Close to 'Appletrees' runs the river, on its way through the town. Here you will meet Lyme's other residents - ducks!

About Charles and Liz Teall

My wife Liz and I live in the Cotswolds

Charles and Liz Teall purchased this cottage in 1957

Why Charles and Liz Teall chose Lyme Regis

My father bought Appletrees as a family holiday home back in the 1950's. As my boarding school was in Taunton it was useful as a holiday get-away. Now with our family grown up we are bringing our own grandchildren down to Appletrees.

What makes this cottage unique

Appletrees is ideally situated close to the beach, but away from the crowds in the oldest part of Lyme Regis.

Thank you for the chocolates. Fantastic weather and lovely to be able to walk into Appletrees and feel at home! (2nd Feb 07 – 4th Feb 07 Quinn - London)



Wonderful! Well equipped and loads of room and atmosphere. Lovely to come back to the end of a rainy Day!! (16th Feb 07 – 23rd Feb 07 Susan Brett, Annie Holley, Mandy Wall, Hazel Short - Bath)



Great time, Cottage very well equipped and cosy. Pizza place in alley off Broad Street is lovely. Lovely being by the seaside. (30th Mar 07 – 6th April 07 Linn, Riley Barrett - Ringwood)

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have found anything more perfect than Appletrees for myself & my other half to take my dad away on a well needed respite. It ticked all the boxes, thank you.

Beautiful, cosy & comfortable property in an amazing location with excellent range of facilities

  • 5 of 5

Although the occasion for us visiting Lyme was a sad one (we were attending the funeral of a dear family friend) our three-night stay at Appletrees was extremely enjoyable, it offered the perfect base for us to all be together as a family and make happy memories despite the sad reason for our visit. The property is in a perfect location, with gorgeous shops and galleries down each of the pretty streets leading off from it. The beach is less than 5 minutes walk away, about 10 mins for the Cob - extremely impressed with the location of this property and its close proximity to everything you could need during your visit. Lovely choice of restaurants, cafes, pubs and takeaways nearby also. The property itself is full of character, very tastefully decorated and has all the mod cons you could possibly want and then some! Having the annex is a lovely touch and offers extra space and privacy. The owner was also incredibly helpful providing us with lots of information and happily replied to my emails with any questions I had during our stay. Thank you for sharing Appletrees with us! We hope to visit again as a family and stay for longer next time! :)

Another fantastic stay in Lyme

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful family feel to this extensive and well appointed cottage. We entertained friends including a young family across our 7 days and found the boat house space really useful to this end. Plenty of everything that is important from crockery to seating to games and books. Would recommmend to all, best cottage yet in our four years of coming to Lyme.

Fantastic holiday home in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

We love Lyme Regis and are delighted to have found the ideal holiday home to stay in (especially as they accept pets). The property itself is suitable for a large family, with plenty of beds, great facilities and a lovely outdoor space for when the sun is shining. It's location is ideal for all the amenities Lyme Regis has to offer, we didn't need to use our car for the whole week!!

The the owners were extremely helpful with lots of information prior to our stay and were easily contactable should you require it.

We would highly recommend and cannot wait to stay there again.

Lyme Regis is the perfect place for a family holiday and Appletrees has been equipped particularly with families in mind. When our children were small, the short level walk to the beach was a huge advantage with its glorious bay of golden sand which curves around and joins the celebrated Cobb and its tiny harbour.Within easy reach of Lyme Regis lie many places of interest. For walkers, try any of the cliff top walks for spectacular coastal views, or travel west to the river Otter or east to fascinating Chesil beach, Abbotsbury Swannery or Portland. For children, try Cricket St. Thomas, Seaton Percorama or Farway Country park. Or, close to home the Seaton to Colyton tramway. The town offers a good golf course, many excellent restaurants and old fashioned pubs and the whole area abounds in traditional tea shops and antique shops. Further afield lie Exeter with its beautiful Cathedral, Dorchester with its iron-age hill fort and Corfe with its extraordinary ruined castle.

Golf: Lyme Regis Golf Club recognised as one of the finest golf courses in the south west.

The course occupies a cliff top site with coastal views towards Portland Bill and overlooks the historic town and world heritage site of Lyme Regis.
