Things to do in Charmouth

Charmouth is a very special and unique coastal village, and a UNESCO listed world heritage site. The village also enjoyed a colourful history, and some notable visitors including Catherine of Aragon and Jane Austen The beach is safe for kids to play in the water and the area is heaving with fossils and exciting rock pools.

-Fossil Hunting Walks: are a hugely popular attraction both with locals and visitors alike. Fossil centre wardens give a brief and informative talk before the tour begins, with a fascinating journey that heads out onto the beach for 2 hours. Kids and adults will learn how to properly collect fossils and what they all mean. Complementing the tours, the Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre is a conservatory establishment that educates and facilitates safe and proper collection of fossils from the surrounding beaches. There are interactive displays, loads of information for kids and students and hands-on exhibits at the centre.

-Mapperton House and Gardens is a multi-terraced garden attraction that sweeps out in front of an historic Tudor House that dates back to the 1600s. There are summer houses, fishponds, a fountain court, wild garden, orangery, Italianate garden and a licensed café.

-The East Beach is a popular choice for families who want to spend the day by the seaside. There are less pebbles here than on some of the other beaches and a quaint beach café serving refreshments.

It was a brilliant break in a lovely location, the cottage is in an amazing location, has everything you need in it, and is just 5 mins walk to the beach. I can’t recommend it enough and will definitely go back.

Beautiful house and furnished very well. A warm and cosy home from home

5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay at the Old Monmouth. The house is stunning. There were 6 adults and 2 small children and there was plenty of room for us to spread out and relax. I especially liked sitting in the window seats and also by the log burner in the second sitting room, it was so cosy and warm. The rooms were beautiful and all ensuite accept for the twin but that was fine for the children. There was a separate family bathroom for the children to use anyway. The kitchen in the cellar is absolutely fantastic with everything you could possibly need. It has a large table to sit around and also another room next door with an even bigger table in! We found the two washing machines very handy during our stay. I also noticed how every single sink in the house had some hand wash and a towel next to it, so convenient. There were plenty of books and games to use. It's just a short walk into the centre, the location is fantastic. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. They gave us a quick tour when we arrived. I cannot recommend this place enough and we wouldn't hesitate about coming back.
