Champernhayes, Charmouth, Lyme Regis, Dorset

Champernhayes is situated on the gentle slope of a West Dorset hillside, with woodland above and a stunning view of many square miles of fields below. The tiny village of Wootton Fitzpaine is just half a mile away to the east, down a winding lane. 

Champernhayes farmhouse and buildings originate from 1482 when, records tell us that a French family named Champernon farmed here. Hayes is the Old English word for enclosure, and this is how the name has been derived.

If you are feeling active, you can try your hand at just about anything in West Dorset. Walkers can choose from miles of heritage coast path, a programme of over 300 guided coast and countryside walks and events, leisurely pub strolls or fascinating town trails. There is an excellent range of golf courses and riding centres as well as plenty of opportunities to fish inland or off the coast.

Walking gives you the freedom to get off the beaten track and absorb the sights, sounds and scents of the countryside, to discover attractive villages with their picturesque cottages, fine old churches and welcoming pubs, to explore the nooks and crannies of historic towns full of architectural interest, or simply to admire the views.

West Dorset is almost entirely designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a spectacular coastline, and is perfect for exploring on two wheels. You’ll find sleepy villages, bustling market towns, river valleys and gentle chalk downlands behind the famous Chesil Beach.
