Built in 1797 as part of Charmouth’s Almshouse, this light and welcoming property is now a fantastic holiday base for a family looking to explore Dorset’s countryside and the glorious Jurassic Coast.

Formerly part of Charmouth’s Almshouse, this semi-detached cottage is just half a mile from the dog-friendly sandy beach. Perfect for family holidays with the dog, the cottage boasts good-sized homely rooms with a wood burner in the lounge and a delightful sunroom for reading. In the summer, enjoy BBQs in the charming garden with views of rolling countryside or dine at the local pub.

Prepare home-cooked meals in the traditional shaker-style kitchen and dine at the large antique table in the lounge next door. After a busy day on the beach, put your feet up on one of the comfortable sofas nearby while the wood burner creates a warm and cosy atmosphere in the inglenook fireplace. Lazy afternoons can be spent with a good book in the sunroom, which opens onto the stunning cottage garden. With raised beds, shrubs, an al fresco dining area and BBQ, the garden offers wonderful views over rolling countryside. There is parking for one car with additional parking on the lane.

The delightful seaside village of Charmouth sits on Dorset’s dramatic Jurassic Coast in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Brimming with old world charm, the village is home to pubs, cafes, a Post Office, bakery and convenience store while the beach is famous for its fossils.

A fabulous cottage in a CHARMing CHARMouth. Spacious and well equipped. Our bed was so comfortable and the added extra to relax in the sun room snug was great. Though high up from the village centre the cottage is on the SouthWest Coast path and our 13 yo Black lab, managed the walk up the hill, across the golf course and down into wonderful Lyme RRead moreegis. The bus ride back dropped us 50 yards from St Gabriel's. Very likely that we will rebook (rare for us) so hurry to beat us. (;>) Hide

Good location for the beach and visiting local area. We had difficulty with parking due to the length of our estate car, this caused a problem for the neighbour. There is a road close by where you can park if your vehicle is too big for the driveway. Check-in is at 4pm and not 3pm, if you arrive and the property isn't ready you can happily wait in Read morethe Royal Oak pub on the High Street! Hide

We stayed as a family of two adults, three teenagers, and an energetic and inquisitive dog. The cottage was well appointed and comfortable with everything we needed. It remained cool during the August heatwave, and the sun room didn't get too hot.

The small driveway was perfect for our medium-ish sized car (Toyota Coralla), and no problems backing into it. Hide

Lovely house, our family really enjoyed our stay. Be aware that the house is located on a steep hill, worth considering for anyone with mobility issues. On the downside the garden was overgrown and this was disappointing. I would stay there again.

We were so lucky to have this charming cottage, so typical and well situated in a quiet and friendly neighbourhood. The weather was just fantastic, we were mostly outdoors hiking but back home by late afternoons, we enjoyed the still bright and sunny rooms.

Bright and airy cottage in a fantastic location. Lots of dog walks from the doorstep, along the beach and inland too. The village had everything we needed; local bakery (Mon/Wed/Fri), good food and beer at the pub, well stocked local store and a great chippy.

A lovely house in a great location. It was worth the steep hill to stay in such a beautiful village. The house was very comfortable and we enjoyed using the garden. There was lots of space for our teenagers and our dog. We especially liked the garden room, which was nice to relax in at the end of a busy day.
