Description

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Lyme Regis - Anchor House

5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and lovely sunny garden

Anchor House is exceptionally well-positioned in the heart of old Lyme and newly restored to a high standard. Facing south towards the sea, it looks out on the garden of St George's Square and is just three minute's level walk from the beach, with Lyme's excellent Town Mill Bakery close by for morning croissants.

Anchor House features a large, well-equipped, family sized kitchen with an open fire-place, a smart sitting room and a secluded, sunny garden.

There are five bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom, and two shower rooms. A fine old spiral staircase leads to the upstairs rooms, all of which look out over charming rooftops to the sea and the Cobb.

The interior has been thoughtfully designed by Caroline Conran to create an enchanting seaside home.

Accommodation consists of the following:

Ground floor:

Large kitchen/dining room with open fireplace.

Double bedroom with TV and shower room - suitable for children, grandparents or seniors.

1st Floor:

Sitting room with TV

Double bedroom

Bunk bedroom for 2 with washbasin

Shower room

2nd Floor:

Master bedroom with en-suite bathroom

Quaint house in prime location, but overpriced.

  • 3 of 5

We (8 adults and a 7 month old baby) stayed at Anchor House for 5 nights in September 2016. We enjoyed our stay, and overall the house was generally well equipped and you can't fault the location. However, there are a few things we'd like to point out to others interested in the property.

1. My main complaint is that the property is very over priced for the overall standard of the interior (it is described as a luxury property - it really isn't). I have stayed in many self catering cottages all over the UK and so feel justified in saying this.

2. There is free parking for 3 cars which is quite unusual for Lyme properties - although it is a good 5 minutes walk from the property (up a hill).

3. Most of the doors didn't shut properly.

4. There are only two showers in the property - one in the main bathroom (which oddly has a door opening into the garden) and the other is a rather unappealing wet room with a saniflow toilet. We had problems with the wet room as the plughole blocked very easily (within a couple of days) which resulted in water seeping into the downstairs bedroom.

Overall, it is a nice property, it was clean, the rooms are large, the beds were comfy and it was pretty quiet. Unfortunately, given the price we paid, the house did not meet expectations.

This house is as lovely as the description and pictures show. Fantastic location with excellent parking facilities. Great reception from House Manager. Clean, tidy and well maintained. Lots of extras; tea, coffee, milk, toilet rolls etc to ensure that the holiday started straight away. Will definitely book again. Many thanks

Lovely house in a wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

Three bedrooms have views of the channel, the house is in a perfect location, with two restaurants and a pub less than a 100 yards away. Two minutes from the Water Mill and five minutes from the beach and high street. Checking in and out was so easy, house was in great condition and Sarah gave us such a friendly welcome.

Fantastic Spacious Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week staying in Anchor House, right in the centre of Lyme Regis. The accommodation had lots of character and was ample for our three families including four children. Car parking was a bonus in this busy little place too. Everything was catered for in the property with a delightful garden equipped with BBQ, table and chairs. Location couldn't be better with lots of eateries within walking distance. We intend on coming back again and wouldn't hesitate in booking Anchor House again.

Fantastic house and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Anchor House in Lyme Regis. The house was beautiful, clean and very well equipped. It slept 10 of us very comfortably. We spent most of our time in the lovely kitchen on the ground floor with big open fire. The house is very conveniently located to stroll down to the beach / sea front and local shops. The house keeper was very friendly and helpful and even made us some brownies for our arrival. I would highly recommend this property and we hope to visit again in the future.

Perfect for cuddling up by the wood burner (even more lovely watching the French Lieutenant's women) and exploring the stunning Jurassic coastline, which has been awarded world heritage status. As well as walking there is surfing, sailing & for more land locked tastes, local galleries & independent shops to look round. Sample all of the delicious restaurants a stone's throw away - this town and its environs is seriously foodie. (Amongst the varied restaurants are: famed Mark Hix's Oyster & Fish House, The Mill Tea & Dining Room which is in the Michelin Guide and is the Good Food Guide Regional Winner 2012, one of our favourites the fabulous Millside Restaurant, the River Cottage is near by with its cookery school and the River Cottage Canteen is in Axminster. All of these gastro delights have an emphasis on food that is sustainable, local and organic.
