The West Country region
Dorset is situated in the South West of England with Lyme Regis being on the Western side at the Dorset/Devon border.
A fascinating place for visitors due to the immense amount of rural countryside and dramatic coastline, not to mention the historic interests and charming properties to be found in the various towns & villages.
Dorchester, Weymouth, Exteter, Honiton, Seaton, Charmouth, Abbotsbury, Chard, Sidmouth, Honiton, Beer and Torbay are all within range of Lyme Regis, so there are plenty of interesting & varied day-trip options available to visitors.
Perhaps one of Dorsets most famous characteristics is its Jurrassic Coastline which features many natural landmarks including Lulworth Cove, Chesil Beach and Durdle Door to name just a few, and all of which are within easy vehicle access.
Chesil Beach is a natural phenomenon measuring some 18 miles in length with an average width of 160 metres and rised to around 12 metres in height making the beach the largest tombolo in the UK. The beach is infact shingle and pebble tombolo connecting Portland to Abbotsbury and then continuing along the coast to West Bay. The beach forms part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Behind the beach is the Fleet Lagoon (Fleet Nature Reserve).
There are too many tourist destinations & places of interest to mention. A comprehensive folder can be found on the lounge table upon your arrival which provides an interesting array of local information & tourist destinations.
There is so much more to the West Country and Dorset which you could ever cover in a week or fortnight's holiday. Best to plan your trip well and make the most out of every day. For anything you might miss, there's always next year to come back and continue where you left off, as so many other visitors do year after year!
Lyme Regis is steeped in history and full of charm, surrounded by unspoilt countryside and beautiful clean beaches.
The unique and captivating charms of Lyme Regis have been attracting visitors for hundreds of years.
A busy trading centre in Medieval times and one of the most important ports on the south coast in Tudor times, the town became a popular sea spa in the 18th century attracting Royalty and inspiring poets, writers and painters.
For family entertainment within easy driving, there are many attractions such as Crealy Adventure Park, The Donkey Sanctuary, Cricket St Thomas Wildlife Park, Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum and the Haynes Motor Museum to name a few. Alternatively, enjoy a day out at Weymouth - with its sandy beach, Time Walk, Sea Life Centre and Deep Sea Adventure, visitors will be spoilt for choice. Exeter cathedral city with its catacombs, shops and museums is well worth a visit and returning to Lyme Regis, chill out on the patio and enjoy the stunning views over Lyme Bay. The nearest Pub is just 100 yards away!
Turner and Whistler both painted here and Jane Austen wrote Persuasion after her visit in the early 1800’s. More recently the town featured in John Fowles’ The French Lieutenant’s Woman.
The Original Lassie was the pet dog of the landlord of the Pilot Boat Inn in the square. She was immortalised by the Holywood film industry. Find out why, read the press cutting in the pub! (It’s a good pub as well with local ales!)
Lyme Regis sits at the heart of the spectacular and dramatic Jurassic Coast. This coastline is England’s first natural World Heritage Site and Lyme is an ideal base from which to explore its diverse geology and abundant wildlife.
The River Lym, from which the town takes its name, winds lazily through the maze of narrow streets and shops and as you wander through the town you will find traditional pubs and tea rooms, modern restaurants, galleries and historic buildings, all leading to the harbour and its famous Cobb.
Lyme’s beautiful, sheltered, south-facing beaches have recently benefited from a coastal protection scheme. Completed in 2007 the scheme has provided easier access and a larger beach area. An award winning environmental scheme has ensured Lyme has safe and clean bathing waters.
Along the seafront, newly landscaped gardens provide the ideal spot to laze away the day, relaxing and enjoying the stunning views.
Today Lyme Regis is a hub of activity with year round locally organised events including the famous Jazz Festival, Carnival & Regatta Week and Lifeboat Week.
This bustling seaside resort offers a wide choice of all year round holiday activities for everyone; beach days, watersports, coastal walks, fishing trips, cycling or fossil hunting. The choice is yours!
