ABOUT US

AT THE ANCHOR INN

 

Situated just seconds from the beach, our bedrooms are the perfect place to rise early and capture the unrivalled tranquillity of a peaceful Seatown Beach at the start of the day. The beautiful beds are ideal for lying-in on your well-deserved break and simply absorbing the breath-taking views. Each of the large bedrooms has a king-size bed with spacious en suite bathrooms offering both large showers and classic freestanding bathtubs. The views out to sea are nothing short of absolutely stunning and you simply won’t find anywhere you would rather wake up. Our rooms feature everything you would expect for a luxurious stay including flat screen TV, free Wi-Fi and tea and coffee making facilities.

LOCAL AREA

Here you’ll find a few personal highlights and recommendations for things to do while you are in the area.

FOSSILLING

On our very own doorstep – head West along the beach towards Golden Cap. Ignore the cliffs, any fossils found in the clay will be very fragile but instead keep your focus along the low water mark and once your eyes are trained, you’ll find belemnites and ammonites a plenty!
If unsuccessful, head over to the Charmouth and the Heritage Coast Centre to see their amazing fossil collections and find out how to discover your own fossils on the beach. Perhaps you might want to book a Guided Fossil Walk.

WALKING

You are really spoilt for choice in this area of outstanding natural beauty! Head West towards Golden Cap (30-45 mins) with Charmouth (2-2.5 hrs) and Lyme Regis (3-3.5 hrs) beyond. Or heading East to West Bay (1.5hrs) with Burton Bradstock (2.5 hrs) beyond.
If you don’t fancy the long walk back, the area is well served by local bus routes so you can catch a bus back to Chideock. X51 Service which serves Axminster to Dorchester or X53 Weymouth to Axminster

STAYING

We have three ensuite rooms here at The Anchor but if you are looking for self catering accommodation, a good local website to try is Bridport Cottages, offering rich search facilities, including availability, to find a great holiday cottage in our beautiful area, some of which are walking distance to us in nearby Chideock.
