About Kim Harvey

We bought No 11 in 2004 as a little asbestos shack. We demolished it and put up the building as it is today. It has been constructed using the most energy efficient means and a specification that lifeboat houses use to combat the elements. Its old shack had history dating back to the second world war when it used to be the tea place for the home guard whilst guarding the shores.

Kim Harvey purchased this chalet in 2004

Why Kim Harvey chose Lyme Regis and West Dorset

We came across the auction details in the local press. We came to look at the site and were so taken with the area we decided to buy. The plot we picked felt best served to fit in the type of building we wanted to erect. We have stayed here in all weathers and it is as idyllic in each season. There is always so much to explore without even having to get the car out.

What makes this chalet unique

Its position to the Jurassic Coast I would say is the best benefit. The beach is never crowded so you can always guarantee plenty of space. The views of the surrounding countryside as well is amazing especially if you are into wildlife.

Guestbook comments from the owner

When we reached the chalet we seemed to immediately relax. We will return.



We arrived in the dark so did not see the beautiful surroundings of the sea and cliffs till morning. It is an idyllic place. We have walked for miles and experienced some truly lovely sights and food. Will not hesitate to come back.

Comfortable, peaceful and well-equipped

  • 4 of 5

A three night stay as my birthday treat bought us to Eype once again. We come every year as its my favourite place and has been since I first came in 1983. Always makes us feel so relaxed being by the sea and those spectacular cliffs.

This was our first stay at No 11 and we were impressed with the decor and spaciousness. The only negative point was the feeble shower in the beautifully furnished bathroom.

First stop, a walk over Thorncombe Beacon to The Anchor pub then evening meal at The New Inn, Eype. Enjoyed some lovely walks from the door and drive over to Charmouth for a muddy ramble ending with a nice lunch in one of the towns charming tea shops.

Kim the owner was easy to contact to sort issue with towels and also kindly returned my jumper that I left in the wardrobe.

This haven of tranquility is becoming more and more popular thanks in part to Broadchurch and I hope I'm still coming here in another 30 years time!

Really brilliant but ?

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location and the chalet but --The shower didn't work, and as mother of 2 young children + 2 young dogs i was unable to open the doors on a glorious weekend unless i put them all on lead first as there is no "private" space. I think there is room for improvement. I will go back but its hard work.

Superb location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a short break at the property. It is in a great location right on the coastal path. Dogs are welcome on the beach all year round which is a bonus. The cottage was extremely well equipped and we didn't want for anything. It was clean and spacious and we will definitely be back. Thank you

The chalet was lovely. Very clean and we'll equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Very pleased with no. 11. Everything you could possibly need was provided. It took a little while to work out how to get the heating on. It was very cold in there when we first went in, but once we got the heater in the living room to work it warmed up in a couple of hours. Comfy bed and beautiful bathroom, tho the heated rail took forever to warm up and never really got warm enough to heat the room, so quite chilly in there coming out of the Shower!

The chalet park was lovely and quiet as expected in December! But just what we needed. All in all we had a lovely break and would recommend it to our friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your lovely review. I am sorry about the towel rail and the chalet no being warm enough when you arrived. The heaters do normally warm it up pretty quickly but they should have been put on ready for you so apologies there. Thanks for mentioning about the towel rail. You were the first people in since the bathroom refit. I will get that looked at.

Good value

  • 4 of 5

Great long weekend. The accommodation was warm and snug. I will however say that the only downfall was no freezer!! Just an ice box in the under counter fridge.
