About Kim Harvey

We bought No 11 in 2004 as a little asbestos shack. We demolished it and put up the building as it is today. It has been constructed using the most energy efficient means and a specification that lifeboat houses use to combat the elements. Its old shack had history dating back to the second world war when it used to be the tea place for the home guard whilst guarding the shores.

Kim Harvey purchased this chalet in 2004

Why Kim Harvey chose Lyme Regis & West Dorset

We came across the auction details in the local press. We came to look at the site and were so taken with the area we decided to buy. The plot we picked felt best served to fit in the type of building we wanted to erect. We have stayed here in all weathers and it is as idyllic in each season. There is always so much to explore without even having to get the car out.

What makes this chalet unique

Its position to the Jurassic Coast I would say is the best benefit. The beach is never crowded so you can always guarantee plenty of space. The views of the surrounding countryside as well is amazing especially if you are into wildlife.

Guestbook comments from the owner

When we reached the chalet we seemed to immediately relax. We will return.

We arrived in the dark so did not see the beautiful surroundings of the sea and cliffs till morning. It is an idyllic place. We have walked for miles and experienced some truly lovely sights and food. Will not hesitate to come back.

Beautiful place lovely chalet

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband really enjoyed our stay in Eype. The chalet was clean and decorated nicely. It was a short walk along the costal path to either West Bay or Saltford. We would defiantly book again. Both our dogs really enjoyed it as well and we were not short of places to take them - most pubs allow dogs - very dog freidly place.

Comfortable, peaceful and well-equipped

  • 4 of 5

A three night stay as my birthday treat bought us to Eype once again. We come every year as its my favourite place and has been since I first came in 1983. Always makes us feel so relaxed being by the sea and those spectacular cliffs.

This was our first stay at No 11 and we were impressed with the decor and spaciousness. The only negative point was the feeble shower in the beautifully furnished bathroom.

First stop, a walk over Thorncombe Beacon to The Anchor pub then evening meal at The New Inn, Eype. Enjoyed some lovely walks from the door and drive over to Charmouth for a muddy ramble ending with a nice lunch in one of the towns charming tea shops.

Kim the owner was easy to contact to sort issue with towels and also kindly returned my jumper that I left in the wardrobe.

This haven of tranquility is becoming more and more popular thanks in part to Broadchurch and I hope I'm still coming here in another 30 years time!

Really brilliant but ?

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location and the chalet but --The shower didn't work, and as mother of 2 young children + 2 young dogs i was unable to open the doors on a glorious weekend unless i put them all on lead first as there is no "private" space. I think there is room for improvement. I will go back but its hard work.

Superb location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a short break at the property. It is in a great location right on the coastal path. Dogs are welcome on the beach all year round which is a bonus. The cottage was extremely well equipped and we didn't want for anything. It was clean and spacious and we will definitely be back. Thank you

The beach is no more than 100yds walk from chalet. Eype beach is a shingle beach with lots of interesting things to find. Fossils if you are really lucky and lots of rock pools. Fishing is also good off of the beach. Dogs are welcome here all year round. There is also a beach at West Bay, Seatown and Charmouth.


Eype village is a short walk away, whereas Bridport the local Market Town is a 5 minute drive or can be walked in around 20 mins. There is a vibrant arty theme to Bridport which can be seen at the markets held on a Wednesday and Saturday in the town. There is a great Farm shop at Washingpool a 10 minute drive away. Downe House out door cafe can be found either by walking across the hills or a few minute drive away. Cakes and scones their speciality.

Further Details:

West Bay has a leisure centre and amusements as well as boat rides. You can also take a Boat trip to Lyme Regis for the day. Lyme Regis is well worth a visit as is Bere and Sidmouth.

This area is great for walkers and mountain bikers alike. You can go left to Portland, Chesil, Weymouth and to Poole beyond or go right to Lyme, Exeter and beyond. For Artists there is a wealth of amazing countryside and sea views to paint. For the Foodies there is seafood in abundance. Hive Beach at Burton Bradstock, Adam Hicks Restaurant in Lyme Regis and many more.
