About Us

Smiths Farm is located between Charmouth & Lyme Regis (directly off the A35) in a tranquil rural location within a Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The property is surrounded by open farmland and is within 5 minutes drive of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast where the quiet coastal village of Charmouth and the small historic town of Lyme Regis are located - both world famous for fossil hunting as well as having excellent beaches. The market town of Axminster lies approximately 4 miles to the west, with its main line railway connection to Waterloo. There are plenty of footpaths to walk; large areas of land around Charmouth and Lyme Regis are owned by the National Trust providing open access to the public. The property has far reaching rural views and is accessed by its own private drive.

The two semi-detached holiday cottages have recently been created from the conversion of a 200 year old flint barn, the barn has traditional 18" thick flint walls under a natural slate roof. Both cottages have 'Economy 7' night storage central heating and are double glazed throughout.

Each of the properties overlook the Char valley and have outstanding, far reaching views to beautiful rolling Dorset farmland, woodland, hills and the two Iron Age hill-forts of Lamberts and Coneys castles. The surrounding woods & farmland are home to a wide variety of wildlife including deer, badgers, foxes and buzzards.

The cottages are in a very safe and secure location being at the end of a private access lane shared only with the adjacent farmhouse (not a working farm). The nearest shops and public houses are approximately 5 minutes drive away in Charmouth whilst a Tesco Supermarket is located 4 miles away in Axminster.

The cottages, which were converted in 2005, are newly decorated and furnished throughout. The Smithy is rated as 3 STAR standard, while the larger Stables is rated 4 STAR by Visit Britain.
