  • "We had a lovely stay at the Annexe at Valley View."

    We couldn't fault it in any way. It was so clean and comfortable and in a perfect location. Seeing the calves and cows on the dairy farm just opposite was lovely too. Thank you to Jill for all the goodies that were left for us on arrival and the swan towels, they were masterpieces in themselves! We were sorry we didn't get to meet you Jill. We hope to return at some point in the future. Best wishes. Robert and Jacky

  • "The annex at Valley View is one of the most beautiful properties we have stayed in."

    A lovely location for the coast and surrounding countryside. On arrival we found a lovely welcome in the form of some wine, eggs, biscuits and marmalade. The whole of the property is well designed and has everything you would ever need and more. Little touches everywhere show how the owner goes above and beyond to make your stay special. We only wish that we had tried some of the course offered on site and next time we definitely will.

  • "A beautifully appointed property and spacious in all departments."

    It was nice to be adjacent to a Dairy Farm with all the noises one would expect. The gardens for the property were delightful and it was a joy to be able to have meals outside during the holiday. The property's own nature reserve kitted out with features such as a tree house was a delight to explore. From the highest point a view to the sea with Uplyme and Lyme Regis in the foreground. Several walks started from the property which was lovely as the car could be left behind.

    The garden is lovely with clock golf on the lawn. Very well equipped and a little quirky.

  • "We have just returned from a wonderful weekend at valley view farm."

    The weather wasn't brilliant so we were reliant on the comfort and facilities available at the accommodation. We were really pleased with all the amenities and had a lovely relaxing weekend. We still managed to get out and do the fossil hunting and walking in the bad weather. Jill is the perfect host.

  • "The place was exactly as described."

    It was very clean and they were following Covid guidelines which was very reassuring. During our stay we bumped into the owner of the property and she was very friendly and helpful. We also had email contact from her during our stay to check we had everything we needed. Would definitely consider staying here again. Location was perfect - close to Lyme Regis and good walks in the area.

  • "Valley View Annexe is a lovely secluded hideaway in Uplyme."

    The annexe had everything you needed and the cleanliness was excellent which is very reassuring in the current climate. The views over the valley are amazing and our only neighbours were the cows in the adjoining farm. Walking into Lyme Regis along the river was peaceful and also a good workout getting back to Valley View. We would recommend without any hesitation and hopefully will have the opportunity to return there ourselves.

Nature Reserve and Woodland In early July 2018 the owner of the Valley View Farm has been trying to attract a wider range of fauna and flora with water, additional nest boxes and trying to enhance the natural habitat for the benefit of all, including the guests.

Even though the property has been home to animals and plants for many years, the owner is making this a paradise for wildlife even on a higher level.

She is planning to install cameras so that the guests could experience wildlife from the comfort of the armchair, some kind of ‘Spring Watch’.

Jill, the owner, hopes that the guests will enjoy using the area and even try and make a camp or something similar.

With many branches and plenty of dead vegetation that might help with building works, that’s an ideal place to enhance your bush craft skills.

The owner has checklists and clipboards if you wish to take this seriously and see what you can spot!

It may encourage future guests to take upon a challenge and tick off sightings of their own. Courses Would you like learn to build a Devon Stone Wall or make your own bird boxes?

About the location

UPLYME

Lyme Regis 1 mile

The beautiful countryside surrounding the village of Uplyme, on the borders of Devon and Dorset, is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, criss-crossed by bridleways and footpaths including the East Devon Way, and providing perfect country walks and superb views. The area was chosen by TV chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall for his River Cottage HQ at Park Farm, where you can treat yourself to a great meal. Just a short drive takes you to the stunning Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis. This delightful historic seaside town boasts a maze of narrow streets, with an interesting array of shops and cafes, whilst the sandy beach lends itself to great bathing and watersports, and the bustling little harbour offers regular fishing trips, or try your hand at fossil hunting. Within an easy drive is the quaint town of Axminster, or how about a ride on the Seaton Tramway? A glorious location for a varied and interesting holiday.
