Seaside-chic and in an enviable position, this lovely family homestay is a calming, gorgeous bolt-hole for those wanting to wake up to the sound of the pull of the waves over pebbles and the salty sea breeze drifting through the window. Ideally located in the sought-after hamlet of Seatown a few minutes' walk from The Anchor Inn, this is a delightful spot for a beachy holiday with Dorset's iconic landmark the Golden Cap and the breath-taking Jurassic coastline right on your doorstep.

Taking inspiration from the sea, light blues and whites flow through this stunningly renovated barn, offering a spacious, calming and welcoming retreat. With reversed living to make the most of the views, the open plan living space with vaulted ceiling and gorgeous wooden flooring will delight, whilst the relaxed living area and floor to ceiling glass doors that fold back from a Juliet balcony of reinforced glass draw in the sights, sounds and scents of the sea are just perfect! We adore the tucked-away play area too, stacked with books, games and toys to keep little ones entertained.


Paired back and beautiful, cooking is a delight in this stunning kitchen! Set along one wall of the living space, the layout is chic and easy complementing the large farmhouse table that invites lazy breakfast get-togethers and laid-back evening dinners. Fully equipped with all the top mod cons as you would expect plus a super-cute Smeg fridge and the all-important Nespresso coffee machine, every meal will be a celebration in this house.

Alternatively, stroll along to The Anchor Inn where their award-winning menu awaits you. Settle in for a delicious meal washed down with a bottle of fantastic wine and great sea views, all just a few minutes' walk from the house.


Found on the ground floor, the bedrooms offer a blissful escape at the end of a busy day. With thick grey and white striped carpets leading from room to room, you'll find one tranquil double bedroom with double bed and gorgeous en suite with a superb shower, a tremendous twin bedroom and a lovely occasional room with single bed. All beds are swathed in gloriously sumptuous linens and bedding to ensure a blissful nights' sleep.


The family bathroom has a fresh contemporary feel with a bath and hand-shower attachment, easy to use for a quick refresh after a stint on the beach ahead of a long soak at the end of the day. The en suite has a delicious separate shower and both rooms have towel rails to keep your towels nice and toasty. You will find cotton spa gowns and slippers with your towels to wander around in.

Larger parties

The Beach House is situated next to Seatown Farmhouse, making it a perfect option for groups of up to ten people - ideal for a group of friends or multi-generational holidays. Get in touch if you would like to book both properties.


There is a lovely garden outside for you to relax in, with a wooden deck leading to a small lawn. In addition, there's a summerhouse at the far end which boasts stunning views of the Golden Cap from the veranda - perfect for a peaceful coffee in the morning or sundowners at the end of the day.

Thatched roof

Due to the thatched roof The Beach House is a non-smoking property and smoking is not permitted in or within the boundary of the property. It is a condition of the owner's insurance that the barbecue provided remains on the paved area by the well and must not be sited under a gazebo or on timber decking. Further to this the lighting of any candles, bonfires, or the use of firepits or chimineas is not permitted. Thank you for your understanding.


You can park right next to The Beach House as there is off-road parking and a gated driveway for one car plus there is an additional private space opposite The Anchor Inn.


The Beach House has WiFi so if you need to stay in touch with the outside world you can.


One dog is welcome at The Beach House. We charge £35 per week or short break.

Child friendly

A travel cot, high chair and stairgate can be provided on request, please bring along your own bedding for the travel cot.

In the Area

Seatown is an exceptionally pretty location, nestled on the beautiful Jurassic coastline. With walks on your doorstep - such as up the impressive Golden Cap, and with the beach and The Anchor Inn just a few steps away, there's no need to get in the car if you don't want to. However, if you fancy exploring a little further, a trip to The Hive Beach Cafe at Burton Bradstock, River Cottage HQ on Trinity Hill just outside Lyme Regis and the Mark Hix Oyster & Fish House overlooking the harbour in Lyme Regis are a must!
