  • "A lovely property in a great location."

    Comfortable and well equipped. Some great walks in the area and two nice pubs in the village. Great location for days out to Chesil Beach, Lyme Regis and Cerne Abbas to name just a few places.

  • "Comfortable and well equipped cottage, situated in a quiet and peaceful location."

    Ideal for a couple seeking a relaxing break or holiday. Local shop, pubs and the beach at Seatown are easily accessible by a short walk, with the added advantage of having the lovely market town of Bridport and the neighbouring resorts of Charmouth and beautiful Lyme Regis all close by and all easily reached by a short drive. We will definitely use Fossil Cottage again.

  • "We absolutely loved this cottage."

    It was cosy and extremely well equipped. The owner had left us a lovely welcome basket which was a nice suprise and a lovely touch to our stay. Cottage was really clean, was great to have two bathrooms and nice to have the little garden to eat breakfast outside. Dining room was nice and bright with skylights. We had a really enjoyable stay and would 100% recommend!

About the location


Bridport 2 miles. Lyme Regis 7 miles. West Bay 4 miles.

The pretty village of Chideock (pronounced Chiddick) can be found straddling the main A35 road between Bridport and Honiton, in glorious West Dorset. Many of the quaint cottages lining the road are constructed of cob and the honey-coloured local sandstone. Lying within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the area has plenty of lovely walks, whilst just 1 mile away is Dorset's Jurassic Coast, famed for its fossils and ease of finding them, where a walk along the coastal path affords spectacular views across the sparkling waters of Lyme Bay towards Portland, Chisel beach and the Devon coast. A short drive east takes you to the ancient rope-making town of Bridport, and the harbour at West Bay, or venture west to visit the picturesque seaside resort of Lyme Regis. An excellent holiday base from which to explore this scenic area.
