The Retreat is a newly constructed, contemporary cedar-clad building, which features eco-friendly materials, including a luxury king-size Vi-Spring bed and crisp white linens, natural wood furniture, pure wool Axminster carpet and a well-appointed modern ensuite bathroom. The generous 30 sqm space has been designed to feel spacious and private, while the underfloor heating creates a warm and cosy experience. There is also a fridge, microwave convection oven, kettle, toaster and small sink, as well as a two-person dining table - handy for laptop working or a takeaway from one of the many local eateries within walking distance or local delivery. Catch up on your favourite programmes with a brand new, large-screen TV.
Dedicated off-street parking is provided alongside the property, with a private entrance for exclusive guest use. Opposite is a lovely lawned area planted with silver birch trees, with a wooden bench where guests are welcome to relax and enjoy their surroundings.
The property is cleaned to a high standard, and the large fluffy white towels and Egyptian cotton bedding are professionally laundered for your wellbeing and comfort.

Where you’ll be

Dorset, England, United Kingdom

Known as The Pearl of Dorset, Lyme Regis is a charming Georgian seaside resort with both sand and pebble beaches and an ancient Cobb harbour. It is situated in Lyme Bay on the Jurassic Coast at the Devon-Dorset Border
 
Lyme boasts chic shops, quirky cafes, an outstanding bakery, butcher, artisan fudge and icecream makers and pizzerias, plus world-class restaurants (Mark Hix's Oyster and Fish House and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage HQ close by), alongside delightful older shops selling books, fossils and gifts. Set on the spectacular Jurassic Coast in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
 
Culturally vibrant, Lyme has its own theatre, museums, galleries and a listed Art Deco cinema, with numerous festivals throughout the year in celebration of the local arts, culture, food, music and geology. In addition, there is a wonderful golf course, popular sailing club and the renowned boat building school. The town is noted for the fossils found in the cliffs and beaches, and this beautiful coastline has been granted World Heritage Site status because of the incredible earth science interest.
It is also a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with lovely unspoilt surrounding countryside, much of it owned by the National Trust, providing stunning walks from your front door. Renowned authors who have been inspired by their time here include Jane Austen, Beatrix Potter and famously John Fowles, whose book (and subsequent film) 'The French Lieutenant's Woman' was set in Lyme Regis. More recently, Broadchurch was filmed just a few miles east in Bridport/West Bay.

Lyme Regis boasts awesome scenery and a special mystique, making it the perfect resort for all seasons. With its historic harbour and iconic features, there is something for everyone. Due to its position in Lyme Bay, Lyme Regis enjoys its own micro climate that delivers warm sheltered summers and mild winters. There are fantastic shops, restaurants and pubs to explore and enjoy, not to mention the breathtaking natural scenery of the Jurassic Coast.

Photographers and walkers will love the stunning natural beauty of the area, with year-round spectacular views, sunrise/sunsets and views of the moon over the sea. Autumn and winter provide the perfect time to avoid the summer crowds and enjoy long walks and gourmet food to eat in or take away. Ask us for recommendations or check out our guidebook.
