The house is suitable for elderly or infirm on the ground floor and upper garden terrace, however there is no ground floor bedroom. Children a very welcome and guests have said how much their children have enjoyed playing in the garden with the large bamboos and stream but please note the garden is on different levels and the stream does run through the garden so very young children will need to be supervised.

Family get together

  • 5 of 5

Pitt White House was the perfect venue to celebrate a special family occasion.There were nine of us, including three children who loved playing hide and seek in the fantastic garden.We loved the fact that there was so much space. We found everything to be very clean and comfortable and so well equipped - I have never seen so many pots and pans in one kitchen!! We were blessed with good weather and enjoyed breakfasts on the terrace.We had a wonderful time - so much better than staying in a hotel. I would definitely recommend this property.

Fab Week !!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family have just had the most amazing time at this property , we travelled from Cornwall , Kent & Cheshire , the location was spot on for us , with a lovely cross country walk to the town , or the other direction to The Talbot Arms.

Property was very clean & gardens well looked after , we had fun exploring all the little paths within the grounds & sitting by the stream at the bottom.

We had contact at any time with the owners by email & Pip the housekeeper greeted us on arrival , along with a tour of the house.

We would certainly recommend this property for a family/friends get together , the house is massive with everything you would need rain or shine.

It was Lyme Regis Carnival week , so plenty to do in town or the property is beautiful just to chill/relax.

We all had Sunday Lunch at The Harbour , food was very good & really pleasant staff even though is was so busy.

It was so lovely for all the family to be together , especially spending time with our 7 month old Grandson.

Brilliant week & hope to do it again soon

Fab stay at Pitt White House

  • 5 of 5

Pitt White House is a great place to have a group gathering. There is plenty of room and the house is very comfy and homely. The gardens are lovely and it is as good as it looks in the photos. We used the wood burner in the lounge in the evening which was lovely, and the Aga in the kitchen keeps it nice and warm.

We all had a great holiday and enjoyed staying in the house, as well as going out on trips to the surrounding beach side villages. We walked down to Lyme which is such a lovely place, and also had a meal in the local pub which was fantastic.

We would recommend Pitt White House to anyone wanting to stay in a relaxing house and grounds, and it is a perfect place to chill out.

Very young children would need supervision in the garden as it has some steep slopes and a stream running through the centre of it, however, if children are older, they will love exploring the garden.

We hope to be able to stay again soon.

Heavenly Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas week there with our extended family and it was perfect. The house had every imaginable facility and was not only clean and in good order but the owners had provided a tall decorated Christmas tree with lights and other Christmas decorations which says a lot about them. The huge kitchen with its Aga, two dishwashers, washing and drying machines and so much crockery and cutlery was ideal. The lounge was so spacious and we loved the wood burning fire there which was a delight in the evenings as the family congregated there. The dining room easily accommodated 16 and the bedrooms were comfortable and well fitted out as were the ensuite and separate bathrooms.. My wife and I chose the little "penthouse" on the top floor with the delightful corner bath and fully equipped kitchen which was wonderful as we could have early morning tea and even breakfast in bed on occasion. The garden was just wonderful our only regret being that we would have liked to have seen it in summer with all its little nooks complete with garden furniture which would be ideal for a peaceful relaxation on a summers day. Our two young dogs loved chasing one another around running down to the river across the bridge and up the other side. The rural riverside path down to Lyme Regis was such a pleasant walk which the dogs also enjoyed. All in all we loved our stay there and have no hesitation in recommending the house to anyone else.

The unique and captivating charms of Lyme Regis have been attracting visitors for hundreds of years.

A busy trading centre in Medieval times and one of the most important ports on the south coast in Tudor times, the town became a popular sea spa in the 18th century attracting Royalty and inspiring poets, writers and painters. Turner and Whistler both painted here and Jane Austen wrote Persuasion after her visit in the early 1800’s. More recently the town featured in John Fowles’ The French Lieutenant’s Woman.

Lyme Regis sits at the heart of the spectacular and dramatic Jurassic Coast. This coastline is England’s first natural World Heritage Site and Lyme is an ideal base from which to explore its diverse geology and abundant wildlife. The River Lym, from which the town takes its name, winds lazily through the maze of narrow streets and shops and as you wander through the town you will find traditional pubs and tea rooms, modern restaurants, galleries and historic buildings.
