Fossilers Lodge is part of one of the oldest, unspoilt buildings in Lyme Regis. Its rhomboid windows, rooms and floors give the sensation of being aboard a galleon ship at sea, and the coast can be seen just feet away from the south-facing windows. The nautical atmosphere continues through the apartment and the ornate panelling throughout the ground floor is reputed to have been salvaged from a shipwreck in Lyme Bay, some say from the Spanish Armada, though this is just local hearsay! There is much older, carved panelling sandwiched between the kitchen and dining areas sadly no longer visible, or rather, preserved for future discovery. Other features such as the working window shutters and a wood burner in the living room, make this an ideal retreat year-round.
This fantastic home from home was built in the traditional unique ’cruck and beam’ style. This, along with many other restored historical detailing including the rare 8" elm floorboards and scalloped ceilings in the entrance stairwell, lend an air of old-world charm. The building was originally a coaching inn back in the days when Lyme was a major commercial port. The museum directly opposite the property was the site of the Butter Market where Mary Anning, perhaps the greatest and certainly the most unrecognised fossiler of all time, lived in her little house overlooking her rich hunting grounds. Beach 50 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 50 yards.
