EXCLUSIVE CHARACTER COTTAGE FOR TWO, WONDERFUL VIEWS, GARDENS, POOL

Lyme Regis Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps a maximum of 2. Regret no pets.

A 1920's style cottage of great character and charm, 1 1/2 miles from the sea in West Dorset with views to Lyme Bay at Charmouth and Lyme Regis. One double bedroom, ensuite bathroom, kitchen and dining/sitting room, open fireplaces, Digital TV, DVD, and video, bookshelves, heating, private south facing garden, with access to a conservatory adjoining a large terrace and a 12 meter swimming pool, private entrance and parking. We now have free good quality WIFI internet available in the cottage suitable for all laptops

Upstairs there is a comfortable bedroom with a king-size double bed (or two singles), storage heater, an open fireplace, and a bay window which overlooks the garden. This is ensuite with a substantial bathroom and WC. A large oak door opens out onto a veranda (seen in the upper part of the photograph) from which there are fine views over the lower or Evening Terrace, swimming pool, and the formal gardens (which cover 2 1/2 acres), to Lyme Bay in the distance. Adjoining the Evening Terrace is an old fashioned Conservatory with large curved windows (the building to the right in the photograph). You can see the most wonderful sunsets from the Evening Terrace, underlined by the pool and gardens, with the pinpoints of lights appearing at Charmouth and Lyme Regis.

General Area: For walkers and sightseers, there are many places of interest within very easy reach of the property in this outstandingly beautiful part of England. These include the National Trust trails and preserved sites such as the Golden Cap Estate, Lambert Castle, Lewisdon Hill and Hardown Hill. There are many picturesque unspoilt villages in the area. The nearest beach is at St Gabriel's Gap, some 1 1/2 miles distant. The coastline, which is famous for it's rich fossiliferous rocks, now has World Heritage status. Within half an hours drive you can reach the tropical gardens of Abbotsbury, and in that region and inland, Thomas Hardy country. The town of Lyme Regis, famous for its picturesque harbour and 'The Cobb', and Bridport a busy and prosperous market town still with fishing interests, are each about 10 minutes away by car.

Perfect Winter Break

  • 5 of 5
The Tallet is a superb character cottage for two. The building is unique and absolutely charming. The owners are lovely and were very helpful upon arrival, and then completely unobtrusive for our stay. The internal stairs are indeed very steep and require careful negotiation, but just add to the sense that you are staying somewhere very special! The fire was lovely and kept us warm - but do pack a blanket if you're coming in the winter to snuggle up in.

We had glorious weather in January and enjoyed roaming the gardens and a trip to Lyme Regis for fossil hunting. The cottage is very private, with it's own 'secret garden' and the grounds, pool and conservatory are absolutely stunning.

We can't recommend The Tallet highly enough. A perfect romantic winter break for two - so much so, we got engaged here :)

Wonderfull

  • 5 of 5
We had a few wonderfull days in March09. The Tallet is as lovely as it looks in the pictures even at this early time of year. Stairs inside are quite narrow and have a tight curve but alternative route up outside (under cover) which I'm sure is fine in the summer. Log fire not necessary as heating is fine, but was lovely to sit by in the evenings. And there's a cast iron bath and plenty of hot water for a recouperative bath after a strenuous walk. hemain house gardens are lovely for a gentle stroll, or to sit and read or conemplate in with lovely sea views

Location good for walking the rugged Dorset coastal path, or visiting Lyme Regis, Dorchester etc. Good bus route through village, he x53 runs from Exeter to Bournemouth along the A35, plus other local service no 31,so once you get there leave the car and walk or bus it.

Good reasonably priced food at nearby pubs.

We can't wait to go back

A perfect little gem!

  • 5 of 5
This little cottage was absolute perfection - beautifully decorated, complete attention to detail, very clean, well stocked, very comfortable and with gracious hosts. We were able to travel all around Somerset and into Devon and Cornwall. The small villages close by and Bridport down the road supplied all our needs. We loved the cottage but someone with difficulties climbing stairs or getting into a tub might find it not suitable.
The gardens surrounding the cottage and the big house were beautiful - and we had our own little garden and pool to look out onto every morning and evening. For the cool evenings, there was a fireplace and a big pile of wood to burn. We could not have made a more perfect choice.

Romantik und viel Ruhe: ein südenglisches Kleinod

  • 5 of 5
Die bisherigen Bewertungen sind bei weitem nicht übertrieben: wir haben zwei wundervolle und erholsame Wochen in Cottage, Garten und Pool verbracht! Obwohl sehr klein, ist das Haus aber für zwei Personen gemütlich und vollständig ausgestattet (sogar mit Backformen!). Alles ist in bestens gepflegtem Zustand, die Vermieter sind nett und hilfsbereit und das Haus liegt verkehrsgünstig. Direkt im Ort gibt es zwar keine Lokale o.ä., aber dafür Moore's Biscuit Bakery, die neben regionalen Produkten (Käse u.ä.) dienstags und donnerstags frisch gebackenes Brot anbietet. Außerdem ist der nächste Waitrose in Bridport und in Seatown lässt es sich herrlich im Sonnenuntergang auf dem Kliff zu Fish 'n' Chips ein frisch gezapftes Ale trinken. Cheers!

In an area of outstanding natural beauty close to the National Trust Golden Cap Estate 1 1/2 miles from the World Heritage Site coastline famous for its Jurassic period dinosaur and ammonite fossils and exposed in the cliffs and at low tide. Behind the cottage is another National Trust area, Hardown Hill, which offers impressive views in all directions. Ideal for walkers of all types, but most of the beauty spots can also be reached by car.

Notes:
'The Tallet' means wheelwright's shop. The original building dates from the 18th century and was converted in the 1920's in Arts & Crafts style. It is situated amid lush Dorset countryside in the grounds of a larger property known as Littlehill, but is separate, and has its own access and parking. The cottage has recently been completely modernised to luxury standard. The accommodation is for 2 people and comprises, on the ground floor, an open plan modern kitchen at one end, partly separated by a small internal staircase from the living/dining area with an open fireplace, TV and video, storage heater, and bookshelves: the floor is old pine wood blocks. A patio door opens out onto a south facing stone terrace and small completely private garden with a pond. Below is another terrace the Tuscan Terrace with terracotta tiles which open out to a large conservatory also for guests use and the 12 meter swimming pool.
