The village is on a hill that slopes down to the unspoilt Chesil Beach. On a clear day views extend from Portland Bill in the east, around Lyme Bay including Golden Cap (the highest cliff in the south of England), past the red cliffs of Devon, across to Dartmoor and right round to Start Point in the west. The views are magnificent. With its unique geology, spanning the epochs from Triassic to Cretaceous, the coastline, popularly known as "The Jurassic Coast", has stunning and ever-changing cliffs and bays, and the world famous Chesil beach. From Exmouth to Swanage, our coast is Britain's first natural World Heritage Site.
The village is the perfect idyll for your holiday, whether it's for fishing, walking, bird watching or visiting any of the many attractions in the area.
