Sleeps 4 | Dog-friendly | Character cottage | Lyme Old Town
When choosing somewhere special to stay in Lyme Regis, location is key. By the beach? Near the shops? Tucked away? In the case of Coombe Street holiday cottage, you get all three locations in one – and a lot more besides. Talk about location, location, location.
Sitting with cosy, comfortable confidence in the historic heart of Lyme Regis’ old town, Coombe Street cottage is a dog-friendly escape that is the best of three worlds rolled into one.
No more than a beachball bounce from Dorset’s rolling Jurassic coast, it’s a quick stroll away from the seaside hustle of town yet is nestled away in one of Lyme’s prettiest streets. Just the spot for an unforgettable break – whether you’re looking for quiet relaxation, heritage and romance, or a rollicking family beach adventure.
Step inside Coombe Street cottage and you’ll discover a captivating blend of past and present. Newly renovated and flawlessly presented, this dog-friendly Lyme Regis cottage retains all of its original character and echoes of a rich backstory.
Time spent in the living and dining areas makes the urge to unwind irresistible, while the allure of a high-spec kitchen will soon inspire a storm of culinary creativity – no doubt making use of the glorious local produce on your doorstep.
Venture upstairs, and two tranquil bedrooms extend the warmest of welcomes. In keeping with its coastal setting, the master (double) bedroom offers constant reminders of your beachside backdrop, with every detail adding to the nautical flavour of your stay. The second bedroom is one for your younger travellers, featuring beautiful bunkbeds that promise a good night’s sleep following a hard day’s holidaying.
For that added touch of luxury, there’s a cool and calm shower room, giving you the chance to chill out (or warm up), only a metre or two from the soothing sounds of the River Lym.
Beyond the front door of Coombe Street Cottage, there’s the hustle, heritage and breath-taking scenery of Lyme Regis to lap up. The brooding Cobb that gave John Fowles’ The French Lieutenant’s Woman its dramatic canvas is an easy saunter along the sea-front. The expansive Jurassic cliffs that hide millions of years of natural (pre)history ground you beautifully in the real world. Then there’s Lyme’s wonderful museum, where you can find out more about famous palaeontologist, Mary Anning.
Less than a stone’s throw (remember to check for fossils before throwing) from this dog-friendly cottage in Lyme Regis are a treasure-trove of local eateries, shops and the town’s micro-brewery and recently refurbished pub, The Ship Inn. And if that isn’t enough to satiate even the most adventurous of appetites, the nearby Town Mill Bakery offers a daily breakfast you simply can’t afford to miss.
