Fossil And The Cross Cottage

This lovely cottage is surrounded by a large garden and affords great coastal views between the mature trees and landscape. This converted stone-built gem is a marvellous holiday home in West Bexington for those looking for a relaxing seaside break and the opportunity of exploring this popular part of the Jurassic Coast.

The setting is wonderful, with designed gardens surrounding a complex of three holiday cottages – The Fossil and The Cross, Whispering Pines and Mimosa Cottage, all of which are well spaced with their own private garden areas in which to relax or play.

The Fossil and The Cross Cottage, with its two comfortable bedrooms and sociable living area with kitchen, sitting and dining area, is perfect for a small family or couple's break. From the lounge, in sunny weather you can open the patio doors and enjoy the patio area with table and chairs. In chilly weather snuggle up in the lounge, add some wood to the log burner and enjoy in a warming hot chocolate whilst reading a book or watching the TV.

The Fossil and The Cross is charming and full of character. You can relax off the beaten track to the sounds of birds rather than hearing traffic; in fact, the cottage is accessed via a private road and located in a peaceful and tranquil setting.

Pull on some wellingtons for a walk and with a short hop and skip across two fields you will find yourself directly on a stretch of the world-famous Chesil Beach. This stretch of beach is frequented by fishermen and you will often see them sitting under their multi coloured little tents, it's also a haven for walkers and sun worshippers alike.

A little tea room is within walking distance following the path across the field, ideal for some refreshments after an invigorating walk or just head home to your comfortable little cottage sheltered from the elements; kick off your wellies and warm your feet up by the log burner.

Hop in the car and just a few minutes away you will find beautiful West Bay cliffs with beaches stretching to both sides. Going further along to the east is the tallest point on the South coast – Golden cap offering views to the isle of Portland to one side and Devon to the other. Lyme Regis and Charmouth are not too far away if you fancy fossil hunting, or enjoying some seaside fish and chips.

Come and enjoy time away from your busy life at The Fossil and The Cross and have a relaxing Jurassic coast stay.

All ground floor. Two bedrooms: 1 x double, 1 x twin single. Bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with open fire.
