Marvelous Jurassic Coast Vacation
Southern England with its coastal splendor is a marvelous place for vacation. The Charmouth Lodge was a perfect place, very comfortable , close to the beach and has all the amenities. The village is quaint. We loved being able to walk to restaurants, pubs and fossil hunt. The small coastal villages are within 30 minutes to one hour away. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you for sharing your home with us.”
