Jurassic Coast Self Catering in East Devon
Bulverton House Self Catering Accomodation One Mile from the Jurassic Coast
The spectacular Jurassic Coast is England's first natural World Heritage Site. This unique stretch of coastline sits amongst the ranks of the Great Barrier Reef and the Grand Canyon as one of the wonders of the natural world - Jurassic Coast Self Catering is right here at Bulverton House, one mile from the sea front at Sidmouth.
The area was granted its status for its outstanding geology, which represents 185 million years of earth history in just 95 miles, from Exmouth to Studland Bay. The Jurassic Coast consists of Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous cliffs, spanning the Mesozoic Era, documenting 185 million years of geological history.
You can see excellent examples of landforms, including the natural arch at Durdle Door, the cove and limestone folding at Lulworth Cove and an island, the Isle of Portland. Chesil Beach is a fine example of both a tombolo (a deposition landform in which an island is attached to the mainland by a narrow piece of land such as a spit or bar) and a storm beach (a beach affected by particularly fierce waves). The site has stretches of both concordant and discordant coastlines. Due to the quality of the varied geology, the site is the subject of international field studies. This area was home to Mary Anning, a palaeontologist who studied the fossils of the coastline around Lyme Regis and discovered the first complete Ichthyosaur fossil at the Spittles.
Bulverton House offers 5 Star Self Catering Accommodation with a highly competative tariff structure just one mile from the Jurassic Coast at Sidmouth, East Devon - We are also one mile from the A3052 main coastal route (which connects directly to the coastal A35 & B3157 all the way to Weymouth), the perfect location for your Jurassic Coast Holiday.
