Guestbook comments from the manager

It is nicely done out and comfortable. The house is so convenient for the beach and shops. We can recommend No.31. Thank you so much for getting the fridge freezer. It was essential for us.

The house and garden have proved to be the right thing for four adults and four children. The beach was brilliant for us all - good for swimming or playing and using our dinghy.

Lyme Regis
Car: not necessary

Easily accessible, and only three hours from London and the Midlands, Lyme Regis is away from it all, nestling in the unspoilt West Dorset countryside. Part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site, and surrounded by areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Lyme Regis, the “Pearl of Dorset”, is famous for its fossils, its historic old town, its Cobb and its beaches. And now it's a destination for food lovers, with Hix Oyster and Fish House in the town, and River Cottage HQ and Axminster Canteen both close by.

The old town, dating back to the 14th century, is an ideal place to walk and explore the local shops, art galleries, newly replanted gardens with myriad places to stop to eat and drink. Built around the River Lym, Lyme has its own working Water Mill, recently refurbished to include an electricity generator. Lyme Regis is very special in that it is probably the smallest town in the country to boast its own cinema, theater, and museum.

The Cobb attracts visitors – not just for its visual splendor and its magnificent naval architecture, but also for its connections with great literature. Indeed, people come from all over the world to see the steps where Louisa Musgrove fell in Jane Austen’s Persuasion; or to see where Meryl Streep stood, looking forlornly out to sea, in the film adaptation of John Fowles’ The French Lieutenant’s Woman. And art lovers are drawn to Lyme for both its beautiful scenery and for its wide range of art galleries.

Holiday makers will enjoy a family-friendly, sandy beach and an often-surprising micro-climate in the shelter of Lyme Bay. Marine Parade is a great place to walk, sit, enjoy the views and visit its small shops and eating places. Here the seafront facilities will soon benefit from restoration of the Marine Parade Shelters, ready for summer 2011. The town and surrounding area have many attractions and host a range of family-centred events, including a Jazz Festival, a Fossil Festival, Life Boat Week and a Regatta & Carnival Week.

For visitors who have had enough of the hurly-burly, and need to escape, there are many delightful places to stay to suit all budgets. You will be able to enjoy walks in the surrounding countryside and there are many opportunities to go out on a boat to view the glorious coastline from the sea or to fish in the clear waters of Lyme Bay.

What a lovely cottage, well equipped and comfortable. Great access to all areas of Lyme Regis

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family weekend here. The house worked well for 6 and was well equipped. The garden looked great although we only had a quick look as it was November and a little chilly. Would love to come back in the summer months to make the most of it.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Property exceptionally clean, well presented and equipped. Enough seating and space. The 2 double bedrooms are particularly lovely. The twin room was a tad cold as only a fan heater available. Enjoyed the location as can access everything from here. A great weekend in a great property. Would highly recommend Bonfire weekend as there's a Big Bonfire and fireworks on the beach, but book restaurants as all were fully booked ! Also be aware that most eateries stop at 9pm.

Great location, bathrooms and stairs need refurb

  • 4 of 5

Great for walking out fossil hunting in both directions. Property getting a bit tatty: refitting the bathrooms and painting the stairs fit new carpet would make it far more welcoming. Kitchen heater didn't work.

Owner's Response: Thanks for highlighting the need for a touch up. We've got this work booked for early November when things get quieter in Lyme. It's still a lovely time to come and experience some wild weather on the Cobb!

Really good stay

  • 4 of 5

It was home from home. The place is literally round the corner from The Mill, the fossil museum, the Museum of Lyme Regis and the beach. It's also opposite a pub and several restaurants. The place itself is cosy and all the heaters work! The rooms are a fair size and there's a great garden with a view outside. We didn't get the TV or the CD player to work but we weren't really there to watch TV. Wi-fi connection was excellent and we never had a problem finding space in the car park. It's better to book a permit with the owner as it's cheaper than paying day by day. We were a bunch of friends staying and it was great.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time. Not sure what happened with the tv and cd as both working now. Thanks Mark

Lovely house close to beach, cafes and town centre

  • 5 of 5

There were seven of us staying in Teal House, including two children aged 4 and 6yrs. The house was plenty big enough for us and the garden was an added bonus. It was great being so close to the beach where the children had lots of fun collecting fossils. There were many good places to eat, including an amazing bakery just down the road, where we bought pastries and croissants on more than one occasion during our stay! Although we have been to Lyme Regis before, we are all agreed that Teal House has been the best house so far for location and comfort.
