  • "Fantastic stay at a great little cottage on the heart of the town."

    The property was well provisioned and very comfortable. Will definitely be starting here again

  • "We selected this property because it was central in the town and as we were not planning on exploring the wider area of Dorset or Devon."

    We were not disappointed. The house is very conveniently located for a week's stat in Lyme where we hadn't visited before. It was very comfortable,be specially the beds, and the constant sound of the river burbling its way past the house on its way to the sea was delightful. Occasionally, when the tides were high, the waves reached as fast as the house which just added to the experience. As with any holiday rental , even with the best, there are always some minor niggles. One such in this house is that there isn't a collander for draining pasta and the corkscrew is a bit iffy. We also noticed dust falling from gaps in the ceiling above the cooker hood. An easy fix. Sealant around the bath could do with replacing as well. All in all though we had a very enjoyable stay.

  • "Had a lovely week in Lyme at this cosy, comfortable cottage."

    Facilities were excellent, very clean, super comfy beds and welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, biscuits etc, that were greatly appreciated after a six hour drive! The location is fantastic, cafes, beach and pubs all within a five minute walk, didn’t drive anywhere all week, just relaxed and enjoyed it. Definitely recommend and will return.

  • "Spent 5 lovely nights at Riverdance."

    The cottage is well equipped with plenty of space for 4 people. The sound of the river is very relaxing. Located very close to the sea front and shops. Recommend Woodmead car park.

  • "Nicely refurbished property close to bars, restaurants and coffee shops."

    Plenty of hot water from the shower as well. Could do with some hangars for trousers and more cutlery but these are small details. Internet is slow. Would re-book.

  • "Just got back from a lovely break at the Riverdance Cottage and have to say the owners had though of everything!"

    From the kitchen facilities and pint of milk in the fridge, to the guide books and walks left by the sofas. As a family we couldn't fault it. It was decorated beautifully and I even found some of the furnishings in the local shops, of which there are plenty!. The location is ideal for the beach, cafes and restaurants. I was worried about the parking, but we bought a 3-day permit at the car park. I would definitely recommend Riverdance, and hopefully return for a short-break in the future.

  • "Had a lovely short break at Riverdance, we’ve never stopped anywhere that is better equipped than here."

    The cottage was decorated beautifully with a home from home feel rather than holiday accommodation. The bedrooms were lovely, one of the comfiest beds I’ve slept in. Location was perfect for everything, would have been easier if there had been outside space for the dogs but it really wasn’t a problem and would definitely recommend and stay there again.

  • "Fantastic location, couldn’t be better."

    Lovely cottage and furnished to a high spec. Beds were very comfy. We had a great few days. Recommend people visit the Mill and the brewery as very close by. Lovely cafe next door but one, where we had a lovely breakfast. Thank you, will definitely return for another mini break.

Beautifully presented throughout, this Grade II listed cottage is a great base for couples or a family looking to explore the delights of Dorset and the popular Jurassic Coast.

Enter the property where a lovely sitting area awaits, emitting a quaint cottage feel, where guests can settle down and warm their feet beside the woodburning stove.

Take the stairs down to the lower ground floor and discover a great cottage style kitchen with loads of traditional features, including wooden roof beams, along with plenty of amenities to cater to your culinary needs.

The dining table is a perfect spot to sit and enjoy mealtimes as you look out onto the river passing by.

On the first floor there are two bedrooms, a kingsize and a double, which are comfortably furnished for a restful night’s sleep.

The bathroom, located on the ground floor, has a bath with shower over. Centrally located in the heart of the old town and only a stone's throw from the beach, Riverdance Cottage is perfectly situated for enjoying all that Lyme Regis has to offer.

With an array of independent shops and galleries selling local gifts and produce to pubs and eateries selling local food and beverages, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

A stroll along the seafront takes you to the family friendly beaches and iconic Cobb harbour with its fishing boats and pleasure boat trips.

An area renowned for its fossils.

Why not learn about the area’s history and heritage with a visit to one of the local museums, or head out along the shores and try your hand at finding your own ammonites.

An area popular with walkers, the South West coastal path takes in popular seaside villages of Beer and Branscombe and rewards walkers with far reaching coastal views of Golden Cap and as far as Portland on a clear day.

Other popular days out include Seaton, where you can take a tram rise along the Axe river estuary to Colyton or The Donkey Sanctuary at Sidmouth, home to hundreds of donkeys and open throughout the year.
