Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Lyme Regis - Lavender Cottage

2 bedroom cottage sleeping 4 people each room with its own bath/shower room.

Lavender Cottage is available for weekly self catering stays and short breaks outside school holidays. The cottage is ideal for small families and couples with bath/shower facilities on each floor of accommodation. The cottage was rated 4 stars by Visit Britain last year so is well equipped especially in the kitchen.

There's lots to do in Lyme Regis being in the middle of the Jurassic Coast between Charmouth and Seaton. Plenty of walking by the sea or countryside inland. Many restaurants including Mark Hix's Fish & Oyster Restaurant and Hugh Fernley Whittingstall's River Cottage Canteen in Axminster

Outstanding!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weeks stay in Lavender Cottage, it was exactly as described and in a perfect location, close to the beach and all the amenities and even had a small quiet local pub just a few doors away. 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.

Excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was excellent and well equipped in the heart of the old town and so very close to three very good restaurants and bakery which baked 7 days a week.. Minor problem with lights was resolved same day. Garden though needed some tidying up.

Excellent location. Cosy cottage.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely cottage which had everything we needed. With a bit of TLC in the garden, some minor fixes in the bathroom and new garden furniture this would be the perfect place for a holiday. We would still thoroughly recommend this property.

Lovely well appointed cottage in good central postion

  • 5 of 5

It was a lovely cottage, we had stayed in Coombe St for many years and have been going to Lyme for over forty years. Lovely well appointed kitchen the only advice would be to have more than one mug, I bought another, and tumblers would be a good idea

Owner's Response: Thank you for a lovely review and buying a mug. There must have been some breakages that I wasn't aware of. I've bought some new mugs and tumblers now.

It was advertised as a "Cosy Cottage" and it certainly was!!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at Lavender Cottage. Lyme Regis has a lot to offer all ages. The cottage had everything we want for our week's stay. It was very nice to have the two en-suites and both bedrooms were very nicely fitted out. The beds in each room were very comfortable. Being senior citizens we made the most of travelling along the coast on the buses so we were able to park the car up for the whole week. We enjoyed several meals out in the different pubs but also enjoyed eating in as the kitchen had everything we needed.

I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family and would have no problem in returning to Lavender Cottage. Also the owner "Mark" was very responsive to any questions we had.

Lyme Regis
Car: not necessary

Easily accessible, and only three hours from London and the Midlands, Lyme Regis is away from it all, nestling in the unspoilt West Dorset countryside. Part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site, and surrounded by areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Lyme Regis, the “Pearl of Dorset”, is famous for its fossils, its historic old town, its Cobb and its beaches. And now it's a destination for food lovers, with Hix Oyster and Fish House in the town, and River Cottage HQ and Axminster Canteen both close by.

The old town, dating back to the 14th century, is an ideal place to walk and explore the local shops, art galleries, newly replanted gardens with myriad places to stop to eat and drink. Built around the River Lym, Lyme has its own working Water Mill, recently refurbished to include an electricity generator. Lyme Regis is very special in that it is probably the smallest town in the country to boast its own cinema, theatre, and museum.

The Cobb attracts visitors – not just for its visual splendour and its magnificent naval architecture, but also for its connections with great literature. Indeed, people come from all over the world to see the steps where Louisa Musgrove fell in Jane Austen’s Persuasion; or to see where Meryl Streep stood, looking forlornly out to sea, in the film adaptation of John Fowles’ The French Lieutenant’s Woman. And art lovers are drawn to Lyme for both its beautiful scenery and for its wide range of art galleries.

Holiday makers will enjoy a family-friendly, sandy beach and an often-surprising micro-climate in the shelter of Lyme Bay. Marine Parade is a great place to walk, sit, enjoy the views and visit its small shops and eating places. Here the seafront facilities will soon benefit from restoration of the Marine Parade Shelters, ready for summer 2011. The town and surrounding area have many attractions and host a range of family-centred events, including a Jazz Festival, a Fossil Festival, Life Boat Week and a Regatta & Carnival Week.

For visitors who have had enough of the hurly-burly, and need to escape, there are many delightful places to stay to suit all budgets. You will be able to enjoy walks in the surrounding countryside and there are many opportunities to go out on a boat to view the glorious coastline from the sea or to fish in the clear waters of Lyme Bay.
