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

Enjoyable stay for family holiday with age range from 3 to 72, with pleasant, easy walk into Lyme Regis, a bonus, to avoid the need to pay the high parking charges in the town! This is something that the local council should address to encourage more visitors! The house was clean, comfortable and suitable for our needs. A couple of issues that we had were very quickly sorted out by the management company, for which we thank them.
Thoroughly enjoyed it
We really enjoyed the house. Very comfortable and well equipped. Home from home feeling. Lovely and private and yet very accessible for Lyme Regis. We would definitely stay again. MaryAnn and Richard
