  • "Fabulous cottage with ample parking in a great situation near Lyme Regis."

    Spacious modern rooms, easily controllable heating and a light, airy feel made for a very relaxing holiday. Large flat screen TV with a DVD player and a selection of DVDs to view were an unexpected bonus. The modern kitchen had all mod cons should you wish to cook. Can't think of anything to fault at all, would highly recommend.

  • "This property really is a hidden gem."

    It was comfortable, homely, quiet, well-equipped, clean and all in all a great place to stay. The private beach walk was really special and the estate was lovely to wander around. The location was great for exploring the local area. Definitely recommended and we willl be coming back.

  • "No coffee machine."

    Property could have done with a better clean - there were cobwebs everywhere! There appears to be managing agent for this property -(aside from Skye Cottages). They don’t answer the phone and there is no other way of contacting them. This is a problem when you need to contact them!

    Thank you for your feedback. The property details have now been updated to remove the reference to the coffee machine - there is a cafetière and bean grinder but no coffee machine. Apologies if this was misleading. The cobwebs are also being sorted with a property ‘deep clean’. Again, apologies that this was an issue for you. Property Owner

  • "Wonderful stay at The Gardens!"

    Beautiful property on a beautiful estate. Enjoyed the walk down to the secluded beach and trips to various local beaches and towns. House very well equipped and spacious. Highly recommended!

  • "The property was lovely."

    Very clean and in a quiet setting. It was a bonus to have an electric charging point. There is a lot of space One addition which would be helpful is a sun parasol for the garden.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We will ask the owner about providing a parasol. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very clean and warm."

    It had everything we needed. We spent a lot of our time in the cottage and prepared meals as we had a two year old with us and found it very comfortable. The minorest of things - the kitchen and dining area would benefit from some form of window dressing as at night the expanse of glass feels a little exposed especially as it’s a nice room to sit in after a meal.

  • "This is a beautiful property in stunning surroundings."

    It was perfect for our weekend away as a family group of 6 adults. The walk down to the private beach is steep but well worth the effort and, when we did it, there was no one else there. Lyme Regis, with its wonderful shops, cafes and ambience, is a 10 minute drive away and parking was easy. We ate at a Restaurant called Lilac and would highly recommended it.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay and very much hope to see you again. Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at 12 The Gardens,on the Rousdon Estate nr Lyme Regis - everything is catered for, very clean,modern and warm."

    Our weather whilst staying there was not great but we made the most of it and braved the walk to the beach ! Would thoroughly recommend this accommodation.

    So glad you had a lovely time and enjoyed the property. Hope to welcome you back another time. Property Owner

  • "The location of this house is amazing."

    We were stunned by the estate and how old the main house was and how beautiful the surroundings were. We felt we had struck gold! The house was great as well - nothing to report that worried us. I think we found the private beach but no clear route down to it. We went on a very rainy and windy day though so not much time to look around.

    Wonderful to hear you enjoyed 12 The Gardens despite the classic British weather! Property Owner

  • "The cottage was in a great location with easy access to Lyme Regis and a fabulous but challenging coastal walk to Axmouth."

    The appliances in the kitchen were excellent but could have done with a few more mugs so that we could have got better use of the dishwasher! The EV charger was a real bonus. Better instructions on the refuse collections were needed. In the house it said all waste was sorted at the depot and could all go in together which we were not happy about and yet there were re-cycling bags outside with no indication as to what went in where. Instructions to put the bin out for collection on Wednesday were followed but no waste was collected. Over all, the cottage was clean, warm and very comfortable.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for the feedback. We will sort out the mugs in the kitchen and the refuse collection issue has been raised with Suez - they had not replaced the old bins/recycling bags with their bin and also did not collect as they should have done on the Wednesday. Your feedback has been helpful for us to improve the stay for others - thanks again ! Property Owner
