*** PARKING FOR BOTH COTTAGES ***
Our lovely cottages are over 300 years old, so like almost all of the other historic centrally located properties in Lyme Regis built when the town relied almost solely on 'Poldark' style transport, there isn’t any dedicated carparking. However, there are short-stay parking bays available about 10metres away at the small library, as well as two large, well-lit public carparks about 3 minutes walk.
Many guests appreciate how well located Lyme Regis is for its coastal walks and leisure amenities and often manage to not return to their parked cars for their entire holiday.
