Dorset Diamond


Just 15 minutes’ walk from the famous fossil beach and village at Charmouth, this family run park on the beautiful Jurassic coast, has been awarded the David Bellamy Silver Award for Conservation and offers you the ideal base for your Dorset holiday. Set on a hillside between Bridport and Lyme Regis, this is Thomas Hardy country, with rolling hills, thatched cottages and pretty harbours and beaches.

For fossil hunters the coastline is a paradise, and Weymouth, Poole, Exeter and Bournemouth are all within easy reach. The surrounding area has a host of tourist attractions including shops, harbour side café’s and restaurants, while the park offers all the facilities you need to make the most of your holiday, whatever the weather. Weymouth and Portland Harbour are just 22 miles away.

(N.B. Depending on the details provided by the manager/owner of this property the map may either show the exact location of the property, or simply the location of the village or town in which it is situated.)

At the mouth of the River Char in Dorset, this village overlooks the beautiful Lyme Bay. Built on a steep hill, it slopes down to a shingle and sand beach, which offers clean, safe swimming and occasionally good surf. The beach is divided into two by the river, which is sometimes damned to form a lagoon suitable for boating or watching the ducks and swans. However Charmouth is probably best-known for fossil-hunting. The first complete Ichyosaurus fossil was discovered here in 1811, and since then the cliffs have been a remarkable source of fossils from the Jurassic period. As a result, Charmouth is at the very heart of the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site. Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre acts as a visitor centre for the area, identifying fossils found in the region and holding guided fossil walks throughout the year.

The village has maintained a friendly, traditional feel, despite being a holiday destination since the 18th and 19th centuries, when its visitors included the novelist Jane Austen. It is just one mile to the east of the Regency town of Lyme Regis, and is well-positioned for exploring the Jurassic coastline as well as the glorious Dorset countryside. Exeter, Honiton, Lyme Regis, Bridport, Weymouth and Swanage are all within travelling distance.

Attractions in the area include: The Abbotsbury Swannery; fishing trips; The Donkey Sanctuary at Sidmouth; Pecorama, a model railway exhibition and gardens; Seaton Tramway; and Beer Quarry Caves.
