  • "Absolutely loved our stay at Riverside Cottage."

    The cottage was just perfect and gave the four of us (two adults, two children) the most fantastic short break. It’s decorated beautifully so better than home from home. Kitchen is well equipped so we ate in each night. Nice to have a holiday rental with better than basic crockery etc - super big mugs for morning cuppa! Weather was mixed so happy it was warm and cosy and puzzles and DVDs kept us busy! The house is nice and spacious especially compared to St Ives cottages we’re used to so it was great to have plenty of room for four. Location was great, lovely path by the river Lynn leading straight from the front garden into town and to the sea. Parking was a big bonus and second car we easily managed to get a spot just up the road. Definitely booking to come again next year!

  • "We enjoyed our stay in 1 Riverside very much."

    Any maintenance issues were attended to promptly. The bed was very comfortable. The lined curtains were excellent in the bedroom. We found the induction hob difficult to use and would have appreciated instruction leaflets for this and the oven. The television was far too complex for us and the owner exchanged it for a simpler version which suited our needs perfectly. We would love to stay in this cottage again but as we are now in our eighties we would need to have a walk-in shower, rather than a shower in the bath. A great holiday - many thanks.

  • "Lovely little cottage to stay in."

    We love the river flowing outside and seagulls waking up early. Beautiful beach and lovely town. We enjoyed dinner at The Rockpoint Inn and a bakery breakfast order at The Town Mill. We love it here and it was also carnival week so very exciting. We'll be back.

  • "This property is over-priced and does not present particularly close to the photographs."

    The mugs were all brown stained, lighting sockets and lighting in general appeared shoddy and only partly working. The lamp in the main bedroom does not work. All the windows frames are in poor condition with rusty fittings. It presents as a property given a cheap make-over twenty or more years ago spending the minimum.

    We are sorry to hear that the property did not meet your expectations. The owner has visited the property, and also a member of our team. The photos and marketing are a fair representation of the property. The majority of guests who have stayed, have been happy with the property, and indicated that they plan to return. We hope you enjoyed your time in Lyme Regis. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "A lovely little cottage."

    We loved the walk into town and to Uplyme. The weather was kind. Really enjoyed our stay.

  • "The location of the property was excellent, only a very short walk into the centre of Lyme Regis."

    We felt however compared to recent holiday cottages we have stayed in it was poorly presented, tired decor and a distinct lack of home comforts. We thought for the price we paid we would be getting something quite luxurious but this was not the case.

  • "We found this an ideal spot, having stayed next door a few years ago."

    It’s a pleasant walk in to town and the seafront but away from the hustle and bustle. Turn the other way for lovely walks out in to the countryside.

  • "Great base on the coast."

    Sunshine all week - how lucky, scorhcio! Jurassic jungle walk to Seaton has got to be done - really enjoyed that (and the bus back), good experience. Boylos is a good place for SUP lessons! Italia do very nice pizza.

  • "No oven gloves and no response to our query issues on arrival, still no response before we left after a week."

    I'm sorry to hear that you had some small issues upon arrival to the property. My colleague did attempt to contact you to offer for our team to attend to rectify the issues. I hope you had an enjoyable stay despite these small issues. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Lovely warm, cosy, quirky cottage for tall people."

    We enjoyed our stay and hope to come again. Easy access to walks up and down the River Lym. Mulled wine on sea front. Many excellent restaurants especially Lyme Bay Cafe and Harbour Inn. Lyme Bay Holidays were very attentive and responsive. All in all we had a great time. Thank you.

    Very comfortable and in a great location. The Christmas tree and prosecco were much appreciated. Thank you!

  • "The property had everything we needed."

    The location was brilliant. A real bonus to have a parking space, we parked on the day of arrival and didn't move the car until the day we left. A great little place a explore and walk out from. The welcome pack was a nice touch, thank you.

  • "The cottage was in a quiet position with a pleasant walk into Lyme Regis and Uplyme."

    We found the cottage chilly even with the heating on. The staircase was quite steep and we feel that a handrail from top to bottom handrail would be safer and a lick of paint. The TV sound wasn't great. The twin bedroom needs an adult wardrobe and drawers. The lighting above the kitchen table wasn't great. An oven glove would be useful. Saying all of that we enjoyed our stay.

The property

Nestled into the quaint seaside of Lyme Regis, Dorset, 1 Riverside Cottages presents a tastefully renovated traditional cottage with handy off-road parking, making this a great spot to explore the town centre just a short walk away.

This cottage sleeps four and is therefore perfect for families.

Stepping through this property, you are sure to be charmed by the spacious open-plan living area, where generous windows soak the space in natural light, creating an airy feel in this homely cottage.

A sitting area with a selection of sofas and a woodburning stove offer a place to sit and enjoy the opulence of this renovated traditional cottage, and when mealtimes call, make your way to the kitchen where a delightful layout and ample amenities will encourage you to cook up a storm, presenting it on the central dining table provided.

With such a wonderful space downstairs, you will be pleased to see that the same care and attention has been paid to the bedrooms, beginning with a king-size with calming hues of sage and cream, a view over the lovely garden and picturesque surroundings of the property and extra seating, as well as the addition of a homely patchwork quilt, and the twin room carries the same calming décor, with decorative stars lining the walls, making this the perfect space for the kids to snuggle down for the night.

When in need of a refreshing shower or a relaxing soak amongst the bubbles, the bathroom will provide you with both, continuing the sage theme of the rest of the house.

Outside, you will not be disappointed, because this cottage provides you with not one but two gardens, a rear and a front, both with a patio and furniture, perfect for morning coffees before beginning your day, and with the raised patio at the back of the house providing a more private spot. The stunning seaside town of Lyme Regis offers activities in abundance, famous for being the heart of the Jurassic Coast, encouraging visitors to enjoy walks along the bays and harbours, and you can even look for fossils amongst the rocky shores of Monmouth Beach and Lyme Regis Fossil Beach.

If you love history and wish to explore the local heritage, head over to one of the tow local museums or a short drive away you will find historical sites including Axminster Heritage Centre, Blackbury Camp and Maiden Castle.

With so many eateries to choose from, the town will leave you spoilt for choice, with cafes serving tea and cake, a variety of cuisine at local restaurants and pubs where you can recline in the evening with a glass of your favourite beverage.

For animal lovers, the perfect day out will be a visit to the Donkey Sanctuary, Wildlife Park or Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium, a great day out for the whole family.
