The Gatehouse is a single-storey, converted barn, designed for comfort and convenience. Its location provides space and seclusion, whilst being a ten minute walk down the hill to Charmouth. A footpath passes through the site opening up the prospect of numerous country walks. Even without leaving the Gatehouse, gorgeous views of the West Dorset countryside or a glimpse of the World Heritage Coast can be enjoyed.
- Access is via an all-weather farm track.
- Off-road parking for two cars.
- Charmouth has a post office, paper shop, butcher, fish and chip bar, cafes, grocery store, gift shop and pubs.
- From the village shops, a level walk takes you to the sand and pebble beach with cafe, fossil shop, and the Heritage Centre, where the geology of this famous Jurassic coast is explained.
