  • "Lovely warm, comfortable cottage."

    Well provided for in terms of amenities. Garden had a sea view when it wasn't raining and the garden room was a lovely place to chill. Location was very convenient with short walk to the beach and into the village for the shops two pubs and really excellent chip shop. The parking outside the cottage wasn't difficult and the road was quiet at night

  • "The property is fantastic and very well equipped."

    A couple of things though we thought need looking at were: the toilet seat in the downstairs loo as it needs tightening and the handbasin taps in the bathroom currently need an extra quarter turn after thinking they were shut off, otherwise they were still running. Also I bought Scrabble and I hope you don't mind that we left it in the property as there were no games other than a pack of cards, and a puzzle, which we felt was unusual. And we only found the 2024 tide book on the penultimate day as it was tucked amongst the general books. Knowing it was available would have made things a tad easier. As I said though, fantastic house and garden. Would absolutely stay again!

  • "We loved Thatched Cottage and would happily revisit in the future, the decor and facilities were lovely and of a high quality, the beds and crisp white linens were comfortable and greatly appreciated after a day smashing things on the beach!"

    We couldn't find instructions for either the cooker or the washing machine it would make things easier if these could be supplied.

    Dear Catherine, Thank you for your feedback - it is good to hear that you enjoyed staying in Thatched Cottage as we have gone to great effort to make it as welcoming as we can. I agree that instructions would help for both the cooker and washing machine and will make a point of organising something that will, I hope, help clarify how to work them. Best wishes, Nick.

  • "Lovely cottage with good quality furniture and equipment."

    Beds super comfy. Conservatory was lovely in the sunshine. Heating wasn't on when we arrived and on a cold weekend we had to keep boosting it manually. Given that it is dog friendly a couple of extra throws in the lounge would be welcome and reduce worry over white sofa!! Best welcome pack EVER!!!!

  • "We had a lovely stay at Thatched Cottage in Charmouth."

    Even though it was on the main road that runs through Charmouth it was very peaceful. The garden was nicely enclosed which is great for people with 'normal' dogs but if you have a dog like ours, who climbs like a cat, the raised area in the corner is a problem! It would have been nice to have mirrors in the bedrooms for hair drying etc. but overall everything was provided for. The downside for us was the rubbish collection. The rubbish from previous tenants was still in the seagull sack and the bin in the back yard. Overall we had a lovely stay and would recommend the cottage to family and friends.

  • "Lovely cottage and garden and great location (despite the steep hill to the village centre!"

    ) Would recommend an outside light to garden as steps difficult and dangerous at night. Noticed when we were leaving rain leaking in through garden door. We had a lovely time here and thankyou for the welcome pack (unexpected treat) and guest guide which was very useful.

  • "The Thatched Cottage is a lovely, clean and well maintained comfortable cottage, with a pretty and very sunny garden."

    The on street parking was never a problem for us all. Charmouth is a scenic and unspoilt little town. Dogs are allowed on the east side of the lovely beach all year which was a great bonus in September. The shops are good and the food in the Royal Oak pub was delicious. We can definitely recommend this lovely, spacious cottage with a delightful sun room overlooking the private garden. The only negative for us was that we did find the road at the front rather noisy and although it's only a short walk to the beach, pubs etc, the cottage is at the top of quite a steep hill on return! Thank you to the owner for a really fabulous holiday, the weather was fantastic and we appreciated our lovely welcome gifts. Charmouth is most definitely worth a visit.

  • "We had a lovely week at Thatched cottage."

    The welcome gifts were a really pleasant surprise, Thank you. The house has been really thoughtfully presented, is well equipped and has a lot of character. The garden is a sun trap and a great place to hang out. Our only slight gripe was the mattress in the master bedroom dipped a bit in the middle, so might need replacing at some point.We had no issues with parking both our cars on the street outside the house. We had a great meal at the George in Chideock, The kids recommended the fish and chips from the village and the bakery was brilliant for fantastic bread, scones, crab sandwiches and pasties!

  • "We all had an enjoyable week staying at the property and appreciated the welcome gift bag!"

    The conservatory and garden were well used and we even saw deer on the field behind the property. The beds were very comfy too. Mirrors in the bedrooms are greatly needed!!! We had no way of drying/styling our hair in view, this was a problem with two teenager daughters and two other women in the group. Another must is hanging rails for clothes, none of us ended up unpacking our clothes properly as there were only coat hooks and hàngers in the rooms which seemed a bit too basic to be honest. There were also quite a few moths which might need looking into. Overall Thatched Cottage was a clean and well stocked for cleaning products etc cottage and the kitchen had all the things we needed and more making it very comfortable.

    Thank you for your comments which we will pass onto the owner for consideration. We hope you enjoyed your holiday,. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

The property

Thatched Cottage has a great deal of period charm, with a beautiful, secluded garden, it sits on a village road within a short walk of both the sea and local amenities.

It is a Grade II listed three-bedroomed house sleeping up to six guests.

Located in the coastal village of Charmouth, the property is ideally situated for those looking for a holiday on the UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coast.

The house has a comfortable sitting room to the front of the property with a gas wood burning effect stove which gives the room a homely warmth in the evening.

The kitchen has a farmhouse style to it with its Welsh dresser and views across the garden to the field beyond.

The farmhouse type table and chairs are welcoming and make for a relaxing space for the family to enjoy their meals together, whilst the fitted kitchen and appliances lend it a modernity.

A utility / cloakroom on the ground floor is particularly useful when coming in from the beach.

The staircase leads to a half landing where you will find the delightful conservatory, allowing you to sit quietly with your morning cup of tea or evening drink, looking out onto the pretty cottage garden and hillside beyond.

The family bathroom with its roll-top bath and separate shower is also on this floor.

Continue up the stairs to reach the three bedrooms: to the front of the house a king-size bedroom and a double bedroom, both of which enjoy views of the rural Dorset countryside.

You can look across the roof tops to the rural countryside.

The twin bedroom, at the rear of the house, has an intriguing stable door and looks out over the garden. The garden of Thatched Cottage is a real delight with its lawn, mature planting and shrubs that include roses, hydrangeas and honeysuckle.

A raised terrace with table and chairs, sheltered by a stone wall, is the perfect spot to sit and eat should weather allow, and to take in the views across Charmouth to the sea in the distance. Being so close to the coast, you’ll want to head out to explore the town and coast of Charmouth.

A short walk will take you to a good selection of local shops and village pubs, and the beaches.

Renowned for its fossils, you can learn about the areas rich geological history at the Heritage Centre on the seafront, before trying to find your own fossils or mermaid’s tears on the beaches.

Popular with walkers, the breathtaking South West coastal footpath passes through Charmouth and takes in sites of special interest such as Golden Cap and Stonebarrow.

Why not head to neighbouring Lyme Regis with its iconic Cobb harbour, where you will find a great choice of eateries and galleries as well as visitor attractions including Lyme Regis Aquarium, The Marine theatre and town museum.

Other places to visit for a family day out include Seaton with its mile long beach, Wetlands Centre and tramway, where you can hop onboard for a journey along the River Axe.

Other family favourites include the picturesque fishing village of Beer or the Axe Valley Animal Park, a compact zoo is home to a variety of animals from around the world.
