It is without doubt that Lymelight, a brand new larch clad property set in a central but tucked away location in the Jurassic coastal town of Lyme Regis in West Dorset, won’t fail to captivate the creativity and interest for those seeking something a little bit different for a memorable holiday by the seaside. Brimming with collected treasures, books and the owners’ display of artwork, the combination of modern stylish interiors with a superb light and bright open plan living area which spills into the front garden via floor to ceiling glass folding doors, offers families and discerning couples a luxury retreat from which to enjoy a relaxing holiday on the beach with great days out in the local area. Lymelight is a single storey home lovingly created with beautiful oak floors, top class en suites to two of the bedrooms, gardens to the front and rear, sea view glimpses are enjoyed from the terrace and the piece de resistance is the glorious open plan living area which brings the outside in.
Within a ten minute walk, guests can meander down to Lyme Regis’s bustling sea front and promenade. Often referred to as the ‘Pearl of Dorset’, Lyme Regis is well known for its literary association with Jane Austin as well as its diverse geology which people from across the world flock to on 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 can tear themselves 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 or Branscombe or head to the market town of Axminster to sample Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage.

We had a lovely family holiday with wonderful weather. The house was ideal for small children with no stairs to trip or fall. We all enjoyed the pretty enclosed garden. It was a pleasure to stay at Lymelight - we didn't want to go home, we may be back another year!
Think I've said everything above. Felt like someone's home rather than a rental property. Lots of notes giving instructions stuck all around the house which some may find off putting but I didn't mind since it meant not damaging anything! Would recommend to friends though.
Thank you for the positive review. Lymelight has been designed to give a holiday feel with some fabulous touches throughout this stylish property but is also the chosen style of the owners who also use it. We are always looking for good ideas and future improvements from guests so handy tips can be passed onto the owners for consideration.

We loved our stay at Lymelight. All eight of the family felt very comfortable and relaxed in this lovely home. We especially loved all the art and open plan living. Thank you for letting us stay and we hope to book again!
