  • "Hi we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ivy Cottage and thank you for the welcome pack it was much appreciated."

    If I had to mention anything negative I would say to make sure the place is thoroughly clean between lettings including the crockery and cutlery. Also the bedding is very tired and grey. We loved the compactness, the location and that it was warm and comfy. Would definitely recommend and go back.

  • "Thank you for your feedback."

    The cottage is located on Sherborne Lane, a very old and picturesque street in the centre of the town. Much of Lyme is built on steep hills. Guests can normally stop at the bottom of the lane to unload/load before finding a space at the public carpark. We will arrange to take some up to date photos to show the steps and staircase. We do hope that you enjoyed exploring the local areas. The Lyme Bay Team

  • "This was our 3rd visit to Ivy cottage."

    We have always enjoyed our stays. The update to a smart TV has rectified the only minor issue we used to have.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Ivy cottage."

    The location was excellent, on a quiet street but very close to the shops, town mill and beach front. The house was cosy and had very comfortable beds. Our kids loved the xbox and toys/games, and we appreciated the various streaming services provided on the TV for after they had gone to bed! We plan to return to Lyme Regis next year and will book this cottage again.

  • "Listed as having a dishwasher but there was not one."

    Very misleading since we filtered properties on this as it was a must for our comfort. Curtains very thin and let in too much light. Lovely cottage though and enjoyed the little extras like xbox and boardgames.

  • "Nowhere in bedroom to plug hairdryer/ straighteners in near mirror."

    Loads of storage , but bit off putting as loads owners stuff in them. Cottage pretty, beds very comfortable . T.V, . Almost impossible to use, constantly breaks up and sound goes, unable to even get BBC 1. Very disappointing as was there on day of Queens Funeral. Be handy have coffee table in front of sofa. Access a nightmare for anyone with mobility issues. Struggled to pull a suitcase up and down hill while using a stick to. Please make clearer in your details nit possible to get car down lane in order ti drop passengers/ luggages off. unsuitable anyone with mobility issues. We also spent a fortune on parking . Felt somewhat trapped in cottage as not possible to be picked up outside cottage and struggled walking up and down the hill.

  • "One front door key and two garden keys was the only problem, should be the other way round"

  • "Top-notch location, and a really cosy downstairs with a nice sofa, plenty of space for us to have meals."

    Quaintly unsquare in pretty much all aspects! Upstairs a spacious main bedroom and a smaller kids' room (but still plenty of room) plus bathroom. No problem with parking in the Woodmead car park (£60 for a seven-day permit) though it was designed for 1980s-size cars so it's a bit tight! Pros: Great location (~5 min from beach), nice to have a little garden to sit in in the sun, cosy and quaint cottage, comfy beds. Cons: Curtains are very thin so rooms are *very* light in the morning; only winter duvets supplied (10.5 tog in 30C heat? No thanks!); shower attachment not brilliant so you have to hold the shower head if you don't want to sit on the taps; no dishwasher (listing wrong). But these are pretty minor cons.

  • "This is the second time we have stayed at the cottage."

    We love the cottage, it has a great homely feel. We also like the location, close to everything.

  • "Overall it was a great accommodation and stay."

    We did find however the bed in the master bedroom to be quite small. It would have been nicer if it had been bigger (e.g. queen size). For a stay longer than 3 days it could have been uncomfortable.

The property

A period cottage tucked away into the picturesque town of Lyme Regis, Dorset.

With easy access to local facilities and activities, Ivy Cottage is ideal for a family looking to explore the Jurassic coast.

Be welcomed by a quaint front garden full of shrubs and a purple door as you unpack from the near by car parking and enter the property.

After a long journey, make your way into the sitting/dining room where you will be able to rest your feet in one of the stylish grey sofas, marvelling at the tasteful renovation within the cottage where white walls and wooden flooring mixes with the traditional wooden roofbeams and fireplace to create a space full of character, and there is a dining table for all guests to enjoy a heart-warming meal together beside the large bay windows that draw in the natural light from outside.

When stomachs start to rumble, a well fitted kitchen with wooden furniture and roofbeams creates a great space for the designated chef to try out local produce.

Climb the steep stairs to find two bedrooms, a double with fresh décor, tasteful wooden doors and a lot of storage and a bunk room with a fantastic bare stone wall allowing an insight into the history of this building, along with a spacious bathroom.

Enjoy the potted plants with a cup of tea outside in the mornings before heading out to explore the local area.

Lyme Regis is a fantastic holiday resort, teeming with amazing activities, for example there are two museums, Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium and Langmoor and Lister Gardens all within the town centre, and an abundance of shops selling local art, craft and home made goodies, as well as many delicious eateries waiting to cater to your culinary needs.

Take a stroll along the wonderful beaches with a view across the ocean, harbours and towering cliffs where you can enjoy a family picnic, a swim or even try out fossil hunting.

Further afield there are many great places to visit including Cannington Viaduct and the Donkey Sanctuary.

Make a family holiday to remember with a stay at Ivy Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
