Very Good

“February at Little Roost”

Reviewed 23 Feb 2019

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.

“Beautiful cottage”

Owner's reply: Thanks again for coming to stay and great to hear that you enjoyed the riverside walk into Lyme. Hope that you'll get the chance to come back again some day. best wishes , Rose and Duncan at The Roost

“Perfect stay”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2018

Had an amazing stay. The cottage is immaculate, very cosy and had everything you would need. Love the spiral staircase. Rosemary was a fabulous owner and has lots of useful information about the local area. Looking forward to returning.

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for coming to stay and for your kind review. Know that you're welcome back any time at Little Roost. I'm constantly updating the local info file as I discover more and more great local places to visit and dine out in this fabulous area. All the best, R

“River cottage wedding”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2017

Little Roost is ideal if you are visiting River cottage HQ as we did Nice and cosy and quiet but for the hooting of an owl by night What sets it apart though is the welcome you get from Rosemary who clearly cares about her guests with thoughtful touches like provisions and wine Would we go again? For sure!!

Owner's reply: Great that you enjoyed your stay and also a lovely wedding at River Cottage. Thanks for reviewing and hope we may see you again one day. best wishes, R

“Romantic and beautiful!”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2017

Lovely, characterful cottage for two, with thoughtful touches by owner - fresh flowers, welcome food and wine, and a candle and matches which made dinner very romantic. Short, walk through woods to local pub (great carvery), or another walk by river to Lyme. We thought the location was excellent. Lyme is just charming, coffee at the Town Mill or sitting along the seafront, or walking round the fascinating museum. We will definitely return, a truly special holiday!

Owner's reply: Lovely to meet you and great to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Always lots to see and do in Lyme so hope you'll get the chance to return some day. best wishes, Rose - owner Little Roost at Uplyme


Reviewed 15 May 2017

Little Roost is in a perfect location - very rural with a half hour river walk, beginning right next to the cottage, through beautiful countryside to reach Lyme Regis. The cottage is cosy, a mixture of rustic and modern, very tastefully furnished and decorated with everything you would need for a holiday stay. We very much appreciated the 'welcome pack' - tea, coffee, milk, wine, biscuits, freshly baked bread and freshly laid eggs and a beautiful vase full of freshly picked wild flowers (much nicer than bought ones). We loved our stay and hopefully will be back. Thank you ❤️

Owner's reply: Great to hear that you enjoyed the location and the wonderful abundance of wild flowers at this time of year. Thanks for reviewing and hope to see you again some day. best regards, Rose
