  • "We love Harville Cottage."

    We have stayed in two others places in Lyme Regis before we stayed in Harville and this is the third year we have stayed here and it feels like second home. Well done for the refurbished downstairs toilet. It looks great. Thumbs up for the cleaning team. My white socks were as white as when I put them on in the morning after walking up and down the floors.

  • "The sound of the sea is always with you here and I just love that."

    The shops are a couple of minutes one way and the cobb the same the other. The cottage itself is well appointed generally although a smart TV would be a nice addition The proof of the pudding etc and we have booked this a few times now- enjoy!

  • "It was a pleasure to stay in Harville Cottage."

    It had all we needed for our stay and what a stay we had. What a view to wake up to and to be able to walk out the door onto the seafront. My son even played the sound of the sea on our first night back home. It was certainly a memorable family experience. I think most of us would agree we’d love to come back

  • "We took my elderly parents here again, this time for their 66th wedding anniversary and it was perfect, restaurants etc easily accessible and a great view from the bay window."

    They enjoyed sitting outside and chatting with friendly (and envious!) passers-by. Great to be able to swim straight from the cottage. The main bedroom is spacious and welcoming. We had the small twin room up in the attic but the beds were very comfortable! Sadly I don’t think they could manage the stairs this year, otherwise we’d be back there again!

  • "We loved our stay at Harville Cottage."

    It's the perfect location for a seaside break - right on the beach and within minutes of shops, restaurants and bars. Comfortable and well stocked, with a lovely welcome hamper of local (and very tasty) food, the house is perfect for a family of four. Thank you.

  • "We love this cottage."

    This is the second time we returned to this property. Slightly disappointed not to see a nespresso machine as suggested in my review last year. The cottage is very comfortable and almost everything is branded with John Lewis. The kitchen is well equipped. The location is idea, right by the beach and very central to quite a few eateries. Highly recommended.

    We're so pleased that you chose to return to the cottage for another holiday. All of our properties do provide a cafetirere to make fresh coffee. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Easily the best holiday cottage we have taken in the UK ever!"

    Location location location and lovely, homely facilities with everything you could ever need provided. The welcome pack was super - thank you. One very minor issue - the front door lock was temperamental and needed a good bit of wiggling the key to open door from outside!

    Thank you for making such kind comments about Harville Cottage. We will ask our Maintenance Team to take a look at the front door lock. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "The cottage is in an amazing location, right on the beachfront, so there are wonderful sea views, and lots of seaside activity to watch!"

    Plus, there is the constant soothing background sound of the waves. The cottage has been very thoughtfully furnished and equipped, and helpful notes have been provided on practicalities.

    What a lovely review, hearing the waves in the background is just the best! Thank you for staying at Harville. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cosy cottage with fabulous views to the sea and The Cobb."

    The welcome pack provided on our arrival was much appreciated. The cottage is very well equipped and provides a parking permit for one of the local car parks which is very handy. There are also two EV chargers in the car park which was great for us having an electric car. Staying in the winter meant we were able to watch the rough seas from the comfort of the lounge and lying in bed listening to the waves at night was very relaxing. Lots of good eating places within walking distance of the cottage. Would highly recommend staying at Harville Cottage to others.

  • "The property needs a bit of tlc, the windows were constantly letting water through in the strong rain no wind!"

    Which lead to the property being quite cold! Other then that we would stay again

  • "We absolutely loved this cottage, the only negative was the heating."

    We had to switch the radiators off, particularly the one in the entrance hall it was overwhelmingly hot. Other than that the cottage was stunning

  • "Harville Cottage was the perfect place to celebrate my parents' 65th wedding anniversary."

    They loved sitting outside on the folding chairs provided and chatting to all the friendly passers-by (someone said 'you've got the best spot in Lyme Regis!') It was well-equipped and comfortably furnished and the view from the sitting room bay window was amazing. We loved it too as we could pop across to the beach for a swim whenever we liked, and it was so easy to get to pubs and restaurants along the sea front. Having the car park permit was very handy too. We would definitely stay here again!

  • "This cottage is the third one we have been in in Lyme Regis in as many years, and we lucked out with this one and it’s a keeper."

    It’s charming and comfortable. Amazing sea view. If we had wanted to cook, everything was there in terms of equipment. It’s almost home away from home except for a Nespresso machine! The Yale door lock is a bit tricky to open. It needs patience and wiggling! I would also feel safer if there was another bolt lock at the bottom of the door on the inside. We’ll be back here annually! In fact we already booked for a week for May next year.

  • "Such a delight to stay in this lovely cottage a step away from the sea."

    The only minor point was that the correct bin bags were not left for rubbish collection, but when I rang the bags were left that day for us. Also as there were two of us staying who did different things during the day it would have been helpful to have 2 keys instead of one. Thank you Esyllt

With a beach quite literally at your fingertips and a taste of history, Harville Cottage is the ideal family holiday home.

Be welcomed into a traditional seaside cottage, receiving a welcome hamper on arrival to make your holiday extra special before you find your way into the sitting room where roof beams and a traditional fireplace add a sense of history and you can warm your feet beside the electric fire stove as you recline in one of the blue sofas and plan the day ahead of you with a view through the bay windows of the sea.

When stomachs start to rumble, find yourself in the spacious kitchen/diner where you can indulge in a heart-warming meal together at the dining table whilst the handy utility room takes care of your sandy clothes.

Take a relaxing shower in the spacious and contemporary shower-room before getting cosy in one of the two bedrooms available.

A spacious king-size bedroom with white walls, charming furniture and a vie across the beach will make the perfect place to cosy up for the night and on the second floor you will find a wonderful twin bedroom perfect for children.

Lyme Regis is a seaside resort that offers so many activities for you to try out, including kayaking at the local beach where you can hire a boat and head out into the waves.

Enjoy a stroll along the beach or a spot of fossil hunting at the close by Monmouth Beach before visiting the local museums and Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium to find out more about the history and wildlife of the local area.

Visit the wonderful Langmoor and Lister Gardens and explore the fantastic shops on offer, selling everything from hand-made craft, art and fossils.

When mealtimes call, a variety of eateries awaits where you can end the day with a hot meal and a glass of your favourite beverage in hand.
