Set in a delightful gated holiday complex, this charming cottage, with access to a heated swimming pool, is ideal for guests wanting to explore Dorset’s historic Jurassic Coast.

Situated in the traditional Dorset seaside village of Charmouth, this gated holiday complex offers a selection of well thought out, purpose-built accommodation within these converted former farm buildings. With onsite leisure facilities for all ages, the property is also conveniently located just a short stroll from the village amenities and Charmouth beach. Also nearby is the wonderful town of Lyme Regis, with its fossil-rich beach and historic Cobb, a beautiful unspoilt seafront with sheltered south-facing beaches and traditional deckchairs that line the promenade in the summer. The Jurassic coastline has been designated as England's first Natural World Heritage Site and spans nearly one hundred miles of the Dorset and East Devon coastline. There are many attractions in the area including the charming resorts of Beer, Branscombe, Crealy Adventure Park and numerous National Trust properties and gardens to name but a few.

On entering the property you will find yourself in the cosy and bright open-plan lounge/diner. With a TV/DVD, the lounge is snug and ideal for relaxing in at the end of the day.

We had stayed a few times over the years on the touring site and love the area. The family has grown now and a tourer is no longer an option, so went for a cottage. It didn't disappoint it had loads of room and well appointed. Everything you could need is provided and with 7 adults and 3 year old it never felt cramped. 10 min walk from the beach anRead mored cliff top walks. Staff were friendly and very welcoming. We will definitely be going again! Hide
