Cosy yet spacious holiday cottage situated on the gorgeous Dorset coast. Perfect for exploring the beautiful beaches and coastal footpaths which the Jurassic coast has to offer.

Situated in the traditional Dorset seaside village of Charmouth, this charming gated holiday complex contains a number of cosy cottages, converted from former farm buildings. The lovely Charmouth beach is within walking distance and the property's great location means the local pubs and shops are also just a short walk from your door, ideal for picking up the morning paper and more. A short drive or bus ride away is the wonderful town of Lyme Regis, which offers a beautiful unspoilt seafront with sheltered south-facing beaches and traditional deckchairs that line the promenade in the summer. The Jurassic coastline is now known as one of the wonders of the natural world and spans 95 miles of the Dorset and East Devon coastline, taking in some of the very finest walks and views available. There are many other attractions in the area including the charming resorts of Beer, Branscombe and numerous National Trust properties and gardens to name but a few.

Upon entering the cottage, you will be met with a spacious entrance hall leading to the lounge/diner area which has comfy sofas, a TV and DVD. There is ample room around the dining table to enjoy leisurely meals and French doors from this room open on to the outside patio area. The kitchen includes an electric oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. There is a separate utility room containing a washer/dryer. Completing the ground floor is a wet room with a shower and WC. Heading upstairs there are two bedrooms, firstly a Master double bedroom with a king-size bed and TV, and also a triple bedroom containing three single beds. The bathroom on the first floor has a shower over the bath and a WC.

Outside is an enclosed patio area with a table and chairs. Guests are invited to enjoy the neighbouring holiday park which includes a shared, covered outdoor heated swimming pool (available during specific dates only and not available all year, please refer to the 'need to know' section for details), Char Valley Café which serves speciality teas and coffees and a shared outdoor children's play area. For a reduced charge and available to adults, is the well-equipped Char Valley Health Club, including a gym, indoor pool, sauna and steam room. The beach, shops and pubs are all a short walk away.

Comfortable cottage in a quiet location, with secure parking on Charmouths Main Street. Only a few minutes walk from the beach and with the start of The Golden Cap walk close by. All in, a great place to explore the Jurassic Coast.
