Charming holiday cottage located just a short stroll away from the popular World Heritage Jurassic Coastline and village amenities.

Perfectly positioned less than a mile from the spectacular Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, escape to Dorset for a well-deserved break. Sleeping four guests across two bedrooms, this home is great for family breaks or get togethers with a couple of friends. With access to the neighbouring holiday park and its shared facilities, spend every moment of your holiday enjoying time with loved ones, whether you’re getting salty and sandy at the Charmouth beach or swimming lengths of the pool.

Stepping inside this comfortable home, find yourselves in the open-plan heart of the house, the lounge/diner. With all you need to enjoy a night in, sink into the welcoming sofas and switch on the TV for a family film night. If the evening is balmy and light, throw open the French doors and let the warm air flood inside. After long adventures or beach days, cook up a storm in the contemporary kitchen where you will find all you need to feed four hungry mouths. Dine inside or out and enjoy making the most of the patio area for sundowner drinks after swims, steams and saunas in the shared facilities next door. If you’re spending lots of time at the beach, make use of the handy utility room, perfect for washing and drying salty towels ahead of tomorrow’s plans. Long days call for cosy nights and peaceful night’s sleep; the two, first-floor bedrooms have characterful, sloping ceilings and provide you with a calming space to rest up. Soak in the tub for a relaxing start to your day before heading downstairs to put the kettle on. There is ample off-road parking.

An abundance of places to explore lie in wait. Fill your day with sandy toes and salty hair and enjoy a spot of fossil hunting and sea swimming at one of the many beaches which dot the local coastline. Closest to home is Charmouth (less than a mile) or travel further towards the bustling resort of Lyme Regis (4.5 miles). Surrounded by beautiful places, venture into the heart of the East Devon AONB (15 miles) or the Blackdown Hills AONB (16 miles).

Spacious & well equipped terraced cottage. In a good location with amenities & beach on your doorstep & a good base to explore the surrounding area. A personal preference would have been more privacy with regard to the outside space.

Rest Ashore was homely, clean and conveniently located close to the high street and local park. We had an excellent week. Axminster, Lyme Regis and Seatown are all within easy reach. Great views from the Charmouth clifftop. Best fish and chips for years available from the local chippy but queue up early as very popular.

The property is clean and quite well located for walking down to the beach. The team on site were friendly & helpful and the parking is good. That said the property lacks character being purpose built & for the price is quite basically furnished.

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.
