We are a group of 10 friends with a wealth of local knowledge. Our accommodation is individual properties set close to the Jurassic Coast between Lyme Regis & Bridport and inland to the rolling downs above Beaminster.
Each property is very different and between us we can offer peaceful hideaways, walking access to the sea, working farms, fishing lakes on site and stunning views from your window. Where possible we use own or local grown produce. The area is ideal for walking, from leisurely strolls to more challenging cross-country hiking. The ever changing scenery never fails to delight whatever time of year you visit.
Our beautiful area has been as featured in a television series, called Broadchurch, and the World Heritage Coastline looks great on TV but it's even better in real life!
West Dorset is a great place to relax and unwind and well known for its local food, it also offers a wide variety of arts and crafts and has a history going back to the Iron Age. Take a bracing walk along our stunning Jurassic coastline and enjoy the autumnal views from the rolling hills inland.
Savour a leisurely lunch, be organised and get some Christmas shopping done, visit our vintage scene, or places of interest (many open all year round, museums and galleries included), catch up with family or friends, lots to see and do, and always a warm welcome from all of us in the Countryside and Coastal group.
