From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Explore Dorset from this larger 17th century property conveniently situated in the popular seaside resort of Lyme Regis.

Dating back to 1630 - when it was originally established as a coaching inn - Old Monmouth lies in the heart of the popular seaside resort of Lyme Regis and forms one of a row of properties, just 100 yards from the seafront. Full of character, it offers spacious holiday accommodation for 16 people - with seven bedrooms (five en-suite) and also has many period features, including beamed ceilings, inglenook fireplaces and pine wooden shutters.

Old Monmouth has endured a chequered history with Monmouth’s cavalry lodging there in 1685, being visited by Oscar Wilde in 1891 and used by the Americans as a HQ during the war. This unique property is an excellent holiday home to enjoy Lyme Regis with its famous Cobb, beach, shops and cafes, and also to explore the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site. There is superb scenery, coastal walking, golf and fishing on the doorstep, and within easy driving distance are Bridport, Charmouth, Beer, Seaton and Sidmouth. Weymouth, with its Deep Sea Adventure, Timewalk and many other attractions also makes for a good family visit. There are a host of National Trust properties to visit, as well as Forde Abbey and Gardens - whilst inland, the Yeovilton Air Museum, the Haynes Motor Museum, Sherborne Castle and much more provide alternative days out. Shops 200 yards, pubs and restaurant 100 yards.

    A quick weekend away with friends (no children). The accommodation easily fitted in 5 couples with room to spare. Lovely house (the pictures don't do it justice), 2 minute walk from the front, shops and restaurants. We had great weather so didn't need all the amenities in the house, but there is plenty to entertain inside on wet days.

    Wonderful place for a family get together, especially with the new addition of the games room downstairs. Only thing missing is parking, but it's actually good to dump the car for the weekend and walk - everything is so close and convenient. Lovely house.

    A return visit. Ideal for my large family . Only negative points....... Basement superficially impressive but unusable because of damp . Dishwasher needs replacing. Larger freezer needed.

    The Old Monmouth is the perfect central location for a large family group. All the rooms are equally beautiful so everyone is happy. Alex and Tony are thoughtful and helpful without intruding on your holiday. We would happily recommend this lovely house.

    Our family stayed in Old Monmouth for a significant birthday gathering. The location was excellent - very near the town centre and sea front - and only the lack of a sea view and the proximity of the church bells opposite, which chimed on the quarter hour all night prevented a score of 10. The kitchen was well equipped and the games room in the basement was a big hit, too. We have stayed in other cottages for family get-togethers and we liked Old Monmouth the best. Lyme Regis is lovely and this is a great base from which to enjoy it.

    Great cottage. Lovely location. Parking was a tiny bit painful but not too bad as the long stay car park is within 5-10 min walk an is relatively cheap. Would definitely go back. 👍

    A wonderful house! Spacious, clean, warm and very well situated. The beach, shops, cafes, restaurants and theater are all within walking distance of the house so you can park the car and not need it again until it is time to go home!

    This was our third Xmas at Old Monmouth, it has all the bedroom requirements for our extended family. It is always spotlessly clean and has all cooking equipment we could need. This year the new games room wass excellent, all it needs now is a hot tub!! Only downside is there is no parking.

    Our 3rd visit as a 4-generation family - Old Monmouth is better than ever this year with the new games room in the basement. Lyme is delightful as ever and cliff walks during Storm Desmond were exciting. We hope to be back next year.
