Description from manager

Description

Albury House is a thatched 17th century cottage in a prominent position within Charmouth. Bursting with character and style, think less shabby-chic, more boutique. It is a short walk down to the beach, perfect for rock-pooling and fossil-hunting. Once you've arrived, you simply won't want to leave.

Ground Floor:

Entrance into the hallway which opens out into the Living Room.

The Living Room with its warm contemporary feel has two large sofas and a love seat in front of the wood burning stove. The large LCD TV has SKY and a Blu-ray player.

Beyond, the Snug Area has two plump armchairs to sink into whilst whiling an afternoon away reading. This TV Room has a sofa in front of a large LCD TV with SKY, Blu-ray player and an Xbox 360 with multiple controllers and games. Selection of books, Blu-rays and DVDs, games and children's toys available. Please note that the fireplace in this room is ornamental.

The Conservatory is beautiful in summer

The Conservatory is beautiful in summer when the ancient grape vine is in full growth. There is a table at one end with seating for five. At the other end there is a Belfast sink, washing machine and tumble dryer. Access into the garden makes this a perfect spot to leave your flip flops, buckets and spades after a lovely day at the beach.

The table extends to seat ten comfortably. Please note that there is a step between the country kitchen end with the farmhouse table and AGA and the working area of the kitchen which includes worktop space and the electric oven and gas hob. At the end of this room there is a spiral staircase which leads to the first floor snug area beyond the main bathroom.

A separate Study provides a quiet room away from it all with a desk and chair. This room is where the wifi is set up so is perfect for anyone studying or needing to be in touch with the office.

Location description from manager

The England region

West Dorset is a fabulous location for foodies. Mark Hix's Oyster and Fish House in Lyme Regis, the highly acclaimed Hive Beach Café in Burton Bradstock and its equally fabulous sister café The Watch House Café in West Bay as well as Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's River Cottage Canteen and Deli in nearby Axminster and the River Cottage HQ just outside Axminster are all within a short drive of Albury House. Why not check out the cookery courses at River Cottage HQ, we've heard fabulous things about them.

Charmouth

This luxury home away from home enjoys a prominent position on the main road through Charmouth. The seaside village offers a choice of pubs, gift boutiques, a well-stocked local shop and bakery. A stunning setting along the Jurassic coast families can go fossil hunting or rock pooling, whilst the energetic can take advantage of this fabulous walking region. All within a short stroll of Albury House's doorstep.

The popular but unspoilt Lyme Regis is a ten minute drive from the cottage which offers a sandy beach, fishing trips, art and music festivals and its iconic Cobb and harbour. Make sure you visit the Town Mill Bakery, it's a firm favourite.

“If you are a family group, book it!”

Reviewed 12 Nov 2015

We are a family group of 13, ranging in age from 6 months to 66 years. This cottage is fabulous (a 400 year old thatched cottage would be hard to beat!) one of the best self-catering properties we've come across. It is wonderfully equipped, with ample crockery, kitchen equipment, etc and with 4 out of 5 bedrooms being ensuite. The 7 year old twins were very impressed with this facility! The large garden contains a trampoline, table-tennis table, hammock, pétanque area, loungers, etc, etc. Indoors, there are plenty of games for children and adults, including X-box consoles and DVDs. The cottage has been very sympathetically modernised, without losing the joy of being in a hundreds-year old property. The children liked that it was an easy walk to the coast, and for older groups, there are plenty of walks from the cottage. A delicious cake greeted us on arrival, and we can not recommend this property highly enough. Thank you to all responsible for a delightful week
