Ranked #23 of 45 Lyme Regis B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 July 2013

I loved this B&B as did my friend. The owner,Dympna made us very welcome and we immediately felt we were going to enjoy our stay. The room was a delight, spotlessly clean with a lovely sunny alcove overlooking the courtyard garden where you could sit and read, have a cup of tea or just enjoy the view.
Breakfast was served on a trolley in our room and was delicious. No full english, but that hardly mattered as we were given two perfectly boiled eggs, some excellent fresh bread (with a toaster if we wanted to make toast) and home made jam and marmalade. We also had fresh melon and cherries and coffee of course.
I would definately like to stay here again for longer next time.

Room Tip: Both the available rooms are really lovely, the double in particular.

Lovely airy, spacious and clean room with large bathroom within a family home accessed through the kitchen. Dympna a very relaxed, welcoming and knowledgeable host. Great breakfast in our room which was a bit different to the general form of B & B's. Convenient car park which prior to us arriving in Lyme Regis were unaware about how valuable a car space was in the town! Location ideal with just a short walk to beach and harbour. Unfortunately only there for one night so didn't get to experience too much other than the seafront area of town which was very picturesque.

Spent a wonderful week in Lyme Regis staying at Coombe House, which we found via Trip Advisor (many thanks). Stayed in the twin room which is compact but suited our needs perfectly. Dympna and Hugh were fantastic, most welcoming hosts, a mine of local information and made our stay really relaxing. The breakfast was just what we needed every morning, light, tasty and very moreish, the home made bread was eaten with great relish! Could not have spent a holiday in a better place, hats off to Dympna for making our stay so relaxing. Anyone wanting a short break to Lyme Regis should consider staying here, especially with the parking availability in the courtyard, that is a bonus. Had a peek at the double room and if you want a lot of space, especially in the bathroom, go for this room if available, but the twin, although smaller and with less storage space for clothes, is really comfortable too. Hope to go back in the near future for another visit.
On another note, found a fantastic wine bar on the Main Street called Turles - food was superb, wine very reasonably priced, ambience great - recommend a visit to this place but make sure you book a table as it is very busy every night, which speaks volumes about it..........

Room Tip: Twin fine but if you want more room and storage for clothes go for the double

Our second visit to Coombe House and as the first it was sublime.
Full of charm and elegance our Double room, accessed through the owners homely kitchen and stairs full of local artwork is a large, light and airy room with a lovely large en-suite. Breakfast of homemade breads, boiled egg, jams and marmalade, fresh fruit,fruit juice, cereals and coffee/tea is served on a trolley to the room. Coombe House is in a perfect location. Minutes away from the beach and close to many quality restraurants and shops.
Dympna and Hugh are the most welcoming hosts, full of tips, ideas and local knowledge. 5 star quality.

We stayed here 4 years ago, and returned on our visit to UK as we enjoyed our stay and Lyme Regis so much. And it's still a great place to stay, central, lovely room with plenty of space and large bathroom, with a bath. home made breakfast served in the room. The bread is home made and superb, and there are a selection of great restaurants and pubs on the door step. Thanks to the owner who was genuinely welcoming and makes it a relaxing and easy going place to stay!

The value for money is excellent in this B&B, which is very well cared for. Easy access to the main drag in Lyme. The breakfasts are carefully prepared and avoid the stodgy nonsense (fresh fruit, delicious bread, lovely cereal, fresh coffee etc etc). The room was very comfortable and the owners are wonderful. Excellent water pressure and quiet rooms despite being in the centre of Lyme. Punches well above its weight for the price, but lovely irrespective of cost.

Having passed Coombe House many times on our day trips to Lyme there was only one place we could think of staying in when we choose Lyme Regis for a weekend trip. It's location is perfect. Just a minute or two walk from the sea front tucked away up a side street. Our room was bright and clean with a small but neat En~suite. The English breakfast is served in your room on a trolley and was just perfect to start the day.The hosts were so welcoming and very helpful with recommendations and advice. Parking in the forecourt isn't a problem.

Room Tip: Ask for the 'Double' when you book especially if your a 'couple'!!
