“A cosy stay at the wonderful White House!”
Reviewed 30 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I booked the house for my mum's hen do so a large group of us went down to stay. We were really impressed with the location and the house itself. Only a minute's stroll from the centre of town and an Indian takeaway next door! A real luxury to have ample parking with the house- beware as the drive is quite tight but we still got through in a 4x4!
The house was very clean and spacious with the bedrooms especially being fresh and cosy. A real bonus to have an en-suite to every room as well. The top two rooms are the best- amazing views over Lyme Regis. The tea, coffee and biscuits were a lovely touch after a long drive and very handy to have towels included too.
The owners were very helpful and welcoming prior to our stay and throughout our stay also. We all said that we would definitely return in the future!

“Wonderful house and location, we loved our stay”
Reviewed 7 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The White House was a perfect base for our extended family holiday. It suited all 14 of us from grandparents down to the 6 children aged between 9 and 1. The layout of the house worked really well, and it is a real bonus to have ensuite facilities for every bedroom. Plenty of parking for us all. Ideal location for popping out to the town and the beach.
Highlights of our week included spending time on the Lyme Regis beach and seafront, feeding the grey mullet in the aquarium on the Cobb, fossil hunting on Charmouth beach, walking to Monmouth's ammonite pavement and going up the lighthouse on Portland Bill.

Stayed here as part of a family celebration. The house was beautiful with lovely views of the sea. It was immaculately clean, well equipped and in the perfect location. We didn't use the car once for the whole stay. Would highly recommend and hope to be able to visit again. Thank you.

“Perfect weekend in Lyme Regis”
Reviewed 9 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Feel really lucky to have stayed in Terry' and Jinling's lovely house in Lyme Regis. Situated within easy walking distance from the centre with all its attractions - the beach, harbour, gardens, beautiful walks and pubs (I recommend The Pilot Inn). There's also an Indian takeaway next door and the house is right by a beautiful pedestrian road lined with cottages (Sherbourne Lane) that takes you down to the river, museums and the Town Mill.

Terry was great to communicate with and made arriving and leaving a breeze. As others have said the kitchen is very well equipped, and there's even a dishwasher which we found very useful with a large party. Effectively having two lounges - one set up for videogames and a multi-purpose games table, and one with a huge sofa perfect for films, was a real luxury. The rooms are lovely and airy in the heat, with beautiful views and great showers. Really I have nothing but good things to say about this property and the town itself, the whole party had a great time and we would love to stay again - thanks again :)

“Property perfection”
Reviewed 8 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

You could not ask for more. The property is located right in the town- 5 mins from the sea and views to match. The rooms are all a good size and each stylishly decorated and furnished. Fittings and fixtures are of good quality. The kitchen is well equipped- we cooked a celebratory dinner for 12 and only needed to bring our own champagne flutes. We had Waitrose deliver and soon found local deli/ bakers for decent bread. Excellent coffee can be found in a cafe a couple of doors away.The long dining table lends itself to gatherings and the adjacent outdoor seating pre drinks or early coffee. If you don't cook there is an Indian restaurant next door and a traditional pub with food a few minutes towards the town- spoilt for choice.

This is a beautiful house, Exceptionally clean and in a wonderful location The house contains everything you require during your stay. The views from both the house and patio area are breath taking. There is adequate parking area too.
The owners are very kind and friendly and would recommend this to others wanting a weekend or weeks break near the coast.
