Property code: SHREA

This pretty red-brick cottage accommodates a group of eight sleeping across four bedrooms, and is a comfortable home away from home for your coastal getaway. There are three bathrooms to the four bedrooms (including one en-suite, and a wet room), meaning no hassle over bathroom queues. When you’re back from a day at the beach – a mere 0.5-mile stroll away – step inside, put towels and swimming costumes straight into the washer/dryer, and feel refreshed with a hot shower. The amenities of Charmouth village are also close at hand, with shops, an open-air market, and a family-friendly pub all less than 0.5 miles from the doorstep.

After a long day of walking, exploring, and paddling in the waves, the comfy sofas of the lounge/diner will look more inviting than ever. Take a seat and put your feet up, before discussing whose turn it is to make dinner. The bright kitchen has been smartly outfitted and has everything you need to make a tasty meal for a large group, including a dishwasher to take away the hassle of washing up after eight people. If the sun is shining, dine alfresco on the private patio, or simply open the French doors while you sit around the dining table and tuck in. Toast to more fun days ahead, and then set to planning them, sharing ideas for what you want to do or see next. Complete a cosy night in with a favourite film on the TV/DVD. When you’re ready for a good night’s sleep, head either along the corridor to the ground floor bedroom, or upstairs to the remaining three. Please do mind your head in the king-size bedroom upstairs, as it features a low sloping ceiling. You’ll sleep deeply after all the sea air and excitement, and wake up ready to do it all over again. Additional outdoor facilities, including an outdoor heated swimming pool (opening times and dates apply), are shared with the neighbouring holiday park.

The Jurassic Coast is a fantastic place for finding fossils, and Charmouth is famously one of the best beaches to go looking. In between ice creams and sandcastles, join a guided fossil walk on the beach, and take the opportunity to hunt for a piece of geological history. Around the coast in the seaside town of Lyme Regis (3 miles), there are interesting local attractions for whiling away a leisurely afternoon: two museums, the Town Mill, and the Marine Aquarium. Adults and children alike will be charmed by the animals at Axe Valley Wildlife Park (6.5 miles), a self-proclaimed ‘small zoo’. There’s even a range of animal experiences, a unique way to celebrate a special occasion for someone in your party.

The accommodation was comfortable and roomy, plenty big enough for the eight of us. The kids loved the pool and playpark, the beach is an easy walk away. Fossil-hunting was very popular too!

The cottage was plenty big enough for us and set on a great safe site with excellent play park and pool. The beds were comfy. There was ample parking and the Clubhouse had a well stocked bar, tasty food and entertainment which appealed. However we found there was a lack of hooks, rails or shelving in the bathrooms. The pool times were also very resRead moretricted which was a shame for the kids. Hide
