  • "We three friends really enjoyed the cottage and Charmouth itself."

    The welcome pack was gratefully received, however we found the kitchen really lacking in basics like sugar, vinegar, tomato sauce (for the fish and chips from next door) and other items that we didn't want to buy but would have appreciated. I went on to stay in an Airbnb cottage in Lulworth and really appreciated all the basics were included very generously. Otherwise a very enjoyable stay.

    Thank you for your 100% score and we are glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the welcome pack which is presented for a self-catering property. Property Owner

  • "Lovely house perfect for two couples and two children and a dog."

    So close to the beach and lovely walks. The main bedroom door is faulty - unable to get out a couple of times. From the scratches round the handle looks like its not the first time! Also 'please do not park here in use constantly' signs may put some off. In front of the garages seems to be a popular place to park for the chippy!

    Thank you for your feedback. The issue with the latch has now been fixed. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Enjoyable stay in a nice cottage."

    Highly recommended village to stay in with 2 nice pubs , good fish and chip shop and short walk to superb beach . Great hills for the runners in our group. The main issues we had with the cottage was the fact it advertised for up to 3 dogs and we assumed the courtyard garden would therefore be a good size . It wasn’t !! Just about enough room for 4 chairs and a table and definitely no room for the dogs as well . The bushes hanging over were overgrown and sitting on the table . I had to cut them back . Surprising given a previous guest had reported it and nothing done to rectify. Additionally we reported a problem with dishwasher on day 2 but had no reply . No big deal but I would be disappointed if I was the owner. Garage really not big enough for a family car . Seems a waste of space - maybe could be converted to a games room ? However we had no problem parking our car outside. Electric needs an overhaul upstairs as the owner’s hairdryer kept tripping the electrics . In summary though , nice , well maintained (inside) property in superb location.

    Thanks for your constructive feedback. We employ someone to maintain the patio area. The hedge you mention is from our neighbouring property but will ensure it is in the remit of our team to cut it back. The dishwasher (new last year) developed a fault on the door during your stay and, according to LBH maintenance, it was that which tripped the electric. It was rectified by the installer under warranty the day after you left. In addition to describing the patio as a small patio garden there are also pictures which you may not have seen? We are glad you otherwise had an enjoyable stay and loved the local area. Property Owner

  • "Stayed many times at Vine over many years and love the house."

    I gave a 4 stars for cleanliness because it wasn’t as clean as it could have been . There was dog hair under lounge furniture which wasn’t our dogs . The floors downstairs were not as clean as they could have been. I have to say the Lyme bay maintenance team were quick and efficient to respond(Issue with windows)

    Thank you for your feedback, we will make sure Lyme Bay's housekeeping team are aware of your comment. Glad to know that LBH Maintenance were quick to re-supply the window lock key which had been removed by someone. We will provide additional ones when we next visit. Thank you for re-booking already for next year! G&J (Owners) Property Owner

  • "It was inconvenient to pick up the keys from your offices in Lyme Regis especially as there was little available parking."

    Could you not have a key box at the property to save having to drive into Lyme Regis. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay at Vine Cottage in Charmouth.

    Thanks for your feedback. So pleased you enjoyed your stay and we have now added a key box at the property. Property Owner

  • "We had never visited Charmouth before and this property was ideal for a first time visit."

    Centrally located, ten minutes walk from the sea, with all the local facilities almost on the doorstep and with inland walks close by this property filled all our needs. The property is spacious and comfortable and felt like a real home from home. Having two bathrooms and three toilets was a real bonus. This is somewhere that we would hope to come back to on future visits to the area.

    Excellent property, well equipped, great with new kitchen, bathroom and windows. Wonderful to be so close to the beach and great countryside walks for our dog. Had an issue with the tv not getting the basic channels but Lyme Bay Holidays sent someone round very quickly to sort it.
