Cottage
The cottage is approximately 400 years old, with lots of character and has been sympathetically decorated and furnished with the Master Bedroom (with a memory foam mattress) being en-suite, a second bedroom, (with a memory foam mattress) separate toilet and bathroom are found on the ground floor. The cottage has private car parking, a new decking area is at the back of the cottage which catches the sun a lovely place to spend the evening. The cottage is just a 5 minute walk from the beach, local amenities (pubs, cafe, shops etc) are on the doorstep. Perfect for beach or walking holidays. Joan's cottage is pet friendly (ONE well behaved dog please) as I know they are part of your family. Please remember to add our Pet Fee if bringing your pet. Thank You :-)...The cottage is approximately 400 years old, with lots of character and has been sympathetically decorated and furnished with the Master Bedroom (with a memory foam mattress) being en-suite, a second bedroom, (with a memory foam mattress) separate toilet and bathroom are found on the ground floor.

Interaction with guests
I live in Charmouth so I am only a couple of minutes away should guests need assistance/help. I give guests a ring the morning after they arrive to make sure they are happy with everything and if they have any questions. There is a lockbox for guests to obtain the key when it suits them (any time after 4.00pm)

About the neighbourhood
Our cottage is located on Britain's Most Beautiful Coastline. Charmouth and the Jurassic Coast contain some of the most beautiful and accessible coastline in the UK. In just three hours from London or Birmingham you reach the spectacular fossil rich beaches, the rolling hills, and the fabulous un-spoilt countryside. It is no coincidence that the area is England's only UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site, and also an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The beach between Charmouth and Lyme Regis is the only UK entry in the National Geographic 21 Best Beaches in the World 2017. But it's not just beaches and fossils, there are miles of beautiful countryside perfect for exploring.
Getting around
A local bus route X51 and X53 bus routes. A bus timetable is available in the house manual.
