“Brilliant cottage - Perfect for Lyme Regis”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

person found this review helpful

This cottage was great - stayed for one week in April. Everything was easy to arrange- the cottage is in a narrow street with public parking available further up the road, the keys are left in a secure key box next t the front door. The owner Mark emailed us to ask what we needed and provide instructions (there were also details in the cottage waiting for us).

The cottage was clean and tidy when we arrived (if I'm being picky some of the rooms could do with a lick of paint to touch up some of the bits that are peeling, also the kitchen is starting to look worse for wear) washing, cleaning materials were provided, lots of leaflets with ideas for places to go, WiFi code was waiting for us (thank God as the phone signal is patchy at best). The bedrooms were light and nicely decorated, the sitting room/dining area is darker as it's daylight is blocked by the narrow road - however the garden is a complete sun trap.

Words of warning - the public parking is easy to arrange (around £27 for a week via the internet) however although it is only a 4 minute walk away it is quite a steep hill, not great for heavy bags - drop them off then drive back up the hill. The front windows have no form of curtains which is fine but you will have to get used to people poking their heads through to have a look - I started to wave at them :)

All in all it was a great cottage and was perfect for our stay. It is such a short walk to everything in Lyme Regis.

“Charming cottage. Fabulous location.”
Reviewed January 17, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

I stayed here recently for a few days and was very happy that I did so. I Felt at home as soon as I walked in. Everything was as described, clean & tidy etc. and well equipped. I was travelling solo so had plenty of space but definitely enough room for a family or group of friends. The location was ideal - just a quick walk down to the sea. Perfect for a relaxing weekend... Or longer.

“Lovely homely cottage in great location”
Reviewed November 4, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Stayed here in October with my husband, our two children (age 4 and 7), and our dog. The accommodation is lovely, clean and comfortable - with everything you need - including s stair gate, clothes airer, board games etc. The location is ideal - with all of Lyme Regis' attractions just a short walk away. Highly recommend!

“Character cottage in Lyme's 'artisan quarter'”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Lavender Cottage is in an excellent location on an historic street in Lyme Regis, very close to the sea and to interesting shops and restaurants. It is a great base for exploring Lyme Regis and for some local walks. Parking is a short walk away up a hill, but we only used the car a couple of times during our week's stay. A nice extra touch in the cottage would be a selection of DVDs, as TV channels limited, and novels relating to Lyme Regis (which has so many literary connections). We were able to get internet connection quite consistently on a laptop, but not at all on an iPad. We could get mobile signal upstairs in the cottage.

“Lovely, bright seaside cottage”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Had a wonderful stay at Lavender Cottage. The house is centrally located in Lyme with just a three minute stroll to the beach front and a great bakers a few doors down. Tidy, well equipped and tastefully decorated. Would certainly recommend / consider a return. Jon

“Cosy cottage in excellent central location”
Reviewed July 24, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Double bed & bathroom on second floor; 2 single beds & bathroom on first floor; kitchen & sitting room on ground floor; also nice sunny garden. All as advertised. 5 minute walk to car park; 5 minute walk to the sea front. Numerous pubs, restaurants & fish & chip shops in vicinity. Sandy beach when the tide's out; sea calm and clear. Weather brilliant when we were there - continental atmosphere on the promenade. Loved Lyme Regis.
