About the property

Uplyme – Village location 1.5 miles from seaside town of Lyme Regis and beach.

A delightful, holiday property called Stamps Cottage newly-built on the grounds of the old post office in Uplyme. This quiet village is within walking distance of Lyme Regis (try the riverside walk) with its picturesque beach and harbour. The cottage has off street parking for two cars and is very close to the local bus stop.

Uniquely, Stamps Cottage can be rented with a beach hut which has deck chairs, sunbeds and tea and coffee facilities. Located on Monmouth Beach, the beach hut is a calm spot to unwind after a walk along the Southwest Coastal Path, a swim, fossil hunting or a fishing trip. At the rear of the beach hut is a car park and toilets.

Stamps Cottage has been furnished with the finest furniture and everything is brand new in 2015.

About Richard or Rachel Davey

We were married in 2014 and our wedding reception was four doors down in the field of the Talbot Arms pub. We love our cottage and plan to move here permanently when we retire. We hope you’ll love it too!

Richard or Rachel Davey purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Richard or Rachel Davey chose Uplyme

With its mild, temperate climate Lyme Bay is an ideal winter as well as summer holiday destination. The weather is temperate, by British standards and far warmer than many other places at a similar latitude owing to the influence of the Gulf Stream.

The Good Beach Guide provides ratings for all the beaches along the Lyme Bay coast and most achieve the highest award. You will find good food to eat at excellent seafood restaurants including Hix and River Cottage, welcoming village pubs and tasty fish and chip takeaways.

Lyme Bay is part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Many of the earliest discoveries of prehistoric remains were made by Mary Anning, the 19th century fossil hunter, in the area surrounding Lyme Regis. Today, cliff faces and rock falls continue to expose fossils and reveal up to 250 million years of history.

The wonderful South West Coast Path follows the contours of the Triassic and Jurassic coast from Studland in east Dorset, around Lyme Bay in west Dorset and east Devon, then along the south Devon and Cornwall coasts, back through north Devon to Minehead in Somerset.

What makes this cottage unique

Stamps Cottage is located in a lovely part of England and is quick and easy to get to from the M5. This newly-built property in Uplyme is just fours doors down for the pub which is the heart of the village and the coastal town of Lyme Regis is within walking distance. Uniquely, Stamps Cottage has its own optional Beach Hut on Monmouth Beach where you can complete your seaside holiday.

Fantastic Beach hut, cosy house

  • 3 of 5

We found the house a little too warm for our taste and we had to get used to the traffic at night. When we arrived there was some confusion as we were under the impression

that Bev would meet us with the key - she helped us get in and set up the children's bed and lent us a duvet and pillow.

The house is very Cosy and well stocked and clean.

Cosy cottage near Lyme Regis

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxing weekend in Stamps Cottage, it is in a perfect location in Uplyme, only a short walk along the river to Lyme Regis. We found the cottage spotlessly clean, very comfortable and warm and cosy. The beach hut was a bonus on Monmouth beach. We will definitely return and will recommend to family and friends.

Absolutely wonderful cottage. Beautifully maintained and presented and really well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Stamps cottage. It is beautifully furnished and has everything you need for a self catering stay.

Fantastic location as is just a short walk into lovely Lyme Regis.

The lovely housekeeper, Bev, contacted us beforehand to ask which bedroom we would like their travel cot set up in so everything was ready when we arrived. As we were travelling with our 6 month old daughter that was really helpful.

Would definitely recommend a stay here. Just wish we could have stayed longer!

Owner's Response: Ahh that's really nice of you. I've just cleaned the cottage and I have to say it just needed a light clean as you kept it beautiful. Richard and I are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon. Repeat customers get a 10% discount and a bottle of bubbly on return! So please mention you are a returning guest. Great feedback about Bev who's attention to detail can make all the difference! Best wishes Rachel, Richard and Bev!

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Great location for the river walk to Lyme and village pub is only 50 metres away with great food and a friendly vibe.

THe cottage is spotlessly clean and very comfortable and the log burner is the icing on the cake.

WE had two sunny days on our 3 night stay and made full use of the beach hut which has fantastic views of the golden cap and coastline.

WE will return in the summer to Stamp Cottage. IT was a fantastic and enjoyable break and we can't wait to come back.
