About the property

Apartment in Lyme Regis, Dorset, England - With 270 Degree Panoramic Views Of The Harbour,this High Spec Apartment Is 15sec Walk From 2 Beaches

The apartment at 1 Channel View is in the unique position of being within the harbour area and Lyme Regis' famous seafront. This newly refurbished, high spec boutique apartment sits as a gem in Lyme's world heritage coastal site, enjoying 270 degree panoramic views looking out over the historic harbour, The Cobb, and the beach. Over Lyme Bay, to the east, at night the twinkling lights of Weymouth some 20 miles away can be viewed as the eye sweeps across the bay. The flashing lights from the lighthouse on Portland are seen, and most times of the day and night fishing boats and ships can be observed. Lyme is in an ideal position to explore the whole of Dorset either by car or along the South West Coast Path. Local activities in walking distance include excellent crabbing - the sea siders favourite sport, fishing trips, coastal and countryside hike, fossil hunting, diving, seafront pubs, Marine parade and theatre, crazy golf, local shops beside the residence and a number of restaurants. Celebrity chef Mark Hix's Oyster and Fish House fish restaurant is 5 minutes walk or in the summer they run a rickshaw taxi to and from the restaurant. River Cottage Canteen restaurant is 15 minutes drive away in Axminster. Positioned just 30 seconds walk from Lyme's two main beaches, Sandy Beach and Monmouth Beach, this tastefully appointed apartment sleeps five people with the option of an additional two. The London designer-led renovations have both restored the charm of the original building and incorporated modern facilities to ensure the maximum enjoyment and comfort for your stay. The stylish fitted kitchen opens out into the living/dining space. There are plenty of magnificent views over the sea. Each bedroom also has a balcony overlooking the harbour and back towards Monmouth Beach. Lyme's main town is a 6 minutes walk. You will find The Fisherman's Wife below your apartment which serves fabulous hand-dived scallops from Lyme Bay and freshly cut fries which people love!

Kindly note: the apartment is priced at £15.00 per person above 2 persons per night (children under 18 are not charged). If a four-legged friend is coming to stay the price will be charged at £30 a stay. When possible, we aim to greet you at the apartment.

About marie postles

Dear holidaymakers,

I am a designer and have spent much of this year refurbishing 1 Channel View to a high standard, very boutique, and with many unexpected extras for you to enjoy.

This apartment is owned by myself and my four children, Hector, Louis, Oscar and Freya. My parents lived here for over 30 years and it is somewhere we treasure with our hearts.

marie postles purchased this apartment in 1970

Why marie postles chose Lyme Regis and West Dorset

My parents bought this property to be next to the sea. As you gaze out of the window from the sitting room sofa, the seascape is beautiful and never the same twice.

What makes this apartment unique

You couldn't be closer to everything great that Lyme, the Jurassic Coast and The Cobb has to offer.

Wonderful location but attention to detail needed

  • 3 of 5

This property is in a great location with wonderful views of Lyme harbour and bay. We are sure that it was lovely when first marketed and the bed was comfortable.. However, it is showing signs of wear you wouldn't expect at the price. It also needed a good clean with much more attention needed in the kitchen area especially: dirt round edges of the hob for instance and lots of grubby marks that came off with a bit of effort. The sofa was very shabby with dog and human hairs evident, which didn't encourage you to relax and watch the world go by outside. Also someone else's hair was in the shower. We are not OCD but this was not acceptable. There is no dedicated parking and the private parking about a hundred yards away is £9 a day. We were initially concerned about the fish and chip shop below but there was no noise and no smell. A comprehensive printed list of instructions would be better than the hand written notes scattered round the place.

The property is in a wonderful location, very close to the Cobb.

  • 4 of 5

The property is in a wonderful location, very close to the Cobb. We had a short break, which we enjoyed. Great views from the windows (downside is you feel very exposed) and couldn't smell fish from the shop below which we thought we might.

Really, it is a place for 2 bed-sharing adults and children, rather than 2 adults wanting separate rooms. Well-equipped though, so we had everything we needed for our short stay, and it was welcoming. Parking nearby (private, cheaper than public long stay) cost £9 a night so you'd need to factor it in to your holiday. The price reflected the location, but plenty of hot water, heating, etc., which made it a pleasant short vacation.
