About Kim Harvey
We bought No 11 in 2004 as a little asbestos shack. We demolished it and put up the building as it is today. It has been constructed using the most energy efficient means and a specification that lifeboat houses use to combat the elements. Its old shack had history dating back to the second world war when it used to be the tea place for the home guard whilst guarding the shores.

Why Kim Harvey chose Eype
We came across the auction details in the local press. We came to look at the site and were so taken with the area we decided to buy. The plot we picked felt best served to fit in the type of building we wanted to erect. We have stayed here in all weathers and it is as idyllic in each season. There is always so much to explore without even having to get the car out.
What makes this Chalet unique
Its position to the Jurassic Coast I would say is the best benefit. The beach is never crowded so you can always guarantee plenty of space. The views of the surrounding countryside as well is amazing especially if you are into wildlife.

Absolutely loved number 11. Everything you need is there. Beautifully decorated and furnished. We didn’t want to leave. Can’t wait to visit again. Fabulous location.
Quiet, clean property perfect for walkers
Modern , clean and prime location for walkers. Everything in good working order. I had to use the electric heaters as the weather was cold but it soon warmed up. Would love to return in the summer.
Great place for dog walks
Wonderful holiday house, really enjoyed our stay, lovely views (our dog gives it five paw
The Chalet is in a lovely setting and is ok. The beds are very uncomfortable and in need of new mattresses and pillows. On arrival it was cold it would have been nice for the heating to be left on low for our arrival. Also needs a knife sharpener as the cooking knives are blunt and the can opening useless. Everything else about the place was great.
I am so glad you liked the lovely setting of No11. I am sorry that you found the bed uncomfortable but thank you for pointing it out to me. This is the time of year that I replace
all the items that need replacing.
Great week on beach. Perfect for walking and the dog!
High standard chalet that has everything you need. We had a really lovely stay.
Great chalet to stay in Dorset. Very clean and comfortable. Location is perfect, right next to the sea. Ideal for a walking holiday right on your doorstep.
