Property code: TIDES

A delightful holiday home in the traditional Dorset seaside village of Charmouth, close to the Jurassic Coast and ideal for visiting popular towns and resorts including Lyme Regis and Branscombe.

Wonderfully located less than a mile from the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, spend days at the beach before relaxing at your home from home. This cosy abode has all you need to stay entertained throughout your stay, with the shared facilities at the neighbouring holiday park providing a real treat. After days fossil-hunting and dipping the sea, refresh yourselves with some lengths of the heated pool, or steam away the day in the sauna whilst little ones enjoy the play area. Sleeping six guests over three rooms, whisk family and friends away for a holiday to remember.

Step inside and find yourself in the kitchen where you can fill the cupboards with ingredients and rustle up delicious feasts. Pop the kettle on and take a brew into the open-plan lounge/diner where comfortable, reclining sofas welcome you to sink down and the TV/DVD caters for lazy afternoons and film nights. When dinnertime arrives, plate up at the dining table or step outside and descend a step to the patio where you can enjoy al fresco banquets and sundowner drinks. With a ground-floor wet room, a bathroom with shower over the bath and an en-suite, there are plenty of places to rinse off or to enjoy a relaxing soak before you head to bed. The three bedrooms offer tranquil places to drift off, with one double residing on the ground floor and the master king-size and the twin room located on the first floor. Take care of sloping ceilings upstairs. There is ample off-road parking.

Pack up a picnic and head to the local beach at Charmouth which sits less than a mile from your door. Spend family-friendly days in the sand and sea, or head further afield and explore one of the many bays and coves which dot the fabulous surrounding coastline. A 3.5-mile journey north will take you to the National Trust’s Lambert’s and Coney’s Castle, a pair of hill forts steeped in history and starting points for brilliant walks.

Overall lovely accommodation. Great location. Good size. Well equiped. The cottage was not cleaned well however. Black hairs on the bed, no cleaning under the reclining sofa, and crumbs on the table. The hoover also needs replacing. The highchair was very stained too. Biggest disappointment was the playground and pool being closed with no heads up Read moreand covid blamed when lock down rules allowed these facilities. We had a love holiday though and the above issues can all be easily rectified. Hide

Cottage was very well equipped and comfortable to stay in ,the few things that was disappointing was the outside area could have done with a brush and clean as it was dirty when we checked in,a little more maintainence inspections required as our down stairs bathroom showerhead wouldn't stay up having to tie it up with string and toilet roll holderRead more was loose. Any one staying at this property or any other properties in this area we recommend to bring your own kettle due to limescale Hide

Three of us stayed at Tides Turn for a week where we each had our own bedroom and bathroom. The cottage was spacious enough that we could feel relaxed. We were immediately impressed with how immaculately clean it all was. There is a good variety of kitchen equipment and there was nothing extra we needed.

Very good location. Basic facilities. Poor soundproofing made things difficult with small children after bedtime. The cleanliness of parts of the cottage on arrival could have been better.

We stayed at Tides Turn for 5 night as a group of 4 adults and two 12 year olds. The cottage was well equipped and having three bathrooms was definitely a plus point. Overall, it is spacious and well-equipped. Due to Covid restrictions, the leisure facilities weren't open but we busied ourselves with trips to the beach at Lyme Regis and Charmouth..Read more. Would definitely recommend. 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.
