  • "Thank you for the use of your cottage We thought the location was great and easy to get into Lyme Regis …."

    The cottage did smell damp and the bedding etc had a musty smell. The front door is not easy to open due to the wooden door swelling in wet weather. The towels were tiny and not enough of them the en suite toilet broke on our first day we could not use it When it’s flushed the toilet makes the sink gurgle and the smell from the toilet comes up through the sink. We found glass in our shower tray. The welcome pack was very nice

  • "Fabulous week the holiday delivered in every way."

    Close to sea, amenities, pubs, bars and restaurants. The house was clean, comfortable and was everything we wanted and more will definitely be back A**** For future holiday makers we managed to get 2 cars in the space with a lot of shuffling which was great. Only down was no internet for the week as there were issues and it wasn’t able to be sorted.

  • "We’ve been to honeysuckle cottage for at least the past 4 years we reported a leak in the shower that has come through into the sitting room making it damp, a few years ago."

    It didn’t actively leak this week but you can see it’s still happening a shame as this is a beautiful property a few extension leads would be good as everyone has different devices and it is difficult to accommodate everything and everyone. Also though comfy the bed in the main room is very small. Overall we love this cottage and it’s situation

  • "Lovely cottage had a comfortable stay."

    Perfect position in Lyme. The second time we have stayed in Honeysuckle cottage but I’m afraid the price now is far to high for our family.

  • "As other reviewers have said, apart from the kitchen, the cottage is run down and in need of considerable refurbishment."

    We had to go and buy an oven glove. Our problem with overflowing rubbish bins was dealt with quickly and effectively. But the main problem is the parking and the information supplied on line is misleading. Access to the parking is not only dependent having a small car (unlikely if you are a family of four or more) with wing mirrors that fold in, it also relies on the people using the adjacent public parking space parking well within the marked bay which they do not always do. As we discovered to our cost, including a scraped front car wing, planned excursions may have to be abandoned because it is simply not possible to get the car out. In desperation, on our last afternoon we parked illegally on the access area so that we could be sure of getting our car out by 10.00 am as required for our departure the following morning.

    Thank you for your feedback and soory to hear that you experienced some issues with parking during your stay. We have reworded the information provided about parking at the cottage to make it clearer. Property Owner

  • "Great location."

    We loved being in the center with everything within a short walk. Although parking was tight having a parking space was great and we didn't go out much in any event. The accommodation was disappointing though, it was very tired looking and in need of refurbishment. The carpet downstairs was heavily stained, the wall paper was peeling off, some windows were broken and the sofas were extremely uncomfortable and are in desperate need of replacing. The kitchen was lovely and newly refurbished. It had everything you would need for a stay. The dining room furniture was great and nice to have a large table to play games on etc. The beds were comfy but the bedrooms themselves could again do with a repaint and there were some broken windows which really need to be replaced. The location as I say was amazing but the property itself is in need of some redecoration.

    Thank you for the feedback. The owner is making some updates to the living room, including new curtains, carpet and updating the windows. Property Owner

  • "Excellent location."

    Handy parking space. Well equipped kitchen. Great to have two bathrooms. Settees/sofas in lounge are uncomfortable and need to be replaced. Carpets down stairs appear dirty and marked. Outside furniture was covered in bird faeces and hasn’t been moved for a long time so we were unable to use. Just a short walk from the beach, but the accommodation was not as high a standard as previous four star properties we have stayed in with Lyme Bay Holidays.

  • "Great property, fantastic location."

    Good communications. Parking a little tight, but it does say small to medium car in listing. Beautiful welcome pack with local produce. We stayed as a family with two children 8 and 6 and they lived the location.

  • "We stayed for 2 weeks and had a lovely time."

    On arrival hand soap, bin bag and toilet roll provision were not adequate for a 2 week stay and there was no pro active approach from Lyme Bay to replenish. Over a 2 week stay we would have appreciated either better initial stocks or a replenishment visit after a week and clearer guidance on clean sheet and towel provision so we could change them. The cottage isn't well set up for lots of linen laundry.The cottage is well located and comfortable but looking a little tired for a 4 star rating: one window pane was cracked, dvd player did not work, one bed partly collapsed, shower knob jammed, kitchen sink mixer spout came off. All things that were mostly manageable but not expected at 4 star. Parking space was very welcome but on one occasion we were blocked from access by a lyme bay holidays van parked in the keep clear area in front of the gates. Instead of an apology we got a " got do my jobs" from the driver. We had a lovely holiday and enjoyed staying in the cottage. It is a big and well located just some quality aspects weren't quite up to 4 star standards.

  • "The cottage was well appointed with plenty of kitchen equipment."

    Beds very comfortable. The window ledges a bit dirty ( one with crawling ants) The outside courtyard needs attention. My husband spent an hour sweeping it, cleaning the furniture and cutting back the overgrown shrubbery. There is a dangerous broken wooden bench which needs to be removed. Overall a lovely family holiday cottage. Could be outstanding with a few tweaks.

  • "Whilst the cottage was in a very good central position, as per a previous review we were disappointed with the quality of the cottage."

    The sofas in the sitting room seem to have lost their support and we found them very uncomfortable. The inside looks in need of redecoration and the courtyard area is very unkempt and not welcoming. We did take out some of the larger weeds! On the plus side the kitchen is good and the furniture in the dining room is very good. We also found the bed in the en-suite very comfortable.

    Spacious,clean and well positioned. Settee and chair in lounge very tired and low so I personally had problems getting up but overall a well equipped and lovely accommodation.

  • "Hm..."

    . Lovely cottage, in brilliant location. But. Despite being rated as 4-star (and with a 4-star price) in our view it was only really at most a 3-star. The inside was dowdy, same dreary colour in the whole cottage, needed a good decorate, hardly any power sockets, several windows that wouldn't open and all single glazed with broken latches. Looks like it hadn't been touched for many many years except it had a nice new kitchen. One settee was broken and very uncomfortable, the other and the chair just uncomfortable. Was a bit grubby throughout, cobwebs in corners of every room, carpets cheap, same thoughout and several stains. Heating electric and uncontrolable. Outside hadn't been swept for weeks if not months, plants overgrown, pots untouched and unweeded. Very grubby by kitchen door with some plastic toys full of stagnant water and just been left for quite sometime... Whilst we have enjoyed our break very much this is the first time we have had a poor experience with a Lyme Bay Holidays cottage. It seems to us that it is being used as a cash cow, getting away with spending anything on it to maximise profit. The TV did breakdown and Lyme Bay Holidays were exceptional in replacing it the same day....

The property

Traditionally part of a medieval stable, this stunning Grade II listed building has been carefully renovated to create a wonderful holiday home.

In a prime location for visiting the coast and town centre of Lyme Regis, Dorset, Honeysuckle Cottage is perfect for a family or group of adults looking to explore the Jurassic coast.

Be welcomed to this property by a wonderful cobbled courtyard and the historic stone exterior of the building, with a splash of colour from the yellow window frames.

Make yourself at home in the wonderful sitting room where blue sofas surround an electric fire stove, and traditional half-moon windows let in natural light, a lovely place to spend an evening relaxing.

When stomachs start to rumble, make your way into the kitchen where stylish grey and pale wood furniture and ample amenities create a contemporary space for the designated chef to rustle up a heart-warming meal made from local produce, which you can enjoy in the dining room with homely décor.

Be encouraged to snuggle down for the night in one of the three bedrooms, beginning with a King-size bedroom with red décor, ample storage and a contemporary en-suite shower-room, and next you will find a double bedroom with green décor and tasteful wooden furniture and finally a twin bedroom with yellow walls, perfect for children, as well as a contemporary bathroom, where you can relax amongst the bubbles after a long day spent at the beach.

With a Mediterranean feel from the palm trees and painted widow frames, enjoy breakfast in the courtyard before heading out to explore the town.

Lyme Regis is a seaside town with fantastic access to a handful of stunning beaches, the closest to the property being Church Bay, however access to the more well-known Monmouth and Lyme Regis Fossil bay can be found by walking along the seafront, enjoying boats bobbing in the sunshine and the vast seascape ahead, before reaching the rocky shores and enjoying a wild swim or fossil hunting amongst the rocks.

Head into town for a bite to eat at one of the many eateries or end the day in a pub with a view to the ocean and a glass of your favourite beverage in hand.

Lyme Regis also has many other attractions, including two museums, a garden and an aquarium.

Make the perfect seaside holiday with a stay at Honeysuckle Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
