There is everything you need and the location is great for exploring during the day. In the evening there is no need to drive as the village pub served good food, dog friendly and had a great atmosphere too. I would definitely recommend this cottage. Thank you Helen.

                                                                                          The house is in a great location, with parking nearby and the garden was an unexpected bonus as it is terraced, but very large in size, a real sun trap and great for eating and relaxing outdoors. The house itself was basically fine and spacious but could have been a bit cleaner (there were surfaces that hadn't been dusted for some time) and was lacking some household items such as washing powder and soap and there was little loo paper available. However we contacted the owner and he was helpful and provided items very quickly. I would certainly recommend the property as it is so central within Lyme Regis and very near the beach and all amenities. And a wonderful fish and chip shop just a few doors away!
