About Jill Sharp

I live with my partner here in Eype and we have been fortunate to have Sealark our chalet which is right next to the beach on a small private site of only 13 chalets. We also have The Hideaway which is "hidden" in our back garden and has lovely countryside views, but still only a few hundred yards away from the beach. Being able to let others come and enjoy our chalet and the surrounding areas is a bonus for us. You can be assured that the property will be clean and fresh upon your arrival.If you are looking for peace and relaxation with wonderful views, then come and stay with us.

Why Jill Sharp chose Lyme Regis and West Dorset

Quiet, peaceful and secluded.

What makes this chalet unique

Peace and quiet with wonderful country side views, yet only 2 minutes from the beach. The Hideaway has a very large decking area and also a grassed area, plenty of room to sit and relax without any neighbours watching over you.

Lovely peaceful hideaway!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a weeks stay at the hideaway over the Easter holidays. We found it very clean and organised and very peaceful. There were lots of walks on the doorstep and the beach just down the road.

I would mention that the access from the road is very steep with an awkward bend and norrow walls. My fully loaded MPV struggled to get through. This made us unsure about driving out and about because we didn't want to have to try it again. We thought access would have been better through the caravan park next door but the guy there was a bit reluctant to help. I also had no mobile signal (if this is something you rely on it may be worth knowing). I could get some signal at the top of the nearby hills. That said, it was actually quite nice to be cut off from the real world for a bit and have to walk everywhere. Keep a spare tea towel handy to wave in front of the smoke alarm when cooking or frying as it's located above the oven which seemed to set it off every time we opened it. Other than that a lovely and comfortable place to relax. We all had a great week. Our girls and dog enjoyed the beach and the sea and as it's only a few feet away it was lovely to be able to visit without any hassle.

Thanks for your hospitality and the wine from your vineyard, which was lovely with Easter dinner.

This truly is a hideaway!

Loved our week away

  • 4 of 5

This lovely cabin is tucked away behind cottages down a narrow, picturesque Lane which leads down to a beautiful pebble beach.

First impressions were that it was very clean and tastefully decorated. The main bedroom has an on suite which is handy and the second bedroom easily had enough room for a travel cot to be set up in between the beds.

Well appointed kitchen, though the number of cups was unnecessary and could have done with a bigger bread board and colander! Esp if you were cooking for 4! Also, a little more cupboard space for you to put your own food/items would be useful.

Great to have a few essentials left ready for us and the bottle of wine was a nice touch.

The decking was very popular with my toddler who was able to run about safely contained but the grass area was not really suitable for him due to the stinging nettles all the round the edge.

Useful leaflets for local attractions in the cottage and a selection of entertainment available. Wasger/drier and dishwasher very handy to have.

A couple of things that stopped it being 5 stars:

Despite being listed, the internet was unusable (when signal was available) due to it not being 'secure'. (3g was almost non existent in the area as well so be aware if you use it to look up things to do in the area and go prepared) This is something I look for when booking so it was a bit disappointing.

Instructions for recycling and rubbish were unclear and didn't seem to relate to what was in place bin wise.

Having to take a travel cot and high chair was a bit of a pain, especially as there seems to be room in the cabin for them to be stored. This would have been a real bonus to have there.

Communication from owner was swift and helpful with queries answered in a timely fashion.

The area is beautiful and perfect for visiting local attractions.

I can definitely recommend The Hideaway and despite some of the small issues, would still visit again!
