Dear guests,

We reopened again on 17th May 2021, operating in a similar manner as we did previously (see strategy doc below). Since July 19th 2021, the government removed most restrictions, however, like many establishments, we didn't 'let things go'. In fact, we have continued to operate since then in our own new way, Covid-19 was an education and we've picked up on the benefits of it, but also removed the unnecessary restrictions that had high impact, such as limiting numbers etc.

If you have any questions or concerns on this matter (or anything else), please just call or e-mail us - we are listening!

We previously published a strategy document on how everything fits together within the property. This information is available below for reference.

Charnwood Location DETAIL:

Visitor information:

Lyme Regis, West Dorset  UK

Where Dorset meets Devon and the rolling countryside tumbles down to the sea nestles the fascinating town of Lyme Regis. For centuries sea travellers have sought the protection of its ancient  Cobb Harbour.

The town contains accommodation with bed and breakfast, hotels and self catering. Holidays and short breaks in the most visited region of England - the South West or West Country. A key gateway town to England's only natural World Heritage site the Jurassic coast - one of Europe's best fossiling and geological geomorphic beach and coasts.

Walking is varied with the South West Coastal Path and inland with the Wessex Ridgeway and the Liberty Trail.

Enjoy a relaxing break. The food and wine is the best with a multitude of restaurants and pubs
open for most of the year. Fish is a specialty.
