My husband and I are just home having stayed here for a couple of nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary without the kids! On arrival, we received a lovely warm welcome with tea and home-made cakes in our room, sorry, on our private balcony overlooking the sea!! Our room was beautiful with a lovely comfy bed, a huge squashy 2-person seat that looked out over the balcony to the sea. A well kitted out bathroom and added extras such as bathrobes and slippers. All other essentials too - hairdryer, sewing kit and gorgeously scented toiletries. There was also a goodly choice of in-room entertainment - large tv, SKY, a HUGE selection of dvds and a dock for an iPod.
There is a lovely walk into Lyme Regis from Beech Grove House is along bridal paths and fields, then following the river into town - probably about 20 minutes, but 20 very calming and relaxing minutes.
The grounds of BGH are amazing - a huge garden stretching up the hill behind the house with chickens (fresh eggs for breakfast) and a beautiful Finnish barbecue lodge, complete with reindeer skins to keep you warm! A walk to the top of this garden is a work out in itself - a Summer house at the top allows you to sit and take it all in (and get your breath back!). There is also a hot tub for guests to use.
Breakfast is cooked to order and covers a whole range of choices from cereals to fruit to fish to the full English!!
Its location just out of town means the BGH is away from the town and at night is fantastically dark and very quiet! The only noises being those of the countryside around you - the odd sheep and birds.
The owners are extremely pleasant and very generous allowing us to share, what is in effect, their beautiful home with us. Thank you. We hope to return one day.
