My husband, 11 year old son and I will be in Dorset for a few days in July. We would really like to do some fossil hunting (Lyme Regis or Charmouth), but we're wondering where to stay.
We will be coming in by train from Cornwall, so could stay anywhere in the area that we can reach by train. Alternatively, we could take a bus from the train to other areas.
Is it worth staying in Lyme Regis, or would we be better off staying somewhere closer to the train (Axminster, perhaps)?
And any other suggestions for things to do without a car?
Thanks for any help!!
