Ammonite House is set on the historic Rousdon Estate, a truly magnificent location at the heart of the Jurassic coast, 3 miles west of Lyme Regis. Dating from the 1870's the Estate is a unique development built around an impressive mansion house, with cottages and converted farm buildings forming a small community. The beautiful landscaped 350 acre parkland is surrounded by mature trees and for the more adventurous there is access, via a steep footpath, to the private beach at Charton Bay. The famous Undercliff section of the South West Coast Path, stretching between Lyme Regis and Axmouth, can also be accessed direct from the estate grounds.

The ground floor includes a large fully fitted kitchen /dining room along with a separate utility room and there are two comfortable sitting rooms with TVs.

There is a fully enclosed walled garden that provides plenty of space for storing bikes etc. and is the perfect spot for barbecues and al fresco dining. There is off road parking for up to three cars.

We enjoyed staying in this lovely well appointed property in beautiful surroundings.

June 2017

We as a family loved this cottage and the stunning location. It was beautifully presented and the card with welcome gift was perfect. We would like to have to been briefed before arrival on the need to bring eco cleaning products to protect the reed bed, as had purchased others in preparation for stay. We would like to enquire about availability for next May 2018! (If you'll have us back!)

September 2016

Impressed by our first dealings with Toad Hall and their efficiency in finding us a property at short notice. Ammonite House was superb and we would love to return there (or a similar property) in 2017.

The owners have thought of every tenant's need, and their attention to detail is commendable.

November 2015

we booked quite late for my family and my parents in law. the house was perfect on paper, it was perfect when we arrived. the house was laid out just as we would like it, it had 2 lounges, one for the elderly (loud tv noise....) and the other for the rest of the family. the house was modern, clean and well furnished. we would definitely use toad hall cottages again.
