  • "Property was great."

    We loved it. The only slight problem was with the lock on the door. The key would not turn when the door was shut and the handle pushed up ( as it needs to be to lock the door). I persevered, and worked out how to make it lock. The door needs to be pushed or pulled, once it is shut, ( depending on if you are inside or outside) until you here a slight “click” from the door. Then the key can be turned fully and the door is locked. A bit of a faff. But worth noting for other people who use the property. Or get the lock looked at as someone might break the key in the lock, or not lock it!

    We have attended to the front door lock and it is now much easier to use. Thank you for your kind comments. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

    It is in a lovely situation, with a walk into Lyme. The following would be minor improvements:- A freezer (most important!) Comfortable garden furniture Bathmat Recycling box (missing) 2 lightbulbs need replacing in kitchen

    Thank you for your feedback. We will attend to the bulbs that need replacing, provide a bath mat and look for the glass recycling box. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Lovely bungalow with everything you could possibly need."

    Good quality kitchen equipment and plenty of crockery and dishes etc. A few things that we think need addressing; The kitchen door is not easy to lock from the inside, door needs to be pushed hard to turn the key. Patio door also stiff to lock. Hardly any pegs for clothes dryer. Bathroom door sticks. Shower head doesn't sit in the slot properly. Other than the food waste bin, there were no colour coded bins for general or recycling rubbish, as suggested in instructions. All bins outside the shed have broken lids and were full of rainwater. Hall curtains coming off hooks. 2 end bedrooms curtains are so light that they don't shut out any light. The toilet could do with a towel holder on the wall, as the freestanding one takes up a lot of room in what's a small space. The above are very small things, however, would have given 10/10. Please dont think that we're being picky as we loved it and would have booked straight away for next year, however, see that the cost has gone up over 30%, so unfortunately that's too expensive for us.

    We're pleased that you had an enjoyable holiday and thank you for your feedback which we will look into on behalf of the owners. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "The bungalow is very comfortable, clean and well equipped."

    It is in a lovely location with a large beautiful garden. The only improvement would be a fridge freezer rather than a fridge with a small freezer compartment but this is made clear in the property description.

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.
