The West Country region

The West Country is well known for its outstanding beaches, beautiful countryside and mild climate. Dorset is however often overlooked in favour of its bigger more commercialised neighbours Devon and Cornwall. This trend has allowed Dorset to develop at a slower pace and retain its charm, offering the quintessential English Seaside experience.

Base yourself in the West of Dorset and you will be able to enjoy the best the county has to offer, the Stunning Jurassic Coast, Weymouth home to the Olympic Sailing, Market Towns, Sleepy Villages and the stunning Countryside made famous by Thomas Hardy. Pop over the border into Devon and follow the coast along to Exeter visiting the charming fishing villages and Victorian resorts like Sidmouth enroute.


Charmouth is a historic village with over 30 listed buildings set in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Known as 'The Gateway to the Jurassic Coast' it's beach is world famous for Fossil hunting and the Heritage Coast Centre on the beach has a full programme of activities and fossil hunting walks for all ages.

The village has Tennis Courts,a Bowling Green and a safe playground surrounded by 12 acres of playing fields.

A really good selection of shops cater for all needs and include a grocers which is open untill 9pm daily.

Close by and visable across the bay is the historic town of Lyme Regis offering quirky shops, great restaurants and a sandy beach.Heading East the market town of Bridport has a weekly street market and a good selection of individual shops and restaurants.

River Cottage HQ in Axminster is also a short drive away.

For the more active there are some excellent golf courses. Both Lyme Regis and Bridport Gold Clubs are within a few minutes drive and offer spectacular scenery aswell as great golf. Fishing trips leave daily from Lyme Regis and Horse Riding in the unspoilt countryside is a delight.Probably best of all bring your walking boots and head off along the coastal path or follow the river Char inland through the meadows.

"Beautiful holiday cottage!"

We have just come home from a long weekend in Charmouth. I found The Hideaway by chance & I'm so pleased I did! It is charming. Tucked away from the road but easy walking distance to the beach & … More

"Perfect for a relaxing break"

We had a lovely little holiday and stayed at the Hideaway for just 3 nights (could have stayed longer). The owner was very flexible and allowed us to arrive on the Tuesday and leave on the Friday. On arriving at the house we immediately felt at home. It is clean and furnished beautifully and has everything you need for your stay. We have a very inquisitive 1 year old and the small picket fence all the way round the front of the garden and property mean't we could relax, let him play outside and not worry about him running off. It is located within a 2 minute walk of the beach which was great for entertaining my son and it is close to Lyme Regis for days out. We went to Weymouth Sea life centre which was a 45 minute drive. I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet relaxing break with the option to go to places further afield for days out.

I stayed at The Hideaway at the beginning of August with my husband and teenage son. We loved its location tucked away at the bottom of a driveaway off the beach road. Both Charmouth High St and the… More

Many thanks for your positive review.
Previous guests have had no issue with the disposal of their rubbish but I will take your comments on board regarding the inclusion of the charge into the rental rate.
Just to clarify, the nominal £10 deduction from your deposit was not just for the disposal of your rubbish but a contribution towards your breakages.
I am so pleased you enjoyed your week in our little house

"The Hideaway is an absolute gem"

This is the best accommodation I have ever seen. This property is beautiful. Everything you need is available, extremely clean, and a few minutes walk to the beach. Me and my friend had the best weekend ever, and was totally relaxed. I would highly recommend this property and will definitely be returning.

"Relaxing weekend in beautifully appointed property"

The property was very well appointed, and ideal for our party of 3 adults. Good position within easy walking distance of both the village and its amenities and the beach.
Try the bakery in the village - wonderful!

Many thanks for your positive review.
We are so lucky to have such a good range of local shops within a few minutes walk, in particular the Village Bakery which is indeed amazing
