  • "This is our 2nd holiday at Joiners and we enjoyed it as much as the first."

    We love Rousden, such a beautiful quiet place to escape to for a week and ideal for the dog. The welcome pack was very much appreciated, very generous and a nice thing to arrive to after a long journey. Also the Sky tv was appreciated. Nice to have a choice of so many channels unlike a lot of holiday lets. Thank you

    We are so pleased that you chose Joiners to return to for your holiday, and a good time was had by all. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cottage in a stunning location."

    We stayed with our 20 month old son and brought our own travel cot. He really enjoyed roaming the vast grounds of Rousdon with us - seeing the cows, horses and goats were an added bonus ! Whilst I would say the cottage is not the best layout for young children (curved staircase etc) with a bit of care and attention to how the little one is getting around it is perfectly fine. Beds were comfy, and the cottage had great facilities all around. Would totally recommend if you are looking for a place to stay in that area.

  • "Beautiful building in beautiful surroundings."

    Lots and lots of character. The walks around the estate are beautiful with some glorious views, and it’s very close location to Lyme Regis was a definite plus. We tried to walk down to the beach but found that the steps were very steep and not suitable for our large dog. The interior and furnishings were all getting a bit tired, and although it was clean, I did feel it could have been cleaner. We didn’t use the steam room as it could have done with a good bleaching and the grouting between the tiles closer to the ground in the downstairs loo had black mould on them. The bed, although absolutely huge, was very uncomfortable, and the beams in the lounge were dusty and cobwebby (resulting in me having a spider hit me in the face from the ceiling while relaxing one evening, and therefore keeping an eye on the ceiling for the rest of my stay!) I appreciate the ceilings are very high! The hallway has the remains of a small fireplace which has wooden wine boxes stacked in it. The top of these boxes were covered in bird droppings, easily accessible to small children or animals which I didn’t think was very hygienic. A chimney balloon would quickly rectify this. We were contacted by Lyme Bay Holidays during the first week to see if we wanted a change of linens at the first weekend as we were staying for two. I was happy to change the bedding so it was agreed we would leave the used bedding etc to be picked up and the fresh linen left on the Saturday. This wasn’t done which resulted in us having to take back all of the now damp bedding which had been screwed up in a bag with the damp towels, dry them on radiators and put them back on the bed! On contacting Lyme bay Holidays on the Monday they delivered more, but all the wrong size! They did deliver some more the following day but by then just couldn’t be bothered to rechange them! Finally, on a very minor note, in many years of self catering cottage hire, this was the first one ever that had no condiments at all, and not even a salt and pepper shaker that I could find!

The property

Lyme Regis 3.6 miles.

Occupying an enviable location on the historic Rousdon Estate, is this charming, converted cottage, Joiners.

The perfect setting for a family holiday the cottage offers guests the best of both worlds; traditional features married seamlessly with all the mod cons any discerning visitor would expect.

The light and airy open-plan living space has feature flooring, exposed brickwork, large picture windows, a woodburning stove and an extensive seating area, making it a wonderful spot for gathering together and catching up with each other’s holiday adventures.

The kitchen is fully fitted with all you need to produce hearty fayre for the family and the dining area is welcoming and elegant where you can imagine spending many happy hours enjoying meals together.

Throw open the French doors and step out onto the gorgeous courtyard area where you can pull up a chair at the patio dining table or why not recline on a lounger and really chill out and get into the holiday vibe?

Take your pick of bedrooms when bedtime calls, a super-king-size for the grown-ups and a cool single bed with pull-out truckle bed for the kids.

Both offer a calming sanctuary and it is the tranquil setting of Joiners is what sets it apart, languishing in some 350 acres of grounds of Rousdon Estate with gardens, woodlands and footpaths aplenty to explore.

There is even a (very steep!) footpath leading to a private beach.

A short but scenic drive away is Lyme Regis a beautiful town with narrow streets filled with gorgeous shops and boutiques, and just outside the town there is Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium and Lyme Regis Museum, which both offer a fascinating insight into the history and the marine life of the area.

Tunnel Tree Tops, Axe Valley Wildlife Park, Pecorama Gardens, Seaton Tramway and Beer Heights Light Railway are all within easy reach.

For an idyllic holiday in a rural setting, Joiners ticks all the boxes.
