“Wonderful position with lovely seaviews”

Five of us stayed at Cobb Gate Cottage in June/July and had a lovely time. The cottage is in a brilliant position with fantastic views across the pebble beach to the sea. When the crowds go home, you can walk out with a cup of tea or a glass of wine and it is like having your own personal beach. For anyone who likes to swim, there is a clear swim line across the bay and you could literally walk out of the door and be swimming out into the bay in moments.
We had my parents with us who are both in their eighties. We were able to park right outside when necessary with Dad's Blue Badge and he could enjoy level walks up and down the front, without too many steps.
Amy, the agent was really helpful in answering our last minute questions.
The cottage is clean and comfortable; well decorated and well equipped but I don't think this is quite a 'five star' holiday let. At a first look, the sitting room looks great, but the leather sofas are quite worn and covered with throws, which slip off all the time. I found myself repeatedly trying to make them look tidy and prevent anyone from tripping over them.
The upstairs bedroom is brilliant, but as mentioned by another reviewer, the stairs are narrow and steep. The third bedroom is really only suitable for children - the mattresses are not the same quality as elsewhere and not comfortable for an adult. The room is a bit dark and has no view other than the walls of the adjacent property.
So, not quite five star but still a brilliant place to stay, which we would thoroughly recommend and would happily return to ourselves.
As far as Lyme Regis goes, I would just say that food shopping is limited - there is a small Tesco, couple of delis and bakeries. There is an excellent cheese shop in the Town Mill, great fresh fish down at the Cobb end of town and also wonderful seafood from the little stall at that end (we bought the best, fattest cockles we've ever eaten and fried them up with fresh sole and prawns as part of a tapas). Another time I would shop before I arrived to save trips up to the supermarket in Axminster.

Thank you for your review. We are glad you had an enjoyable week at Cobb Gate Beach House.

You may be pleased to know that all the sofas in the living room were replaced with new ones at the beginning of July.

With regards to food shopping in Lyme, some guests have arranged for a supermarket delivery upon their arrival which works quite well.

Kind regards
Amy

“Best Possible Place to Stay - Stunning”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Our week at Cobb Gate is almost indescribably wonderful. The cottage itself is beautiful, comfy, fully equipped and impeccably maintained. The location of the cottage is stunning. Through a private gate from the Marine Parade and up a flight of stairs to the front door patio leads you to a perfect perch for people watching on the parade. They don't even realize you are there. The outdoor patio with views of the bay and the Cobb are always specular with boats of all kind going in and out of the harbor. We never tired of watching the little ones on the beach with their parents. At nightfall, the Marine Parade deserted, and any people noise stopped - just the gentle sound of the surf. With the sun, breezes, views, sounds, museums and restaurants, it was difficult to get out and explore any place else but Lyme Regis. By the way, parking on the road below the cottage to load and unload was no problem, and the short walk to the car park became an opportunity to drink in the ambiance and architecture of this wonderful seaside town.

“Wonderful would recommend to anyone.”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Grandchildren loved the freedom of going to beach alone ,we watched from above. Everything you could possible want is provided. Only downfall was distance to car park.
Which was up a steep hill in middle of town. Ok if not arthritic like us. Would still go again .
The views were wonderful from indoors ,so rain every day we were there, did not worry us.

“WOW FACTOR!”
Reviewed 22 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Have visited Lyme many, many times and have always wanted to stay near or on the Beach. This time we did! Cannot fault this cottage in any way - clean, comfortable, well equipped and with clear instructions from the owners we had a fantastic time and have booked to go back next year

“Fantastic house with best location in Lyme?”
Reviewed 10 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This is the third time we've stayed in Lyme and each time we've got closer to the Beach. This time we were about 15 feet away in Cobb Gate Beach House which is probably the best self-catering property we've ever stayed in.

The house is situated right on Marine Parade and you can park right outside but you then need to move your car to the car park for which a permit is provided. It took me six minutes to walk back from the car park and we then didn't see the car till we left a week later.

The house is raised up from the beach so you get a great view of the sea and all the comings and goings. Lying in bed at night you can hear the sea which is very relaxing.

Downstairs there is a large lounge with very comfy chairs and a large TV. Next to is the kitchen/diner which was equipped with everything you need. On the same floor are two tin bedded rooms and a bathroom and upstairs is the double with ensuite shower room.

The house was spotlessly clean and everything was in good order and we really can't recommend this enough.
