Situated in a delightful riverside location less than a 10 minute walk alongside the river to the town and beach. A deceptively spacious riverside cottage within easy reach of the beach and shops – a lovely base for a relaxing holiday. Located in the heart of this unspoilt Dorset seaside town, a perfect choice for those seeking a seaside cottage with all the amenities on the doorstep.
Within a ten minute walk, guests can meander down to Lyme Regis bustling sea front and promenade. Often referred to as the ‘Pearl of Dorset’, Lyme Regis is well known for its literary association with Jane Austen as well as its diverse geology which people from across the world flock to in the hunt for fossils. The historic old town retains an olde worlde charm with small streets filled with galleries, boutique shops and famed gastro restaurants and cafés. Its sheltered south facing beaches are safe for children and water sports enthusiasts alike with great fishing and leisure boat opportunities available from the Cobb harbour. For those who would like a change of scene and a day away from the beach, the surrounding rolling countryside, which is an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, boasts walking and cycling in abundance or perhaps while away a few days exploring pretty East Devon fishing villages such as Beer and Branscombe or head to the market town of Axminster to sample Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage Canteen.
Fully fitted kitchen equipped with electric double oven and hob, microwave and fridge with icebox. Leading off the kitchen is the cloakroom with WC, washbasin and a washer/dryer. The kitchen leads through to the dining room with table and chairs to seat six. The lounge is furnished with sofa and armchairs, flatscreen TV and DVD player. Stairs from the lounge to the first floor. Bedroom 1 with 4ft 6inch double bed and en-suite shower room. Bedroom 2 with a 4ft 6inch double. Bedroom 3 with a 3ft single bed. Family bathroom with mixer taps, WC and washbasin.
To the rear of the property is a small garden, ideal for sitting out. However, due to the uneven ground, the garden is not really suitable for children to play in – they will need to be supervised.
To the front of the property is a parking space for a medium size car.

Despite my comments above we enjoyed our stay. The good points of the property are location, parking (however restricted), good heating and hot water on demand and sizeable bathroom and shower room.
We found Crays Cottage is a quirky, comfortable cottage in a good location close to the town, well equipped and clean. We found the garden a bit of a challenge but our small terrier enjoyed climbing the steep steps! We really enjoyed our stay in Lyme Regis, although the weather wasn't great. The central heating in the cottage was very efficient so we were able to dry our wet clothes! Toad Hall Cottages were very efficient and helpful throughout our dealings with them, we would definitely use them again.
We had a lovely stay, location being the main attraction! The email sent prior to our arrival with the different events going on was brilliant & have never had anything like that before. So useful to know what's going on.
