The West Country region
Charmouth is a relatively peaceful place offering seaside facilities without the razzmatazz of the big resorts. The village has two grocery shops, a butchers, a newsagents/general store, a gift shop, a chemist, a camping and leisure store, two fossil shops, three cafes and two public houses. There is also a large playing field with tennis courts, bowls and putting greens. Between Charmouth and Lyme Regis is The Lyme Regis Golf Course.
The beach has a mix of pebbles and sand. The coastal hills rise steeply on either side of the meandering River Char with Stonebarrow Hill to the east and Black Venn to the west. About a mile to the east beyond Stonebarrow Hill is Golden Cap, rising almost vertically from the beach to 617 feet. The flat topped hill is the highest point on the south coast and is part of the National Trust's Golden Cap Estate, which also includes Stonebarrow Hill. There is vehicular access to the top of Stonebarrow with staggering views of Lyme Bay with Portland in the east and Start Point to the far west.
To the west, two miles by beach and three miles by road is the charming and famous town of Lyme Regis. The towns narrow streets are lined with many listed buildings and delightful shops with a profusion of art, crafts, books, antiques and specialist food shops and eateries. The old Town Mill is a restored, working watermill with a cafe, gallery and pottery and is well worth a visit. At the western end of the town is 'The Cobb' an ancient harbour wall that in recent times has become renowned as the place from which 'The French Lieutenants Woman' (played by Meryl Streep in the film of John Fowles' novel) looked longingly out to sea! From the harbour you can take boat trips for sight-seeing or mackerel fishing. In particular, look out for the Frances Jane, 'the prettiest boat in the harbour' and her skipper 'Doug the Hat'.
