The West Country region

Goodlands is set in An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty here on the Devon Dorset border in the middle of the Jurassic World Heritage Coast which stretches for 95 miles recording 180 million years in time.

Goodlands is just a 5 minute drive to Lyme Regis an historic seaside town famous for its fossils with a sandy beach as well. Excellent walking inland and along the Coastal Path.

To the west are the seaside towns of Seaton, Beer, Branscombe, Exmouth & Sidmouth and travelling to the east along the South Dorset coast we have the nearby Chesil Beach, Abbotsbury, Portland with its new Olympic Marina and Weymouth. Inland Exmoor and Dartmoor can be visited in a day trip. For those who enjoy visiting National Trust locations and castles there is nearby Montecute Hous, Forde Abbey, Sherborne and Powderham Castles.

Lyme Regis

On our doorstep is the sea side town of Lyme Regis is famous for fossil hunting. Experts take out fossil hunting walks from Lyme Regis and nearby Charmouth. Pretty beach huts on the historic Monmouth Beach at Lyme and an area of sandy beach by the historic Cobb. You can while away the hours in the old town of Lyme with its Mill and enchanting back streets full of fascinating shops from the Micro Brewery and Cheesemonger to the art Galleries. Lyme Regis is the perfect place for a family holiday. The area is a foodies paradise with Mark Hix's Oyster and Fish House also in Lyme Regis and just 3 minutes drive away and TV chef Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's River Cottage for meals and events is just 3 minutes drive from Goodlands. At nearby Burton Bradstock a glorious beach with well known The Hive Beach Cafe.

Lots to see and do for children several nearby seaside towns, the Dinosaur Museum, Beer Caves, Pecorama, Cricket St. Thomas Wildlife Park, Sidmouth Donkey Sanctury and Seaton Tram are just an example of the nearby local attractions. Plenty of holiday information at the property. Joy, your Host who greets you personally on arrival, is a true local and font of information.

A congenial climate all year round and a great place for visiting with plenty to see and do all year around.

"Everything you could wish for and more........"

We have just spent a wonderful Christmas week at this excellent accommodation. The bungalow is in a wonderful setting and the most well equipped and comfortable home from home we could have asked for… More

Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to write such lovely lines for me.

Christmas is a very special time of year and I was delighted that you were able to make such good use of the open fire and box of games for the children. A traditional Christmas was enjoyed by all it seems.

Please visit us again and enjoy the meadows in summer.

"Every comfort"

It is difficult to find anything extra to add to the comments which have already been made about this wonderful holiday bungalow. Very spacious and immaculately clean; every piece of kitchen equipmen… More

Wow, thank you so much for such lovely words about Goodlands.

In autumn the hedges are loaded with blackberries and a family who came for the first 2 weeks of October said they had blackberry and apple crumble many nights!

We have pears here at The Retreat and I made some fabulous compote - come and stay and pick your own.

Best wishes and thank you for your kind words.

"Home from home"

Goodlands was such a lovely base for our holiday in Dorset/Devon. The bungalow was spacious, comfortable and equipped with everything needed to enjoy our family holiday. Our ages ranged from 7 months … More

Thank you for this lovely review - I'm delighted that your whole family from tots to seniors found Goodlands comfortable and a good base to explore the World Heritage Jurassic Coast.

For the seniors, I have just acquired a velvet high back wing chair for those who prefer a sturdy lounge chair which I can make available on request.

Please remember, returning guests get a 5% discount.

Best wishes to all.

"Every detail catered for and very helpful"

A very nice place to stay. Spacious and roomy accommodation. Joy greeted us on arrival and gave us some great little tips on Lyme Regis town and how to get there, where to park and good places she rec… More

Thank you for these lovely lines.

Delighted the complimentary wi fi worked so well at Goodlands and mobile reception was good too.

Lucy's Tea Room near Clapton on the B3165 is a fantastic place to stop for a cream tea or light lunch - there is a pets corner for children too!

As ever we thoroughly enjoy greeting our guests and passing on some tips for the best places to eat, visit and park.

See you again!

"A great place to enjoy Devon"

The welcome we received from Joy the owner was so warm, she made us feel that nothing was too much trouble if we needed anything or her. The accommodation at Goodlands is comfortable and homely it mak… More

Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to write such lovely lines. I'm so glad the bunny floor show in the fields kept everyone amused.

Very kind of you to write a review and much appreciated.

"Wonderful place which I would recommend to anybody!"

We usually stay in hotels, but family circumstances - children under 2 - required a less formal arrangement. "Goodlands" is outstanding in every way. The bungalow is fully equipped and there… More

How very very kind of these guests to write such lovely lines.

It is just so nice for me that our efforts do not go unnoticed. We really do try to do our best.

To me, running Goodlands and our short break accommodation (The Retreat, also listed) is more than a job and I thoroughly enjoy my work when our guests report back that they have had a happy time.

The bunnies will soon be getting their own fan club I suspect!

I was delighted in the last review that deer were also seen in the meadows!

Thank you so much and don't forget, returning guests have a 5% discount.

Best wishes to all - Joy

Joys Ferienhaus in der nähe von Lyme Regis (5 Min. mit dem Auto) ist hervorragend geeignet für Familienferien. Das Haus ist hervorragend ausgerüstet und gepflegt. Es ist alles da (auch Waschmaschin… More

Thank you so much to these European guests for the lovely review! I did the Google Translation and delighted to learn that deer as well as bunnies all paid you visit at Goodlands!

You left Goodlands immaculate and it was such a help at this busy time of year.

Hope to see you again and don't forget, return guests receive a 5% discount!

"Outstanding bungalow & an owner who excels in customer service"

I had poor Joy taking photo's of the sink and loo to make sure it was suitable for my disabled father of 88 before we booked. This was an excellent bungalow for seniors as well as the rest of the… More

Thank you so much for such lovely words.

I am so glad the extra photos I sent via my phone/email confirmed that Goodlands was indeed suitable for this guest's parent's requirements.

I am always more than happy to have a chat on the phone or via e mail to answer any queries - being a local I can give first hand descriptions of pretty much anything you may wish to see, visit or eat! (I like the eating part the best from being around here!!).

Hope to see you again one day and don't forget - returning guests get a 5% discount.

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write such a lovely review for us.

Extremely well equipped bungalow in a superb, but easy to reach, location. Our party comprised 3 generations - from my husband's advanced 65 years to my grandson's tender 8 months! The bun… More

We loved having you visit and hope to see you all again one day.
