  • "Lovely property and location."

    We had issue with light fitting falling down which was rectified very quickly by the owner which was very efficient. The toilet seat fixing was broken and quite dangerous to use in the main bathroom and the bath plug didn’t hold water. Also stair gate couldn’t be fitted anywhere to secure the stairs. All this being said the property is lovely and cosy and the hot tub is so relaxing and private. We did have a fantastic stay and these are only minor niggles but wanted to mention them as owner may not be aware.

    Thank you for your feed back. So pleased you enjoyed your time at the cottage. Thank you for being attention to the toilet seat, this has since been replaced. Also the cottage has been checked for any othe minor problems. Property Owner

  • "The cottage itself is lovely, very clean, towels provided and tea and coffee, and the hot tub was really good to go in every evening after a day out."

    The location was great and the walk from the cottage into Lyme Regis was really nice. The biggest downside for us was the significant lack of parking I can't see that this was advised of in the property listing. I've looked through everything. From an accessibility point of view as I'm profoundly deaf in my left ear and I don't have much hearing left in my right, this was a massive issue to the point that I feel we should make a complaint please. The road outside next to the cottage is extremely dangerous and we had no choice but to park over the road on the hill. People need to made aware of this! It's standard stuff. It's not a cheap holiday and this is something you should either have as standard or at least be made aware of before you go. It's really disappointing. We have no issue with the quality of the cottage etc, or the booking etc through Sykes is just the parking and I in particular don't want another family to go through the stress like we did due to accessibility issues. Thank you.

    Thank you for your comments on pound cottage. I am sorry about the parking, many cottages in the Lyme Regis area do not have provision for a parking space. The cottage is situated next to the local park, you could walk through and access your car. There are unrestricted parking spaces located on the same side of the road as the cottage on Lyme road. Please except my apologies for your distress. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is beautiful and in a gorgeous location."

    The attention to detail in the cottage is amazing, it is very well presented and has a lovely feel about it. The hot tub is a big bonus if you get the weather for it. It is a bit overlooked but I can see that in time the shrubbery should provide some screening, however a parasol would help in the meantime, and to also cast some shade on very sunny days - the heat of the hot tub and the sun is intense. There were four slight issues - in the single bedroom my son locked the door with the key from the inside but then could not get it unlocked, it had jammed. By throwing the key out of the window and then using a bit of force, it eventually unlocked but I would suggest removing the keys altogether, they look pretty but I would say that they are not really needed. The second is the bed in the main bedroom, it’s rather creaky. The third being that my daughter found a used sock in one of the her bedroom drawers (which we left there I’m afraid..she didn’t want to touch it and then I forgot to remove later on). Lastly, it was having no access to the heating. I appreciate we stayed during July but a couple of the evenings went very cold and it was then that we found the heating system was locked. We would have maybe lit the wood burner but no wood was provided. We understood that usually neither of the these would normally be needed in the summertime, however having one as an option would have been good. I do not want any of these points to detract from the cottage itself, or indeed our stay. We loved staying there and would definitely recommend to anyone else visiting the area.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Pound Cottage."

    It had everything we needed. It was very clean and comfortable. The hot tub was lovely. Parking is not directly on the Road opposite the cottage. Parking is down the Road and you have to walk on a busy Road with no pavement. The walk to Lyme Regis is about 25 minutes and is a lovely walk.

  • "We had a really great stay at Pound Cottage and would definitely return."

    We had some difficultly finding the property initially, perhaps updating the direction to say on the corner of Lyme Rd and Croggs lane may be useful for other visitors. Our only minor criticism of the cottage was the very low hanging light-fittings upstairs that we bumped our heads on and we are only average height! Overall we had a lovely stay, thank you!

  • "Very lovely cottage, clean and comfortable and a nice touch with the essentials and treats upon arrival."

    My son wanted to stay forever and he loves his own surroundings so this is a very positive indication!

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.
