  • "We had a lovely week at sandpiper."

    The location was fantastic to explore Lyme Regis. The house had every we needed for our family of four. The sea view from the top floor living area were amazing, the photos on the website did not do it justice. Overall, I would not hesitate booking again and hope to return again soon.

  • "Ist floor shower is much too small for an adult (tiny)."

    It's adjacent toilet also too cramped. We went as a family of 6, yet there was no facility for a suitably sized washing line! Also, the door leading from the kitchen to the utility room is ridiculously too heavy which kept falling back. Why have such a heavy door? All in all, this is not a properly furnished holiday home and I would not recommend anyone to stay here.

    We hope you enjoyed your family holiday in Lyme Regis. We have not received any previous feedback regarding the door being heavy or the washing line not being big enough but will of course make the owner aware of your comments for consideration. The property is maintained and furnished to a great standard and achieved a 4 tick rating from an independent grading assessment this year. The Lyme Bay Team We too hope you enjoyed your family holiday in Lyme Regis. The Kitchen/Utility door is a fire door and it has to close unaided, I'm sorry you struggled with it. We've recently totally refurbished the 1st floor bathroom, which I hope you agree is modern and functional. Sadly we couldn't increase the size, but we find it's a useful addition when there are 6 people staying. Thank you for your feedback regarding the washing line, we did have a rotary dryer, but listened to previous feedback where it was felt it was too big for the lower part of the patio where most people put the sun loungers out and children liked to play.

  • "We booked for a couple of nights but wished we had more!"

    Fabulous accommodation. Spacious with everything we needed. Very clean and well presented. Lovely view of the sea! Thank you for the welcome pack which was totally unexpected for such a sort stay. A word about location. If you intend to walk into Lyme Regis be aware that whilst not a long walk (approx a mile) the hills are very steep. For us this was not an issue but for some it may be worth noting.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, we're so pleased you enjoyed your short break. We'd love you to come back for a longer visit. Regarding the walk to the town, yes I agree for some the hill might be an issue, if this is the case in our Welcome Folder, we suggest driving to Charmouth Road car park and just walking down the steps to the sea front. We hope the lovely view is worth the walk though. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is very well equipped making for a very comfortable stay."

    The only thing we can think of to criticise was that the list of dates that bins are collected is out of date.

    We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay. I hadn't realised the list was out of date, thank you for drawing our attention to it. Of course you don't have to worry about taking any bins out to the road, on collection day, as they are in a bin store already there. We hope you'll visit us again soon and thank you for your positive feedback. Property Owner

    Everything was clean, comfortable and well presented. The thoughtful Welcome Hamper was much appreciated. Loved the beautiful views from the upstairs living room. Would love to return!

  • "This is the perfect holiday cottage for a fabulous reunion for 3 families who have not met since COVID!"

    Super high quality everything, beautifully clean and well laid out with everything you could need. Thank you for the welcome pack - perfect for when we first arrived after a long journey. The cottage is deceptively big, with both communal and more private areas. We loved the upstairs sitting room with its views of Lyme Bay.

  • "It’s not very good when on the first night water comes flooding Through the roof of the utility room downstairs."

    Okay the guy who came out to help us was really good but the Sykes cottages people never Bothered to call us the next day to check if we were okay, they just left us to it.

    We are sorry for this unforeseen issue, but we're pleased we were able to rectify this immediately. Apologies if you were expecting a follow up call, we generally leave guests on holiday to reach out to us if you have any issues, however we certainly take your feedback on board. Thank you, and we're glad the service when required was to a high level. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

    Great view from upstairs lounge and plenty of room in the house plus great to have parking plus a laundry room. Neighbour very friendly too. Enjoyed the walk down the steps to the beach and was about a 15 min walk to the town. Steep uphill walk back as described am definitely fitter now !

The property

Occupying a superb setting on a small cul-de-sac on the eastern side of Lyme Regis in the heart of Dorset, is this stylish detached holiday home, Sandpiper.

The perfect holiday destination for a large family or a group travelling together, Sandpiper is kitted out with everything you could need to guarantee a relaxing and enjoyable stay.

Thanks to its elevated position, the first-floor sitting room offers sublime views over to the sea and Jurassic coastline making it the perfect place to gather round and socialise together while enjoying those all-important views with French doors opening onto a fantastic balcony so you can soak up the views alfresco.

There is an additional entertaining space in the form of a delightful sunroom which has an extensive seating area and doors opening onto the gardens outside.

When you start feeling hungry, make your way to the fully fitted kitchen which is equipped with all the facilities you need to create some fabulous food for your holiday party with an inviting dining area boasting an attractive woodburning stove to create an extra focal point to the room.

After a long, sociable evening of eating, drinking and entertaining, no doubt you’ll be tired so guests can choose from three charming bedrooms, two king-size and a twin; all are stylishly presented and offer a calm sanctuary away from the hurly burly of holiday life.

Waking up in the morning at Sandpiper is a joy with the balcony a great spot for having breakfast while planning the day’s activities.

There is no shortage of activities for everyone to enjoy in the area so why not have a stroll into Lyme Regis and check out the town’s great collection of shops, cafes and boutiques, its museum and aquarium, and of course, its beach, harbour and causeway?

Jump in the car for a scenic trip to any one of a number of local attractions which include Seaton Tramway, Beer Quarry Caves, Pecorama, Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens and Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary.

No trip to Dorset is complete without a day at the beach so pack a picnic and let’s go fossil hunting at places like Charmouth, Chesil, West Bay and Weymouth.

Sandpiper offers guests a chilled out stay.
