The Dorset 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 is easily contacted during your stay.

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

"Excellent facilities and really good location."

Thank you for your review and pointing out our extensive parking facilities, all off road at the property. I am so glad some of the party were able to make use of our mobility aids to enhance the comfort of their stay.

I'm so glad you all were cozy at Goodlands at this time of the year and that the weather stayed dry all week.

It was a pleasure to meet you all.

Best wishes,

"Excellent Accommodation"

The accommodation is excellent and is just as described on the web site. It is very well-appointed with plenty of space inside and out and has absolutely everything you could possibly want in the kitchen drawers and cupboards but have forgotten to bring with you! We would certainly like to come back at some point in the future.

Many thanks for your lovely lines.

Thank you for being such perfect guests.

"Top quality holiday home from home"

A fully equipped holiday house close to both Dorset and East Devon tourist attractions. This is the best equipped and cleanest holiday let we have ever had, and we have stayed in a lot. The bungalow i… More

Thank you for your lovely review and I'm glad you found Goodlands to the standard you expected and the children enjoyed the fields.

Fortunately there is lit pavement to walk to both the pub and shop.

I am pleased to report that following a meeting last week (31st July 2014)with the local MP and the Highways Agency(which our guests read about in the local paper when here) the Agency is at the moment designing and costing for traffic lights at the local junction (the gateway to Lyme Regis on the Jurassic Heritage Coast) which will be fantastic for everyone.

Goodlands has good double glazing, not a sound can be heard inside the property and it is set back from the road behind a large hedge and has it's own 6 acres of fields to enjoy.

Thank you for this very positive review and glad you had lovely weather too!

Thank you for travelling all the way from Switzerland to stay with us.

I'm so glad the children found the toy box at Goodlands - it gives me great pleasure to hear the facilities have been well used and enjoyed.

Thank you for leaving Goodlands so tidy. Glad you got home safely!

Best wishes,

"Excellent holiday let, beautiful location - would definitely recommend!"

Fantastic bungalow in a beautiful location, centrally located for the seaside towns of Lyme Regis, Weymouth and Sidmouth. We had beautiful weather and would definitely recommend West Bay as a wheelchair friendly place to visit. It was a real joy to return to the property after a long day and sit in the wonderful garden surrounded by nature! Joy was available at all times if there were any problems and we look forward to returning to this stunning bungalow again in the future. A real home away from home!

Delighted our guests with mobility requirements enjoyed Goodlands and found it suited their needs.

It's very kind of visitors to leave a line to assist future guests to get an overall feel for the property and area.

With best wishes and hope to see you all again!

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

We are so glad you found the bungalow family friendly and that your elderly parent was comfortable.

Glad you saw the rabbits and were lucky enough to see the deer too. There is a bird feeder just outside the picture window and I am told a variety of species visit.

Many thanks,
