We have a double and twin room available. Both are en-suite with shower and w.c., centrally heated with probably the best rural view in Dorset over the Marshwood Vale and the village of Whitchurch Canonicorum. Both rooms have tea and coffee making facilities (and a chance to sample the splendid products from the local Moores Dorset Biscuit company), colour TV with teletext, radio with clock alarm, hairdryer, shaver points and free wi-fi.
Our breakfasts are served using locally sourced produce wherever possible. We offer a full English or Continental breakfast or you might like to try our locally smoked salmon and cream cheese bagels or smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. If you prefer a vegetarian option or have special dietry requirements then we can also offer this with prior notice.
There are a number of inns and restaurants in Lyme Regis, Bridport and the surrounding area. In our immediate vicinity the Five Bells Inn is a pleasant short walk down a country lane. It’s an unpretentious friendly local and offers good locally produced beer (Palmers of Bridport) and food at reasonable prices. The serve the best fish and chips in the area.
Whether you visit us in order to walk, cycle or generally explore, there are many things to see and do in one of the prettiest parts of England. Why not start off right from our front door with a six minute walk to the top of Hardown Hill (National Trust) to enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of three counties, Lyme Bay, stretching from beyond Portland Bill in the East, right across to Dartmoor. Golden Cap, the highest headland on the South Coast is a favourite walk with our visitors. Test your skills at finding 190 million year old fossils on the local beaches. If you are staying more than two nights then we can lend you fossil hunting equipment, binoculars, maps and walking guides.
Our neighbour Martin operates Marshwood Trials, offering several tours of the local scenic highspots using electric bikes. It’s a great way to see a lot of the beauty of the area. Even if you haven’t ridden a bike in ages. Once tried, the chances are you will want to buy one yourself as they are great fun.
