Welcome to Weighbridge Cottage!

Newly renovated to a high standard, this is an airy holiday home for up to 5 people plus 2 cots in central Lyme Regis and is 4 minutes easy stroll from the beach!

Despite its name, Weighbridge cottage is a three story townhouse on Church Street in central Lyme Regis.
It's close to everything, yet peaceful and tranquil. There's private off road parking right next to the front door.

I have tried to include everything you need, toys and games, and beach stuff

The space
From the first of December the sitting room will be decorated with twinkling fairy lights and a golden Christmas Tree.

Sadly I won't be welcoming you in person at this difficult time but there's a key safe to the left of the front door.
l am wiping down as many surfaces as I can with a solution containing 75% methylated spirits which my research tells me will kill the corona virus. lm also washing all linens and towels at 60 degrees. Obviously l can't garentee that my house is Covid free but I'm doing the best I can.

There is a private, under cover, off road , parking space right next to the front door, a must in Lyme Regis in the summer. If you are coming in two cars there is a cheap long stay carpark just up the road in Charmouth Road .

Bedroom two has 2 single beds that can be zip and linked to make a super king bed if two couples are staying There's also a trundle bed which slides out from under one of the beds and can accommodate either an adult or a child. All the beds have new mattress from The Woolroom, contain no chemicals and are super comfortable. All the duvets are pure new wool and are hypoallergenic.

Where you’ll be

Dorset, England, United Kingdom

Lyme Regis is a lovely old seaside town mentioned in the Doomsday Book. Built on two sides of a valley, on the world heritage Jurassic coast it is famous for its fossils and the fossil hunter Many Anning.The beach is sheltered by the Cob made famous in The French Lieutenant Woman and is part pebbles and part golden sand. Marine Parade which runs along the back of the beach is perfect for a gentle stroll, or for getting from one part of the beach to another.
A minutes walk down Church street
is the Marine Theatre and the Tourist Information centre.
There are numerous cafes and restaurants in Lyme Regis, but if you want to go really up market and eat some wonderful fish,go to HIX Oyster and Fish House. Many of my guests also visit River Cottage near Axminster
Or why not go out in one of the boats for hire, either to go mackerel fishing or to see the beautiful Jurassic Coast from the sea.

You can visit the Museum which has a collection of rare fossils and an exhibition of the life of Mary Anning, the famous Lyme Regis fossil collector.
Or visit Dinosaurland and Museum which also has rare local fossils.

You could also visit The Marine Aquarium situated on the end of The Cobb where you can see a collection of local marine species.

The museum also runs fossil walks, as does the fossil shop and museum on Charmouth Beach.

There are other beaches you can visit including Charmouth Beach with its fossil Museum and shop. Seatown a beautiful dog friendly country beach with The Anchor right on the shore. Eype Beach a wild and dog friendly beach,West Bay a quirky little seaside resort where Broadchurch was filmed
and Hive Beach just behond Burton Bradstock with its award winning Hive Beach cafe and restaurant.

There are numerous places to explore around Lyme Regis, including Bridport, with its vibrant Wednesday and Saturday street market, Arts Centre, Museum and Antique Centre. Bridport also has four supermarkets including a Waitrose and a Lidle. However your nearest large supermarket is Tescos in Axminster. There is also a smaller Tesco's and a Co Op in Broad street in Lyme Regis.

In Bridport there are numerous small independent shops cafes and restaurants and is home to a wonderful hat shop, Snooks,which started the Bridport hat festival, which takes place
on the first weekend in September. There is also a Boots, Superdrug, Waterstones and numerous charitie shops,where l seem to buy most of my clothes!

Bridport has a great leisure centre with a 25 metre swimming pool- where l swim a kilometre every morning- a large baby pool and a well equipped fitness suite.

For those of you who are passionate gardeners, as I am, there is Groves Garden Centre,a wonderful place , off the big roundabout coming into Bridport.

Then there is the beautiful Devon and Dorset countyside to explore. With its rolling hills, patchwork of small fields and the coastal footpath with breathtakingly beautiful views of the Jurasic coast.

There is a wonderful adventure play ground with a seperate area for little children and a playing field behind the house which is accessed from Lym Close and can be seen from the back bedroom.

If it's a wet day and you want to do something with all the family, why not visit the Jurassic fun park in The Freshwater caravan park . lt has an indoor swimming pool with slide and baby pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. Open from 10am to 6pm everyday it costs just £5.80 for adults and £3.40 for children. lts about 15 miles from Lyme Regis and is on the road from Bridport to Burton Bradstock.

l hope you enjoy your stay in Lyme Regis

I adore living in gorgeous Dorset and enjoy long walks along the beautiful jurassic coastline.
I look forward to meeting you welcoming you to my guest house which I bought and renovated recently in order to see me through my retirement.
I had such fun doing up the house, and tried to think of everything you might need
I'm particularly pleased with the beds which are super comfortable, and have had rave reviews.
