“See floor plan” The location of this lovely house is really wonderful with beautiful views over the sea. For a large group (we were 8) it is wise to check the floor plan as one bedroom can only be accessed through the shared bathroom! The shower to this bathroom is very old and needs replacing...there are no locks on this bathroom either. Just a few updates would really revitalise this charming house.
“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.
“An idyllic retreat” My husband and i have just spent two nights away in this wonderful retreat. Set in idyllic surroundings the retreat offers the ultimate hideaway. Joy warmly welcomed us upon arrival and was an oracle of information regarding the local area. She really has thought of everything from visibility jackets complete with torches for walking to the pub to a digital photo frame and a delicious basket of homemade and local treats. An absolute gem of a place to which we will most definitely return.
“Excellent base for exploring Lyme Regis” Had a lovely stay at Teal house with friends and family to celebrate wife’s birthday. House very clean and plenty of space. Would stay again. Ower Mark very helpful.

About Lyme Regis

What to Do
Step back in time by visiting the restored water mill. See how it used to support the town, then visit the galleries, gardens, craft studios and shops that surround the old Town Mill. In between visits, relax in the cobbled courtyard and watch the locals go by.
All the family will love Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium. There are lots of creatures to discover, including lobster, starfish, sea-scorpion and more!

Static Caravan situated in a unique location with sea views
We booked for a 3 night late break in Oct. The caravan is an excellent location on a very desirable little site overlooking the harbour. We found it to be very clean & comfortable, equipped with everything you need. It is great for walking dogs which suited us as we took ours. The town is approx. a 20 minute walk along the Cobb, passing all the lovely little kiosks along the way. Everywhere was very dog friendly which is a great plus for us. I was very surprised to see one negative comment as we could not fault it at all although I did not try cooking a chicken as we always eat out on our holidays. Overall I would give it 5 star rating. …

8- bed Luxury House in Beautiful Lyme Regis Dorset
This was the most lovely and comfortable house which suited our party perfectly!
Lavinia communicated superbly with us prior to our stay.
All of which made for a super weekend. …
Driftwood with far reaching sea and countryside views.
Great, recently built apartment on top of the hill with fantastic views. Explored with our two young girls the local area in particular the amazing Jurassic coastline. Would have been nice to have a few basic essentials, maybe a simple welcome pack upon arrival but overall would highly recommend. Thank you. …
Little Roost at Uplyme
February at Little Roost
Wonderfully appointed and cosy hideaway, perfect for a couple in quiet Uplyme and right next to the charming river walk down into Lyme itself. Incredibly friendly and warm welcome from Rose, who couldn’t have been more helpful. Cottage is stocked with huge amounts of useful local information and Rose herself is a source of super tips about the local area, especially if you let her know your plans. Accommodation very comfortable and finished to a super standard, with everything one could reasonably want. A lovely touch is the welcome hamper with some delicious local artisan treats, not least some of Lyme’s marvellous bread - not to be missed. …
