This beautiful detached cottage comes with its own piece of ancient history; surrounding the rear courtyard is the 13th century Abbot’s Wall.

Built in 1890, this handsome detached cottage has been beautifully modernised to create a stunning bolthole for family getaways or breaks with friends. Designed with entertaining in mind, the spacious kitchen/diner opens onto a sunny patio through French doors, perfect for al fresco dining. A short stroll brings you into the centre of Charmouth and its popular pubs, fish bar and picturesque pebble beach, while the charming seaside town of Lyme Regis is just 2 miles away.

Inside, the shaker-style kitchen/diner is ideal for socialising, with stone flooring, a breakfast bar, farmhouse-style table and French doors to the patio. When the sun is shining, enjoy meals in the beautiful courtyard garden, which offers sea glimpses and is bordered by an ancient abbot’s wall. Or, for those chilly nights, cosy up beside the roaring wood burner in the spacious lounge and enjoy a film, book or music on the iPod dock. Steps from the courtyard lead to the parking area with room for two cars.

The friendly and traditional village of Charmouth is situated at the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coast. With miles of wonderful walks to be enjoyed along the South West Coast Path, the likes of Lyme Regis (2.5 miles), Seatown (4 miles) and Pinhay Bay (5 miles) all lie within easy reach. At the end of a long day on foot, refuel with a delicious meal at the village pub or stock up on supplies at the nearby farm shop (4 miles) and prepare your own feast in your stunning kitchen/diner.

The decor, fixtures and fittings are top quality with everything you might need, including lots of local information and recommendations.

This is a beautiful cottage! It is immaculately presented and spotlessly clean. All the fixtures and fittings are top quality and it lacks for nothing, especially in the superb kitchen which also has underfloor heating, ideal in December!

The cottage was lovely - so clean and well equipped. Everything was ready for us and so nicely presented with fresh flowers and a few essentials in the fridge, and logs for the wood burning stove. We had a windy and rainy few days and Penn Cottage was the perfect place to come back to after walks on the beach. Thank you.

This cottage was extremely well appointed and the situation in Charmouth village is walking distance from the beach and coastal path. The local bus stops outside the house which is useful but noisy and invasive as the people sitting upstairs on the bus had a good view into the courtyard garden! The road noise was unacceptable at times with traffic Read morecoming down the hill and through the village from early morning until late evening. 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.
