  • "We had a really enjoyable and relaxing stay here."

    I was a little concerned about a couple of comments re maintenance, but the whole property has been recently redecorated throughout and is in excellent condition. All of the rooms are larger than they appear in the photos and there was plenty of space for eight of us, and the level of equipment was impressive. The cottage was warm and cosy, and the beds comfortable. Of course there is a pub opposite, live music on the Friday night and a NYE party, but the noise dies down after 11 and did not worry us. The owners are having some work done in the garden (which we did not use) and hopefully they will upgrade the whole outside space. Just a few comments/suggestions (all minor things) - The front door was sticking (due to the wet weather) and we struggled to open it from the inside on a couple of occaisions - this needs addressing urgently - the locks and key safe could do with replacing also - The TV remote was not working properly and needs replacing As I said all minor things and easy to rectify, but we would absolutely return here. Thanks for a great stay!

  • "A very enjoyable family weekend in Lyme Regis."

    Spacious house which was well maintained and very clean in good location close to the beach and the town. Private courtyard with property which we enjoyed using. The kitchen was well equipped. Good instructions with cottage and bonus of a parking spot in the nearby car park. Opposite a pub and you are located in the hub of the town but not overly noisy

  • "Very happy with the service from Lyme Bay."

    Combe Street Cottage is in a great location however, felt that the cottage was looking very tired. Paint was chipped and grubby. Most of the window blinds were broken and not all of the windows opened/closed completely. The kitchen floor looked filthy and the floor boards definitely need attention. Bed linen very tried and pillows had definitely seen better days. Stayed at Coombe Cottage a couple of years ago and loved it, hence the second booking. Regrettably won't be booking Combe Cottage again, in it's current state which, is a shame as its so well situated

    We are so pleased that we could assist you with your holiday. The owner does aim to maintain the cottage to a good standard, and I'm sure they will appreciate your constructive feedback, so that small improvements can continue to be made. We do hope that you will return again for another stay. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Dear Sykes, We stayed last week, and were astonished to find a cleaner had opened the front door and was standing across the street."

    There was a timid dog inside, which could have runaway. The reason she was there a day early was because on your website, it states bookings are for one week. However, it appears that you had only booked us for six nights! Do you even offer that as an option? Even if I had made an error in this, why did no one get in touch to check? Very poor service. The house was okay, although there was no booklet of instructions for oven bins etc. Again, annoying. There was a broken blind and a light bulb in the down stairs bedroom, and the garden was a bit of a mess. To add insult to injury you actually charged me an extra £260 for one night, although one nice gentleman said it would be £20. I am shocked to have to pay that much as you don’t rent out your cottages for one night only, so you would not have been renting it out on Thursday anyway! This is disgraceful profiteering, and I think a compromise could I have been reached. I am asking you to reconsider and refund me the £260, less the £20 I was told. Your current good name will not last if you treat your guests so harshly, Your sincerely, Stephanie Groves

  • "A nice house with good bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen."

    Hugely disappointing garden. Overgrown and unloved. Couldn’t leave our dog out there unattended.

    Thank you for your comments about the cottage which we will pass onto the owner as they maintain the rear garden. We would have happily assisted you during your stay if you had made use aware, so that you could have taken advantage of the good weather. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage in great location for the beach and restaurants, BUT not a peaceful week due to early morning delivery trucks and pub noise in the evening."

    Band playing till very late on the Saturday night with drinkers spilling out on to the road and even on our doorstep !

    We're sorry to hear that you experienced some noise disruption during your stay. The cottage is located within the centre of Lyme and the area does get livelier during the busy season. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "We loved the cottage, very comfortable although a couple of the beds were certainly firm!"

    It was great being so close to the beach and town but possibly a little too close to the pub which had a live band Friday and then a DJ playing House and Drum and Base on Saturday! Perhaps something in the description about it being a lively end of town! It would have been helpful to have a bit more information on the house, we had numerous messages about being careful on the stairs but nothing about the TV which wouldn't work consistently and nothing about what to do with the bed linen. We enjoyed the courtyard and sat out a lot in the evening, but the furniture probably needs a bit of maintenance soon! Lyme Bay holidays was very responsive to the phone call we made about the TV and the booking process was easy. We had a fantastic weekend and the House was a big part of that, many thanks.

  • "Accommodation was lovely."

    Great location and space for the 8 of us. Only comment would be the bed in the top big rear bedroom , mattress is very hard and quite uncomfortable. A mattress topper would really help.

  • "A large bush/tree fell down in the garden blocking access to the outdoor space which was the main reason we regularly book the cottage, nothing was done about it for the few days remaining of our stay, we would have been more than happy for workmen/gardeners to come and fix it whilst we were there."

    We're delighted you enjoyed another stay at Coombe Street Cottage. We're so sorry you had an issue with the Rose bush falling down, we note this as reported and this should have been dealt with on the day. Please accept our sincere apologies, though this is not a reflection on the standard of the property, and we hope this will not deter you from booking again. LBH Property Owner

  • "Lovely house - we have stayed here for two years in a row now."

    Nice living room and dining room, and a lovely garden. All four bedrooms are a good size, and the bunk beds are big enough for adults. Perfect location in the centre of town, although the pub over the road can be a bit noisy. Not noisy enough to stop us booking for a second year though!

    My mum fell in the shower which becomes very slippy when wet I think a bath mat should be supplied in downstairs bathroom I also think grab rails in both bathrooms for ease of getting in and out of bath and shower would be a good idea Upstairs almost all the rugs move and are slippy under foot and are starting to curl up at the edges so are becoming a trip hazard The bed in the back bedroom cracks and creaks when you move so it wakes you up House is in a good position

  • "Lovely holiday home just a few minutes from the seafront and shops."

    No big hills to climb as the cottage is in the heart of the town. Well equipped and very comfortable. Two keys would have been useful as we accidentally locked our one key inside but Lyme Bay Hoildays quickly sent us out a second key which was great service. With only one key we always needed to go out together. Highly recommend Coombe Street Cottageb and it’s delightful attractive small garden .

Nestled within the town centre itself, Coombe Street Cottage has great access to local amenities and attractions and is perfect for a family or group of couples.

Accessed via steps to the rear of the property, be welcomed into an airy sitting room, where a homely feel and stylish grey furniture encourages you to recline beside the woodburning stove and warm your feet.

The kitchen opens up onto the sitting area outside, making al fresco dining a must, and with plenty of space within the kitchen, all guests are welcomed to enjoy social cooking, utilising the many amenities available, before dining at the large table in the dining room.

Follow the stairs to find a large shower-room just waiting to soak the sand from your hair after a long day at the beach, or there is the option of a relaxing bath in the spacious bathroom before you settle down into one of the three bedrooms available.

Firstly, you will find an amazing king-size room where high ceilings with roof beams and traditional wooden flooring add to the historical feel of this traditional cottage apartment, a selection of seating is perfect for morning coffee and skylights and a vast amount of storage make this room simply spectacular.

A second room is a double where a theme of green adds to the wonderful layout of this space, with traditional roofbeams, wooden flooring and shelves for storage, and there is also the option of a twin that can be set up as a king-size on request and a bunk room, both with green furnishings and storage.

Outside a raised area with seating nestled within the shrubs and a quiet private garden creates a wonderful space for breakfast outside.

The local area of Lyme Regis makes a fantastic holiday destination for the whole family, with the Dinosaurland Fossil Museum and local art galleries and craft shops just a short walk away.
