Find cottages in ChideockVisit Chideock

The picturesque village of Chideock lies nestled in gently rolling countryside of south west Dorset, not far from the popular vacation spots of Bridport and Charmouth. With its rustic charm, historic cottages and ideal location near the Jurassic Coast, Chideock is the perfect place to rent a holiday cottage and spend a few days of rest and relaxation.

As well as the obvious draw of the village's quaint beauty, Chideock also boasts several cultural and geographical attractions. Among these are the historic church of St Giles and the majestic 18th century mansion built by Samuel Roles, a wealthy local merchant. Keen walkers and photographers will be delighted to learn that just two miles from the village you will find the famed Golden Cap, a towering hill which offers sweeping views over the Jurassic coastline. The climb to the summit lasts approximately 40 minutes but the scenery from the top makes it well worth your while.

If you want to enjoy a taste of the rural way of life make sure you take the five mile drive to neighbouring Bridport for its twice-weekly market, which is held on Wednesdays and Saturdays, while children are sure to enjoy scouring the beaches of Charmouth for fossils. Historic Lyme Regis is also just a short drive away and boasts a famous harbour known simply as the Cobb, which dates back hundreds of years and is worth a visit if only for a photo opportunity.

Back in Chideock, if you're feeling peckish head to the George Inn in the centre of the village for a hearty meal of beer battered local fish or home cooked local ham, washed down by a glass of Chilean merlot.

If all this sounds too good to miss, come and discover this charming Dorset village for yourself; search for Chideock holiday cottages today.

The Old Post Office on The Green is an attractive and charming period cottage, believed to be over 200 years old, and built of stone with a whitened rough-cast rendered exterior under a thatched roof. Serving as the village post office until 1935, it was formerly three dwellings, but now stands as one detached house, providing spacious accommodation, whilst enjoying many features such as sloping ceilings, oak beams, open fire and a large enclosed garden. Sensitively modernised, the cottage retains its natural character, blending old world charm with modern day conveniences.
Occupying an elevated position on the southern slopes of Hardown Hill, facing Stonebarrow Hill – which is owned by the National Trust – it is located between Morcombelake and the sea. The surrounding countryside and Heritage coastline is some of the most beautiful in the area, and officially designated as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Within walking distance is the National Trust’s Golden Cap Estate, where southern England’s highest cliff can be found – composed of sandstone, and crowned by yellow gorse, it makes a good vantage point from where magnificent views along the coast take in Portland Bill, where a lighthouse has guarded the promontory since the 18th century. The villages and beaches of Chideock and Charmouth (novelist Jane Austen’s favourite resort) are both within 2½ miles. For a great day out, Bournemouth is within easy driving distance. The pier and beautiful sandy beach are well-renowned, but the other great attraction is the unusually high proportion of green space, with millions of pine trees and thousands of acres of public gardens. The best known is Compton Gardens – seven gardens, each with a different theme, from Japanese to Italian. Village store ¼ mile. Shop/P.O. ½ mile.

Large beamed living room with open fire. Large dining room with decorative fireplace. Well-equipped modern galley-style kitchen. Twin bedroom. Shower room with toilet. First floor: Two double bedrooms, each with beamed sloping ceiling; one with low ceiling and en-suite bathroom with shower attachment and toilet (low ceiling), one with 5ft wrought-iron and brass bed and wash basin. Twin bedroom. Bathroom with shower attachment and toilet.
