This charming property has been built and developed in a sustainable way using a number of local and natural materials and offers a great escape for guests looking to explore this lovely area.

Solid cob walls, a twisting staircase, and a whole host of pretty nooks make this barn-conversion annexe a wonderfully characterful place to enjoy a couples’ break along with up to two dogs. Situated on a small organic farm, the location is absolutely perfect for endless walkies on the nearby Jurassic Coast, with a rural sanctuary to retreat to at the end of the day.

Upon arrival, it is clear that a huge amount of care and attention has been put into creating a stylish property which is sympathetic to the rural setting. Make yourselves at home in the light-filled lounge where your beloved pups can curl up on the rug whilst you enjoy a film or simply catch up with a good book. The kitchenette area is set off to one side, with a handmade spiral staircase leading up to the romantic bedroom where the super king-size bed and a quiet seating area sit under exposed wooden beams. Outside, enjoy al fresco dining on the enclosed patio to the side of the property, where there is space for your dogs to stretch their legs whilst you relax over evening drinks or a morning coffee.

Surrounded by attractive countryside, this farmland property is a wonderful choice if you are looking to escape the stresses of daily life and enjoy the simple pleasures of leisurely walks and days spent by the sea. It is perfectly possible to walk on footpaths to the seaside village of Charmouth, 2.5 miles away, where you will find a thriving and welcoming coastal community with a choice of dog-friendly places to eat. The beach is a popular spot for fossil hunters and is open to dogs all year round, though they must be kept on leads from 1st April to the end of October.

Stunning location, perfect for relaxing, reading and watching nature; birds and bats. Char cider barn welcomed us with comfort and quiet. Had everything we needed in the small but imaginatively set out kitchen. The bedroom is the most outstanding feature the beamed room offered space, comfort and wonderful views.

Char Cider Barn was a lovely property, well furnished tastefully and comfortable. Upstairs was very spacious and the bathrooms were ideal - a good shower and nice bath. It was delightfully remote and we felt very relaxed and away from it all. Hilary, the owner was friendly and helpful. We would love to return in the future.

Char Cider Barn is a fantastic property away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. It's a beautiful cottage with lots of local materials from the farm used in its construction. Locally there is lots to do and the beaches are only a few miles away.

We had a lovely stay at this cottage despite the changeable weather! Perfect base for walks straight from the door or a short drive to the coast and the wonderful South West costal path. Relaxing and very comfortable. The owner is so friendly and welcoming, on hand if needed but not intrusive at all.
