Below is a collection of ideas and things to do in Lyme Regis.

There are many ‘Heritage’ coastal pathways both east and west of the town. As these paths wind their way along cliffs and through woodlands, stunning sea and landscapes may be enjoyed. Our favourites include: ‘The Undercliff’ one of the first of Britain’s National Nature Reserves, ‘Black Ven,’ ‘Stonebarrow Hill, ‘Trinity Hill’ and ‘Golden Cap’ the highest point on the south coast.

On the Sea

Water sports are a major part of life in Lyme. Swimming, Water Skiing, Sailing and Windsurfing keep the famous Cobb Harbour alive with activity during the summer months. Our local Scuba Club also offers exciting wreck diving during the summer months. (subject to proof of qualifications) Coastal pleasure trips, mackerel fishing and deep sea fishing are all available from Lyme’s quaint harbour. The traditional wooden fishing boats leave the harbour throughout the summer. Dolphins have been spotted playing in the bow wave on many trips over the last few years.

Many wonderful private houses, gardens and National Trust properties are open to the public in the Devon and Dorset area. We are happy to arrange transport and packed lunches should you wish to enjoy a day away.

“Wedding weekend”

“Wedding weekend”
“We had 40 family and friends staying for our wedding weekend and I honestly cannot say enough about the staff and how friendly and helpful they were. It was like they were part of our family! The views and food were just fantastic! We have already booked for our year anniversary. Just the best place for an outdoors wedding. Our love to all, xxx”

“What a gem…….”

“We stayed here last minute and are thoroughly pleased we did. A real mix of tradition, comfort and hospitality. Great views along the coast and down to the beach. Our bedroom was well equipped and appointed and exceptionally comfy. The restaurant served excellent breakfast and evening meal with all the staff attentive and friendly. The gardens and morning rooms have fantastic views. A real find and we will definitely return!!”
