Lovely clean accommodation. Only downside was the water was not fit for drinking. Had to buy bottled water as the water in the bathroom was brown in colour and we had to run the taps to try and clear it, so didnt want to risk the tap water in the kitchen.other than the water we had a really pleasant stay even though the weather was awful.

Lovely interior, as shown in the photos. Perfect location. Great access to fields and woods from the site for dog walks, and 8 mins drive to Lyme, 5 mins to Charmouth. Easy parking on-site. The host supplied some bottled water, but there were no signs up by the taps to say not drinking water, but I presume that was the case. I'd pack a hot water boRead morettle as there isn't central heating. Hide

Lovely well equipped cottage. Disappointed that it was further away from Chalmouth than we thought...a long hill climb to get back to Fernhill Heights! An up to date bus timetable would have been useful. But we had a lovely holiday and loved Lyme Regis. Shame that the hotel wasn't open to non residents.

We have just returned from a weeks holiday at Little Char. It was beautiful, very well equipped, clean and comfortable. The outside space was lovely to sit and enjoy a peaceful drink. Just a short drive to Lyme Regis which is very quaint with plenty of eating places. Would definitely recommend.

The property is an ideal size for 2 people, its in a peaceful setting and it looks as though its been newly refurbished, everything was clean. The location is great if you like walking, as you can start walks straight from the Fernhill grounds onto the South West coastal path. The nearest grocery shop is in Charmouth about 2 mins drive. We loved LyRead moreme Regis (about 5 mins drive) it's got plenty of places to eat and the views along the coast are amazing. Hide

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Whitstable is one of Kent’s most popular seaside towns, not only for its long shingle beaches, dotted with colourful huts and houses, but also for its annual Oyster Festival, when the town really comes alive. Here you can sample this renowned delicacy which has been collected in the area since Roman times and brings visitors from all over the globe to get a glimpse of the first catch of the season. Still a working harbour, you can sample a plethora of seafood from the stalls and restaurants as you watch the fishing boats return from sea, or pop up to the bohemian main street with its quirky colourful shops and galleries. Keep to the seaside theme and hire bikes to ride along the coast to Herne Bay just two miles away, or try the famous inland Crab and Winkle Way, which follows the old railway line between Whitstable and Canterbury and is packed with history and nostalgia. Relax with lazy days at the beach, building sandcastles and exploring hidden rock pools or take a long walk along the vast stretch of shingle beach. The area has lots of other beach walks, as well many country and woodland trails nearby, perfect for both you and the family dog! For a little culture, pay a visit to the town’s famous 18th century Castle and Gardens, Playhouse Theatre and Whitstable Museum and Gallery, all perfect for an afternoon or evening out. Only eight miles north of the cathedral city of Canterbury with its popular glass-fronted Marlowe Theatre, you are also just half an hour away from the up-and-coming seaside town of Margate and 45 minutes away from the port of Dover with its famous white cliffs. Slightly further afield, you will find the historic Cinque Ports towns of amongst others, Rye, Hastings and Tenterden where you will find a variety of spectacular monuments and beautiful castles to visit with all the family. Whitstable really is the perfect place for those who want to get back to how holidays used to be – full of fun, adventure and family.
