The West Country region
Home to England's first World Heritage Site, the Jurassic Coast's outstanding geology represents 185 million years of Earth history. The whole 95 miles is open and spectacular, a walker's paradise to explore the sandy beaches, bays, coves and headlands, the changing geology determines and incredible variety of bird, plant and sea life.
Dorset has less rainfall than Devon or Cornwall and the summer swimming is excellent. The water is clean and the beaches varied: reefs and shale ledges for snorkelers, safe sandy beaches for children at Studland, Swanage and Weymouth plus great swathe of shingle that makes up the famous Chesil Bank.
Over half the county has been designated an Area of Outstanding Beauty and there are many places to visit from the famous Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door arch to fossil hunting at Charmouth and Lyme Regis, to viewing the Roman artefacts in Dorchester and climbing to the top of the majestic Maiden Castle.
The wide and varied activities on offer in the county include sailing, surfing, coasteering, rock climbing, horse riding and golf. The choice of beaches in Dorset also offer every thing from the 'Kiss Me Quick' resorts to the unspoilt, deserted remote bays and coves, most are dog friendly all year round.
The resort towns of Swanage, Weymouth and Lyme Regis offering great family entertainment plus many festivals and county shows including The Great Steam Fair, the Dorset County Show and Bestival at Lulworth Castle. Dorset has also attracted many famous chefs and fine dining can now be had at the Michelin star restaurant Sienna in Dorchester, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage or Mark Hix's Oyster & Fish House. Getting to Dorset is quick and easy. Whether by train or car getting here is easy and just 2.5 hours from London and the home counties.
Overlooking Lyme Bay, Charmouth, with it's ancient coastline of dramatic cliffs, is the gateway to the Jurassic Coast. The village has a friendly, traditional feel and the beach is ideal for families with a mix of sand and pebbles, safe swimming, fossils and occasionally good surf. Jane Austen and Catherine of Aragon were just two of Charmouth's many famous frequent visitors. Dorset Coastal Cottages can offer over 8 unique properties in this scenic village, only 10 minutes drive from popular Lyme Regis, though with plenty of activities, two pubs, restaurants and cafes you may find you don't want to leave!

"Excellent rental cottage"
We stayed at the Copper Beech in July 2013 and can thoroughly recommend it. The cottage is located on the road up to Stonebarrow Hill, about 10 minutes walk into Charmouth village and about the same distance to Charmouth beach via the shortcut along the footpath.
We found the cottage to be entirely satisfactory and as described in the advertisement. It was clean and airy with a beautiful garden suitable for dining outside.
We had previously attempted to book the Jurassic Coast Beach House, likewise in Charmouth, but when the owner of this property found out that we were travelling with small children, we were initially discouraged from coming ("no cot available") and then told that the property would not be available ("housekeeper away in Scotland that week(!)"), therefore it was refreshing to find that the Copper Beech welcomed children and indeed its open-plan, single floor layout is ideal for families with children. In short we scrutinised many rental properties in Charmouth and this was the best we could find.
We briefly met the pleasant and friendly owner of the property who explained something of the history of the buildings in the area.
We would not hesitate in booking this property again if we were to stay in the Charmouth area again in the future.
