved LyRead moreme Regis (about 5 mins drive) it's got plenty of places to eat and the views along the coast are amazing. Hide

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.
