Accessible within 4 minutes by car or via a 25-minute downhill walk over fields and along the riverbank, Lyme Regis is one of England’s most memorable small towns. It is famous as the setting for both the story and film of ’The French Lieutenant’s Woman’, with its harbour, bright with boats, streets of elegant colour-washed buildings, lofty cliffs and a great sweep of sea. Inns, restaurants and a choice of shops can be found amongst the town’s attractive jumble of narrow streets, and it is a notable water sports centre. Motorboats can be hired, and there are fishing trips, a sailing school and club, and a wind-surfing school.
For nature lovers, the area has some of the most diverse scenery in the country: Lyme Bay sweeps round from the National Nature Reserve on the Dowlands Cliffs in an uninterrupted arc along the huge bank of shingle that is Chesil Beach, all the way to the limestone slab of the Isle of Portland. The 626ft Golden Cap, a breath-taking viewpoint and part of a lovely 2,000-acre National Trust estate, is the highest point on England’s south coast, a World Heritage Site. It is an easy drive to Bridport, Honiton, Sidmouth, Exeter and Dorchester. For families, there are many lovely beaches close at hand, and Crealy Theme Park near Exeter. Lyme Regis golf course is within ½ mile and visitors are welcome to use the golf course, or to visit the bar and restaurant. Each cottage has a comprehensive information folder giving details of local pubs, restaurants, shops, walks, excursions and many interesting facts about Lyme Regis and finding fossils along the Jurassic coast. Shops 1 mile.
