This is the perfect b&b for us; there is private parking although some of the spaces can be tricky as it is a bit steep down the drive. The walk down Colway Lane and by the River Lym takes about twenty minutes down and half an hour back. As we love the walk by the river we walked down and back every day and I am sure the exercise did us good. St Cuthberts is the only b&b in Lyme Regis to have been awarded the AA 4 Gold Stars and not only is it well deserved but is also such good value.
We were lucky enough to arrive on Sunday 22nd July which was the first day of some warm sunny days after days and days of rain. The sun came in to our accommodation upstairs in the afternoons and there was a lovely view through the french windows and juliet balcony over the well kept garden with the sea in the distance. Our bedroom downstairs was of an equally high standard.
The rooms are tastefully decorated and the furnishings are luxurious. We appreciated the fresh milk and bottled water in the fridge as well as the packets of large and varied biscuits to have with tea or coffee. Our bathroom was beautiful with a large walk in shower.
From the sitting room/dining room a door leads to the decking area outside. We sat outside a couple of evenings with some wine which was very pleasant although the decking area doesn't seem to be used very often.
The 'pièce de résistance' is the breakfast which I suspect no other b&b comes near to in Lyme Regis. One can choose the night before whether one has 8 pancakes with delicious crispy bacon, maple syrup and home made fruit compote, scrambled eggs on toast with smoked salmon, a full English breakfast or a kipper. There are, of course, all the other things that most b&bs serve for breakfast such as cereals, fruit juice, fresh fruit, yoghourts, white, brown or granary toast or a croissant, tea, coffee or hot chocolate. Thank you Sue and Miles for looking after us so well and we look forward to returning very soon.
