A short hop and skip across two fields and you will find yourself directly on a stretch of the world famous Chesil Beach. This stretch of beach is frequented by fishermen and you will often see them sitting under their colourful little tents, it's also a haven for walkers and sun worshippers. A little tea room is within walking distance following the path across the field, ideal for a cup of tea after a hearty walk or just head home to your comfy, compact, cottage sheltered from the elements; kick off your wellies and warm your feet by the log burner. Washingpools may be small in size but more than makes up for it in charm and character.
