Britain's most beautiful coastline
Charmouth and the Jurassic Coast contain some of the most beautiful and accessible coastline in the UK. In just three hours from London or Birmingham you reach the spectacular fossil rich beaches, the rolling hills, and the fabulous unspoilt countryside.
It is no coincidence that the area is England's only UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site, and also an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The beach between Charmouth and Lyme Regis is the only UK entry in the National Geographic 21 Best Beaches in the World 2017. But it's not just beaches and fossils, there are miles of beautiful countryside, with much managed by the National Trust. Country walks, the South West Coast Path, country pubs and thatched cottages will remind you why the area was a favourite with literary greats such as Jane Austen and Thomas Hardy. So why not come and visit Charmouth and unspoilt West Dorset.
