A lovely warm and cosy house to stay in. It felt like home. Very comfortable and beautifully furnish
There were nine members of the family staying covering three generations. We loved the house and would enjoy staying there again. Lyme Regis is a super town to explore. Despite the weather lots of fossil hunting took place.
Thank you for your review, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Anchor Houses and we hope to welcome you back one day.
Fabulous house for a ladies get away!
We were a group of 9 Mums all getting away to Lyme Regis together! The house was beautiful, very clean and in a fabulous location just a stones throw away from the centre of Lyme Regis. We loved its character and design and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Sarah our host was so friendly and helpful and we will definitely be back!
Beautiful family home in fabulous location
We spent a very happy Christmas at this beautiful house. Sarah the housekeeper was amazing, so friendly and helpful. The house is everything you could wish for in a super location; overlooking a pretty square and within easy walking distance to the town and sea. Thoroughly recommended. Thank you for letting us stay.
Quaint house in prime location, but overpriced.
We (8 adults and a 7 month old baby) stayed at Anchor House for 5 nights in September 2016. We enjoyed our stay, and overall the house was generally well equipped and you can't fault the location. However, there are a few things we'd like to point out to others interested in the property.
1. My main complaint is that the property is very over priced for the overall standard of the interior (it is described as a luxury property - it really isn't). I have stayed in many self catering cottages all over the UK and so feel justified in saying this.
2. There is free parking for 3 cars which is quite unusual for Lyme properties - although it is a good 5 minutes walk from the property (up a hill).
3. Most of the doors didn't shut properly.
4. There are only two showers in the property - one in the main bathroom (which oddly has a door opening into the garden) and the other is a rather unappealing wet room with a saniflow toilet. We had problems with the wet room as the plughole blocked very easily (within a couple of days) which resulted in water seeping into the downstairs bedroom.
Overall, it is a nice property, it was clean, the rooms are large, the beds were comfy and it was pretty quiet. Unfortunately, given the price we paid, the house did not meet expectations.
We are glad you enjoyed the house, had a comfortable stay and appreciated the prime location. We do not in fact describe the property as luxury however it is very well-appointed and we feel presents good value for money when compared to other centrally located 5 bedroom properties in the area, with allocated parking for at least 3 cars.
It is a pity that the issues regarding the wet room and the door not shutting properly were not reported during your stay as we would have made efforts to resolve them for you immediately.
With regard to the parking, whilst Anchor House is fortunate to have its own parking, due to the natural topography of Lyme Regis, access is via hilly terrain.
The fact that there are 2 showers, is clearly indicated with our description reading: 2 shower rooms and one ensuite bathroom.
We very much appreciate your feedback and once again are delighted to hear that your stay was an enjoyable one!

Lovely House Good Location
Anchor House is a great house for a family holiday Located close to the beach and town centre it is spacious and very clean. Parking also comes with the house which is a bonus in Lyme Regis. Sarah the houskeeper is friendly, helpful and very welcoming. We would recommend this property
I would also like to recommend Antonios Italian Restaurant just two minutes away
Practically perfect in every way
This house is as lovely as the description and pictures show. Fantastic location with excellent parking facilities. Great reception from House Manager. Clean, tidy and well maintained. Lots of extras; tea, coffee, milk, toilet rolls etc to ensure that the holiday started straight away. Will definitely book again. Many thanks
Perfect for cuddling up by the wood burner (even more lovely watching the French Lieutenant's women) and exploring the stunning Jurassic coastline, which has been awarded world heritage status. As well as walking there is surfing, sailing & for more land locked tastes, local galleries & independent shops to look round. Sample all of the delicious restaurants a stone's throw away - this town and its environs is seriously foodie. (Amongst the varied restaurants are: famed Mark Hix's Oyster & Fish House, The Mill Tea & Dining Room which is in the Michelin Guide and is the Good Food Guide Regional Winner 2012, one of our favourites the fabulous Millside Restaurant, the River Cottage is near by with its cookery school and the River Cottage Canteen is in Axminster. All of these gastro delights have an emphasis on food that is sustainable, local and organic.
