Fantasy home by the sea!

  • 5 of 5

I first saw this house on TV, ‘Fantasy Homes by the sea’, and fantastic it is! We arrived when Storm Brian was predicted and wondered what to expect. We were safe, we were dry and we had the wonderful view and sound of the sea pounding against the beach. We all loved every minute.. We had good walks along the prom and even swims in the sea from our own front door.

As you can guess, we are an outdoor family of eight but the house was a wonderful base and really made our holiday. There are eight of us, with ages falling between 11 and 75, but there was plenty of space for everyone and each could have private space if needed. The house is furnished and equipped in a very comfortable style, with everything you could wish for, and to stay in such an old and beautiful house was a pleasure and a privilege. We were even able to enjoy the little patio at the front, facing south and with the same stunning views yet relatively private. A summer’s evening sitting here must be stunning.

It is also rather nice to be in a house which attracts the attention of almost all passers by - so historic, unique and quirky - but high up and out of their way. Just quite amusing! However, there are a lot of steps, but I am the Grandma of the group....and I will definitely come back another time!

This holiday rental was a Christmas present (last year) for all my family but they are already clamouring for it to happen again.

We have all had an unforgettable time. Thanks, Mark.

Amazing house in unbeatable location; upkeep could be improved on

  • 4 of 5

In terms of bricks and mortar, this house is in many ways unbeatable: a stunning historic building just yards from the beach. However, it's not inexpensive, and for the price I did feel towels should be included, along with adequate cleaning materials (don't love having to buy bin liners, washing-up liquid, dish cloths etc while on holiday). A few cosmetic upgrades could also make a big difference (blinds in the kids' bedroom were damaged; several light bulbs needed replacing; terrace clearly hadn't been swept for months, etc). A little bit more attention to detail could make a big difference!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the valuable feedback. We usually leave out cleaning materials, bin liners and loo roll but something must have gone wrong here? Most rental companies in Lyme Regis charge extra for towels but I agree this should be included which is why you haven't been charged for them. Other items will be attended to by our handy man.

Lovely seafront stay

  • 5 of 5

Weekend with friends to celebrate a birthday. Beautiful location and well equipped. Amazing coastal and sea views from each of the front rooms. Great selection of eateries, shops and walks close by (we went to River Cottage HQ for a farmhouse dinner which was well worth it). The location and the visual impression of this building make it very memorable. I'm not sure you could get closer to the sea!

Five ladies on their annual weekend away in Lyme Regis

  • 5 of 5

The Sundial is a very unusual house. It has lots of character and catered for all our needs. Five bedrooms - very comfortable beds. Well equipped kitchen.

There are stunning views across the bay. The outside seating area was used at every opportunity.

Lyme Regis is a lovely old fashioned seaside town with lots to do for all age groups. We would recommend the French Lieutenant 's Bistro in Lyme and The Riverside Restaurant in West Bay for dinner. Should you want a stunning ice cream Millie's is the place.

We would certainly return.

A beautiful property in a fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

Such an interesting property, one that draws you in from its stunning facade. The views from the front rooms of the sea are beautiful. A wise place to put the kitchen on the first floor to enable you to see the sea from the kitchen table - a lovely sociable room to spend time altogether.

A pleasant walk from the town centre makes this a perfect place to stay for a short break.

A wonderful family get together and celebration

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying in the iconic Sundial and it was the perfect setting for a large family party. The weather lent a hand and we woke each day to the view of perfect skies over an empty beach.

Just lovely.
