  • "We loved ammonite."

    Location was perfect and we loved the dog friendly beach for walks. Lyme Regis has everything you need. The chalet was spotless. Very well equipped and beds really comfy. Enclosed dog friendly decking a lovely space and safe for our mini schnauzer daisy to wonder about on. Feeding the birds is always fun. The parking space is a massive bonus. We have already booked for May 2025. Can’t wait to return.

  • "Lovely location and extremely quiet."

    Everything we needed, although no soup ladle! The main bedroom is small, but ok for one person. Sadly no room for suitcase and no bedside table or bedside light. Would it be possible to have bunk beds in that room and the double bed in the other? Would def return.

  • "Great little place, super clean and tidy, plenty of utensils in the kitchen which was great!"

    Mattress on the double bed could do with being replaced, but other than that I can't fault it! Location is perfect, short walk into town, even shorter walk to the beach! We will definitely be returning!

  • "We had a wonderful time at Ammonite."

    Have visited Lyme many times, our first stay this end of town. Brilliant location with view of the sea and close to dog friendly Monmouth beach. Loved the decor on the blue, the colour of the sea! Could tell it was loved and used by owners. Kitchen well equipped. Only niggle was that the double bed mattress was a bit uncomfortable. We will be back!

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    Everything was as described and as shown in the photographs. Fantastic views and a great location, so near the Cobb and Beach - both visible from the property. And a real sun trap! Excellently equipped kitchen, with every utensil or piece of glassware or crockery we needed. And plenty of storage. Beach themed decor throughout is a lovely touch, and welcoming. A slight issue when we arrived was that the keys we collected didn’t have the fob for the barrier from the carpark, but this was quickly sorted so not an issue. Wouldn’t hesitate to book again.

  • "Our 4th stay here at Ammonite as the location is perfect and the outside space is dog proof."

    Well equipped and cosy. Unfortunately we had no Internet for the first three days and LBH insisted it was an ongoing problem in the area. However, hubby sourced and fitted a new internet cable and this solved the problem! As always, we enjoyed our break in Lyme Regis.

    Beautiful chalet,lovely location,very clean,husband loved the binoculars,everything you needed in the kitchen would recommend to any one,only downsize was the Wi-Fi

    Thank you for your positive feedback. I am so sorry about the WiFi, it appears it is a BT open reach problem, rather than a problem with the chalet WiFi. BT are currently investigating and I’m sorry it had an impact on your stay. Property Owner

    The chalet was clean and tidy and had all you needed for a week away and the welcome pack was a nice touch. The enclosed outside space was perfect to relax in the evening with a glass of wine. So many pubs and places to eat within a short walk. We will be returning.

  • "We have stayed at Ammonite last year and returned again this year."

    Ammonite is situated in a very good location to the western end of Lyme Regis being right by the sea but in a quieter part of Lyme but also within close walking distance to all the amenities as well, all appear to be dog friendly. Love the large decked area, we used it constantly with beautiful surrounding views. Ammonite is well appointed with parking for one car just behind. There is a locking gate you should always remember to close as you go out as a public carpark is situated just alongside the chalets and desperate day trippers (especially over the weekends) will try and park up where they shouldn't so always lock as you go, many don't! Eating out we loved Tom's (fish) restaurant and also The Harbour Inn both on the main beach front, BOOKING WELL IN ADVANCE IS A MUST you won't get a walk-in certainly not at peak times. For us the weather was kind, so all in all once again a lovely stay. DOG OWNERS PLEASE BE AWARE ITS TICK SEASON AND OUR DOG GOT BITTEN AND I HAD TO REMOVE A MONSTER TICK SO MAKE SURE YOUR DOG HAS BEEN TREATED BEFORE YOU COME DOWN, CHECK YOUR DOG AFTER EACH WALK AND PACK A TICK REMOVING TOOL AND ANTISEPTIC CREAM JUST IN CASE.

  • "A beautiful chalet with a beautiful view."

    Very peaceful! A big outdoor space for dining and relaxing. Well equipped too many things to mention but everything you need inside and going to the beach. All in all wonderful. The only gripe is the double bedroom which is claustrophobic! The truckle bed should be listed as spare bed! Perfect for an adult or child. Parking available free of charge.

  • "Comfortable but feels tired, decking needs replacing and exterior furniture aged well, loose plinth under kitchen sink and kitchen tap often vibrates when used and constantly drips."

    Very noisy extract fan in bathroom. Would suggest replacing TV with larger size and updated smart type. Also used washing machine once but kept going into fault, but may have been user error. However a very comfortable stay and enjoyed our week.

    The views were stunning and it is so peaceful. We wish we could have been able to put the umbrella up but we we were not strong enough. we found the chalet very hot because we were lucky with sunny weather. Please could there be a ventaxia in the bathroom as it is airless It was beautifully fitted out . We can’t wait to return! Thank you so much for enabling us to stay.

    We have been very lucky to have a long-period of sunny weather in Lyme, and are glad that you had this for your holiday. Thank you for the comment regarding the umbrella, we will ask our team to check it. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Bijou, cute and perfect in every way."

    It has everything you need, was in excellent order and cleanliness and the terrace area afforded privacy and excellent sea views. We got a sense of the owners and it felt like we were staying in a friends holiday home. It's situated a very short flat walk to the beach and to the promenade with the shops behind. You are surrounded by beautiful walks, we walked the coastal path and also the Lim River walk, both exceptionally beautiful in spring with the lush greens and abundant spring flowers and birdsong. The chalet welcome pack was a nice touch! Couldn't fault our stay at all and hope to return, recommended it to our friends and family too.

    Such lovely feedback thank you! The owners take great care of the chalet and really want people to enjoy their precious holiday time. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Having read previous reviews I would agree that there were some old cobwebs and dirt in corners where a bit more attention could have been given like the shower door runners."

    Would have liked a clothes airer for inside use and a potato masher! Plenty of cocktail making equipment but no masher! There was lipstick marks on some of the glasses however. The bin in the kitchen no longer flips up which is very annoying dishwasher tablets but no washing up liquid. We loved the position of the chalet but felt it was expensive for something that is quite tired. The hot water tap has an air lock so makes an annoying sound and there were a lack of purple sacks. Also rather than a welcome pack with expensive items would rather have had a larger milk some bread, butter and Nespresso pods. None of the clocks worked either and there was a lot of ornaments everywhere felt like you were staying in someone’s home and you were in the way - it left little space for you to put your things.

    I'm sorry to hear that there were some cleanliness issues upon arrival. I have referrred your comments to our Housekeeping Team and the property owner. As a local agent we are able to respond to issues that arise during your stay, and would encourage you to contact us so that we can provide you with the best possible holiday experience.

  • "The location of Ammonite was fantastic."

    To wake up and see the sea was awesome. The kitchen was well equipped and is was great to have a dishwasher and washing machine. There were a few niggles which need mentioning - The garden gate will not stay closed without the use of a stone which is not very child and pet safe. Patio doors which are the main access are hard to open and close. As the weather was very hot we opened the second section which is very hard to close - needs two people. There were cobwebs in the lounge and an old dog's bone under the sofa. On arrival no loo roll :( For the three of us and a small dog, Ammonite was perfect. Thank you so much :)

    This is purely petty but I would have liked a mirror in the double bedroom and some shelves in the bathroom. Had a fabulous stay there and wild love to come back again. So peaceful and quiet. Lots of wild birds singing their hearts out and the birds that came for your tit bits of blueberries and grapes. All came so close. The beach themed interior was lovely. Can't praise it enough. Thank you

  • "Ammonite is in a superb location with lovely views of the coastline."

    Adequate parking for one car with public parking close by albeit rather pricey. The chalet has everything you need for a weeks stay, very close to the Marina, restaurants, pubs and shops but also generally peaceful and relaxing, lovely welcome pack left for us as well. We have one dog and we give Lyme Regis the thumbs up for being very dog friendly with 3 out of the 4 beaches allowing dogs, the main Marina beach does not allow dogs and thats quite understandable as families with children predominantly use this beach. I have one small gripe that apart from leaving the chalet tided up and the kitchen area wiped down and utensils washed and put away and rubbish taken out, which we always do, we were also asked the bag up all the towels, strip the beds inc. mattress protectors and put in bags as well.....for the price paid I think this is something that should be done for us.....that said we have booked again for next year as we love this chalet.

With a large decking area and sleeping for four, Ammonite is the perfect base for a family or couple looking to explore the Jurassic coast.

The open-plan living area of this property is bursting with everything you will need to make your trip a delight, with stylish sofas for relaxation, an amply fitted kitchen and a dining area for four, as well as beautiful wooden walls painted a faded blue as though the cottage has been submerged in the sea itself, and the homely paintings and décor only add to the wonderful sea theme of this property.

A double bedroom with the theme of blue makes the perfect place to settle down for the night, with storage and furniture painted in the same vintage look style as the walls, adding a tasteful theme to the room, and there is a second bedroom where a single bed with a pull-out truckle bed will make a great space for children, decorated with a pale blue and driftwood ornaments.

After spending the day at the beach, a bathroom with a walk-in shower will shake the seaside chill from your bones and you will be delighted by the décor in here, including a mirror made to look like a sips window.

The most notable feature of this wonderful property has to be the fantastic decking area, enclosed to ensure safety for children and your four-legged family member, you will find seating and a table allowing you to take in the sea views with a glass of wine or enjoy a family breakfast in the salty air.
