On the outskirts of Lyme Regis, on the famous World Heritage Jurassic Coast and ¾ mile from the beach, scenic harbour and historic Cobb, these two properties; a 300 year old Coach House, and single storey thatched cottage offer excellent holiday accommodation individually or for for larger groups can be booked together to sleep up to 16 guests. The Coach House, which is located on one side of a beautiful high walled courtyard has charm and character, retaining an inglenook, beams, flagstones and one four-poster bedroom, and is ideal to accommodate two family groups or larger extended families. On the other side of the courtyard is Stable Cottage which is thatched, built from local stone and makes excellent family accommodation. Being on the outskirts of Lyme Regis, one can enjoy a stroll into Lyme itself and wander around the local shops, lanes, cafes, restaurants and along the picturesque Cobb, made famous by the film The French Lieutenant’s Woman, or simply chill out on the beach, fishing, boating, beach walking and of course fossil hunting. There is superb scenic coastal walking all along the Lyme Bay Coast, with views stretching to Portland Bill and far into Devon, and for those without a faint heart, the National Trust’s Golden Cap, southern England’s highest cliff is an exhilarating walk with spectacular scenery. One can visit the many popular seaside resorts from Weymouth in the east to Abbotsbury, West Bay, Charmouth, Seaton, Sidmouth and onto Exmouth in the west, or enjoy the beautiful Dorset countryside with its quaint villages, pubs and cream tea cafes. There are many historic houses to visit, including Forde Abbey and Gardens and Montacute House and Gardens, and family entertainment such as The Donkey Sanctuary, Crealy Adventure Park and inland Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum. Exeter Cathedral City is worth a day out to see the Cathedral itself, the catacombs, museums and shops. Shops and pubs ¼ mile.
