The cottage was rated 4 stars by Visit Britain last year so is well equipped especially in the kitchen.

The Dorset region
The sea is the focus of a wide range of sporting activities. Swimming and bathing are top of the list, thanks to an award-winning environmental protection scheme ensuring the waters around the town are clean and safe – a fact that also shouldn’t be lost on windsurfers, water-skiers or sailors. Check out the Sailing Club and Power Boat Club for information about becoming a temporary holiday member.
Angling is another popular option, especially down by the Cobb where you’ll see a bevy of posters advertising deep-sea trips for catching cod, conger, skate, etc. Alternatively, a quiet trip around the bay might suit you better; in which case catching mackerel is a more likely outcome. Beach casting and pier fishing are also popular.
Walkers will love to explore the National Nature Reserve at the Undercliff. This seven mile long undeveloped woodland is part of the South West Coastal Path and stretches west towards Axmouth and Seaton. Going east from Lyme, walkers can follow the same path or take the costal footpath, part of the 650 mile South West Coastal Path, towards Charmouth and to Golden Cap. At 629ft, this is the highest point on the south coast. Other dry land activities abound: golfing, bowling, pony trekking and biking are just a few of the options available.
As well as being a great place to swim and sunbathe in the summer, Lyme is a paradise for visitors all year round and many tourists come in the winter during a storm just to watch the waves crashing over The Cobb.
Easily accessible, and only three hours from London and the Midlands, Lyme Regis is away from it all, nestling in the unspoilt West Dorset countryside. Part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site, and surrounded by areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Lyme Regis, the “Pearl of Dorset”, is famous for its fossils, its historic old town, its Cobb and its beaches. And now it's a destination for food lovers, with Hix Oyster and Fish House in the town, and River Cottage HQ and Axminster Canteen both close by.
The old town, dating back to the 14th century, is an ideal place to walk and explore the local shops, art galleries, newly replanted gardens with myriad places to stop to eat and drink. Built around the River Lym, Lyme has its own working Water Mill, recently refurbished to include an electricity generator. Lyme Regis is very special in that it is probably the smallest town in the country to boast its own cinema, theatre, and museum.
The Cobb attracts visitors – not just for its visual splendour and its magnificent naval architecture, but also for its connections with great literature. Indeed, people come from all over the world to see the steps where Louisa Musgrove fell in Jane Austen’s Persuasion; or to see where Meryl Streep stood, looking forlornly out to sea, in the film adaptation of John Fowles’ The French Lieutenant’s Woman. And art lovers are drawn to Lyme for both its beautiful scenery and for its wide range of art galleries.
Holiday makers will enjoy a family-friendly, sandy beach and an often-surprising micro-climate in the shelter of Lyme Bay. Marine Parade is a great place to walk, sit, enjoy the views and visit its small shops and eating places. Here the seafront facilities will soon benefit from restoration of the Marine Parade Shelters, ready for summer 2011. The town and surrounding area have many attractions and host a range of family-centred events, including a Jazz Festival, a Fossil Festival, Life Boat Week and a Regatta & Carnival Week.
For visitors who have had enough of the hurly-burly, and need to escape, there are many delightful places to stay to suit all budgets. You will be able to enjoy walks in the surrounding countryside and there are many opportunities to go out on a boat to view the glorious coastline from the sea or to fish in the clear waters of Lyme Bay.

"Excellent Holiday Cottage"
Just got home after staying 1 week at Lavender Cottage which is in a very central part of Lyme, very close to many restaurants and sea front, the cottage was very clean and warm, very nice to have outdoor space for the dogs, lots of lovely long walks from the cottage, so you don't need to use your car every day, car park was only 1min walk away up a hill, We had a very nice holiday and would come back again.

"Lovely cottage, lovely location, lovely weather"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Lavender Cottage, Lyme Regis. The cottage is well situated, just a few minutes from the town. It was very convenient having the two bedrooms & bathrooms on separate levels. The only thing that let the cottage down was the garden which badly needed tidying up & weeding. It was in need of a little tlc in order to sit in it.

"Excellent location and spacious accommodation"
We liked this accommodation a lot; nicely arranged over three floors with bathrooms on the second and third floor (one en-suite) so good if you are two couples and want a degree of privacy. Lovely individual touches in terms of the decorations, furnishings etc. Comfortable and relaxing. Free and solid wifi connection. Central part of Lyme.

"Comfortable, good quality, great location"
For a family with two teenagers, Lavender Cottage was a good choice - comfortable, clean, spacious enough, pretty well equipped, and well-placed for many of Lyme's best eating places and for early morning swims - followed by toast feast at the Town Bakery.. That wrought iron bedhead was not great but the mattress was a good one if you like them on the hard side. Nice, solid bathrooms. Good television equipment and wifi (the latter a bit faint on the top floor ...),

"Lyme is great, so is this place"
We stayed for a week with a super-active 1 yr old: Mark the owner was good enough to get us a toddler gate for the stairs - he already had crib, high chair, plus all the things that make a family holiday easy - washer, dishwasher, well equipped kitchen, two bathrooms. The house is simply lovely - by way of some clever decoration and renovation it manages to be warm, light and airy and homelike but still to feel a centuy or two old (which I guess it is - we never worked that out- but 19th/18thC?). That is just right for the setting. We loved the garden - full of lavender and bees; we loved the location - short and pretty walk to everything. We had no trouble with the parking - we just brought the car down from the local car park to load and unload it when we needed it. It rained every single day we were in Lyme - the UK's great washout summer - but even this was okay -we had one warm afternoon lying on the beach, and a lot of lovely walks - on the cobb, fossiling and so on. The Lyme museum is superb, and there are some great places for food (try the croissants at the Coombe St bakery, and the ale and cheese from those shops within the Mill). We also took some drives to nearby attractions - eg. Abbotsbury (about 20 min) with its swannery and medieval tithe-barn turned adventure playground; Chesil beach (just extraordinary) and so on. Highly recommended - one of the best holidays we've had.
