“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.
“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.
“Fantastic MiniMoon!” We stayed at Hedgehog Cottage in the Acorns self-catering apartment as our mini-moon after getting married a few days earlier. Joy was very helpful in welcoming us and the accommodation was of a really high standard. We would recommend it to anyone on a weekend/ long weekend away as a mini moon or anniversary. It was completely perfect!
“This house is fantastic, beautiful decor, well located and to die for” I booked Springfield House for my husbands 50th Birthday celebration with a group of 14 family and friends. The webiste images looked good but were surpased by the house itself. Springfield somehow managed to be homely and wonderfully equiped and comfortable yet still be beautifully decorated, chic and fantatcically located. The car park was great for all the cars (room for 8 spaces) and the teenage kids and some of the 50 year old ones too loved the snooker and games rooms. The view from the windows accross the Jurassic Coast in the morning where breath taking and just a stroll out the side gate and you were either right next to the Mariners Hotel, where they serve a great steak, or a short wander down the hill to the town and the Cobb. On Saturday we all went to Hix Oyster and Fish House again a short 10 miniute walk and were not disappointed. We also decided to arrange a caterer for both Friday night and Sunday lunch as we were such a large group and The Lyme Bay Field Kitchen cannot be praised highly enough. Book this house if you don't, you will miss, what for us, was simply the best long weekend ever.

The Mulberry cottage is a beautifully furnished cottage with all the mod-cons you can think of. It is a short drive or lovely walk into Lyme Regis. Which has lots of little shops and pubs . There is lots to do in and around Lyme Regis. My friends and I enjoyed a lovely walk into Lyme Regis, then visited the Mill followed by a good lunch at The Volunteer Inn before walking back and relaxing by the fire playing games for the afternoon.

Wolds Cottage, Lyme Regis
Great Location and Lovely House
This house is in the perfect location to be able to walk into Lyme Regis and enjoy a short break.
We stayed in a group of 8 adults, and had a fantastic time.
The house was well equipped and spotless when we arrived.
If the weather had been better in the evenings, we would have really enjoyed the terrace on the top floor - but it was lovely Sunday morning! …
This is a lovely, quirky old cottage in a very pretty spot. We stayed for a night to break the journey back from Cornwall, it was my birthday and we had a beautiful family meal in the garden looking over the trees and valley. It’s very quiet, apart from horses and birdsong. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and took time to show our boys (3 and 6) the horses. Only downsides really are that you can’t wander around too much beyond the cottage and its garden with the kids. The double bed we slept in was super comfy, but the other one was on the saggy side (probably only a problem if you have back trouble). The area is beautiful too, high above the Dorset coast, but really quiet, even on a sunny Sunday morning. Great value - same cost as a Travelodge and 100 times nicer (if you don’t mind bringing your own sheets). Thanks. …
