  • "Lovely place and enjoyed the stay"

  • "A wonderful long weekend staying at The Arched House with friends."

    Fabulous location, only a few minutes from the sea. Next door to the Town Mill Bakery for morning pastries or for an eat-in brunch. The Arched House is beautiful. The kitchen is well equipped and the beds were comfortable. Lots of bathrooms too. The large kitchen diner is a wonderful space and the river runs underneath the window. We had requested all the beds were made up as singles and on arrival this had not been done, however a quick telephone call and someone was there in minutes to sort it out. There is no parking at the house but you are given a permit for a car park a few minutes walk away. We were able to pull up outside the house and quickly unload although you are blocking the road when you do this, however people didn't seem to mind. You won't need the car again as everything is on your doorstep. We would highly recommend a stay in this beautiful house.

  • "The Arched House is simply the best house we have stayed in."

    Excellent. The owner was engaging too.

  • "The property was excellent, as usual."

    However since the takeover of Lyme Bay Holidays by Sykes, the price charged has risen dramatically. This I'm sure is due to the Sykes taking the increase in price as increase in profit. I notice that there were a number of properties in Lyme Regis vacant for the half term holiday, maybe this was due to the increase in prices? Also the Arched house was not fully booked throughout August and price reductions were being offered. There needs to be a rethink Sykes, of your strategies, especially in the present financial climate. It shouldn’t be cheaper to go abroad than holiday here in UK. I look forward to a return to more reasonable prices next year as we would love to return.

    We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at The Arched House. Property prices are constantly under review and can increase/decrease according to demand. We would advise keeping an eye on our website for special offers/discounts. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Beautiful house, very central and with fabulous rooms."

    There weren't any dishwasher tabs or washing up liquid when we arrived but owners were happy to provide them when asked. Loved the ability to request single beds be made up rather than doubles. Lots of bathrooms & loos...very useful for a big group. Parking permit was great as were the multiple sets of keys. Overall a wonderful house.

    Everything we needed - 3 generations. Particularly grateful for shrimp nets, buckets & spades and logs for a fire! Location spot on as ever.

If you want a drive that is rewarded with plenty of captivating scenery along the way then visit attractions such as Pecorama, Tunnel Tree Tops, Axe Valley Wildlife Park, Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens and Seaton Tramway.

The whole of the Jurassic Coastline is breath-taking so why not take a drive and discover some of the fantastic towns along the way such as Exmouth, Beer, Charmouth, Bridport and Weymouth?
