We were the first occupants of the newly refurbished White House in Lyme Regis and must say it had the WOW factor for us. Although everything is brand new, clean and bright. it is very homely and extremely comfortable throughout. In addition Lyme Regis never fails to delight and we are looking forward to our next visit in August.
A party of us (all adults) recently stayed here for a week. It is a large property within a 5 minute stroll down the main street to the beach, with good parking for several cars. Kitchen had 2 ovens which was useful and the utility room had 2 washing machines and a large tumle drier.
However, we left all the carpets a lot cleaner than we found them - ours (Room 5) was grubby and very dusty with several nail clippings left on them...... not pleasant. The cushions in the sitting room were also grubby and looked (and felt) as though they hadn't been properly cleaned for a long time. A bedsheet in the top floor twin bedded room had what looked like black chalk scribbles on it - complete with chalky dust......I won't book this place again.
The White House is now a self-catering holiday let. I booked it as a surprise weekend away, with family and friends, for my husband's 50th birthday. We had a great time, the house was a perfect venue with plenty of room for 14 of us, within walking distance of the town and sea-front. I was impressed with how well-equipped and warm it was, bearing in mind it was February!
