  • "The cottage was very comfortable and cosy."

    The bedroom was a particularly lovely and relaxing environment with a very comfy bed. The kitchen was very well equipped. I had misunderstood that the garden wasn’t directly accessed from the house, but via the shared corridor and a space shared with the next door houses, so it meant having to get dressed to take the dog outside for his morning wee, but that’s no biggie, as long as you’re aware. It was great having the parking space at the back. So handy. I was initially a bit concerned that the door into the house wasn’t very sturdy as I was on my own, but the doors at the end of the shared corridor are sturdy.

    We were pleased to hear that you found the cottage comfortable and cosy. The garden now has an enclosed picket fence around it, making it more private. Also regarding the door, this can be locked by a key from the inside which is secure. We were also pleased that you found the kitchen well equipped. Property Owner

  • "A washing machine would be handy but otherwise facilities and utilities were fine."

    All very clean and well maintained. Thank you.

    Lovely to hear that you found the cottage clean and well-maintained. We ensure that the cottage is cleaned to a high standard and well-maintained before all guests arrive. Most small holiday lets don't supply a washing machine however there is a laundrette in Lym Close, just off Church Street. Property Owner

  • "Thank you for an enjoyable stay at Dolphin Cottage."

    Very clean and so close to the beach. Fantastic to have a parking space. We enjoyed some of the local restaurants, particularly the Hix Oyster and Fish House and the Indian in Lyme. Thank you for a comfortable stay.

  • "We have had a relaxing holiday with plenty of long walks with my dogs, Angus and Mai, discovering more of Lyme Regis."

    The weather has been kind and we only got wet a couple of times! Plenty of very nice local shops and pleasant people to chat to as I have walked in the park and along the front. Dolphin Cottage had all the facilities we required.

  • "The cottage was charming and clean."

    Also when I needed help logging onto the WiFi it was answered very quickly and without me needing to be back in the property so I was very relieved.

  • "Lovely holiday cottage and really well located."

    Beautifully presented. Parking space is tight if other cars are present - we scraped the gate post and damaged our car due to a thoughtlessly parked car in another spot protruding past their parking space. Ended up using the larger car park up the hill.

    We are so pleased that you found the cottage beautifully presented and really well located. Thank you for letting us know about the parking issue which is the first time this has been identified. We have subsequently placed protective guards around the main gate post to stop this issue from happening again. Property Owner

The property

Located in the heart of the quaint seaside town of Lyme Regis, Dorset, 1 Dolphin Cottages offers characterful accommodation close to the town centre, beaches, and famous Cobb harbour.

This pet-friendly cottage is the perfect base for a family or couple looking to holiday in Dorset at any time of the year.

Once forming part of Lyme’s many inns and converted back to cottages, Dolphin Cottage retains much charm and offers characterful accommodation with bright and airy décor throughout.

The sitting room houses an ornamental fireplace, tasteful furniture, and a window seat, where you can enjoy your favourite book, or watch the world go by.

Rustle up a family dinner in the freshly styled kitchen with all of the amenities to assist you in your self-catering requirements.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, a spacious king-size bedroom at the front of the cottage and a smaller bedroom, with bunk beds, located at the rear.

The bright family bathroom is also located on this floor and has a bath with shower over, ideal for a refreshing morning shower before you begin your day. Outside the garden, located at the rear of the property, is a peaceful place to enjoy the sun, or evening drinks.

Mainly gravel with a patio area and mature cottage planting, this delightful space provides the opportunity to dine alfresco during the warmer months of the year.

The cottage is set back from the hustle and bustle of the town but is in quiet street with fairly level access to the sea, only a short stroll away.

Lyme Regis is a thriving seaside town full of amazing activities and intriguing history and is well known for being the heart of the Jurassic Coast, where visitors can enjoy walks along the seafront and south west coast path, as well as spending time on the beaches with the family perhaps finding fossils amongst the rocky shores.

If you wish to know more about the prehistoric world hidden beneath the rocks, take a visit to Dinosaurland Fossil Museum in Lyme Regis or the Heritage Coast Centre at Charmouth.

The area offers a great selection of eateries, restaurants and pubs, many of which showcase local food and beverages, and there are also ample independent stores selling local art and craft to be explored.

Other popular days out include the Axe Valley Wildlife Park or the Donkey Sanctuary at Sidmouth, which is open throughout the year.

Make a family holiday you will remember with a stay at 1 Dolphin Cottages.

the driveway and paths at the rear of the cottage are shared with No.2 & 3
