Lyme Regis, Dorset, England
The holiday cottages at Champernhayes, Dorset have been created from the conversion of the original farmhouse buildings, which date back to 1482. The traditional self catering cottages have country-style kitchens and are open plan, with a dining area, and comprehensively equipped.Each self catering cottage has its own private garden complete with patio, hardwood garden furniture and gas barbecue. The heated indoor swim spa and hot tub is available throughout the year. Excellent walks are literally right on your doorstep, along with the unspoilt Dorset/East Devon coastline, famous for its smuggling history, where you can stroll along the spectacular cliffs and seashore where the unique fossils abound.

A lovely, quiet, country location, with enclosed, dog friendly garden. The cottage was very well equipped and cosy. everything you will need is provided in the kitchen, including cleaning materials (which we took with us!) plus a lovely welcome pack. The cottage is decorated like a permanent residence, with lots of local interest pictures, lined curtains with blinds, magazines, books, a DVD library across the courtyard. Charmouth was the nearest pub and shop ten minutes away: The Royal Oak Sunday lunch is as good as the reports. The surrounding lanes were heaven for our dog.We were very central to local beaches and fossilling sites, and some of the less well known Country Housed and Gardens. On site help was unobtrusive and charming from Lindsay and Alan.
A site plan for download is planned which will be a great help for visitors who arrive in the dark. A very relaxing holiday!

Owl cottage is such a lovely little holiday home. It is a cute 2 bed home - perfect for our family (2 children 9 & 7) and 1 dog.
The kitchen is the most well stocked kitchen I have ever had in a holiday home - even washing powder!
Really lovely touches of the welcome gifts (milk, bread, biscuits and wine!) thank you :)
We made some great memories playing on the beach at Lyme Regis - the best sea side town I have ever been too. We fossiled, we rock pooled, we build sand castles lots of 'free' activities all within easy reach. We would recommend the George - local pub - good family food, but get there early as gets busy.
The high light of my children's holiday was swimming daily! They loved the pool and is perfect for a family to play in. The books, DVDs and games were also a lovely addition, to a most comfortable stay in a very pretty location.
So lovely to find a great pet friendly accommodation - thank you!
