This spectacular innovative eco-friendly property was only built in 2016 and is nestled in the country side above Lyme Bay. Driftwood has a heat recovery ventilation system providing fresh filtered clean air to all rooms. There is also an air source heat pump and solar panels. All fittings within Driftwood have been carefully selected for their quality and comfort. Driftwood is on one floor and is accessed via an internal staircase. The patio is accessed from the ground floor. Driftwood is detached but on the same plot of land as Lyme Bay Lookout. The two properties can be rented independently with each property having its own access, parking and outside space. Note: the outside space at driftwood is a paved patio area with a BBQ and seating for 6. Larger groups could rent both properties. Please note that the communal areas have been designed only to seat the number of people from their building therefore large groups could only eat together outside or in two sittings. Situated on a quiet single track country lane Driftwood has great walks from the door step. You can also walk to Lyme Regis in 40 minutes (slightly longer coming back as it is up hill!) There is also a bus which stops at the end of the road to make the return trip slightly easier. You are only a 5 minute drive from the quaint seaside town of Lyme Regis, 10 minutes drive to Charmouth and less than 30 minutes from other popular coastal towns such as Beer and Sidmouth. If you prefer a little more action the historic cathedral city of Exeter is only 30 minutes away. Activities close by + Walking in the country side + Fossil hunting on the beach at Lyme Regis + Building sandcastles on the beach + Paddling and swimming from the beach + Exploring the shops and back streets of Lyme Regis + Stopping for lunch or a coffee at the Town Mill Bakery + Hiring Kayaks from the beach at Lyme Regis + Trying your luck at deep sea or mackerel fishing from Lyme Regis + Visiting River Cottage (only a 5 minute drive or 40 minute walk away) + Visit the historic market towns or Axminster or Bridport to meet local producers and artists.More

About the neighbourhood
Lyme Regis: the perfect UK holiday destination, the town for all seasons. With a large sandy beach and shallow water ideal for families with young children and those wanting to swim. The pebbled beach nestled below the main town allows access to fossils which can be easily found just using your eyes (there is no need for a hammer and chisel!) The coastal and countryside walks in the area are plentiful. When you are ready to relax and experience the local cuisine then there are a good selection of pubs, bars and fish and chip outlets along the beach front. There is also Hix Oyster and Seafood House overlooking the bay and a few miles outside Lyme Regis and close to The Lookout is both River Cottage HQ and River Cottage Canteen.
Getting around
The easiest way to get around is by car. It is possible to walk into Lyme Regis through the farm track to Uplyme and then following the river the the beach. There are buses but they are not very frequent and both bus stops are a 15 minute walk from the house.
