“Beautiful house in a great location”
Reviewed 14 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed at The White House for the weekend with 11 guests and had a great time. Rooms are beautiful with very comfortable beds and great views, lovely kitchen & dining area with everything you could need and all very clean. Right next to the high street and only a short downhill walk to the sea! We want to come back every weekend!

“Fantastic seaside holiday house for a big group”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

From the outside it is a picture-perfect traditional seaside villa, on the inside it is smart and modern. Loads of space for a big group, with lovely large sitting rooms and a light and well-equipped kitchen, but also separate shower rooms for all the bedrooms, so everyone had their own space. And the location is great - 5 minutes walk from the beach and the center of Lyme. Definitely recommend.

“Wonderful for families with small children”
Reviewed 28 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We were a big family group with four children under 6. The White House was perfect - spacious clean and safe for them to run around. The playroom was a bonus.
The house is very comfortable and well equipped.
The location couldn't be better - walking distance to beach, shops and restaurants and even lots of parking spaces.
We particularly liked the restaurant at the Lyme Regis Golf Club. In my opinion it is the best food in town. I can also recommend the Taste of India

“The White House is a fabulous place to stay, in an excellent location”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The house was excellent in every way possible. It was very clean, well furnished with great facilities. Everyone in our group thought it was perfect in every way and we all agreed that we would stay there again next year. The owners were very welcoming and helped us settle in without any fuss.

“Amazing location, beautiful house”
Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This was one of the best places I've stayed, it was perfect for our family gathering. Lovely and clean, beautifully decorated, easy. There was lots of room in the big communal areas (living rooms, dining rooms, kitchen, outside terrace). Not only was the house in an amazing location (it's located at the top of the high street, 5 mins to the beach) there was private parking which is hard to come by in Lyme! The owners made us feel extremely welcome. It's one of the nicest experiences I've had - a memorable weekend. Lyme is perfect for relaxing, walking and hiking, lots of things to do. A perfect holiday!! Thank you White House!

Great location close to the centre with excellent views over Lyme Bay. A great location for a reunion or other large groups of 10-14 people.
Well maintained with lovely and spacious bedrooms.

“A wonderful stay!”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

A group of 10 adults and 2 tiny babies descended upon Lyme Regis for a weekend away and we were not disappointed!
We had a wonderful welcome from the owners and we were thrilled with the property. Location was top notch with beautiful views and right in the middle of town - but still very quiet. All rooms were sparkling with crisp white linen and an ensuite in every room.
The house has excellent entertainment areas also.
We had a wonderful stay and would definately stay again!
Thanks to Terry and Jingling!
