Full description


This detached 'Woolaway' bungalow was probably built in the 1960s. In recent years it has been significantly improved and tastefully modernised to provide spacious, light and bright accommodation with excellent views. Dolphin Leap enjoys a most attractive secluded setting with super views of the sea and across undulating West Dorset countryside. The property is situated high on the west side of Charmouth in a quiet lane with farmland opposite, a few minutes from the centre of this sought after village and the beach.

The picturesque village of Charmouth features unspoilt coastal scenery (much of the area belongs to the National Trust) and extensive beaches. The village is situated on the beautiful Devon and Dorset 'Jurassic Coast' awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in 2001.

There are a good range of village facilities including local shops, pubs, doctors surgery, primary school, library, parish church, etc.

Lyme Regis is only approximately 2 ½ miles to the west and Bridport some 6 miles eastwards.

Note: The property is currently successfully holiday let and if a purchaser wishes to continue this use then the contents are available at separate valuation.
