The apartment was well furnished, with a well stocked kitchen area which made cooking our usual family suppers easy - when we wanted a break from the lovely restaurants by the sea! The apartment was clean, light and airy and the views from the comfy bedrooms (one double and one with bunk beds) were stunning. The property also has a large communal garden which we had access to but never used as we were out all day. There was lots of local information in the welcome pack to help us plan our activities and the addition of books and board games was a nice surprise. The monopoly set came in very handy for entertaining our busy boys on our only rainy day in Lyme Regis! Another thoughtful little touch was the supply of tea/coffee, pint of milk and local biscuits waiting for us on our arrival - very welcome after our long drive. Having never really had a UK holiday I would now thoroughly recommend it! Booking was easy and the property owner was very helpful & knowledgeable on the lead up to our break. Lyme Regis is a lovely seaside town but be aware that it is quite hilly! The walk to the beach is around 10-15 minutes but can take 20 or so minutes back after a long day on the beach - this was not a problem for us or our boys though. Lyme is also a great base from which to explore other Devon/Dorset areas & beaches - Beer and Burgh Island were our favourites. We had a lovely family holiday and I would happily recommend the property and area to friends & family.

Owners are so friendly and have plenty of advice to offer about local walks and amenities. This area is so beautiful. Definitely recommend especially as they offer any amount of days which is so useful. We must go back. Thanks Sue & Colin for a great time.

We will definitely be back to stay again. Lyme Regis is the idyllic seaside town that hasn't lost its charm or any of its character. Lots to do and see in and around the town, great pubs and places to eat and it has perfect combination of pebble beach one end for those that want a bit more space and don't want sand in their toes, to a perfect sandy beach for our children at the other end. All in all no better location with stunning views, great walks and a beautiful unspoilt town to explore.
