Banff is a two bedroom holiday apartment, quietly tucked away behind the main shopping street in the heart of the unspoilt Dorset seaside town of Lyme Regis, offering comfortable and well equipped accommodation for couples or families. Traditional in feel and agreeably furnished, this first floor apartmet has an open plan living area with a lovely large bay window, making it a light and bright apartment. One small or medium sized dog, well-behaved will also be welcomed. An allocated off-road parking for one car is provided (see details below). This property is the perfect choice for those seeking a seaside apartment with all of the amenities of this unspoilt little coastal town right on the doorstep. The seafront promenade, shops, restaurants, pubs and gardens are all just a stone's throw away.
As well as a sandy beach and seafront promenade, Lyme Regis includes celebrity chef Mark Hix's superb Oyster and Seafood Restaurant, along with many other restaurants, cafes, pubs and tearooms. The town is a wonderful location for those seeking a traditional seaside break. A wide selection of independent shops, as well as an award winning museum, and a small theatre can be found. For the more adventurous the South West Coast Path heads west through the amazing Undercliff between Lyme Regis and Axmouth, or east towards Charmouth and the magnificent National Trust land at Golden Cap. If you are planning a holiday without a car, the mainline railway station in nearby Axminster is served by a regular bus service (or taxis), to and from the town.

A lovely stay in a comfortable apartment. So close to dog friendly cafes and shops as well as the sea.
Our Holiday was very enjoyable, the weather helped-sunny most of the time and evenings warm. Had hoped to use local buses more but found them restrictive on timing. Lovely walks from Lyme itself and a great selection of eateries, Antonio Trattoria earns 5*'s! Please add Antonio to your Review List.Thank you Toad Hall Cottages.
We had a lovely holiday. Flat was in a very good location and everything we could wish for was provided. Decided not to attempt driving car into courtyard!
Quiet and conveniently located. Is there a connection to British Columbia as several flat names suggest. Might try Jasper next year
Great property, great location - a bit scary getting the car in.
yes had a lovely stay , weather was fantastic
During our stay i mistakenly locked myself out of the apartment, and the ladies i dealt with at Toad Hall Cottages could not have been more helpful. All it took was one phone call and the lady managed to arrange for another lady to meet me at the local office with a spare key. Thank you so much. The apartment was spotless and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I have mentioned the 2 points regarding bedroom storage and the possible TV/Wifi problems but these didnt detract from our stay, and will not hesitate to recommend you to family and friends. Hope to stay with you again soon.
Lovely stay, great central location, managed to access the car ok! Have visited Lyme on many occasions and it never loses its charm. Minor point which is not your fault but we did encounter some late night disturbance from the Royal Lion Hotel staff accommodation adjacent, the staff obviously come off duty and given the warm weather tended to sit outside drinking and playing music into the early hours, had we stayed longer I would have considered a call to the hotel management but hey I don't want to be Mr Miserable, wonder if any other clients had experience of this? It would not however deter us from re-booking this apartment.
Had great time accomadation fantastic. Just the arch way was not easy to manover causing £300 worth of damage to car
We loved our stay at Banff, it was our first stay in Lyme Regis and it was an amazing time had by all. Great location, loved the beach, restaurants and bars/pubs. Loads of things for all ages to do, we look forward to coming back some time soon and will be recommending your services. Thank you once again. Mr&Mrs Danaher
It was an amazing location. So convenient.
I would like to pass onto you our thanks for providing a lovely base,for a great holiday. It was faultlessly clean, with every amenity we could need. Providing tea, coffee, milk, toilet paper, and sundries other little things,was a lovely touch. But...best of all the doggy gift bag you put together,was so thoughtful,and much appreciated by your canine guest. So thank you, once again,keep up the good work,and see you in September.
Really enjoyed our stay. Very welcoming,comfortable and homely. Good wifi to keep teen happy. Great location and dog and vegan friendly cafes nearby as well as speciality beers next door. Would love to stay again sometime. Driving through narrow access a little nerve wracking
We certainly enjoyed our stay at Banff, the location in the middle of the high street is excellent and so near the sea front too. Wish they could widen that entrance to the car park, luckily we have a small car but it took some careful driving to navigate through!
Had some difficulties operating cooker and microwave. But thought it a lovely property
Had a wonderful stay . The only problem we had was the car was too big for the entry into the rear court yard but the car park at the top of the village was not too much of a problem as we tend not to use the car when on holiday, we use local transport. Have booked holidays through you before and have never been disappointed.
We had a super week and really enjoyed our stay.
Yes, thoroughly enjoyed our stay, accomodation provided everything to make our stay a pleasure.
We had a fantastic time. Mum in law, who is 80, walked so much and felt totally at ease in the apartment. My love of real ales was also catered for with Cellar 59 next door! Many visits to Lyme Regis but first time we've stayed there. Will definitely be returning. And using Toad Hall.
Lovely flat Perfectly clear on arrival
We love staying at Banff, this was our 3rd visit and we absolutely love it there.
Another great stay, hope to be back again in the future.
We had a great week and the flat was ideally situated.
The owners appear to have thought of everything one might want on holiday. We were really pleased with our stay. Things like the washing machine, dishwasher, cleaning products, pint of milk dropped off on day 1, biscuits, games, takeaway menus were all really appreciated and made the holiday all the better. It's definitely the most organised rental we have ever stayed at. The location was really well situated for us right behind the high street shops but still really quiet.
