  • "We have had a few holidays in this property."

    The view is amazing and location perfect. It was nice to see some updates this year. The garden wasn’t quite so well maintained or pretty this year but then the weather hasn’t really been kind to gardeners. This was our last hoorah in Lyme Regis as it is just getting too far and too expensive for us. We have lovely memories to keep ❤️

  • "Property was nice and accurate to what was described."

    The parking is an issue but you can park with the Garage open and it works fine. Our only issue was the communication with Sykes. I asked a few questions before we got there but got an acknowledgment but no response. Pretty poor really. Nice house though

  • "This is a comfortable holiday cottage with a superb garden and views."

    Since May 2023 there have been some upgrades, which we appreciated. We hope to be back for a fifth visit next May. Unfortunately the cleaning/housekeeping was not up to the usual standard. This was nothing to do with the owner.

  • "We had a lovely time in this charming well presented & comfortable cottage."

    Its situation is stunning - I especially loved opening the lounge blinds each morning to the sea view & the garden is beautiful. I think the listing on the website could make more clear the parking situation- it is quite tricky with anything other than a small car, & although this would not put me off coming again I was not aware of it when booking.

    But other than that, we enjoyed our stay and found the cottage to be comfortable and the views wonderful.

  • "Lovely stay as usual and nice to meet the owner."

    Appreciate the small changes we suggested in June. Just a couple of small issues: the large rug in the lounge is a trip hazard. A smaller rug in front of the fireplace would be quite adequate.

    Walking down the garden is like stepping into paradise, time stops ticking for a minute.

  • "What a beautiful cottage!"

    It was a lovely surprise being greeted with a welcome pack containing lots of goodies for the week. A kind and generous gesture. Including the helpful pint of milk in the fridge. Thank you so much! The garden was my favorite place to sit. Amazing view of the vast sea, surrounded by beautiful plants. I was in my element. We loved Lyme Regis, thank you so much for a comfortable stay.

  • "We had a magical time at 4 East Cliff."

    The cottage was lovely, clean and bright. The garden was a dream, and the views were just spectacular. The cottage is easy walking into the village and although we rented a car for our trip we only used it to get to Lyme Regis and back to London again. It was easy to find charming and scenic running routes each day, with my favorite being the path to Uplyme along the River Lim - it was storybook scenery and I fully expected Peter Rabbit himself to make an appearance. We can't wait to come back next year! With love from New York. xxx

  • "Super location with stunning views and a great stay (lovely weather)."

    Just a few points concerning facilities: 1. Needs bath mat, the one (in cleaner's cupboard!) is not fit for purpose 2. Grab rails on bath or wall needed for safety 3. Oven gloves needed for safety.in kitchen 4. Fridge freezer compartment needs regularly defrosting (can't close compartment door due to ice build up)

  • "The key was not in the security box."

    A request for assistance was answered quickly and a spare set of keys provided. However the security box, although empty was set at the pre assigned code which could be noted by someone seeking unauthorised entry. The question arises, if the keys are missing, and in addition the code is visible, is the security of the property compromised for the ownwe and the renting client. It is not clear from the promotion details that the rented property garden is not directly behind the property itself, but behind the neighbouring property. Whilst this did not cause a problem, to have a neighbour using a garden directly behind the rented property was a surprise. Having said that, the garden itself was a 5* feature of the property, as was the 1st floor lounge, both with superb views, making the holiday experience wery good.

    Apologies that you had an issue upon arrival with the keys not being available., and thank you for your feedback regarding the key safe. We have amended our description of the garden access to make it clearer that the garden is not immediately outside of the rear of the property. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "This is a great cottage with a most attractive garden and view of the sea."

    It is well placed for walking in to Lyme and the garage space (though a tight squeeze) is very useful. This was our third holiday here. We had beautiful weather so we’re in the garden or on the front nearly all the time. I would agree that some aspects of the accommodation are tired looking.The garden chairs need replacing for instance. I appreciate that some updates have been carried out and we find the beds very comfortable.

    Spacious and comfortable. The only room for improvement is that, for us, the kitchen could have done with a few more items.

    Fabulous sea views from garden and lounge. We would love to return. Feedback not for publication: Bedside lamp closest to the door in lower bedroom did not work - possibly the bulb.

    Thank you for advising us about the bedside lamp, I will arrnage for our maintenance team to take a look. Property Owner

  • "A beautiful place to relax and the view from the garden is stunning."

    Well kept, well presented, with every convenience supplied. Beds were comfortable. The only problem we had was that the shower leaked very badly right down into the downstairs toilet! Even though a plumber came out super-fast, the issue was not resolved and I was concerned about the subsequent guests having their holiday marred by such a problem! All in all, I would go back there in a heartbeat. Thank you.

    Sorry to hear that you experienced an issue with the shower. I hope this didn't spoil your holiday. We do respond quickly to any maintenance issues reported and try to resolve these during a guest's stay where possible. Property Owner

    Our second visit was as good as first. Obviously the views are stunning which is worth it in itself. The place was immaculate and comfy. Its so good to arrive and find milk in the fridge and tea and coffee provided. The garden is a lovely seaside garden and worth a stroll even when too cold to sit. Quiet and yet 5 mind from town.

  • "Lovely cottage but furniture needs improving."

    It looks so quaint and lovely online but doesn't live up to the photos. The mattresses are worn and slope to the middle; the sofa is sagging and offers no support or comfort. The kitchen is well stocked but a second tea towel would have been nice for a week's stay! This would be a top listing if some upgrades were made.

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here."

    Cottage is a real home from home just a short walk into Lyme and to the beach. The garden was a delight with the most amazing sea views, which are also enjoyed from the living room. We holidayed as a couple but plenty of room for five. Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom and shower brand new. Bonus of having parking too. We can't wait to return. Even better if ...some champagne flutes and more than just freeview on TV. Only tiny issues as this accomadation exceeds all expectations. Thank you.

  • "We did find it impossible to park at the garage as there was a car already parked belonging to the holiday residents next door."

    We have a BMW X1, so not overly large. In the end we parked in the car park up the hill. This, obviously added to the holiday cost. One thing I would point out is that I think you should have a hand rail by the shower for safety purposes. Apart from these points the cottage and view are stunning. Extremely clean, welcome pack a nice surprise. The property didn't really feel like a holiday home, more a home from home.

  • "A lovely cottage in a fabulous position."

    The views across the sea and coast line are beautiful. It’s just a few minutes walk into town and to the beach meaning we didn’t need to use the car which was a real bonus. The kitchen was clean and equipped well for a week’s holiday. The beds were comfortable. The shower powerful. The lounge comfy (with that wonderful view). The only thing missing was pegs for the washing line (there’s some there now). Lyme Regis is a lovely little town, incredibly friendly! The Ammonite pavement at Monmouth beach is stunning and local icecreams aplenty - we had a lovely week.
