  • "What a lovely cottage!"

    Everything was perfect and we wished, we would have rented it for more than 2 days!!

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Waverley and we look forward to welcoming you again in future. Property Owner

  • "One of the best properties we have stayed in at Lyme over the years of visiting, the property was spacious, cozy and warm and had most things needed."

    My only negative if I had to give any would be the cleanliness off the decking, this has not been swept for sometime and the last occupants had missed cleaning up after a dog. We sorted this ourselves but would have been nice if the cleaning team had just checked it before our arrival.

    We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your kind comments. The decking area is swept regularly and jet washed monthly but the pesky seagulls do not seem to care! We would love to welcome you to Waverley again in the future. Kindest regards. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay thank you."

    Cottage very homely & everything we needed. I was able to cook as everything was supplied that I needed. The only negative is the cushions for the outside seating needs a new home from under the stairs when you want to sit around the table the are in the way. Thank you so much for the welcome pack that was a lovely touch. Other than that it’s a perfect place to stay so close to town & amenities. We would definitely book here again. Thank you

    So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Providing an outdoor storage box for the garden seating cushions is a great idea! We look forward to welcoming you again. Property Owner

  • "The property was beautiful."

    The only issues with it were the difficulty on arrival and departure, having to park temporarily a little distance away and climb a steep slope; and the low ceilings upstairs. However both of these issues were clearly highlighted. We also had a problem that, on arrival, we found that the beds were unmade with dirty linen left on the floor. But this was quickly and efficiently resolved. The standard of the house is excellent, the outside has been set up brilliantly and the location is excellent.

    The owner has worked really hard to make the outside space a great useable feature, so it's wonderful to hear how much it's appreciated. Apologies for the issue with the beds and linen, and we are glad that we were able to assist you to resolve this. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "We had a fabulous stay at the Waverley."

    It has everything you could ever want in holiday accommodation, stylishly furnished, clean, comfy beds and a fantastic garden area with a beautiful view! Our two children 9 an 6 loved it especially the garden space! 10 minute walk to the beach with all the shops and cafes nearby we could not have asked for anything more. Thank you for the lovely welcome pack too. We would not hesitate to recommend and hope to stay at the lovely Waverley again one day

    Thank you so much for your feedback - we are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Waverley and look forward to welcoming you again in future. Property Owner

  • "This was our 5th consecutive stay and the first under the new ownership."

    The new decoration was very nice, but could be very dark on a dull day. The outside space is really lovely, the increased decking and addition of the planters has made a lovely garden and a much more useable space, a big improvement. The only negative we had was that we felt the furniture is very overcrowded. There were only 2 of us, 4 people would have struggled with the lack of downstairs space. It is always a pleasure to stay at Waverley and we have had a lovely holiday.

    We are so glad to welcome you back to Waverley and thrilled that you had a lovely holiday. Its great to hear that you enjoyed the updated outdoor space and new seating area. We look forward to hosting you again in future, best regards. Property Owner

  • "The written description of this property is very accurate apart from some very important omissions."

    It is beautifully presented with a lovely garden/patio. It is well equipped and maintained with everything you could want. There was also a very nice welcome bag of lovely goodies. However, we would not book again for the following reasons: The description does not let you know that the car park is down and then up very steep inclines. You can't unload outside the property so everything has to be dragged, down hill from the car park, then uphill to the property by way of a trolley. We are both fit over 65s but found this very challenging. There were 2 of us with luggage, the dog with dog bed etc and a couple of bags of essential food as its self catering. The other issue was the sloping ceilings in both bedrooms. We slept in the double and as the shortest at 5 ft 3 I got the side of the bed with the slope (spandrel.) I either banged my head or had to crick my neck over to walk around the bed. So, to conclude, the written description is accurate other than the omissions of the 2 above issues I've mentioned. We enjoyed our holiday in Lyme Regis but this left a rather flat note.

    Thanks for your feedback and glad to hear you enjoyed your hamper of treats. We have amended the property description to more accurately reflect the location of the property in relation to the car park. It is because Waverley is located on a peaceful, pedestrian lane dating back to Saxon times that makes it so appealing to many of our guests. We provide a trolley for guests to use and also a parking permit for the car park. The sloping ceilings in the upstairs bedrooms are a feature of a cottage property and we have updated our listing to make this clear to future guests. We are glad you enjoyed your holiday in Lyme Regis, kindest regards. Property Owner
