We had a wonderful time staying at the Little Place/Art B&B. We booked very last minute for just one night. We had planned to go somewhere cheaper the second night but as soon as we arrived we knew we didn't want to be anywhere else - we booked a second night and could have happily stayed a lot longer. It was worth every penny. The house and artworks around it are beautiful and Hugh and Candida were welcoming and warm hosts. It felt like a very special home from home. We had never been to Lyme Regis before but thoroughly enjoyed it. Breakfast in the sunshine on the terrace overlooking the sea was a real highlight, as was the walk down to the beach through the woods of wild garlic and bluebells. Hugh even sold us some of his artwork as a gift for our friends. Thank you for a lovely stay and we hope we'll visit again sometime.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Come and stay the weekend, or longer, in our beautiful Georgian home in the pretty seaside town of Lyme Regis, the Pearl of West Dorset's Jurassic Coast.Here in Lyme Regis you will never be bored. You can laze on a beach, collect fossils or jetsam from the Victorian dump that is crumbling onto the shoreline. You can trawl the shops or eat yourself silly. It takes a morning to explore the face of this charming Georgian gem, but this is a small town with a large town's appetite for adventure.Turn to the page Things to Do, or ask Hugh when you arrive - what's new? Decorated in handprinted wallpapers, paintings of the coast and of the artist's family, this studio home* is set in the very heart of the town. Little Place is 5 minutes uphill from Broad Street, the main drag, and Langmoor Gardens with its celebrated view and access to the ancient Cobb, the harbour and the beach. We have two rooms with en suite shower, not sea views. You can have breakfast on the verandah with a stunning sea view overlooking Golden Cap, and sit in our garden. Most of the breakfast is home made produce; and we strive to live in an environmentally-friendly way. Parking in nearby pay and display carparks. "One of the prettiest places in the UK" as recently described by John Sargeant, Lyme Regis and especially Little Place continue to be an inspiration to its present artist owners. Here's your opportunity to share that inspiration by staying in a quite unique house in this jewel of a seaside town.This arty house has pedigree. For many years it was the home of Sir Laurence Whistler, The Queen's Glass Engraver. He left his mark on several beautiful windows about the house.This is a creative, working house and we welcome those who respect a quiet atmosphere. Your host Hugh is a working artist with a busy practice in portraits, landscapes, & lino prints together with textiles & wallpaper making. ... more less
