  • "There is nothing not to like with this property!"

    Great location, ample parking, clean and comfortable, well equipped, the list goes on! Really lovely short break in a great small town, would thoroughly recommend.

  • "We love staying at Westhaven - think this is our 5th time."

    The open plan living/dining/kitchen area is a great convivial space. Stunning view from the front of the house and large terrace. We always feel fitter upon returning as we walk down for our morning swim and then get the opportunity to get our “Lyme Bay” legs in on the walk back up.

  • "Beautiful house and garden."

    View of the sea and harbour are wonderful. TV set up is decent for a holiday cottage. Fridge must be in the verge as makes a constant loud hum. Not a big deal for us but needs sorting. Downstairs mattress is absurdly soft and gave me back and hip pain within one night. It is obviously notably soft as another reviewer mentioned it. Property needs a tumble drier and/or a proper rotary washing line at the back. It was infuriating to have a washing machine but one tiny drying rack. Impossible to do any washing, which is a major advantage of self catering versus a hotel. Have not been to another self catering where this was the case. An easy fix, but I see has not been fixed as this was also mentioned in another review. Honestly this made me really cross

  • "A lovely place to stay, large, well equipped and close to shops, beach and amenities."

    Plenty of room to relax, sit out or eat together. Not straightforward to access (via Holmbush Car Park and not Cobb Road or the post code which takes you up a closed private road!) but great views from the front and very quiet at night.

    I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We will review the travel instructions to ensure that they are clear. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "We all enjoyed our three generations family holiday in this spacious house with magnificent views over Lyme Bay."

    The property was clean and welcoming with a well equipped kitchen which is such a bonus when self catering. It was the perfect place to relax and take in the blue skies and amazing sunsets. It’s certainly a holiday home we could imagine returning to but have some reservations about the parking area which had a very uneven surface with a number of drops and protruding rocks making it hazardous for tyres and suspension when parking more than one car. The owners might like to know that the loose patio slab at the top of the approach steps although reported to Sykes 9 a.m. on the Monday morning was not repaired during our stay. Westhaven is no doubt in one of the best locations in Lyme Regis.

  • "The location is the property’s best asset."

    Beautiful views from all windows. Plus parking for 3 cars. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at New Year as the town had a good ‘buzz.’ One or two suggestions - for us the mattress in the en-suite bedroom was too soft. We felt a couple of side tables in the lounge would be useful and the large settee isn’t ideal. Noise from the nearby building project wasn’t intrusive but then we went out exploring the surrounding stunning scenery.

  • "We enjoyed our stay and have stayed here before."

    The outside of the property needs some attention. There is a washing machine but only one small clothes airier so very little space to dry the washing. A washing line should be supplied. The lampshade in the twin room is too low and needs changing. We would happily stay here again but cannot believe the £600 price increase for next year. We understand that prices are going up but cannot see how such a large increase can be justified. We have to travel in school holidays and will need to look at alternatives. This is a great shame as we have used Lyme Bay holidays for many years and have stayed at Westhaven for 3 out of the last 4 years. We would have happily booked again had it not been for the excessive price increase.

  • "Second time we’ve stayed at Westhaven and we found there was more crockery etc which was much better for 6 people."

    A spacious comfortable house with good parking.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our 5-day stay in Westhaven and so did our son's family with 2 young children."

    The house itself was immaculate and the view over the pine trees and the bay from the bedrooms and the upstairs landing was fantastic. The kitchen was particularly well provided for (welcome pack plus cleaning materials for sink and dishwasher). We all appreciated being within walking distance of the beaches, the harbour and the shops. We thoroughly enjoyed a fossil-hunting visit with the children to the nearby beach of Charmouth.
