Jurassic Coast Cottages

 

Scenic Seaside Holidays on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset

Find some beautiful Jurassic Coast holiday cottages in the little seaside villages along Dorset’s 155km panoramic coast from Lyme Regis in the west to Old Harry’s Rocks near Swanage in the east - all of it walkable on the glorious South West Coast Path. As a result of sea change and the Ice-Age, this stretch of the south coast tells the story of the area which is a designated a World Heritage site. The whole Jurassic Coast landscape around the Devon and Dorset coast is a wonderland for budding archaeologists, or simply anyone interested in discovering fossils. It’s also a popular location for walking and seaside self-catering holidays on Dorset beaches such as Lyme Regis, Lulworth, Charmouth and Studland Bay.

From Lulworth to Lyme Regis: A 155km-long Beauty Spot

Lulworth Cove is full of amazing sites from Durdle Door, a striking cliff formation, to Lulworth Crumble which is well worth a visit on its own. Little Jurassic coastal villages such as Charmouth, Beer, Budleigh Salterton, Kimmeridge and Swanage offer enough day-trip delights to fill a fortnight’s holiday in a Jurassic Coast cottage on the East Devon or West Dorset coastline. Take a trip to the quaint seaside town of Lyme Regis and wander along The Cob, a massive harbour wall. Feel the sea-wind in your hair just as the ‘French Lieutenant’s Woman’ did all those years ago. 

To the East, the sea beneath the cliffs at Portland Island played host to Olympic sailors, while the cliffs have weathered the storms along the Channel for millions of years. A Jurassic Coast cottage is a popular choice for walking holidays mixing coast and countryside. The South West Coast Path, in particular, provides a stunning cliff-top view of the rocks and beaches below, with many a quaint tea-room or pub in which to rest tired legs to be found along its route. Head inland a mile or two from the coast for and discover a magical rural retreat or a farm cottage to book, surrounded by woods, fields and chuckling streams - yet still within easy reach for days on the beach.
