    Holiday Rental House – 
    4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    This quintessentially English cottage exudes the charm of a by-gone age with a large English country garden, replete with apple trees, lavender and rose bushes, daisies and green rolling lawns. It is an ideal family getaway, sleeping eight in four bedrooms, decorated in old, 1940's style, offering spectacular views of the the famous Jurassic Coast, one minute's walk away.

    There are no roads to cross to get to the natural, unspoilt beach, which offers hours of fossil-hunting pleasure, as well as long walks and a virtually currentless sea. It is ideal for children of all ages.

    The village is a 10-minute walk away and offers a regular bus service, small food shops, tennis courts, as well as medical and hairdressing services and good places to eat.

    Beautiful, historic Lyme Regis,...

Not too smart, which was exactly what we wanted, but very well equipped, with good modern kitchen and Aga, which keeps the big downstairs room lovely and warm; nice homely sitting area with comfy sofas. Good range of bedrooms, very comfortable beds & good hot shower. Lovely big garden and verandah... more

We stayed overnight in the Red Bungalow and I just wish we could have stayed longer. The property is situated by the beach and has some wonderful views. The garden is a lovely size and ideal for kids. The bungalow has everything you need even coal on fire lighters for the BBQ! The Aga was a lovely touch too. I... more
