“Wonderful restful getaway”
Reviewed 6 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The White House is extremely comfortable, modern & beautifully presented. Very well equipped kitchen & utility room with the bonus of being a short walk from the centre of Lyme Regis. The owners were very friendly and helpful, making our stay very special.

“Lazily lounging in lovely Lyme”
Reviewed 10 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The White House was a brilliant find.

I needed a house large enough for a family gathering, near enough to beach and shops for the more pedestrian of our company and found just the ticket. Over the weekend we had about 15 of us, gradually dwindling as the week wore on.

TWH is just a step away from the Post Office and Tesco - easily close enough to run back for something you forgot. The house has two lovely TV/play rooms - largely unused during our stay due to the lovely weather, but certainly big enough to accommodate large numbers between them. The dining room is also big enough for everyone, although the table takes up much of the space if you are like us, you'll use most of it and be glad of the size.

I lost count of the number of TVs, but one of them was so good my brother bought one on the internet to be delivered as he got home !!

Lovely outdoor area, complete with BBQ.

The bedrooms are all really lovely, all with on-suite, other than two of the rooms which share one between them.

As a family we really love Lyme, and the central location of TWH ensures thee is no excuse to investigate all our old haunts.

Thanks Terry; we had a ball.

“Ideal home for a ladies weekend”
Reviewed 26 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We couldn't have asked for a better weekend. The house is very well equipped with everything you need to eat in, the bedrooms are all en suite, and also nice big sofas for relaxing. The location is perfect - literally right in the town and with good off road parking too. we will definitely be coming back - couldn't fault it and Terry and Jinling (the owners) go the extra mile to welcome you.

“Wonderful house in excellent location”
Reviewed 19 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

What a wonderful house the White House is!! The house is well equipped with everything you need for a memorable weekend. It's location is excellent just a short walk to the town and beach. The views are amazing. All the rooms are perfect.
Terry and Jinling are lovely hosts who made us all feel most welcome. It's the extra little touches that make the house the best we have stayed in because as a group of twelve adults we have over twenty years experience and the White House ticks all the boxes. Go and check it out for yourself if you need somewhere for a get together with family or friends, you won't be disappointed. Booking again next year, can't wait.

“Birthday Weekend”
Reviewed 31 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

A great place. There were 13 of us to have a get together for a 70th birthday weekend. Ages from 70 to 8! Such a brilliant location. So close to everything.
Down side was trying to get money. There is only one hole in the wall at Tesco and when we were there is never worked. You can get money from the post office but post office hours.
However we managed this little hic-up.
The White House has given us the best memories for Aubreys 70th Party.
Would 100% recommend
Thank you

“The perfect cottage in Lyme Regis”
Reviewed 23 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We booked this cottage for a group of 12 for my friends hen party. There were enough rooms for some to have one to themself and all were en suite! The sea view from the rooms is fantastic and the living room / kitchen area are big enough to comfortably seat a large amount of people.
Everything was clean, tidy and plenty of amenities (iron, two kettles, dishwasher, towels and slippers provided!) we even got to use the outdoor seating / bbq area for an afternoon drink, again with lovely sea view.
The cottage is a ten minute walk to HIX restaurant and a very short walk to the Cobb and other places on the high street - it's so central. The seven private parking spaces are unbelievably handy,
The hosts were fantastic, friendly, flexible and so easy to deal with. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our stay here!

“Fantastic family time.”
Reviewed 25 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

I booked the White House to celebrate my husbands special birthday. I chose it because I knew that everyone could have a double bedroom and ensuite shower and it looked spacious and attractive. When we arrived we weren't disappointed. The house is beautifully presented and very well equipped. Plenty of kitchen equipment. The house is large but so cosy with its tasteful decor and good heating.
I booked wit Terry direct and was quick to respond to my emails. Thank you for allowing us to check out later on Monday. Very much appreciated.
