Things to do

-Outdoor activities: Walking is a popular outdoor activity in this part of the country. Visitors staying in Hawkchurch holiday accommodation can enjoy easy access to the South West Coast Path from Lyme Regis. An exceptional and challenging walk along the trail from Lyme Regis to Seaton takes visitors through a wide range of coastal terrain and runs right through the heart of the Jurassic Coast. Other walks are also available along the coast for walkers of all ability levels.

-Golf: The stunning Lyme Regis Golf Club is a short drive south of Hawkchurch. Offering 18 holes stretched out over fairways with incredible views of the sea, the club caters to players with a handicap certificate on weekdays and Sunday afternoons. Windwhistle Golf Club in Chard is also very close. Windwhistle offers 18 holes and unrestricted access for visitors.

-Beaches: The heart of the Jurassic Coast is just a few miles from Hawkchurch holiday cottages. The resort town of Lyme Regis enjoys direct access to four separate beaches. Town Beach is best suited for visitors, as it features sand imported from France and lots of cafés. Church Beach also appeals to tourists. The other beaches, Back Beach and Monmouth Beach, are best admired at a distance.

-Family attractions: Family friendly attractions in the area include the Seaton Tramway, which makes for a wonderful day out. For animal lovers, however, the Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium is a must. Kids are welcome to feed the mullet and hold starfish. The Ferne Animal Sanctuary in Chard is another excellent place to take the family, full of splendid walking trails and home to a number of animals.

-Historic attractions: The Ford Abbey House and its gardens comprise one of the best historical attractions in the region. The Grade-I listed building has remained largely unchanged since the 18th century and features amazing architectural details. History buffs will also appreciate the museums at Chard and Lyme Regis. Both offer insight into the history of the respective towns through fascinating exhibits and artefacts.

It has everything you could possibly need for a stress free week. The kitchen is amazing and my kids loved the mezzanine den. I can't wait to come back. The wine and apple cake on arrival was most welcome. Thank you very much for a great week.

To find it you have to turn off just before the house into Lawn Vista (a small one-way street). Car parking is signposted on the right. The annex is 3 rooms - lounge/kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. It is very clean and modern. Everything is there that you would need, whether staying for a weekend or a week. Really good free wifi, 4K TV and Bluray player. there is a bookcase with a selection of DVDs, books and maps of the area. there is also a pile of leaflets about the area. You can easily walk into town in 5mins and although it is downhill its not very steep. There is a Tesco Express about 200 yards away. At the rear is 'The Byes' a really lovely park, for walking, cycling and dog walking. Great if you need to take the dog for a walk, but you will need a torch at night as there is no lighting. We stayed with our dog and it was great that apart from a few shops and one pub we were allowed to take her in everywhere (very different to where we live!). You are also only 10 mins from a Waitrose store on the edge of town to get supplies (well you're on holiday so treat yourself). I highly recommend this property.
