Description

This comfortable, compact and welcoming property is perfect for couples looking for a romantic getaway and a great base for discovering the area. Situated on a small holiday complex just outside the coastal village of Charmouth, the beautiful 30-acre site includes two small lakes and a 4-star hotel which has a Café Bar, restaurant, crazy golf and Spa facilities open to non-residents. Located on the Jurassic Coastal Path diversion with access from the doorstep to more than 250 miles of wonderful coastal walks, the property is situated on the West Dorset/East Devon border, so you are ideally placed for touring both counties. A short distance away, the World Heritage site of Lyme Regis and its famous Cobb Harbour, bright boats, narrow streets and fossil-rich cliffs also boasts a good choice of shops, inns, restaurants and cafes. Sidmouth, Seaton and the old fishing village of Beer are a short drive away and there are many other attractions to discover including Pecorama, Beer Caves, Seaton Tramway, Crealy, Bicton Park, Burrows Farm Gardens, Killerton and Knightshayes Court. The Jurassic Coastal Bus stops at the bottom of the drive making it very convenient for journeys out without the car.

Stepping inside the beautifully presented accommodation, the open plan lounge/dining/sleeping area is compact, yet light and airy. There is a separate kitchen equipped with an electric hob and oven, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment, where you can prepare romantic meals for two. Enjoy a cup of coffee or a leisurely meal at the bistro-style dining table in the main living accommodation before settling down for a cosy evening in front of the Smart TV, or perhaps watch a DVD on the Blu ray player. Sleep in style in the elegant four-poster double bed, there is an easy fold back screen if more space is required and a good size built in wardrobe and a small chest of drawers nearby. Completing the accommodation is a light and bright shower room with WC.

Immediately outside the property is a small, shared open courtyard area with seats. There is also a shared lawn area with seating and a BBQ for enjoying al fresco meals, together with beautifully maintained shared gardens and two lakes for romantic strolls. Between May and September, guests are also invited to use the shared heated outdoor swimming pool. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic and to adhere to the current Government guidelines and restrictions in place, the on-site hotel will not be open to non-residents of the hotel in any capacity including the bar, restaurant and swimming pool. This is until further notice and is beyond the owner’s control.
