Lyme Regis, Dorset
We are delighted that visitors hoping to come to Cliff Cottage have been given the go ahead from 4th July to travel to Lyme Regis. We have successfully applied for the Visit England 'We're Good to Go' Industry Standard mark which means that we have followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, have a Risk Assessment and thorough cleaning protocols in place. As government guidance changes further over the coming weeks and months we will be ready to adapt how the cottage is run accordingly.
2019/2020 VisitEngland report: 84% Gold Award: Cliff Cottage is situated in an idyllic location on the sea front at Lyme Regis. Guests can enjoy superb views of The Cobb. Excellent quality improvements since the last visit enabling the Gold Award to be achieved.
Part of Lyme's historic landscape since the early 1800's, Cliff Cottage is one of the delightful pink cottages, set back off the seafront, in a perfect position overlooking the beautiful Bay and famous Cobb. Seconds away from the beach, the cottage also has easy access to the shops, galleries, cafés and pubs.
Cliff Cottage provides a comfortable and competitively priced base for visitors of all ages wishing to explore the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, the South West Coast Path, fossil hunt, paint, write, walk, cycle and tour out of season as well as those seeking a traditional British seaside family holiday. Book a week or a short break and join in the fun of the Fossil Festival, Lyme Slime Festival, Guitars on the Beach or the Great Lyme Regis Pudding Race, officially declared one of the UK's 'most brilliant but bonkers' events! Perfect for romantic weekends, mid-week adventures and getting away from it all. You'll want to come again.
The cottage and gardens are set into the hillside with steps leading from the upper level of Marine Parade up to the front door and steps in the front garden leading to the sun-terrace where visitors can wine and dine whilst enjoying the superb view of Lyme Bay. Garden furniture, an Outback BBQ and children’s beach toys are provided. The Rose Family have been sharing their treasured seaside ‘home from home’ with couples and families since 1994. All bookings are dealt with personally by Sue Rose and every effort is made to make sure that everything in the cottage is right for you.
See the Cobb each morning without getting out of bed. Watch the world go by from the sun terrace. No hassle getting to the beach with children and everything but the kitchen sink - it’s less than a minute away. Even the garden walls smile at Cliff Cottage - you will see why if you book!
The CottageAs you go through the front door you enter the living room, a bright, cosy room overlooking the front garden. It has a two seater sofa, two armchairs, a nest of tables and a bookcase. For entertainment there is a new 43” HD TV with BBCiplayer/ITV Hub, a Blu-Ray/DVD player with HD upscaling and numerous board games. Paintings and photographs of Lyme decorate the walls.
KitchenThe kitchen is well equipped for visitors who prefer to dine at ‘home’ rather than in one of Lyme’s many excellent restaurants. The table has a heat-resistant surface and there are four chairs. The kitchen window overlooks the rose garden at the back of the cottage. It has a large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, gas hob and built in integrated electric oven/grill. Under cupboard lighting and dimmable ceiling lights can be as soft or as bright as required and there are USB charging sockets.
Utility RoomCoat hooks, washing machine, tumble drier, ironing board, iron and high chair are stored in this room just off the kitchen with the back door leading out to the rose garden where there is a washing line.
BathroomThe original resurfaced roll top bath has a grab rail and electric shower. There is also a grab rail next to the toilet, a sink, shaving point, mirror, wall mounted thermostatically controlled heater, a heated towel rail and electric extractor fan.
Bedroom 1This room’s great attraction is ‘the view’! With the shutters and windows open you can enjoy the sounds of the sea and look at the picturesque Cobb without moving from the double bed (4’6” antique pine) with drawers. Other furnishings include a pine dressing table with mirror and stool, a built in wardrobe, chair and a full length mirror. USB charging sockets are on either side of the bed. Hairdryer and magnifying mirror.
Bedroom 2Overlooking the rose garden, this room has two single 3’ beds with drawers, a pine dressing table with mirror and stool and a built in wardrobe with a selection of children’s toys. There are bookshelves with a selection of books for children and adults and two bedside lamps.
BeddingDuvets, pillows and bedlinen are provided and beds are made up for the number of visitors staying. All beds have mattress and pillow protectors and for the foreseeable future these and all bedding and pillows will be washed and or rotated at each changeover.
Safety & Mobility ConsiderationsThere are steps leading up to the property with handrails fitted and lighting that comes on automatically as you approach. Grab rails are fitted in the porch and bathroom to help those who have mobility concerns. Once in the property all rooms are on one level. A comprehensive Access Statement is available online: https://www.accessibilityguides.org/content/cliff-cottage. Mains powered smoke and heat detectors are installed at the property and gas safety and PAT electrical tests are carried out annually. Please contact Sue direct to discuss mobility and access concerns.
ParkingCars may be driven along Marine Parade (Lyme’s seafront) and parked on the lower level of the Parade for unloading and loading purposes only. There are two Long Stay car parks in Lyme – Charmouth Road & Holmbush – both with plenty of spaces and it is possible to pay for more than one day at a time. Cost £2.00 per day (24hrs).
HeatingA high performance, low energy, user friendly heating system means that the cottage is warm and cosy throughout the year with radiators in the living room, kitchen and both bedrooms. A freestanding electric fireplace heater has been added to the lounge, more to give a focal point with a flame effect, than because it is needed for heating. There is a heated towel rail and thermostatically controlled heater in the bathroom. The windows and doors are double-glazed throughout.
ServicesGas, electricity and Wi-Fi are included in the weekly and short break rates.
CleaningAcquiring the Visit England Industry Standard mark "We're Good to Go" means that we have followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, have a Risk Assessment in place and a process to maintain cleanliness in the property with the appropriate disinfecting products. Arrival time will now be 5pm to allow for the extra cleaning and disinfecting required. Cleaning materials provided for guests. We ask all guests to leave the cottage in a clean and tidy condition.
