My wife and 3 year old stayed here for three nights over the weekend. We were given the 'Under Thatch' room by the garden which has its own separate entrance. The owners Wendy and Frank gave us a very warm welcome. They were helpful and ensured our entire stay was comfortable. They were very accommodating to our little boy, who loved it here. He had his own camper bed and loved the surrounding garden.
The room was very well presented. Good size tv screen. Stocked well with local guides, tea/ coffee and biscuits but best of all were five children's storybooks ( we had forgotten ours).
Plenty of towels and toiletries in the bathroom, though you may have to get use to the noise of the macerator.
Breakfast was generous (coffee refills and more toast!) with plenty of choice. The cooked breakfast was very good, especially the scrambled eggs. My toddler had his own milk served in a cute 'Peter Rabbit' cup. It is also quite a social occasion as you share the breakfast table with the other guests.
Very convenient location - an easy 10 minute amble into town (though a slightly harder walk back), so unless you have lots of stuff to cart to the beach, it's better to park in their driveway, as parking in Lyme can be tricky.
Whether you're a small family or a solo traveller, if you're in the Lyme area, I would highly recommend this B&B.
