Overview

About the property

Uplyme – Village location 1.5 miles from seaside town of Lyme Regis and beach.

A delightful, holiday property called Stamps Cottage newly-built on the grounds of the old post office in Uplyme. This quiet village is within walking distance of Lyme Regis (try the riverside walk) with its picturesque beach and harbour. The cottage has off street parking for two cars and is very close to the local bus stop.

Uniquely, Stamps Cottage can be rented with a beach hut which has deck chairs, sunbeds and tea and coffee facilities. Located on Monmouth Beach, the beach hut is a calm spot to unwind after a walk along the Southwest Coastal Path, a swim, fossil hunting or a fishing trip. At the rear of the beach hut is a car park and toilets.

Stamps Cottage has been furnished with the finest furniture and everything is brand new in 2015.

About Richard or Rachel Davey

We were married in 2014 and our wedding reception was four doors down in the field of the Talbot Arms pub. We love our cottage and plan to move here permanently when we retire. We hope you’ll love it too!

Richard or Rachel Davey purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Richard or Rachel Davey chose Uplyme

With its mild, temperate climate Lyme Bay is an ideal winter as well as summer holiday destination. The weather is temperate, by British standards and far warmer than many other places at a similar latitude owing to the influence of the Gulf Stream.

The Good Beach Guide provides ratings for all the beaches along the Lyme Bay coast and most achieve the highest award. You will find good food to eat at excellent seafood restaurants including Hix and River Cottage, welcoming village pubs and tasty fish and chip takeaways.

Lyme Bay is part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Many of the earliest discoveries of prehistoric remains were made by Mary Anning, the 19th century fossil hunter, in the area surrounding Lyme Regis. Today, cliff faces and rock falls continue to expose fossils and reveal up to 250 million years of history.

The wonderful South West Coast Path follows the contours of the Triassic and Jurassic coast from Studland in east Dorset, around Lyme Bay in west Dorset and east Devon, then along the south Devon and Cornwall coasts, back through north Devon to Minehead in Somerset.

What makes this cottage unique

Stamps Cottage is located in a lovely part of England and is quick and easy to get to from the M5. This newly-built property in Uplyme is just fours doors down for the pub which is the heart of the village and the coastal town of Lyme Regis is within walking distance. Uniquely, Stamps Cottage has its own optional Beach Hut on Monmouth Beach where you can complete your seaside holiday.

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage full of character, well furnished and spotlessly clean. The beach hut is a bonus. Have no hesitation in recommending it. Rachel was extremely helpful too. Will be back!

We enjoyed our stay and it was close to everywhere we wanted to visit, walking down to Lyme Regis was fine but walking back need to be quite fit and able to manage it as it was extremely steep.

The cottage was very clean and well equipped but found having only one toilet very inconvenient. Also there were no lights to the front door so coming in was a little dangerous negotiating the steps in the dark .

Were amused by all the little notes every where. Hilda Heeley.

Owner's Response: We find that elderly people don't always research the detail on the advert. There is a floorplan on the photos and property details which shows we only have the one toilet. Infact we took the second one out to create more living space as this is a cottage we felt living space was more important that 2 toilets in a small dwelling. There is a light outside the front door which illuminates the front steps. You just need to switch it on!?? The notes help you to work things like the heating. When we didn't have the notes we were contacted regularly and so as you didn't contact us during your stay we assume they worked? Finally the picturesque River Walk is a fantastic feature of our village location and it's flat. this is unusual for Lyme as the town itself is set on a very steep hill. We rarely get 3 star reviews and feel really disappointed with yours as we take pride in our property and are clear about the experience you will get. I know your son selected this for you but perhaps a little more research before you select a property is necessary in future. Best wishes Rachel and Richard Davey

Stamps - Where did the time go?

  • 5 of 5

We had a really enjoyable bank holiday weekend break at Stamps. It was perfectly located for our trip to River Cottage and then sauntering down to Lyme Regis. One slight criticism was the absence of the usual introductory info on local amenities etc but that is me being harsh. The highlight was the beach hut which was fantastic. Loved the bed in there just right for a post fish n chip snooze. Sorry we didn't leave a message in the visitors book we ran out of time!
