This charming grade 2 listed property is unique , quirky and spacious.
Located in the heart of Lyme Regis it is central to this quaint and wonderful little town.
Sea views , across from the beach, this grand place is the perfect pad to relax with family or friends. very special property

The space

This apartment, part of a Grade II listed building, has been fully refurbished with a new kitchen and bathrooms. The owner has made efforts to retain much of the character of this historic building, incorporating original features such as wood panelling, window seats and exposed beams. A wood burner has been fitted into the lovely old fireplace in the lounge and the furnishings and decor reflect a homely and relaxed approach to the holiday experience.
If you are looking for a minimalistic clean lined space then this property is not for you but if you want a holiday to remember with beautiful decor , stunning views , where you can either snuggle up in front of the log fire with a good book and a glass of wine or spend some time exploring Lyme and it's wonderful places to eat or spending a day on the fantastic beach with the children , then this property is perfect.
As well as a wonderful space this property is all about location.
You are in amongst everything going on in Lyme which is a jazzy , vibrant , arty town.
The property sits directly opposite the beautiful, iconic Guildhall Hall and the wonderful museum. You can see these beautiful buildings from your window and of course the very special jurassic Coast can also be seen or you can just sit gazing out of the window and watch the town go from sleepy and tranquil to vibrant and exciting.
I would highly recommend getting up a little early one day and take a 2 min walk to the beach. This view especially in the early mornings is breathtaking. Lyme Regis is by no means commercial and it is not your typical seaside resort. It remains quaint and most people will tell you that Lyme Regis is a very special little place which is why people come back time and time again and it remains one of the top 5 most searched for places in the U.K. !!

This is a charming and comfortable place to stay in the heart of Lyme Regis. There was lots of space for the seven of us (girly weekend away) and would be for eight. The kitchen is well equipped and the house is so interesting and cosy. Lots of lovely things to do and see in Lyme. Only one dedicated space for a car but cheap parking for a weekend only a 10 minute walk If needed. Dropping off luggage can be done in short stay car park opposite. If you're interested in fossils read Remarkable Creatures before you visit.

We enjoyed our stay in Lyme, the property is very conveniently located for all amenities, especially the seafront. The property is full of character, the kitchen is spacious and very well equipped , Heidi, was very helpful in recommending places to eat. There was no WiFi, but a new router arrived while we were there and BT were due to come to fix it.

Bigger and even more charming than it looks in the photographs. This well equipped house is a perfect location to explore Lyme Regis. Close the the beach, shops, restaurants and attractions, we couldn't have hoped for a more relaxing environment. We really hope to stay here again!

Great location for access to the beach and shops (and for view into the top deck of the passing buses!) Wonderful house, full of character. Comfortable, warm and spacious. Better bedding, i.e. cotton sheets and duvet cover rather than a polyester mix would make the difference between a really good and a superb airbnb experience.

Hi, I'm Heidi and I am the manager for both these wonderful properties. I live in the village which enables me to be able to help ,advice and give good local information about Uplyme, Lyme Regis and the surrounding area.
Lucy is the valley lodge owner and has other holiday properties in the u.k.
Valley lodge is a very special little place and I am not surprised by its success. It is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and inside the cabin it is cosy and beautifully decorated. This is why many guests return time and time again and the reviews are fantastic.
I also manage the spacious town house in Lyme Regis for Guy who is a music teacher. This property is also gorgeous and is all about location.
Both properties are very different but they are both very special in their own way. I am extremely proud of them both and I totally believe in their ability to give couples , family and friends the most fantastic holiday accommodation. As you will see I have taken on more properties over time and I now host other homes for their owners through Airbnb that are all unique and wonderful.
I feel extremely lucky to be able to be a part of peoples holidays and I hope I have given you all the chance to make some wonderful memories by staying in one of my properties.
I have good experience on the guests needs. I love to be helpful and hope that I make your holiday from the booking ,to the day you leave as enjoyable and trouble free as I can .I am passionate about fabulous places to stay. At home I am an avid reader of all books , I walk lots , really enjoy going to local restaurants and Lyme Regis has many.
I and many other locals count our blessings to be a part of this town. It is fun , beautiful and it still takes my breath away whether it's in the middle of the winter or high summer.
All of these properties and their owners have their individual styles but each one I would recommend to my own family and friends.
