  • "The property was not cleaned properly, sand in the bed, toilet was dirty, dog hair everywhere; garden not maintained, all of the appliances were dated and again not cleaned to an acceptable standard."

    The shower has been brought to your attention on previous reviews; water goes everywhere and for minimal cost could be rectified. We were lucky that we could afford to eat out but for families on a budget deserve better facilities for the money. The positives of course are the views and location.

  • "Hi I would not usually say anything but as you asked, I thought the location was absolutely spot on with the beach, pubs and restaurants very close by however the shack/shed was very small and cheaply furnished."

    the bed was small and uncomfortable, the shower just put water everywhere and was not contained within the shower area which will cause damp and rot problems in the near future, the kitchen very dated with very cheap appliances. Spending almost £600.00 for 3 nights represented very poor value for money. I cannot imagine what it would be like to stay there with four people as my wife and I plus our dog found it very restrictive. there is mould behind the sofa and low level around the skirting board is pretty grubby. It is an old place with single block walls which will get damp which I can live with but not for £200.00 a night we could have stayed in a really nice hotel for that. In the customer book there was a comment saying that it was their 5th and final stay at 1 Wellhayes as it has got too expensive for what it is. That just about sums it up

  • "Positives - amazing location and stunning views."

    - lovely balcony. -fully enclosed garden for the dog. Negatives -we spent 45 mins looking for the car parking space at 9pm at night - really terrible directions on the welcome email. Asked many local who also didn't know where undercliff carpark was...should be made clear it is not the 2 public car parks. we called the Sykes cottages emergency voicemail line and no one returned our call despite getting a text from them. - the house is not signposted from the road and when I did finally find it using the what 3 words it was pitch black and overgrown and needed a torch to get into the keysafe. Really not a stress free way to start the holiday. - the property felt quite dirty and run down, with cobwebs/spiders and dust covering the bed frame, the glasses needed re-washing before use. - was unable to shut the washing machine door..therefore unable to wash anything. - I agree that this is not the owners fault but other holiday makers should know that the park situated next to the property is used by the locals to smoke weed on a summer's night, so on 2 occasions we were woken by the youths (who sit right below the balcony) and the bedroom was filled with fumes, so we had to shut the windows.

  • "Ideal location let down by the access of steep uneven steps, property is ideal for two people, second bedroom only suitable for small children."

    The property and garden ready for some T L C, and tv plus instructions need updating.

    We have reviewed our description and have noted the steep access steps to the chalet. We hope you had a lovely holiday. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Ideally placed for beach & sea view with local eateries nearby."

    Not for anyone who has mobility issues & a bit of a walk from car park to the chalet. The 2nd (v small) bedroom is certainly geared towards smaller children sleeping in there. Nice gentle flat walk into Lyme Regis high street along Marine Parade & beach front. Some noise during day due to close proximity of beach & a pub that has live music on some evenings but that didn’t worry us. Liked the idea of being able to sit out undercover on the decking when raining. Only niggle is the sofa - would recommend investing in a new one & some repainting here & there otherwise all ok.

  • "I've been staying in Lyme Regis at least 3 times a year for the past 16 years, as my Father lives there."

    This has been my favourite location of all the places we've stayed in, the views from the balcony simply couldn't be beat. My only criticism is the check in and check out times. 16:00 is about 2 hours too late and 10:00 is too early.

    How lovely to hear that it is your favourite location that you've stayed in. As the chalet is so close to the beach it affords some amazing views. We're sorry that we can't offer later check out/earlier check in times during the busy season but if you do stay with us during the quieter months we are always happy to try to accommodate such requests.

  • "Lovely location with amazing view."

    A bit basic, but comfortable. Need to be fairly fit to tackle the many steps up to the property. We had no option about staying over the Bank Holiday Weekend, so VERY expensive and as expected due to its location, a lot of noise during day and evening, so if you want a more quiet and relaxing break, this one is probably not for you!

    The chalet affords some amazing views and due to such a close proximity to the seafront it can be noisy, especially over busy Bank Holiday weekends. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful location and very clean."

    We have stayed there many times but sadly it has been priced out of our reach so this is our last stay. We thought that this year's price was astronomic but love it so much there that we looked at next year to book but found that the price will go up a further whopping 20%. The place could do with some TLC. The mattress needs replacing. The sofa is tatty and uncomfortable. The crockery and cutlery and glassware is mismatched. I don't think that anything has been improved since our very first visit some five years ago.

  • "We love Wellhayes."

    Mostly due to location and the views. It is comfy and well equipped. Short walk into town along promenade. Parking space 2 mins away a bonus. Sadly loosing the view to the right of the harbour and boats due to shrub branches needing lopped. Can’t beat the view of the bay though. Fabulous. Close to lots of pubs and eateries. We will definitely return.

  • "We have stayed here 5 times and quite frankly it is all about location and we absolutely love it :) Not related specifically to this property however I do think there could be improvements to the means of advising customers when rentals are ready at the beginning of the stay."

    I understand why you say 4pm and that you do not want customers turning up early or hassling you but a text system to say your accommodation is now ready must be fairly simple to employ. Just a thought :)

  • "Lovely little house."

    Clean and tidy. Great views of the cob and beach. As advertised in the listing, it can be a bit noisy at night. Loading and uploading car is a bit tricky due to narrow road and steep steps to property but, overall, I would recommend staying here.

  • "Please share with rentals when the dredging will take place as this totally ruined our 4th and last stay at Wellhaynes."

    I am so disappointed with the lack off support from lyme bag holidays or notification of the works and either the chance to change weeks,cancel, or reduced price due to the noise and inconvenience. We were planning in renting bthe adjoining property next year as we are new grandparents for a lovely family holiday but will go elsewhere from now on

The property

With the most stunning sea views, easy access to a beach right on your doorstep, this chalet bungalow is simply the perfect family holiday for those who love to feel the sea breeze in their hair and explore quaint harbour towns.

Located in a fantastic location to enjoy the town centre and coast of Lyme Regis. Upon arrival you will be simply delighted by the amazing position of this semi-detached chalet bungalow, overlooking the sandy beach at Marine Parade, right on the seafront of the town, with uninterrupted views of the ocean and a beach at your fingertips, you will be eager to make yourself at home and begin exploring the local area.

A welcoming open-plan living area encourages you to recline in the sitting area with a view overlooking the bay, as well as wooden wall panels in keeping with the theme of the properties wonderful exterior, and continuing a splash of blue through the living area, where a small but amply fitted kitchen will make the perfect place for the designated chef to explore new recipes with local produce, before serving them at the bar provided, a wonderful sitting area with bar stools and a sea blue wood echoed throughout the kitchen.

When sleep calls, a spacious double room, decorated again in themes of seaside blue, offers the perfect spot to get cosy, whilst a bunk room is the perfect space for children, and there is a shower-room ready to soak the sand from your hair after a long day at the beach.

Probably the most delightful part of this property is the amazing balcony, accessible through the French windows of the sitting area and providing a spot to enjoy the views all year round, with shelter for rainy days allowing you to still enjoy the moody ocean scenery, and on warmer days, this is the perfect place to end your day with a glass of your favourite beverage in hand.

With a beach so close to the property, you will be able to picnic on the sand and enjoy a read whilst the children build sandcastles, or why not take to the waves in a kayak?

Despite the proximity to a beach, it will be essential that you visit the Jurassic coast, most notably Lyme Regis Fossil Bay, where you can search amongst the rocks for fossils just waiting to be discovered.

Enjoy a family day out at the Dinosaurland Fossil Museum or Lyme Regis Aquarium, or venture further afield to visit one of the many historical sites within the area, including Axminster Heritage Centre, Blackbury Camp, and Maiden Castle.
