  • "This is a lovely property in a superb setting, well-equipped and with many thoughtful touches that were much appreciated."

    The only, very minor, niggle is the lack of lighting over the bathroom mirror. Beautiful garden and views. We look forward to returning next year. Many thanks to Ian, the owner.

  • "Charlesmead is an outstanding wooden bungalow that enabled us to spend a really relaxing holiday here."

    It is superbly furnished & equipped; furthermore, it is enclosed by a lovely garden with an exquisite collection of shrubs & trees all arranged with an artist's eye. The view from the wooden balcony to the hills in the north-east is very pleasant & restful. Ian, the owner, was very welcoming & helpful in accommodating our needs. We definitely want to stay here again in the future.

  • "The property needs some updating and maintenance, the guttering outlet was blocked with a plant that we had to pull out to let the water run away, the drainage to the rear had the grating removed and lent against the wall which is a trip hazard, also no welcome pack which is unusual for lyme Bay holidays we think that charlesmead was over priced for the time of rental."

  • "Very comfortable, well-equipped accommodation with great views, and we appreciated the patio being in sunshine both morning and early evening!"

    The shop at the local garage is very useful and the bus service along the coast is excellent. The riverside walk into Lyme is very attractive, but walking back after dinner you definitely need a torch. We had a great holiday and would definitely stay at Charlesmead again.

About the location


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.
