An unspoilt village on Britain’s most beautiful coastline, Charmouth sits at the mouth of the River Char. Our selection of holiday cottages in Charmouth provide the ideal base from which to enjoy a Dorset short break and explore the Jurassic Coast.
Charmouth Beach is made up of a mixture of sand and pebble as well as more than its fair share of fossils. Budding palaeontologists can join guided fossil hunting walks to find a fossil of their own to take home.
Lyme Regis, just two miles down the coast, is a must-visit. If you’ve caught the fossil hunting bug, you’ll love the charming Lyme Regis Museum, where you can learn about 185 million years of history. Culture vultures can descend upon the Marine Theatre or the Town Mill for performances and art, while foodies can feast at the many restaurants.
