Make a holiday cottage in Lyme Regis your home away from home

Lyme Regis is found in the very western corner of the Dorset coast. It’s a historic town mentioned in the Domesday Book that became a major port in the 13th century then growing into the popular holiday destination it is today. Nicknamed ‘The Pearl of Dorset’, it’s an ideal location to enjoy a traditional British seaside holiday. HomeAway offers a selection of holiday cottages in Lyme Regis. Depending on the property, visitors can enjoy personal patios and gardens, and some holiday apartments in Lyme Regis have sea views. They come with all the expected amenities and are fully furnished, and most holiday homes in Lyme Regis are within easy reach of the beach and the main attractions.

Things to do

Lyme Regis holiday homes sit on the famous Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site. The nearby towns of Dorchester and Weymouth present great attractions for day trips, and the city of Exeter offers reliable transport links around the region. The town offers visitors both memorable outdoor and indoor attractions.

-Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium is an aquarium on the end of the famous Cobb – the harbour wall that appeared in the movie of The French Lieutenant’s Woman and also in Jane Austen’s novel Persuasion. Visitors can hand-feed a mullet, stroke a lobster, and hold a starfish. As well as these activities, there are also hermit crabs, ballan wrasse, and sea mice to see.

-Fossil hunting is a popular activity in Lyme Regis. Due to the town’s location on the Jurassic Coast, winter storms reveal fossils buried in the rocks. Join a guided tour for fossil hunting and find out how to do it. It’s both educational and enjoyable. It’s also not uncommon for people to find fossils up to one metre in diameter next to the cliff walls.

-Lyme Regis Museum sits in the heart of the town. Not far from most rental cottages in Lyme Regis, it’s a museum built on top of the former home of the famous fossilist Mary Anning. It’s an architectural gem offering some of the largest fossils found on the Jurassic Coast. It’s also a chance to get to grips with the exciting maritime history of what was once one of England’s largest ports.

-The East Devon Way is a landscape footpath which starts from Lyme Regis and winds 38 miles to Exmouth in East Devon. It’s a marvellous way to enjoy the majestic landscape of this part of the English coastline. Just some of the things you can see include river valleys, an estuary, high open commons, and woodland.

-The Town Mill is a complex which seeks to bring the past back to life. The Victorian mill buildings have been restored and work as they did centuries ago. The River Lym still powers the waterwheel, and milling machinery has been perfectly preserved. As well as this, there’s a café, tranquil garden, and craft studios where visitors can get involved in the activities themselves.

Weather in Lyme Regis

Like most much of the southern English coast, Dorset is heavily influenced by the North Atlantic Drift. Holiday cottages in Lyme Regis experience mild weather all year round. Temperatures usually hit an average maximum of 20°degrees Celsius during the summer months. It also enjoys its own microclimate, so Lyme Bay generally remains free of snow and frost even in harsh winters.

Travel to Lyme Regis

The town is served by the A35 and there’s a good network of A roads for getting around the district. The nearest motorway is the M5. Rail travel is from London Waterloo to Exeter and a change to Axminster, with an onward journey to Lyme Regis by car, bus or taxi.

The secure garden is particularly good for dogs as are the many walking opportunities nearby. The stairs are steep but perfectly manageable for the fit and able. Would not recommend for anyone with stability issues. Everyone else will love it. P.S. The T.V. is very small to fit the overall proportions of the property but not really any good for watching rugby. Had to go to the pub. Not sure this could be resolved without spoiling proportions? Louise was very helpful yet unobtrusive. Greg.
