Overview

About the property

Riverside cottage in Lyme Regis, Dorset - Peaceful location on the Wessex Ridgeway, With Terraced Garden And Sun Room Overlooking River

Overlooking the River Lym, Homestead is a wooden cabin built in 1915 and recently refurbished to a high standard. This cosy and comfortable home, retaining much of its original charm, provides a perfect base for holidays in Lyme Regis. Footpaths along the tranquil River Lym provide an attractive and easy walk to the seafront, shops, pubs and restaurants, or, heading upstream, walking routes in the beautiful surrounding countryside including the Wessex Ridgeway long distance route. The living room is cosy and comfortable, with a wood-burning stove. There is a sun room at the front of the property providing a lovely spot for relaxing, looking at the river, and watching the world go by. Off-road parking for a medium sized car is available on the property's driveway. Please note the access is awkward. Larger vehicles can be parked nearby. Parents of young children should note the terraced garden and proximity of the river. Friday changeover only April to October. Sorry we do not take dogs. Our website www.HomeSteadLymeRegis.co.uk

About Sheena Le Bas

We moved to Lyme Regis from rural Derbyshire in 2010 to be closer to family and the beautiful Dorset coast. Homestead is a family venture, owned by my mother and managed by myself and husband Ben with assistance from our three girls and various friends and family. This is an entirely new undertaking for our family and we are excited about sharing Homestead with visitors and giving more people the opportunity to visit this beautiful corner of the England.

Sheena Le Bas purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Sheena Le Bas chose Lyme Regis & West Dorset

Homestead is only 5 minutes from our own home in Lyme Regis; a place that we love sharing with friends and family when they come to visit.

Beautifully presented property in a lovely location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely property, beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. The parking access was a little difficult but then parking in Lyme is not easy anyway.

The location was lovely with the river Lym running in front of the property and only a short walk to the beach and amenities.

There was also a lovely riverside walk up to Uplyme. We enjoyed a relaxing week and spent time sitting in the conservatory watching the world go by. Thanks Sheena.

Lovely location and a lovely place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was more than we could have hoped, everything we needed and more. Made for a really lovely break, with the added bonus of a really cosy log fire. A real home from home. Location was just a short scenic walk along the river into Lyme. Perfect.

Fantastic, clean & well located property

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house; well furnished; clean & tidy. Everything thought about! Lovely little bolt-hole, close to the centre of Lyme! Parking challenging.....but easy to leave the car for a week & potter! A real break from the Hurley-burley of every day life! The kids loved it too! Thanks Sheena & Fiona. We will be back! Xxx

Very good.

  • 5 of 5

This property is just as described, very clean and tidy, it is a lovely cottage in a lovely location.

If you want peace and quiet this is the place for you.

Every thing that you need is there. Lovely walk down by the river into the town, and if you can get past the Mill Bakery without sampling

their cakes, pastries, bread, or breakfast, your a better man than I am.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this property to anyone.

A really good find!

  • 4 of 5

So glad I happened across this little place for our holiday. It was perfect for the 3 of us. A cute, clean and bright cabin with all the essentials you need for a week's self catering and more! The supply of kitchen roll, cling film, foil, tea bags, dishwashers tablets etc (and ice in the freezer!) was unexpected and so helpful to have on arrival and through the week. Just a short, pretty walk to the town centre along the river. Our only niggle was that the sofa wasn't very comfy for those wet nights in, I appreciate it's an extra sofabed but for a husband with a bad back it was hard for him to get comfy!!

We really enjoyed two visits to LBK for excellent burgers and the Penny Black cafe (down the side of the Post Office around the back of an antiques centre)for lunch & cake. So much to see and do in Dorset and Somerset, this is a great base. Although Wi-Fi would be handy for looking up places to go there is a good supply of local literature plus books & games at the house. It was so nicely decorated, felt so homely and a little retro. Would recommend!

There is a 10 minute walk to Lyme Regis beach with its picturesque promenade, harbour and famous Cobb. Part of the beach is sandy and ideal for families and for swimming; shingle covers other parts of the beach. The coast to the east and west of Lyme Regis is famous for its fossils, although care is needed especially near the soft cliffs.
