This attractive accessible ground-floor holiday home, set in the heart of beautiful Dorset, is part of a charming complex of properties and a short stroll from the historic and breathtaking Jurassic Coast.

Whisk family and friends away on a holiday to remember and settle down at this converted barn. With open-plan, sociable spaces for family film nights and use of the shared facilities at the neighbouring holiday park, find something for everyone at this humble abode. Sleeping four across two bedrooms, this single-storey, accessible bolthole is perfect for small families looking to escape. Close to the beach at Charmouth (less than a mile), enjoy beach days on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, or head inland for an adventure in one of the surrounding AONBs.

 

Step inside or access this welcoming dwelling via the ramp and make yourselves at home. Sitting beneath a striking vaulted ceiling, the open-plan living space has a pair of French doors which flood the space with natural light and create a calm ambience. The kitchen, lounge and diner fit together perfectly and allow you to enjoy spending sociable times together even if you’re the designated chef who’s been tasked with cooking up a storm. Find all you need to serve up a feast and plate up at the dining table or step down to the patio for an al fresco meal. After making the most of the shared facilities at the neighbouring holiday park, including a swimming pool, café, sauna and play area, rest tired heads in the pair of welcoming bedrooms. Both rooms have access to outside, making them perfect for rising and shining and sipping your morning coffee in the fresh air. There is ample off-road parking.

 

Pack a picnic, pick up your bucket and spade and wander down to the local beach at Charmouth which lies less than a mile from home. With so many spots to explore, travel along the coast and visit a beach a day, being sure to travel to Lyme Regis (4.5 miles), Seatown (4.5 miles) and the iconic West Bay (8 miles). After salty days, treat yourselves to a meal out in the vibrant county town of Dorchester (23 miles).

Due to Covid 19 it was a bit sterile none of the usual bits and pieces restaurant info, Appliance instructions, sometimes board games that are often in such properties but that is a reassurance at the moment.

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.
