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. Our latest Visit England inspection saw us retain our 84% rating with a Gold Award given to those properties for which owners go the extra mile. Although the 'We're Good to Go' Industry Standard award introduced to deal with the pandemic has now been discontinued (from 31/3/22) our visitors can be reassured that we will continue with thorough cleaning protocols.

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.

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 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.

See the Cobb each morning without getting out of bed. Watch the world go by from the 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 Cottage

As 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 fireside chairs, a nest of tables and a bookcase. For entertainment there is a 43” HD TV with BBC iPlayer/ITV Hub and a Blu-Ray/DVD player with HD upscaling. Paintings and photographs of Lyme decorate the walls.


The 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 Room

Coat hooks, washing machine, tumble drier, wash basket & pegs, ironing board and iron 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.


The 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 1

This 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” 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 2

Overlooking 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 and board games for children and adults and two bedside lamps.


Duvets, pillows and bedlinen are provided and beds are made up for the number of visitors staying or as requested. All beds have mattress toppers and mattress and pillow protectors. A travel cot is available on request - visitors bring own bedding/linen for cot.

Safety & Mobility Considerations

There 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: 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.


Cars 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 £8.00 per day (24hrs). JustPark app enables you to book and pay.


A 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. Freestanding electric fireplace heaters have been added to the living room and double room fireplaces more to give a focal point with a flame effect, than because they are needed for heating. There is a heated towel rail and thermostatically controlled heater in the bathroom. The windows and doors are double-glazed throughout.


Gas, electricity and Wi-Fi are included in our rates.
