Single holiday let sleeping up to 6 guestsStep back in time to a more elegant age with this beautiful thatched Georgian cottage on the Lyme Regis sea front
Built in 1818, this charming character cottage has it all: a superb location just yards from the beach, chocolate box looks and inside, bags of period charm. The beautiful bay windows, low ceilings and gently sloping floors give the house an appropriately nautical feel. The sea views are magnificent and climbing the spiral staircase to find a bedroom under the eaves just adds to the romantic allure.
Illustrious guests have included Captain Marryat, the author of The Children of the New Forest and of many sea stories, the artist and caricaturist Cruikshank, and the poet Walter de la Mare.
The house is attractively and comfortably furnished and peppered with antiques. The kitchen has been newly fitted and there are 3 bedrooms, each with excellent beds and its own private bathroom/ensuite.
The cottages location means that it is an easy walk to the many pubs, restaurants, delis, and artisan shops in this attractive seaside town. There is plenty to do around Lyme Regis - fishing trips from the harbour, fossil hunting at Charmouth and Monmouth Beaches. Little ones will love exploring the rock pools in front of the cottage when the tide is out.
