Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Lyme Regis - Lavender Cottage

2 bedroom cottage sleeping 4 people each room with its own bath/shower room.

Lavender Cottage is available for weekly self catering stays and short breaks outside school holidays. The cottage is ideal for small families and couples with bath/shower facilities on each floor of accommodation. The cottage was rated 4 stars by Visit Britain last year so is well equipped especially in the kitchen.

great location, comfortable, dog friendly

  • 3 of 5

A great location in the heart of Lyme with pubs and restaurants on the doorstep. This was a well appointed, comfortable house with pretty much everything we needed for a short stay while building work was being carried out on our house.

Reserved car parking just around the corner was great and I'd guess a must have during the high season.

Great too that the property was dog friendly.

Great place for Christmas

  • 4 of 5

We had a really great, comfortable and warm holiday over Christmas. The cottage was clean and well appointed especially the brand new kitchen and it was just a couple of minutes from the seafront and town centre.

Perfect for exploring Lyme

  • 4 of 5

A super location in a quaint, historic quarter of Lyme but a short walk (downhill) from the seas, shops and attractions. Very quiet and cosy cottage with everything we wanted - we'll definitely be going back

a homely and comfortable cottage

  • 4 of 5

It was very easy to settle into the cottage and to find our way out for supper in one of the many local restaurants and pubs. The cottage did need some maintenance but I suspect these little jobs were due to be done at the end of the season. We would recommend it and have booked next door for longer next summer. The owner was very helpful, we liked the discount at Hix!

Lovely cosy central location property

  • 4 of 5

The property was lovely, clean and welcoming. We loved the central location. The kitchen was looking a little tired but we put this down to end of season and hope it will be sorted for our next visit.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and feedback. We're planning to replace the kitchen so your comments have given us the extra incentive to do it now!

Lavender Cottage

  • 4 of 5

A very well positioned property with easy access to local facilities and attractions. Comfortable and clean accommodation with all necessary fixtures and fittings. Really enjoyed our stay and would certainly book again and recommend to friends and relatives, We had a wonderful meal at the Cobb Arms and also the Fish and Chip shop/café nearby. Mark was very helpful, especially regarding the parking pass.

Lyme Regis
Car: not necessary

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.
