  • "Our second time in this cottage and we couldn’t hope for anything better."

    It’s well equipped, extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. The location is perfect, tucked away but minutes from town. Perfect.

    Thank you for your kind and positive feedback. We are so glad that you returned. We love where we are too - as you said tucked away yet minutes from the beach, the Cobb, restaurants and shops. You are most welcome and thank you again for your lovely feedback. Property Owner

  • "Wonderful holiday accommodation."

    Clean, cosy. Comfortable and spacious. Great location and parking a bonus. Welcome bag a lovely gift on arrival. Would definitely return and highly recommend. Would just perhaps advise to expand the instructions for the new TV as took a while to get to grips with. Likewise the heating system. We got there in the end but with a bit of time spent working it out.

    Thank you for your very lovely comments and we are so glad that you will return. We will address your comments about the new tv and heating system and make the usage instructions clearer. Thank you Property Owner

  • "The home is lovely, charming with a very good location!"

    Well equipped, but some extra teatowels and an extra dishcloth would be really nice.

    Thank you for your kind words. We love our location too. I will pass your comments on about tea towels and dishcloth to Sykes Holudays our letting agents. Property Owner

  • "We had the best stay last week."

    House was lovely and very well presented and equipped. My parents had the twin room and did find the mattresses very hard, although that could be down to personal taste. The seagulls really do enjoy target practice on the house..Must be a full time job for the poor owners with cleaning and painting but we did find it quite amusing..little trouble makers

    You are quite right. Our location being so close to the beach and sea means that we repaint the outside of our house at least 5 times each year!! It’s like painting the Forth Bridge! I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage, spacious and very well appointed."

    Lovely bed and crisp clean bed linen with plenty of pillows. Towels sparkling white and the whole cottage spotless. Warm and comfortable living room and well equipped kitchen. Ideal location with the added bonus of parking. No criticism whatsoever.

    Thank you for your very lovely comments. We appreciate your positive feedback and so glad that you had a very happy time in Lyme Regus. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "This house was great for us as a family with two primary-aged children."

    It is a bit tired and dated in places, but we were happy with the facilities (especially kitchen) and would definitely stay here again one day! We love how close it is to the seafront and Lyme Regis Museum - almost across the road really - plus so helpful to have car parking. The kids loved how quirky it was to have two staircases inside. Beach toys in the storage case outside were such a great touch, thank you. We also loved that this time my parents could rent Cleve Cottage which shares a courtyard, making this a lovely family holiday.

    Thank you for your feedback and so glad that your children liked our house, it’s quirky features, the beach toys and the proximity to the town and beach. Parts of our house are 300 plus years old and may be forgiven for appearing dated. Property Owner

  • "My partner and I found the property to be clean, comfortable and very well-kitted out."

    The stairs might be a little tricky for elderly guests but we managed them okay. The house is also very conveniently situated for the beach and sea-front shops and it is very likely that we will want to holiday there again.

    Thank you for your positive feedback. We do hope you get to return to Lyme Regis. Property Owner

  • "Luckily we did not want to do much self catering but if would have we couldn't get the hob to work."

    As this was the last day of our stay when we tried to use it we didn't bother contacting anyone. Looking through the visitors book comments others have had a similar problem so am surprised no clearer instructions or an easy to use hob not installed. As usual we have a wonderful few days in Lyme.

    It saddens us that this feedback relates to just the last day. Our kitchen has excellent facilities for self catering with a new smeg hob , oven, grill, slow cooker, microwave, griddle and more. The clear manual for the hob is in both guest folders and the instructions are simply written in the guest comment book too. The standard on / off icon is touch control and I have shown this in text and pictures. I hope this lag day didn’t spoil your weeks stay. Property Owner

  • "Nice quaint fisherman's cottage - as a couple we enjoyed this place very much, offered all we required."

    Good quality beds and linen. Well stocked kitchen. The heating and hot water is excellent and clear to operate. Tight route to parking area but how good to get parking so close to the bay. Late sun on the decking is a great spot to enjoy. Two minutes to the seafront on foot.

The property

A cottage situated in the town centre of Lyme Regis within a grade II listed fisherman’s cottage.

With fantastic access to the town centre and beach, Cleve House is the perfect base for a family looking to explore the Jurassic coast.

Be welcomed by sage steps leading up to the cottage after you have used the off-road parking provided.

Unpack before making yourself at home in a wonderful sitting/dining area with old wooden décor which forms part of the original house, mixed with contemporary furniture including a leather sofa and a wooden dining table, creating a wonderful social space for all guests to enjoy.

When stomachs start to rumble, you can make your way to the fantastic little kitchen with fresh white décor, a spacious work area which is bursting with home-from-home amenities to make cooking easy and to encourage everyone to enjoy creating a culinary masterpiece which you can enjoy on the dining table in the living area or the breakfast table in the kitchen.

Enjoy a refreshing shower before settling down for the night in one of the bedrooms available, including a double with ample space, a theme of blue, writing desk and homely décor and a twin room with a seaside theme throughout which is perfect for children.

Outside, a wonderful raised decking area will make a great spot to enjoy a hot chocolate after exploring the town.

Just outside of the property you will find yourself in the heart of Lyme Regis, where a great number of facilities are available to you, beginning with local shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes where a meal out will be a must.

You can enjoy a walk along the harbour before visiting one of the two museums, Lyme Regis Museum and the Dinosaurland Fossil Museum, both inspiring you to explore the Jurassic coast to see what fossils you can find.

Monmouth and Lyme Regis Fossil Bay are both within an easy distance and you can take to the water in a kayak or even enjoy wild swimming.
