Heavenly Christmas

We spent Christmas week there with our extended family and it was perfect. The house had every imaginable facility and was not only clean and in good order but the owners had provided a tall decorated Christmas tree with lights and other Christmas decorations which says a lot about them. The huge kitchen with its Aga, two dishwashers, washing and drying machines and so much crockery and cutlery was ideal. The lounge was so spacious and we loved the wood burning fire there which was a delight in the evenings as the family congregated there. The dining room easily accommodated 16 and the bedrooms were comfortable and well fitted out as were the ensuite and separate bathrooms.. My wife and I chose the little "penthouse" on the top floor with the delightful corner bath and fully equipped kitchen which was wonderful as we could have early morning tea and even breakfast in bed on occasion. The garden was just wonderful our only regret being that we would have liked to have seen it in summer with all its little nooks complete with garden furniture which would be ideal for a peaceful relaxation on a summers day. Our two young dogs loved chasing one another around running down to the river across the bridge and up the other side. The rural riverside path down to Lyme Regis was such a pleasant walk which the dogs also enjoyed. All in all we loved our stay there and have no hesitation in recommending the house to anyone else.

Absolutely Stunning!

We rented this house for my hen party and it was perfect.
The living space is very tastefully decorated and perfectly comfortable for large parties. It has a huge fantastic kitchen where we knocked up a massive meal - with 14 girls the kitchen needed to be sizeable!! The garden is on a differnt scale....perfectly maintained and huge. I highly recommend this house. It was absolutely fantastic and i'm hoping to go back there very soon.

The unique and captivating charms of Lyme Regis have been attracting visitors for hundreds of years.

A busy trading centre in Medieval times and one of the most important ports on the south coast in Tudor times, the town became a popular sea spa in the 18th century attracting Royalty and inspiring poets, writers and painters. Turner and Whistler both painted here and Jane Austen wrote Persuasion after her visit in the early 1800’s. More recently the town featured in John Fowles’ The French Lieutenant’s Woman.

Lyme Regis sits at the heart of the spectacular and dramatic Jurassic Coast. This coastline is England’s first natural World Heritage Site and Lyme is an ideal base from which to explore its diverse geology and abundant wildlife. The River Lym, from which the town takes its name, winds lazily through the maze of narrow streets and shops and as you wander through the town you will find traditional pubs and tea rooms, modern restaurants, galleries and historic buildings.

Notes:
The house is suitable for elderly or infirm on the ground floor and upper garden terrace, however there is no ground floor bedroom. Children a very welcome and guests have said how much their children have enjoyed playing in the garden with the large bamboo's and stream but please NOTE the garden is on different levels and the stream does run through the garden so very young children will need to be supervised.
