About the property

5 bedroom, 2 bathroom, sleeps a maximum of 8

This delightful Georgian cottage is one of a picturesque row close to the church and overlooking a quiet square. It is very warm, comfortable and well equipped. Charming enclosed garden which is accessed upstairs through the cottage together with a separate annexe sleeping further 3 people. One of the best locations in Lyme; choice of two totally different beaches- one famous for fossils, each only 2/3 minutes walk. Shops just around the corner.

'Appletrees' is gas centrally heated and provided with everything you will need in the way of bed linen, towels, duvets, pans, crockery and cutlery. In the kitchen there is a 4 ring gas hob and built-in electric cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. The spacious dining area with long table and bench seats is open through to the lounge, where ample comfortable seating and a Smart 43" 4K TV creates a cosy family room. A door leads upstairs to bedrooms, bathroom and garden. The pretty patio garden is fully enclosed and is, equipped with table, chairs, benches and a pretty arbour with further seating.

Across the garden, which is only accessed through the cottage up some steep stairs, is the 'boathouse' which comprises of a double bedroom (with zip and link king-size bed and 32" Smart TV), a single bedroom, shower and laundry.

Lyme Regis is a lovely little town with something for everyone. Apart from the attractions of beach, harbour, pubs, cliff top rambles and golf course, the town itself is full of picturesque buildings and little alleyways. 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.

Lovely cottage, excellent facilities close to the heart of Lyme Regis

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to Lyme Regis was a great experience. Three generations together enjoying a seaside holiday. Appletrees was only a 5 minute walk from the seafront. The beach was very clean and had lifeguards onsite, the children, even grandma,loved playing on the sand and in the sea. The nearby attractions of fossil hunting; tram rides and Pecorama were great days out. Appletrees is a lovely welcoming cottage, the owner Charles is extremely helpful and we hope to return again soon

Perfect place for a multi-generational holiday

  • 4 of 5

Good to be an easy walk to sea front activities and close to all amenities. The property was well equipped and had very comfortable beds but the kitchen was small for catering for 7 people. We all like to cook. Netflix and wifi was very patchy but luckily we didn't use either much. Overall - jolly good.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Appletress is a Great house .Spotlessly clean and very well equiped. The garden is so pretty and relaxing ,accessed by steep steps from the kitchen or steep stairs through the house onto the landing. We had our breakfast outside every morning. All the bedrooms are comfortable ,the boathouse is lovely with a huge bed and a single room ,shower and utility with washing machine and tumble drier.perfect for my mum to stay in. The house is opposite a pretty little square and it is a flat,5min walk to the harbour and beginning of the shops. We loved Lyme Regis and would definitely stay at Appletress again .The owner was very helpful with all our enquiries.A great week.

Very impressed how comfortable the house is and quality facilities. Excellent Stay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Appletrees for one week and had a lovely stay. The house was very homely, comfortable and the facilities are to a very high standard. Appletrees is in the perfect location. We parked the car at the beginning of the holiday and didn't need to use it until it was time to come home. The house is ideally situated for a short walk to the beach and town main street. The patio garden we found was a great space to sit and chill in the evening. Having holidayed quite a few times in Lyme Regis I would say Appletrees comes at the top of my list of places to stay in the town. We would love to hire the house again in the future because there's lots to do in lovely Lyme.

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.
