Gateway to the Jurassic Coast
The West Dorset village of Charmouth is at the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coastline. One mile to the east of the Regency town of Lyme Regis, Charmouth has its own distinct identity and is renowned worldwide for its fossil beaches.
It’s not just the fossils that make Charmouth such an attractive holiday destination. The beach is safe for children of all ages as it shelves very gently and low tide reveals wide expanses of sand and many rock pools.
Away from beach there are spectacular cliff and inland walks surrounding the village as well as the glorious West Dorset Countryside.
The village itself is home to just less than two thousand people and is a thriving community all year round.
