About the property


Champernhayes is set on a gentle southern slope of a West Dorset hillside, overlooking an almost unpopulated undulating valley, with views to the sea at Charmouth in the distance, and just over the hill lies the charming historic port of Lyme Regis. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within the UK’s only natural World Heritage Site, this coastline is renowned for its fascinating geology and fossils – known locally as the ‘Jurassic Coastline’ – a real life ‘Jurassic Park’! The smaller, single-storey cottages at Champernhayes have been created from the conversion of the original farmhouse buildings, which date back to 1482. These cottages, grouped around a central courtyard, have been awarded 5 stars by the Tourist Board, their highest grade for comfort, location, décor and facilities. The traditional country-style kitchens are open plan, with a dining area, and comprehensively equipped. Most bedrooms have their own en-suite bathrooms.

Cosy cottage lived by us all and the dog

  • 5 of 5

We decided to take an Autumn week away for some walking and relaxing; we found both. Champernhayes is surrounded by lovely countryside walks and dog friendly beaches. Everyday we planned somewhere different to explore with a place to eat good food at the end !

We enjoyed beautiful crisp sunny weather but we were still glad to come back to the pleasure of the cottage log burner each evening.

The cottage was warm and cosy and was well equipped to cook full meals. It had a dishwasher which saved anyone washing up and a washer dryer so we could wash and dry out our muddy clothing.

We spent a few hours relaxing our aching muscles in the swimming pool.

We will definitely visit champernhayes again as it seems what ever the weather there are things to do and fun to be had. We have booked the farmhouse for January family gathering and really can't wait to revisit the lovely places we found.

Thank you to the staff who were helpful and must work very hard to keep the cottage and grounds so lovely.
