Situation And Amenities - Fernhill house is a short distance away from the thriving seaside village of Charmouth. Charmouth is on the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage site and has a number of popular restaurants and hotels, as well as a good range of shops, services and amenities that include: a butchers, bakers, chemists, a primary school, public houses, churches and a local convenience store. There is a popular Monday market and many local events to add to the diary. Charmouth itself is positioned between the quaint coastal town of Lyme Regis and the thriving Market town of Bridport. The nearby Lyme Regis has featured in many films over the years and the area makes frequent appearances in the River Cottage programmes. There are a variety of excellent beaches to cater for all tastes in the area, whether you enjoy bathing, a spot of fishing, rock pooling, or a fossil hunt, there is certainly enough to entertain any age. Bridport, 7 miles away, has a twice weekly market, regular farmers' markets and offers a range of quirky and artisan local shops, a vintage quarter and a wider variety of day to day amenities. The area has excellent walking opportunities which are easily accessible from the property, including the famous coastal path.
Description - Fernhill House is a unique and charming home tucked away behind Fernhill Hotel on the fringes of Charmouth. For many years the house formed part of a field studies venue with 38 acres of land, lakes and woodland to explore, hosting schools and others, to enjoy the natural environment. About 20 years ago it closed, and the site now comprises a small freehold hotel, the freehold property Fernhill House, and a number of leasehold holiday cottages. The hotel has a heated swimming pool, and the owners of this property have use of the pool. The 38 acres of land can also be enjoyed by the owners of Fernhill, who are able to walk wherever they like to enjoy the land in all its seasons. Fernhill House has accommodation over 2 floors, approaching 2000ft2, with, in addition, a lower ground floor providing garaging and extensive storage. The house is arranged to take full advantage of the views, with a balcony off the main sitting room, on the top floor.
Outside - There is a very private garden, with raised beds for vegetables, and a patio for sunbathing. The property is the main residence of the owners, who have enjoyed over 10 years of occupation, but now need to downsize. It would also suit a family looking for a 'lockup and leave' home, or for a family looking for a large holiday home near the coast. There is ample parking, in the courtyard in front of the garage, or a short walk away from the property. There is an annual charge for the use of water and drainage on the private system, for access to the 38 acres, plus the swimming pool.

Follow along this road through the villages of Morcombelake and Chideock, taking the first turning on the left signposted Charmouth. Continue to Lyme road and turning left at the Fernhill Hotel. Continue along the driveway to the right of the hotel and park in the communal parking area at the top. Fernhill house can be found slightly further along the driveway and across via a short flight of stairs.
