Charmouth

One of the many gateways to the Jurassic Coast, Charmouth is a bustling coastal village set on the Heritage Coast and is one of the most popular places to go fossiling. Although being a popular tourist destination Charmouth has kept its friendly village feel and is an ideal location for a traditional family holiday.

Miss Hamshere

A lovely seaside spot. There are several cafes on the front serving up basic but good value food, and most importantly ice cream. Good parking. The dunes behind the beach make for excellent kite flying. You can enjoy a walk all the way down the beach to Lyme Regis when the tide is right, and the fossil hunting is just amazing - you can't help but come back with pocketfuls of ammonites and other prehistoric goodies.

Has a handy Monday market

Very close to the cottage (at the bottom of Stone Barrow Lane) there is a Monday market that sells a wide range of goods from fresh meats, breads, Thai food, tools, pet foods, clothing etc.
