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.

Comfy chalet

Great chalet to stay in Dorset. Very clean and comfortable. Location is perfect, right next to the sea. Ideal for a walking holiday right on your doorstep.

Brilliant place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week's stay at No 11 and would recommend it to anyone. It really is a home from home - with the addition of the sea and countryside on your doorstep. We were luck with the weather, and had some brilliant walks - both Seatown and West Bay well worth the walk over the top. Downhouse Farm does a fabulous English breakfast and cream teas. Lots of places to visit. All in all perfect for us and for the dog!

It was like a home from home

  • 5 of 5

Everything you needed for a relaxing break was there at the property. Was very clean and well appointed . We all remarked that we would happily live there. We picked the property due to the closeness of the beach but we were restricted walking wise due to our dog having an operation recently.

Excellent reason to go back

Great location however lanes down to the chalet were very hard to negotiate.

  • 3 of 5

We had a super holiday and great weather. The chalet ticked all the boxes for us, only criticism that it could have done with a spring clean ( dog hair and cobwebs a plenty).

Owner's Response: Hi Iain Yes the lane is a little tight I know but worth it when you get to the end. Thank you for bringing my attention to the state of the cleaning. I will get this rectified. I am sorry and I hope it didn't spoil things too much for you. I wish you had called me and I could have got it sorted immediately for you.
