Had a great stay in the cottage. We did lots of walking even in the rain. Love sitting on the beach at Beer, even in the rain. Could have done with some way of drying off towels and boots as sun not out every day. Great place to stay. Jacqui, Tony and Smeagel (the dog). Milton Keynes

Lyme cottage is a great base for the stunning Jurassic Coastal towns and sights. West Bay beach was great for kids and dogs as was Charmouth and Lyme Regis, especially when the tide was out. Becky Falls is worth a visit and a speedboat ride is great for an adrenaline rush. Main road and access to the cottage trickier than expected. We are lucky to live in a quiet village. Don’t mind no WiFi but a bigger freezer would have been great. All in all a fab holiday. The Carrs
Quirky cottage, fabulous location A beautiful, quirky 16th century cottage ideally located to explore the area. Based in Colyford you have choice of two pubs and an excellent local butchers plus general store. The cottage offered great living space for 4 adults and 1 toddler. Alexandra B
The property was lovely and well-kept and had all the amenities that were required.
We enjoyed our stay at the cottage and the children had a really good time exploring the gardens. It was also well placed to visit a number of areas close-by. The Albers family.

Staying in this cottage has been lovely. The location was perfect, close to all the coastal towns we wanted to visit. We were grateful for all the lovely games and books available in the cottage. Overall, there’s something for everyone here. We love its quirky design and furnishings, we really loved staying here and hope to return at some point. The W-B’s

Your 16th Century Cottage is fabulous, its very quirky. We enjoyed staying here, it reminded us of our old 1700’s cottage. The dogs were very much at home as it has the same slate floor.
It was very comfortable and homely. Thank you, lovely holiday.
