Looking Glass Cottage is the perfect choice for those seeking a seaside location with all of the amenities of this unspoilt coastal town right on the doorstep.  An attractive two bedroom property in the heart of Lyme Regis, offering comfortable and well equipped accommodation for couples or families.  The seafront promenade, shops, restaurants, pubs and gardens are all just a stone's throw from the cottage. The property benefits from a fully fitted kitchen and bathroom, open plan living area with feature fireplace, dining area and comfortable sitting area.  It enjoys a pleasant view of the town's friendly appeal, ideally located  near the beach, and offers everything needed to enjoy a holiday by the sea.

This holiday cottage is located just a minute's walk from the main shops, seafront and amenities in the heart of the unspoilt Dorset seaside town of Lyme Regis. As well as a sandy beach and seafront promenade, the town includes celebrity chef Mark Hix's superb Oyster and Seafood Restaurant, along with many other restaurants, cafes, pubs and tearooms. Lyme Regis is a wonderful location for a traditional seaside break. There are a wide selection of independent shops, as well as an award winning museum, and small theatre. For the more adventurous, the South West Coast Path heads west through the amazing Undercliffe between Lyme Regis and Axmouth, or east towards Charmouth and the magnificent National Trust land at Golden Cap.

Very clean and well equipped property. It had all we required and extras such as a hair dryer and iron which was very handy given the wet weather.

August 2017

We have been visitors to lyme Regis for 11 years and it is still magical. Loved the information booklet left at the property. It had been very thoughtfully put together. Lovely for the owner to meet us and able to contact him when we had a problem with the drainage which he sorted straight away. The email prior to arrival about all the local events was brilliant.

August 2017

Excellent base for our holiday in Lyme and the surrounding areas. Comfortable and surprisingly spacious, a very relaxing holiday!

June 2017

Had a wonderful comfortable stay.This cottage is very well located in the centre of Lyme. It had everything we needed and the standard of cleanliness and furnishings was very high. It was lovely of the owner to call round to make sure we had everything we needed. We are already looking forward to coming back next year.

May 2017

Had a great time. Cottage was in excellent location . Parking wasnt adjacent but wasnt really a problem.

April 2017

We had a wonderful stay at Looking Glass Cottage. The location within Lyme Regis was fantastic- really handy for shops and beach and not too far from long stay carpark. Beds and bedding were the best we have encountered in any holiday rental property to date. Some kitchen equipment was a little tried i.e. Blunt knives or not provided i.e. Proper cheese grater, pizza cutter etc but nothing major that spoilt our holiday. We would certainly recommend this property to others and hope to return in the future.

April 2017

i) Water stop cock was turned down (unbeknown to us) . Shower was little below par as a result. So should be checked for each resident. ii) Two door keys would have been appreciated. iii) Really needs WiFi today Otherwise excellent

Thank you for the helpful feedback. Toad Hall work closely with owners to ensure guests enjoy their stay and any helpful suggestions are followed up positively to ensure all our cottages deliver a great holiday experience.

Good basic accommodation which served our needs for the week. A comfortable and quiet flat.

August 2016

Looking Glass Cottage is the perfect accommodation to stay in during a summer visit to Lyme Regis. The location is fantastic, being so close to the shops, restaurants, pubs and the beach. The cottage was spotlessly clean on arrival and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed and the whole property is tastefully furnished. The owners have very thoughtfully put together a welcome folder containing lots of information about the immediate area and surrounding villages, and things to see and do. The property owner called by to check that we had everything we needed during our stay, which was much appreciated. We will certainly be back to Looking Glass Cottage in the future.
