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.

Situated on a steep, secluded lane which leads to a small nature reserve,  this pretty semi-detached cottage is nestled in the idyllic village of Charmouth and is perfect for exploring the Jurassic Coast. Charmouth Beach is just half a mile away and is the best fossil-hunting beach in the county. Lyme Regis is nearby and is famous for its links to Jane Austen and Henry Fielding. You can visit the 13th century Cobb Harbour, or sample the town’s great range of independent shops, pubs and restaurants. Further along the coast are several glorious beaches including Eype (8 miles), West Bay (9.5 miles) and Hive Beach (11 miles). You can also explore Golden Cap (5 miles) or venture inland to delightful towns including Bridport (8 miles) and Beaminster (14.5 miles).

On entering this pretty cottage you can leave coats and boots in the hall and go through to the light and attractive lounge. With plenty of seating, TV/DVD, iPod dock and a wood burner set in a large beamed inglenook, this is an ideal place to relax in at the end of a great day. You will also find a charming dining area which is perfect for sharing a family meal. The bright and stylish kitchen is equipped with an oven, fridge, freezer, microwave and dishwasher. The washing machine is stored in an outhouse accessed via six steps. There is also a delightful sunroom to relax in, with seating and views across the garden. Going upstairs, you will find two comfortable bedrooms on the first floor. Firstly, there is spacious, dual aspect double bedroom with a king-size bed, pretty window seat and a TV, and also a single bedroom. Both bedrooms have far reaching countryside views. Completing the first floor is the bathroom which has a shower over the small bath and a WC. A steep and winding staircase leads up to the second floor where you will find a twin bedroom with sea glimpses. This bedroom has access to a separate WC on the second floor - please note, both these rooms have low eaves.

Stepping outside, the rear enclosed garden is a lovely space to unwind in, with paved seating areas, a BBQ and fantastic rural views. Off-road parking is available for one car on the gated drive, with additional parking on the lane.

What a wonderful week we had, this cottage was in a super location, 5 minutes from the beach and walking distance to Lyme Regis along the coast. We are missing this little cottage already it was very quaint but fitted all of our families needs for a week of relaxing if we chose or walking miles, if the mood took us. We would definitely stop here agRead moreain. Hide

A homely, comfortable and characterful cottage, very clean and well equipped throughout. We loved the location, and the views from upstairs were stunning. As always, just so grateful that we could bring our small dog, who (along with us) found the garden delightful. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Super seaside village with two good pubs serving food (and welcome dogs), other restaurants, convenience store etc. Accessible to Exeter, Weymouth etc. allowing for the Dorset traffic. Beautiful scenery. Well presented, traditional cottage. Quiet. Thoughtful touches such as tea, coffee and croissants left. Off street parking. To be expected for thiRead mores area of the coast, the house is on a reasonably steep hill. Hide

Read moreext-stroke-width: 0px; text-decoration-style: initial; text-decoration-color: initial">The cottage is very nice and tastefully decorated, and nothing is missing. On arrival, teabags, coffee, bread, margarine and biscuits were ready for us. That was a nice surprise, so we immediately felt welcome. The housekeepers were very friendly and helpful - we locked ourselves out once, and they were there in a short time and let us in again. The house was very clean and comfortable. We were excited.

We love old, quirky cottages and this one fitted the bill. It was cosy and welcoming. Best of all the bed was comfortable so we could enjoy a good night's sleep after a busy day.
