The Street Charmouth
Generous room sizes
The modest frontage of The Rosery belies its hidden charms. Generous room sizes, original features, high ceilings and a secluded garden which curls around neighbouring cottages make it more a small Victorian villa than a simple cottage. Just a few minutes' walk takes you to the convenient local shops, the shore, the bus-stop or one of the pubs.
It would be hard to find a better setting than Charmouth. In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is part of the World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast and is famous for its fossils. See how much goes on in this friendly village and what it looks like on www.charmouth.org.
