It is in the heart of Old Lyme, very picturesque, near shops, restaurants and sea. We found it very comfortable and had a lovely stay. Only cavils are that the key-safe is rather close to the ground for elderly and less mobile visitors, and the rubbish/recycling requirements can be problematic (without the latter, would have been 5 stars overall assessment). The owner was very helpful when contacted.

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!

It's quiet and out of the way, in the most stunning place, beautifully furnished and we had eggs, milk and cake left for us on arrival. We'll be coming back for longer next time for a perfect retreat away!
