Holiday Rental House
With sweeping views of the Lyme Bay, Springfield is a wonderful seaside house set in Lyme Regis, on the Devon/ Dorset borders. A sprawling house with bags of character, lovingly restored and furnished by a London based interior designer. Six bedrooms for 12 adults to snooze in five star linens with an additional one pair of luxury bunk beds for 2 children. Just under 5,000 sq ft so everyone can spread out. Welcoming to children who will love the big garden, trampoline, snooker room, tv snug and games room - and of course the beaches. Relax in the spacious lounge, with big French Windows opening onto the garden, cosy in the snug/TV room, cook in its big kitchen then eat together in either the breakfast area or dining room. Afterwards, unwind in the snooker room, ping pong in the games roo...With sweeping views of the Lyme Bay, Springfield is a wonderful seaside house set in Lyme Regis, on the Devon/ Dorset borders.

Afterwards, unwind in the snooker room, ping pong in the games room, chill in the conservatory or fire up a challenge with board games in the drawing room. Use the big L-shaped garden as a sun trap with terraced area for barbecues and al fresco dining while children boing on the trampoline. Parking for 6-7 cars adjacent. Follow the paths and hedgerows to the beaches, gardens and harbour of Lyme Regis, a quintessential yet classy English seaside town. Amuse children building sandcastles at the beach, crabbing in the harbour, fishing out at sea, fossil hunting along the Jurassic Coast or retreat for wonderful walks along the Coast. Stylish restaurants like Hix Oyster and Fish House are a short walk and the equally famous River Cottage a 15 minute drive. Casual dining is in abundance with the local honesty bakery for simple tasty, good honest fare. Springfield is the ideal destination for multiple families holidaying together or special occasion get togethers.More

Staying downstairs we look at the living space and going upstairs we explore the bedrooms. Most rooms in the house have sea views – the higher up you are in the house, the better the view. Living Spaces You may want to get waitrose to deliver groceries so you can prepare meals in the well equipped kitchen with 2 ovens, 2 fridges, 2 dishwashers and plenty of other goodies. Breakfast and kids meals are great at the kitchen table with the larger dining room table able to sit all guests. After meals, the snooker room adjacent has plenty of activities for all the family.

The French doors from the Dining Room, Games Room and Drawing Room opening on to the Verandah give a connection to the gardens and sea beyond.

In cooler months, stoke up the fire with a few logs and play a family game, read a magazine, book or paper. Slip next door to the TV Snug/Cinema room with large plasma screen, assortment of DVDs and Sky or bring an old movie and reminisce.

About the neighbourhood
Easily accessible, and only three hours from London and the Midlands, Lyme Regis is away from it all, nestling in the unspoilt West Dorset countryside. Part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site, and surrounded by areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Lyme Regis, the “Pearl of Dorset”, is famous for its fossils, its historic old town, its Cobb and its beaches. And now its a destination for food lovers, with Hix Oyster and Fish House in the town, and River Cottage HQ and Axminster Canteen both close by. The old town, dating back to the 14th century, is an ideal place to walk and explore the local shops, art galleries, newly replanted gardens with myriad places to stop to eat and drink.
Getting around
The Cobb attracts visitors – not just for its visual splendour and its magnificent naval architecture, but also for its connections with great literature. Indeed, people come from all over the world to see the steps where Louisa Musgrove fell in Jane Austen’s Persuasion; or to see where Meryl Streep stood, looking forlornly out to sea, in the film adaptation of John Fowles’ The French Lieutenant’s Woman. And art lovers are drawn to Lyme for both its beautiful scenery and for its wide range of art galleries Holiday makers will enjoy a family-friendly, sandy beach and an often-surprising micro-climate in the shelter of Lyme Bay. Marine Parade is a great place to walk, sit, enjoy the views and visit its small shops and eating places.
