“great location”
Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in October 2018

our second visit to this unique property in under 6 months. It must be the most photographed building in Lyme Regis! The layout and numerous stairs may not suit everyone but we are already planning our next visit to this quirky and charming house

“Very quirky house in ideal location”
Reviewed 15 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

This house looks stunning from outside. Looks a bit like a castle. Location is perfect! Far away enough from the Cobb so not have noise from the pubs, but a stone’s throw from the beach. The Jurassic coast just 20 minutes away. Drop off by car was easy though most car parks are a good 10-20 minutes walk away depending on where you parked. One car park was £2 a day and others about £5 a day. We got a pass for the whole duration of our stay.
Inside the house is old fashioned but in a way that preserves the character of Lyme Regis. The kitchen is well furnished with plates, cups and glasses. Lots of large pots and pans if cooking for a large group of people. Layout of the kitchen is a bit odd and three of the electric hobs didn’t work very well. But the oven did and the microwave worked. I was staying with my mum and dad who are strict vegetarians who require home cooked food. We cooked Indian food everyday complete with chapatis, curries and rice with no problem!
It’s a lovely house and we had a great stay with all the family. However it’s worth mentioning that layout is very quirky and it could affect your stay. For example the living room and a bathroom is on the ground floor and kitchen on first floor. The only other bathroom was on the fourth floor. So if you were staying on third floor you either had to go up for loo in middle of the night or down two floors. Not a big problem unless you have elderly people or kids who may wake up many times in the night. However, the bathroom on the top floor led to a room. The only way to get to this room was via the loo. This loo is also shared by another bedroom. But neither door of the loo had a lock! I think the owner should invest in couple of locks to avoid embarrassment! The kids were constantly walking in on my poor dad who kept forgetting to tell everyone that he was visiting the bathroom! I think to stay here it would help if you were family or very close friends! The best thing was to have breakfast and dinner in the dining room with the stunning views of the sea. And the front of the house has a balcony! It’s a great old fashioned house with lots of character. The only thing stopping me giving it 5 stars is that both the bathrooms, while looking neat and tidy, didn’t look very clean as there is water damage giving rise to mould in nooks and crannies and the grouting in the tiles. This place’s prime location makes it an expensive holiday rent when compared to others in Lyme Regis and for that I would expect bathrooms to be maintained and grouting to be renewed when required. It’s a cheap fix but makes all the difference to holiday makers as Black mould looks and is awful!
On the whole a great place to stay. It’s location alone is worth it.

“Prime location”
Reviewed 14 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Really great house in prime location on Marine Parade. Walking distance to all restaurants and attractions. We’ve stayed in Lyme Regis a lot but this is the first time at this property because of its size. It was the hottest weekend of the year so far and we slept with windows open, but it would have been nice to sit on the bench in the back garden area in the late afternoon but unfortunately the path was overgrown with brambles and weeds so you couldn’t access it. I watered the plants at the front balcony area as they too were unloved.
