Beautifully refurbished Dorset luxury coastguard cottage

Set a couple of streets back from the famous Cobb and originally built for Lyme Regis’ coastguards, Lyme Cottage has been completely refurbished to a high standard and is now available as a self catering holiday cottage. The renovations to the Grade 2 listed property have both revived the charm of the original building and incorporated modern facilities to ensure you have a fantastic break.

In a nutshell...

Refurbed coastguard cottage with sea view
Sleeps 4 + 2

1 double bedroom
1 twin / double bedroom
1 double sofabed

1 bathroom with bath/shower
1 bathroom with shower

Set just back from the Cobb
2 mins door to sandy beach


Lyme Cottage is small but in no sense pokey. It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a well planned kitchen and a deck/garden with sea view. From the window in the double room you can see the Cobb and the second bedroom has specially designed beds that can be used as twins or zipped together to form a luxury kingsize double if you prefer. The cottage also has a comfy sofa bed providing an extra double should you need it for drop-in guests. We now have three galleries of photos to peruse.

Lyme Regis on the Jurassic Coast

Lyme Regis lies at the heart of a designated World Heritage Site in the West corner of Dorset where it meets Devon - the striking scenery along the Jurassic Coast provides the backdrop for cliff walks and fossil collecting. You'll be spoilt for choice for eating out in Lyme - though you'll be tempted to eat in once you've settled at the Cottage!

Winter in Lyme Regis

Winter in Lyme Regis with an open fire

During the winter months Lyme Bay offers stunning views that change minute to minute as storms roll through. Wrap up and take a walk down to the Cobb to watch the waves crash over the breakwaters, or listen to the ferocious seas from your window... Lyme Cottage is a fantastic winter retreat. The spectacular Dorset and Devon countryside is also on your doorstep - breathtaking at any time of year. After exploring you can return to a warm cottage, pour yourself a glass of something and enjoy the long winter nights by the fire!

Winter prices start at just £950 per week. Click for more details.
