About Chesil Cottage

New. A quiet coastal getaway awaits at this seaside cottage set on a former farm, with stunning sea views over Chesil beach.

Big sea views are the focus of this rustic old cottage near Chesil beach. Surrounded by coast and countryside with the South West Coast Path on the doorstep, the cottage is a wonderful spot for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts to soak up the sea air.

A traditional stone cottage with two bedrooms upstairs (the master on the first floor and the second in the converted attic above) this cosy coastal getaway is ideal for couples.

On sunny days the lawned garden with outside seating area is great for alfresco lunches and dinners gazing over the Chesil coastline. On cooler days you can enjoy the views from inside instead, or relax in front of the pretty inglenook fireplace in the living room.

Broadchurch fans should recognise this section of the Jurassic coast (also an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), which is irresistible with its stories of smuggling and shipwrecks. The 18 miles of dog-friendly pebble-filled Chesil beach is great for strolling, and stopping at cafes to enjoy a bite to eat. Or explore the unique Fleet tidal lagoon, the largest in Britain, and home to Abbotsbury Swannery. Bridport, Dorchester and Weymouth are also close.

As Dorset is Hardy country, literature lovers will find Hardy connections everywhere. Explore his house, Max Gate, or picturebook-perfect Hardy’s Cottage where he grew up, both looked after by the National Trust. When you stay with us, the funds from your holiday go towards looking after places like these. For those keen for a little more adventure, how about a day on the waves with a boat trip along the Jurassic Coast from West Bay, or a closer look at the underwater world at Weymouth’s Sea Life Adventure Park?

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 Acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level through to 5 Acorns at the highest level. Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose, safe and clean. Running water and a WC are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities (details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage). Bedding, linen and towels are supplied (with a few exceptions, which is again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. Generally a 1 acorn cottage does not have wifi. Examples of a 1 acorn offer include Cartref, Wales and Rosedene, Worcestershire.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high sleeps to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 acorn cottages have wifi and, similar to a 1 Acorn cottage, the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic in their offer. All 2 (and higher) Acorn cottages supply bedding, linen and towels. Examples of a 2 acorn offer include Engine Cottage, Cornwall and High Hallgarth, Cumbria.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small sized kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage. Examples of a 3 acorn cottage include the Mustard Pot Cottage, Norfolk and Rose Cottage, Isle of Wight.

4 Acorn: these cottage have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally it is likely to have added comfort extras. The ratio of bathrooms to guests will be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers as opposed to over bath showers. Examples of a 4 Acorn offer include Portland House, Dorset and Stepper View, Cornwall.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage. This is the highest offer available. The furniture is of high standard, and has real comfort for modern living. Examples of a 5 Acorn cottage include The Old Rectory, South Wales and West Gate Lodge, Yorkshire.
