“Fantastic place to stay for romantic retreat”
Reviewed 3 October 2012

Charming teacups and other delightful accessories in a beautifully decorated room, and a healthy breakfast that we could enjoy in privacy. Good walks close by and we enjoyed our dinner at the River Cottage Canteen. A perfect place for a weekend getaway!

This is one of the best B&B I have stayed. It only has one room with a separate entrance so you do not have to worry at what time you get back in the night. The room was nicely decorated with a new and modern fresh style. And the bed was really comfy! The breakfast was great: cold but served on a little trolley that you could have whenever you wanted in your room. Although it was a bit far from everything (you need a car or taxi), it was really quiet (we could only hear the birds in the morning). The owner was not there but her parents made us feel like at home. I will definitely recommend it!

The Charton contributed to our wonderful weekend in Lyme Regis. We were greeted with a welcome smile and shown to a clean, stylish and comfortable room. The breakfast was perfection.

I would without doubt love to return and would highly recomment this B & B.

The location ideal for a coastal get-away.

The room decor is stunning, modern, clean and the breakfast was A-mazing!

Great heating, a selection of tea's and coffee & a selection of tourist catalogues to help plan your day/s.
There are many walks, driving into town takes 5 mins. We drove into town on our first night bought take away cod & chips and enjoyed it on the shore overlooking the ocean.

The next morning we took a breakfast hamper for a picnic in town, we found a parking area ideal with picnic tables overlooking the harbour. Michelle has gone out of her way to make sure your stay is everything you need.

We would easily go back for a longer stay & would recommended everyone to do the same.

The Charton is a lovely B&B located 3 miles outside Lyme Regis. There's only 1 room, located at the back of the house on the ground floor. The main window looks out onto the garden lawn. The house itself is located down a small lane off the main road. The room is a modest size, but it’s clean and beautifully decorated. Breakfast is eaten in the room, and provided on a trolley outside the door. The owners are really friendly and helpful with tips on walks, restaurants, things to do etc. We were blessed with fabulous weather during our 3 night stay. You can walk down to the coast path from the B&B (approximately 20 minutes). You will need to drive in evening to eat out (it isn’t practical to walk to Lyme Regis at night). Taxis are reliable but quite expensive (£10 each way to Lyme Regis), and be warned that you need to book well ahead if you want a taxi on Saturday night. My only quibble – a bigger bed would be nice for tall people like me. The owners plan to add a self-catering unit later this year (at the end of the garden), and I'm sure it will be equally tasteful & beautiful. Finally, don’t forget your geology hammer for the fossil hunting!

Room Tip: There's only one room !

Very clean, very cosy, stress free 'ckecking-in'. Nice bathroom, great breakfast, good bed, heating, tv, iPod speakers, tea set etc... Very tasteful styling and quite separate to the main house. Highly recommend to any one!

We stayed for a three night weekend and I can say we couldn't have found a better place. The room is absolutely beautiful and very clean, and the bathroom is really great and stylish. The biscuits, the tea and the shampoo are a very nice touch. The breakfast is fantastic and makes for a very good start in the day. Michelle is very nice and considerate host and made us feel very welcome. Over all we can thoroughly recommend it.
