  • "Although the cottage itself was lovely ,we found it a bit annoying that the key safe was not attached to the property and that when we had a power cut on our first night the burgular alarm was going off all night and after ringing at 9."

    15 the next day it still took a second phone call at 4.oclock before it was sorted. I know you don't know when power cuts are going to happen but after talking to the guys fixing it SW power it seems this is quite a regular occurance on this road ,so it maybe worth have external monitoring on the alarm so not to disturb customers holidays. Regards Tim

    We are pleased to hear that you found Maries to be a lovely cottage. The alarm is designed to sound when the power is cut and to stop after 15 minutes. Power cuts are not a regular feature in this road. This is the first to be reported in the 14 years we have been managing the property. We are sorry that the power cut affected the beginning of your stay. Property Owner

  • "Thank you. Lovely stay at Maries."

      Great location and lovely cottage Just to mention the kitchen door with the bin on was loose on the hinge. It just needs tightening. Many thanks Nick

    It's great to hear that you had a super holiday at Maries. Thank you for letting us know about the door and we will arrange to fix it. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "This is an amazing property."

    Firstly the views are really special overlooking the bay. The property is spacious and is VERY well equipped. We visited in December and it was warm with a plentiful supply of hot water dispensed from a good shower. The welcome pack contained a generous selection of local fayre. The beds were wonderfully comfortable with an assortment of cupboards for storage. We loved the atmosphere of the cottage and felt sad to leave. Many safety features had been considered enabling my elderly husband to relax including safety handles in the shower, night lights, bannisters and of course the house is on one level. The description on the site is accurate including the parking though tight is definitely doable. I also like the versatility of the property as it offers scope for sharing with another couple whilst having the space for a bit of privacy. There is also a conservatory to enjoy as well. The gardens contain an interesting selection including flowering camellias in December and seating to eat/ drink outside. We would highly recommend this property.

  • "Very lovely property in a great location with nice views of the coastline and sea."

    Everything we needed and more, very well equipped and beautifully presented. Nice and warm despite the cold weather and the snow we had on the Thursday! Particularly enjoyed the gas logs, very cosy! Our 2 small dogs settled in quickly and enjoyed the back garden and shrubbery, while we could relax as it seemed well secured! We’ve already booked for March next year as we enjoyed it so much!

  • "Wonderful place."

    Booked again next year.Widening the entrance has made all the difference to access for even large cars. An Amazon firestick is a useful addition to the TV in the lounge.. Trees slightly obscure the fireworks on Bonfire night. Our Pugs did not escape the confines of the back garden. Shame they allowed next door to build in front of the building line and to the height he has. What were the planning committee thinking of!!

  • "Excellent property in good location and pretty much as advertised."

    Only minor comments would be that property was clean on arrival but worktops a bit sticky/tacky. Dishwasher needed salt. Also bushes on drive need to be trimmed a little. However we were get very happy with the property and would return without hesitation

    We're so pleased to hear that you really enjoyed your stay. Maries offers a great location to both the beaches and the town. The dishwasher tablets provided are all-in-one to prevent having to top up with rinse aid and salt. We look forward to welcoming you for a return visit. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Had a really fabulous week."

    Couldn’t believe how well equipped the property was, even a coffee pod machine. Location was ideal, no passing traffic on a private road! A short downhill walk to the town and beach, but a good climb back up, However there is even a shopping trolley in the cupboard!! The only down was that the fence in the rear garden is not beagle proof but only a minor issue for us. Thank you for a great week.

  • "The property was great, very well located and probably our favourite holiday rental we have been to."

    There were however a couple of areas that, whilst we were aware of, had an impact on our stay. Firstly, the driveway really isn't suitable for modern vehicles. We were aware that it would be tight, but as there were no pictures it's hard to judge from the comment in the details alone. Whilst we were able to get in and out, great care had to be taken. Please add more representative pictures in the property details. The second was the building work going on next door. Again we were aware of this, but it did mean we couldn't really enjoy the outside space. There were people working on the exterior and roof in full view and they had a radio on constantly. We could quite clearly hear their conversations and "banter".

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to be able to offer parking at the property, as parking spaces can be difficult to come by in Lyme. We do describe the parking access to ensure people are aware before booking. The adjacent building works were due to be complete by the end of May and we have reached out to the owner for an update. I have contacted the owner to make them aware of your comments. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Lovely property, the car access is as described very tricky in a large car but it is possible with patience and reversing skills."

    We're glad that you enjoyed your stay at Maries. We are pleased to offer parking onsite, a rare find in Lyme, and as you say with a little manouvering it is possible in a larger vehicle. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

    I have to congratulate the owners, who have put a lot of thought, care and love into this house. As soon as you enter and are greeted with the beautiful gift hamper, you are put in the right frame of mind for a wonderful stay. I also need to praise the housekeeper....it was spotlessly clean throughout...thank you. The location is wonderful with footpaths just seconds from the end of the drive. If you cannot walk to the main streets and promenade, there are car parks close by. Thank you, I cannot fault the property in any way.

  • "We've returned to Maries several times as it just suits us perfectly."

    Its clean and comfortable with wonderful views and the position is perfect adjacent to the cliff walks and within easy distance to town and seafront. We also enjoy its peaceful location. I first stayed in Maries in approx 1966/7 when I was a child with my family, my mother knew the owner at that time. I was pleased to read the history in the information file. Although the alarm is not activated it sounded on the Monday morning. On speaking to the maintenance people and entering the code it emerged that the sounder box could have a fault and the maintenance people duly informed the alarm provider. . We were slightly concerned that the alarm would go off again during our duration but fortunately not. Do hope this problem has been rectified.

The property

Enjoying a wonderful, elevated position overlooking the Jurassic Coastline, is this stunning, thatched cottage, Maries.

The ideal holiday home for a family or couples travelling together, Maries boasts breath-taking views and offers everything needed for an enjoyable holiday.

The open-plan living space welcomes guests in and offers a truly welcoming ambience with an extensive seating area, feature wood beams, a traditional fireplace and original picture windows providing captivating coastal views.

The dining area is elegant and stylish and there is also a less formal dining space in the kitchen which is fully fitted with everything needed to create delicious food for the whole family.

A great alternative socialising space is the spacious sunroom with seating which not only gives guests somewhere quieter to chill out away from the chaos of the main house but also boasts enchanting views over to the sea and beyond.

When bedtime calls make your way to either of the bedrooms; a double and a king-size which is particularly impressive with French doors opening onto a magnificent terrace which offers especially glorious views.

You can imagine relaxing on the balcony in the evening watching the sun going down and then waking up in the morning and maybe having breakfast on the balcony, soaking up the Dorset sun and planning your day’s activities.

The outside space is a delight here and many happy hours will be spent in the gardens here enjoying time alfresco with the children.

Gardens feature a patio and lawn to the south side with coastline views and seating.

Lyme Regis is just a short walk away with shops, boutiques, bars and restaurants as well as a harbour, causeway and beach as well as a fascinating museum and aquarium.
