“Fantastic cottage”

We had a great 3night stay here. The cottage was cosy and very well equipped (amazing shower!) there was a lovely welcome pack with fresh flowers and a bottle of fizz (very much appreciated on NYE!) and fresh eggs milk tea biscuits even some fudge! Everything was immaculate inside and I thought the cottage was much bigger and more spacious than it appeared on the photos on trip advisor. The spot is lovely too, a really quiet location where you can walk in to Lyme Regis easily. All in all a fantastic place to stay, would definitely recommend it!!

“LITTLE HEAVEN”

This little cottage for us was just perfect. Well maintained, everything you need for a self catering stay and a fab thoughtful welcoming pack. The cottage consists of a single ground floor room which incorporates a lounge and kitchen. A fab spiral staircase takes you to the first floor where you will find a cosy bedroom and lovely shower room and toilet. Outside there is a car port and elevated sitting area which would be great outside the winter months and or dressed up warm...drop of mulled wine...very "cwtchy" .This place is a bit of a gem ..and in a peasceful quiet spot just outside Lyme Regis.

“Perfect Little Cottage”
Reviewed November 3, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

My girlfriend and I stayed here for our joint birthday weekend away.

The whole cottage is very comforting and decorated to the highest standard. Ideal for a couple's weekend away.

The location is peaceful with Lyme Regis just a walk away. The cottage is just a small five minutes walk to the local pub, which serves delicious traditional pub food and local ales.

A welcoming gift of a fresh crunchy loaf, eggs, milk and bubbly added the perfect touch to the perfect short stay.

Many thanks.

“Best Birthday weekend!!”

Me and my boyfriend decided to book a long weekend away for my birthday, and I found this little gem! I'm so glad I booked. When we arrived we were greeted by the lovely Rosemary, she showed us around and introduced us to their cockerels and their chicks, this was quite an experience! It was sunny so we popped down to the beach, which was beautiful, everyone seemed really upbeat and friendly. We got back to have a glass of prosecco (thanks for this, and the rest of the treats!) on the roof terrace. Unfortunately the rest of the weekend was a bit wet but we still made the most of it. The shower is absolutely gorgeous, the bed was so comfy (some of the best night's sleep I've had!) and the roost is well equipped with DVDs, a stereo with Ipod dock, board games (we loved Trivial Pursuit!). Can't wait to come back in the summer! Thanks for a pleasant stay!

“Perfect for a weekend get away”

Little Roost was perfect for a sanity restoring weekend break, it had everything we needed; warm and cosy, well laid out and well stocked with the essentials. A welcome pack, including wine and flowers, were a lovely touch.

The cottage is in a good location for exploring the local area. Lyme Regis is easily accessible by foot, but you'll need walking boots (and if venturing out after dark a torch is essential).

Would recommend Amid Giants and Idols for coffee (made by a proper coffee aficionado) and The Town Mill Supper Club for dinner. Also Herbies on the front do cracking chips!
