  • "We stayed for a few days at Seagull Cottage."

    It was a beautiful cottage perfectly situated only a few minutes from the front. The cottage had all the amenities to cook which we did a couple of times. At the end of our stay the sun came out so we were able to spend time in the lovely garden. Great cottage would highly recommend

  • "We stayed at Seagull Cottage last year and enjoyed it."

    It has a great location particularly for a young family - close to the beach, cafes, restaurants and the wide range of shops. But the absence of a washing machine (there was one last year) was not welcome. Had we been informed that it had been removed, we may not have booked the cottage (Lyme has no shortage of suitable places to stay). A family holiday let without washing facilities is an oddity.

    We’re so pleased you enjoyed your stay and we agree the cottage is in a great location. We had guest feedback that they would prefer a dishwasher as there is a laundrette a minutes walk away. We changed the listing to reflect this so we’re really sorry to hear you would have preferred a washing machine. The Owners Property Owner

  • "Really lovely cottage with everything you need."

    After damp walks around Lyme Regis it was great to come back to a fire and cosy house. Would book again.

  • "Need to supply more bin liners."

    two for a weeks stay is not sufficient

    We do hope that you enjoyed your recent holiday at Seagull Cottage. As the cottage is self-catering we only supply a basic starter pack, including toilet rolls, bin bags etc. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "This is our second visit to seagull cottage and we have already booked in our third."

    It's in a brilliant location, walking distance to shops and beach and the addition of the parking is like gold dust. The cottage is a real home from home with everything you could need during your stay. Launderette is a one minute walk across the car park. Would just like to mention that the shower over bath was draining very slowly so might need some attention but otherwise all perfect.

    We're so delighted you enjoyed your stay and thank you for letting us know about the bath, we fixed the drain. Property Owner

  • "Great property."

    Parking only for 1 car not the two described - I think you could, just, get two Fiat 500's in the space with much manoevering. But who arrives in 2 Fiat 500's. Difficult to get in and out with the single car - and I have a small car. Otherwise we much liked Seagull Cottage. Sykes are aweful. It took them the better part of 15 minutes hanging on the phone before they could manage to let me give them £250 for an extra 2 nights. I had given up but in the end I rang again Lyme Bay Holidays and they sorted it out. By contrast with Sykes the folk at Lyme Bay Holidays (Millie) were excellent. We shall never book a holiday with Sykes.

    We are sorry to hear of your experience when trying to extend your booking. The property provides two parking spaces which fit 2 medium sized vehicles, though guests on occasion have parked a larger people carrier. We hope you enjoyed your stay in Lyme Regis. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage with all facilities."

    For owner: Two door keys are required. Not everyone wants to place key in combination box if guests are returning at different times. As mentioned by other visitors would be better with footstool for better relaxation. TV is difficult to navigate - could not find instructions. Would be helpful if both switches on wall for cooker were indicated- One says cooker and if activated the cooker does not work -you need to switch on the other, un-labelled switch too.

    Thank you for pointing out the issue with the switch, we will organise for our Maintenance Team to take a look. We hope you enjoyed your stay. The Lyme Bay Team Thank you for the great suggestion of a footstool we have now add one so you can sit back and relax with your feet up. The Owners Property Owner

  • "Seagull cottage is tucked away just off Church Street."

    Excellent location! Just a small stroll into Lyme Regis with two parking spaces, which was very useful. The cottage was extremely clean and welcoming we felt at home immediately. Two bathrooms were ideal for our party and the small courtyard garden was perfectly safe for both of our dogs too. We have been to Lyme Regis on many occasions and would happily return to Seagull in the future

  • "Really nice property five minutes walk from the beach."

    Great base for either staying in the town or for exploring further afield as you don’t have to go through the town to get to the main road out of Lyme Regis. Parking for two cars a real benefit and a secure back garden really handy if you have dogs or small children. Very well equipped and very comfortable, definitely recommend.

    Very comfortable beds. Only suggestion is a washing machine. We saw one in the photos and would have liked one as we had sailing gear each day

  • "Fabulous accommodation and spotlessly clean."

    Only downside was that the washing machine had been removed and replaced with a dish washer!

    Thank you for such lovely comments about the cottage. The property owner has swapped the washing machine for a dishwasher as she felt this would be preferable. Although we don't include the washing machine in the property description, I see that we still show a photo of the kitchen with the washing machine and will remove this.

  • "Nice comfortable cottage although bedrooms are on the cosy side."

    Well equipped could do with a carpet sweeper to enable a quick whisk round to keep things tidy. Garden sparse but understandable as it gets very hot in the sun. Lyme Regis is lovely with plenty of places to eat out but beware traffic in the town is very busy, pavements are narrow and there are some very steep streets. Parking on site is a great bonus as there is no nearby car parks or on street parking.

  • "Absolutely loved this cottage."

    Very well equiped and very clean and fresh. Fabulous welcome pack with everything we needed on the day of arrival. Brilliant location in Lyme Regis with it's own parking and close to the sea front. The downstairs wet room was so useful when returning from the beach with sandy wet dogs. Will certainly look to book again if I return to Lyme one day.

  • "A great cottage with ideal location so close to town and yet quiet with a West facing sheltered back garden."

    No washing machine or tumble dryer, however the launderette is a few metres away. Why oh Why is Lyme Bay Holidays not offering travel cots and travel high chairs as a rentable additional extra?

    Thank you for your comments. We will pass on your feedback to the owner for consideration. Unfortunately we are no longer able to offer the hire of high chairs and travel cots, but some properties do now offer these as standard. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

    Great location and lots of activities completed, all without moving the car. We had a great time in the rock pools, looking for fossils, having a dip in the sea, and the obligatory pint(s!) in the brewery! Baby Millie even started walking... so a holiday we'll never forget!!

    Lovely strolls along the promenade and Cobb, fossil hunting in Charmouth and a nice poke around the shops. Thoroughly recommend Strawberry Tree for yummy tapas! And this lovely house.

  • "Cottage was comfortable and well equipped."

    Excellent location great to have parking. In terms of improvement, the garden area is not very attractive and would benefit from decent and comfortable garden furniture and possibly a BBQ.

  • "We've had a most enjoyable stay at the cottage."

    We certainly approve of the upgrades to the kitchen, bathroom, and addition of the wet room. We are the original owners of Seagull Cottage- we named it, and in fact still have the model of the seagull that sat proudly in the front window. Sadly, we had to sell it in 2005 but never thought we'd be able to return. So much has passed in 17 years, but we are delighted to be able to return home, albeit for a couple of days. We have already booked for a longer stay next year, we are so grateful to stay again. Thank you for the welcome goodie bag, a nice touch.

This idyllic cottage with its colourful exterior, bright, light and airy interior, private parking for 2 cars which is a rarity in the town, and private patio with furniture welcomes up to six guests in three bedrooms; the perfect setting for friends and families seeking a seascape in Dorset.

After a fun-filled day at the beach, enter your new home-from-home and snuggle up with your loved ones on the plush sofas in the living/dining room, browse the array of films on the Smart TV while the woodburning stove creates a homely glow.

A welcome pack on arrival ensures a great start to your holiday and will include milk, tea and a selection of locally sourced produce and treats.

Gather the family around the dining table to enjoy the meal rustled up in the fully-equipped kitchen; or enjoy some alfresco dining on the private patio in the rear enclosed garden.

When the sky darkens, travel up to the first floor where you can tuck the kids into the fun twin room before choosing from the two remaining doubles; the rooms are serviced by a sleek bathroom and ground-floor wet room.

Rest up, ready for another exciting day on the coast.

Seagull Cottage rests in the centre of town where you can enjoy a fine selection of independent shops and variety of attractions, including the Fossil Museum, Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium, and Jurassic Footgolf.

There are also a number of excellent restaurants and bars in town, including The Pilot Boat and Hix's Fish and Oyster House.
