                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      I was recommended this stunning apartment by some friends who stayed in Lyme last year so I was eager to try it for myself and it did NOT disappoint! I found all communications with the owner to be most helpful (my friends have met her and she is apparently just so lovely) and am surprised having just read the previous guests comments that they had trouble accessing the apartment among other things? It was a breeze but then if you understand a keycode system it always is. Upon entering, I knew I was in for a treat because it was instantly warm, welcoming and very homely. Every attention to detail has been considered by one very artistic owner, and I know from my own experience with my own holiday let overseas, that much care has gone into making this place a real home from home so that no-one should really complain about anything (ok, you will always get the nitpickers who go on and on!) This pad is just fantastic for a welcome retreat to the seaside at anytime of the year for so many good reasons which I hope to touch upon here. The finishes are lovely... beautiful bedding, paintings, painted chalk walls, books, games... the kitchen was beyond well-equipped... and so much more. The bathroom a real treat with a rolltop and powershower and lots of knicknacks around.... then, of course... the kitchen area and open living space with views! Oh, those views! Like my friends, I really cannot be negative about one thing! There is so much to enjoy about the place - both inside and out. So many lovely touches which I am going to steal (copy!!!) for my own place!!!! I will definitely be booking again and it will be for one week minimum. I will say this to anyone... if you want the best views of Lyme Bay then you cannot beat this perfect spot. It is hands down the best place in town. Sure, I looked at other places to compare but take my word for it, as I took my friends... get to this place and transport yourself by the evershifting landscape of Lyme Bay because this is what you really came away for... not some tucked away place with no views down a back street. John Fowles was mesmerised by the coastline and owned a spot just up the hill costing 5 times more than here...where you are right on the harbour, kissed by the beach and can smugly say to yourself this is simply the most perfect spot in the world to people watch people at the seaside. Loved it! Nothing to complain about here just pure heaven. Thank you so much.
