About the property

Wonderful house for families and friends to enjoy the beach - Jurassic Coast.

Camellia House is a much loved family holiday home and let. Just a short walk down Mill stream to the Town Beach and shops its a perfect get-away for a few days, a weekend or holiday.

Activities include fossil hunting on the UNESCO Heritage site, paddle boarding, fishing, beach and all the fun of the carnival and other activity weeks.

Camellia House gives privacy and convenience to all those that stay, with three double bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities.

Camellia House is a large home set in a sunny position - South West facing- with large patio area for outside entertaining (BBQ supplied). The 1930s house is set in a huge garden at the back of the town looking over the old town and Lyme Bay. Close to countryside walks and Uplyme valley for those that enjoy both rural countryside and seaside. The house is set in a quiet, tree-lined leafy lane, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The lawn is tended and provides a good deal of usable space. Kids have a swing from the old oak adults have a 'love swing seat' to while away the afternoon in the shade.

The people who have stayed say it's a wonderfully large, light and airy house, in a fabulous location. They love the open plan kitchen and living room. The terrace, with modern seating, is fantastic on a sunny day!

About Annabelle Williams

Hi, My name is Annabelle Ransome-Williams. I bought the house in 2012 and spend lots of time at Camellia House when I can. Its a great get- away for the family; the house is wonderfully welcoming. As the children have got older we use it less often and so want to share it with others.

I'm a professional working in the West Country.

Why Annabelle Williams chose Lyme Regis

Camellia House is a light, airy and spacious three double bedroom property - 1930s style but modified for open plan living downstairs. Its location is superb, just far enough from town to give you great views, quiet living and easy access to all the amenities. With a lovely walk to the beach, down Mill stream, you will see the old town including the Townmill.

Camellia House has a great garden and large patio give you all the space you need for entertaining and kids.

What makes this house unique

Secluded and tranquil, but only a short walk to the town and beach. Located in a tree lined, leafy street, offering you large spacious accommodation, garden and parking.

Perfect for large family gatherings, wedding parties or a quiet get-away for couples.

Loved the house, and the front garden, much fun and laughter in the sunshine. Also a great tv to watch the World Cup on!

Ideal for a family get together

  • 4 of 5

The house was great for 6 adults - each couple had ensuite. Plenty of crockery etc and well stocked with accessories in kitchen. The weather was brilliant so we could bbq fish caught on a Lyme Regis fishing trip. Especially appreciated the welcome fizz!

The property was clean and presentable. Very easy to find with good directions.

  • 3 of 5

There were a few things that need adressing:

Driveway resulted in damage to underside of 18 reg car as too steep and uneven. Door missing from ensuite to smallest bedroom. No shower curtain or screen to largest bedroom so shower very difficult to use. No maps or info left in house of the area.

Beautiful property, with great views

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely weekend with the girls. Inside, there's lots of space for a group of 6 to not be on top each other. The house is in an elevated position. (Be prepared for a few steep hills if you're walking and a very steep driveway if you're driving), with lovely views. It's a shame we were there in Feb as the front garden would be lovely in the warmer weather.
