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.

"Ideally located, a modern, clean and tidy holiday let"
Lyme Regis welcomed us with a dry and fairly bright day, and the sea beckoned us as we drove down the steep hill towards it. Its streets were narrow and many of the houses were colourful and had character. The main street in town (Broad Street) looked better than I expected, with nice looking shops and pubs. There are many fossil shops to browse, which the children found fascinating, especially the massive T-Rex skull in the shop window of one. Teal house is a large three storey mid terraced building, with the front door tucked off the narrow road. It is ideally located for a holiday let, as you are only a short walk away from the sea and shops. Coombe st. has various businesses such a fish and chip shop, a pub, a bakery and tea room. There are also a few little shops with crafted gifts, clothes, postcards, toys and other inviting things on offer. Just up the road from the cottage there is a walkway with a river running along either side of it, which leads to a little micro brewery along with a few other businesses, and a working water mill powered by the canal. There are car parks dotted around, but we managed to find street parking about 5 minutes walk away from the house. Inside Teal house everything was pretty much as we were expecting from the pictures we had seen. Some nice oak woodwork and flooring. Exposed brick and stone fireplaces and walls, and a winding old fashioned staircase. The layout of the bedrooms was different to how we had envisaged, but not at all disappointing: There's a main bedroom on the first floor at the front, with a bathroom and bedroom at the back,with a modern set of dark wood bunk-beds. On the top floor there are another two bedrooms a double and a twin (not bunk-beds), with a contemporary shower room just off the landing. The master bedroom on the first floor has been beautifully decorated . The wall around the window is exposed stone as well as the wall with the fireplace on. The other walls are painted white and the whole room has a peaceful feeling to it. The large window with a large oak sill is where a model sailing boat sits, and reminds you that you aren't far from the seaside. The bed looked very inviting with its soft white cotton bedding. The bunk-beds in the kids room had really soft and clean bedding too. One thing we were a bit concerned about, the holidaylettings website stated that pets were 'not allowed', which gets a big 'tick' from us when choosing a place, yet in the booking form there was the option to state which pets we would be taking, obviously a bit of an inconsistency there. However, there was no smell of dogs in the house. The kitchen cupboards were clean inside, and you got the feeling the place was well looked after. The dishwasher settings on the display are written in hieroglyphs, but we managed to find a manual online after a quick google search. Overall we really enjoyed our stay at Teal House, 31 Coombe Street. The owner was very friendly and helpful and we would definitely consider staying there again.

"Perfect for our Family"
Extremely well run Rental Cottage in the heart of Lyme Regis, efficient booking and after care service, the house had everything we could need. the Location was perfect minutes from the beeches, and the best Fish and Chip shop Lyme has right next door. Bedrooms was light, airy, clean and spacious for this little town house. Dinning room was good, the cooker in the Kitchen took a moment or two to work out, but otherwise all was fine. We came with extended family for a Family Wedding and this house suited every need, thank you

"Beautiful cottage, lovely for families, in a great location"
A really lovely, beautifully decorated cottage. Very well equipped and perfect for a family holiday. The cottage is in a great location - just a 10 minute flat walk to the High Street and the beach - and that's with small children. The garden is lovely and is a real suntrap - but there are some very steep steps up to the garden. Overall I would highly recommend this cottage and would go there again myself.
