Totally amazing little cottage, with an amazing view and ambiance!

5 of 5
This is the sixth time we have stayed in Lyme Regis but the first time staying at Lynch View Cottage. I can honestly say this little cottage is amazing and the best place we have stayed in. The riverside location is relaxing and tranquil. The seafront and shops are close at hand with a picturesque walk through Sherborne Lane is a bonus! The cottage was clean and tidy and had everything you needed to settle you in and make you feel welcome. The owners Mike and Tracy Hamer were so kind and were easily contactable if needed. I will definitely be returning for another holiday stay next year, looking forward to it already!!

Nice place but too isolated.

4 of 5
The property was very nice as were the owners.The only complaint is that it was NOT very near to Bridport as advertised.the distance to Bridport was about 12-15 miles which we did not realise as when we booked we asked for somewhere close to Bridport.
