Overview

About the property

Riverside cottage in Lyme Regis, Dorset - Peaceful location on the Wessex Ridgeway, With Terraced Garden And Sun Room Overlooking River

Overlooking the River Lym, Homestead is a wooden cabin built in 1915 and recently refurbished to a high standard. This cosy and comfortable home, retaining much of its original charm, provides a perfect base for holidays in Lyme Regis. Footpaths along the tranquil River Lym provide an attractive and easy walk to the seafront, shops, pubs and restaurants, or, heading upstream, walking routes in the beautiful surrounding countryside including the Wessex Ridgeway long distance route. The living room is cosy and comfortable, with a wood-burning stove. There is a sun room at the front of the property providing a lovely spot for relaxing, looking at the river, and watching the world go by. Off-road parking for a medium sized car is available on the property's driveway. Please note the access is awkward. Larger vehicles can be parked nearby. Parents of young children should note the terraced garden and proximity of the river. Friday changeover only April to October. Sorry we do not take dogs. Our website www.HomeSteadLymeRegis.co.uk

About Sheena Le Bas

We moved to Lyme Regis from rural Derbyshire in 2010 to be closer to family and the beautiful Dorset coast. Homestead is a family venture, owned by my mother and managed by myself and husband Ben with assistance from our three girls and various friends and family. This is an entirely new undertaking for our family and we are excited about sharing Homestead with visitors and giving more people the opportunity to visit this beautiful corner of the England.

Sheena Le Bas purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Sheena Le Bas chose Lyme Regis and West Dorset

Homestead is only 5 minutes from our own home in Lyme Regis; a place that we love sharing with friends and family when they come to visit.

Smartly decorated and superbly equipped cottage in lovely quiet convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Nice, bright, clean cottage with plenty of space for our family of four. We had everything we needed and were very content and comfortable. A real home from home.

The location was excellent - on a quiet lane next to the little river - with a leisurely level walk into town and to the beaches and a lovely walk the other way upstream into the countryside. The children appreciated the brilliant play park only a five-minute walk away too.

All communications with owner and housekeeper were great.

Lyme Regis is a fabulous place to spend a fun and relaxing couple of weeks. Varied beaches (though the sandy beach was packed!) for fossil hunting, rock-pooling and wave-chasing; lots of great places to eat (yummy ice creams) and things to do (eg, mini-golf, museums, the mill, shopping, walking, amusement arcade).

We were sad to come home, but happy that we'd had such a great holiday!

Beautifully presented property in a lovely location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely property, beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. The parking access was a little difficult but then parking in Lyme is not easy anyway.

The location was lovely with the river Lym running in front of the property and only a short walk to the beach and amenities.

There was also a lovely riverside walk up to Uplyme. We enjoyed a relaxing week and spent time sitting in the conservatory watching the world go by. Thanks Sheena.

Lovely location and a lovely place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was more than we could have hoped, everything we needed and more. Made for a really lovely break, with the added bonus of a really cosy log fire. A real home from home. Location was just a short scenic walk along the river into Lyme. Perfect.

Fantastic, clean & well located property

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house; well furnished; clean & tidy. Everything thought about! Lovely little bolt-hole, close to the centre of Lyme! Parking challenging.....but easy to leave the car for a week & potter! A real break from the Hurley-burley of every day life! The kids loved it too! Thanks Sheena & Fiona. We will be back! Xxx
