Lyme Regis, Dorset
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 so in 2019 are celebrating 25 years of happy holidays. 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 BBC iplayer/ITV Hub, a Blu-Ray/DVD player with HD upscaling and numerous board games.. Paintings and photographs of Lyme decorate the walls. 2019 started with a refurbishment programme and most of the cottage has been redecorated and a new renewable energy heating system installed.
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.
