    Fossils and the sea in Lyme Regis

    The call of seagulls and the splash of the English Channel echo around the rocky quays of Lyme Regis. A classic British seaside resort, it's entertained everyone over the years, from Victorian bathers to hopeful palaeontologists, with its mix of sands and prehistoric rocks. For some, it's the perfect gateway to the rugged Jurassic Coast – a World Heritage Site that unearths frozen-in-time creatures and curious geology. For others, it's a place to munch fish and chips on the shore, sip cider and enjoy the summertime vibes. Lyme Regis holiday rentals range from snug Dorset cottages to stunning seafront properties.

    Going pre-historic in Lyme Regis

    Fossil hunting has fast risen to the top of the menu in Lyme Regis. Move over beach sessions and yachting out across the English Channel, because the visitors of today are pining to uncover curled ammonites and bullet-shaped belemnites petrified in stone. You can go hunting prehistoric friezes along the beaches that run to nearby Charmouth, where there are even dedicated "fossil guides" to help reveal tales of the curious dinosaurs you might discover as you stroll. And if it's raining? How about just hitting the town's Dinosaurland Fossil Museum instead?

    Lyme Regis on the waves

    After a long session seeking out thought-provoking fossils set in stone, you'll love the other side of this seaside resort – its beach side. You could search for Lyme Regis holiday rentals near the Cobb – the curving stone pier that forms the harbour – to sleep just a stone's throw from a pretty cove of sand, a clutch of hearty English pubs, seaside chippies and – perhaps most exciting of all – the Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium. You can wander the tanks there to encounter colossal crabs and starfish, mullet pools and more.

    Bracing walks or beach days in Lyme Regis

    Lyme Regis can get blustery and rainy during the winter months, between December and March, which are when the local cottages and cosy boltholes are in higher demand. For Lyme Regis holiday rentals by the sea, it's more likely you'll want to hold off travelling to the South Coast until the milder months of spring and summer have come. They tend to begin with the prime walking conditions of April and May, soon turning into the beach-worthy warmth of June, July and August.

    Eroded cliffs and gorgeous hills in Lyme Regis

    Lyme Regis has an enviable location between a trio of reserves and a natural UNESCO World Heritage Site. The latter spreads out along the Dorset shores, with the Jurassic Coast, a place where every pebble beach could hold the prehistoric remains of creatures that coexisted with the dinosaurs. Inland is where the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty extends into coastal fields that rise to meet the Blackdown Hills AONB. Spotted with farms and woven with rivers, home to barn owls and nightjars and butterflies, that's quintessential southern England.
