About the property

Centrally Located 4 Bedroom House With Sea Views

55 Church St

A Grade 2 Listed cottage. It has 4 bedrooms (2 doubles, twin singles and a bunk bed). 2 x bathrooms, situated within a 3min walk of the town centre and beaches. It sleeps up to 8 with a full bathroom on the 1st floor, a wet room on the ground floor. It has its own garden with bbq facilities. The kitchen is fully fitted with easy access to the dinning room, in the lounge there is TV, DVD player and a selection of toys for the younger guests. There is WiFi included in the house.

Welcome to Lyme Regis, (the Pearl of Dorset). Lyme is a Georgian town set on the picturesque Dorset coastline. Lyme Regis received its royal charter in 1824 by King Edward 1. In the 13th Century Lyme developed into an important port, due to the now famous Cobb. It was such a busy port that up until 1780 it was bigger than that the port of Liverpool.

Lyme Regis is twinned with St George in Bermuda the link being one of the town’s most famous sons, Admiral Sir George Somers ( (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) r George was an Elizabethan seafarer, MP, military leader and founder of Bermuda (The Somers Isles), England’s first Crown Colony.

There are always things going on in the town, a sample would be Life Boat Week, Regatta and Carnival Week, Fossil Festival, Candles on the Cobb, Lantern parade and hundreds more. We have 3 immediate beaches, the main beach by the Cobb is sandy and as you go further away it is shingle, Monmouth Beach is mainly shingle and so is back beach behind the church but has fantastic rock pools. Lyme is also famous for its fossils, with Mary Anning a pioneer in fossil hunting and found the first Ichthyosaur skeleton on Blue Lias Cliffs.

Lyme has also had its share of famous writers, with Jane Austen, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Hilaire Belloc, G.K Chesterton and J R R Tolkien who spent several holiday here. Writer John Fowles lived in Lyme for many years and based his most famous work “The French Lieutenants Woman”, in Lyme.

We have many boutique shops, cafes and restaurants in Lyme and of course some excellent fish and chip shops (the best of which in my opinion is in Coombe St). Culturally vibrant, Lyme has its own theatre, two museums, galleries and a listed Art Deco Cinema (this unfortunately has suffered from a fire and is closed until rebuilt). We can direct you to some very good alternatives.

Lyme is known as “The Pearl of Dorset “, it is also an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a World Heritage Site. This entails there is plenty of wonderful walks, with fantastic scenery and some fascinating walks along the beaches.

We also have Hugh Fearnley Whittingstalls River Cottage within a taxi ride away, this is very busy and would need booking in advance, along with Hix Restaurant a very poplar place run by Celebrity Chef Mark Hix.

There is a 3% charge if paying by credit card or paypal

Very good

  • 4 of 5

We loved the property and it had everything we needed for a family. We were pleasantly surprised to find that size of the rooms were larger than the site photographs appeared. We were particularly impressed with the water pressure for the showers etc. It was also really convenient for the sea front and local shops. The rooms at the front were sometimes noisy because of the traffic. The amount of traffic on the narrow road also made vehicular access to the property awkward for loading and unloading, but the long stay car park was only five minutes walk away (uphill!).

Well equipped home from home.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely comfortable house within walking distance of the beach and town centre. We had 3 generations in our party and a small dog and yet we still had plenty of room to spread out and have some peace and quiet. Prompt communications with the owner when booking. Highly recommended.

Excellent house lovely owner

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed in this house in Lyme. The house is always cleana and tidy. The garden although not big is perfect for a BBQ and bit of outside space away from the beach. If weve ever had a problem the owner has sorted it as quickly as she could. Will defaintely be going back this year.

A spoilt memory

  • 1 of 5

Overall, the property is more or less as described. It's positioned on the main road so is quite noisy in rush hour but minutes away from everything. HOWEVER BEWARE, we had a really bad experience when we asked for our deposit back. We were sent a list of things that the owner claimed we had done wrong. All fabricated. I have rented holiday homes for over 20 years, often twice a year, and not once has this ever happened to me. The owner was very attacking in our email exchange and she only offered a tiny amount back out of the not insignificant deposit. As the owner has been so unkind to us I would point out that the house was not perfect, for example, there was an ant infestation in the kitchen that got in our food, it was evident that the owner knew about this as an any killer was delivered a day or more after we had arrived, the garden was overgrown and had dead birds and the wet room was smelly and there was large fungus growing on the squeezy mop. If you do decide to go ahead and book I would advise you take photos of how you left the place when you leave and be very careful. The experience spoilt the memories for us all.

Owner's Response: This guest left human excrement on the wall, broken furniture, 8 bags of rubbish, stains on the mattresses and furnishings, the redecoration and cleaning costs further exacibated the finiancial burden of the squaller thi family left the house in, thus resulting in not having deposit returned and a soliciters instruction to recover costs.
