Around us

A stone’s throw from Lyme Regis; one of the Jurassic Coasts most famous coastal towns, boasting a micro-brewery,
the Marine Theatre & the setting for River Cottage’s fishing trips, from the world’s famous Cobb Harbor. The rugged coastline is magnificent & has been awarded World Heritage Site status, just the most magical setting.

Head along the Jurassic Coast and up the Golden Cap, the highest point on the south coast, on a wild & wonderful walk. For the more leisurely walkers or picnickers, the rolling Devon countryside &
Trinity Hill make the perfect setting for an afternoon stroll. Or just pop down to the beach to find yourself a fossil!

Foodies beware, you may roll out of Devon & Dorset... Foodies beware, you may roll out of Devon & Dorset... River Cottage, Hix, Tuckers Arms, The French Lieutenant's Bistro, The Millside & Lord Poulett Arms , are just a few of our local haunts.

English wine is highly under-rated, take a tour of Furleigh Estate & if you are not already, you will be converted. This is home to some of the country's best red, white, pink & sparkling.

The hustle & bustle of nearby market towns of Bridport & Honiton will totally overwhelm your senses. On a Saturday, the market is brimming with vintage, retro & antiques & all the cheeky dealers that are coming down from London to grab themselves a bargain... if you are a keen haggler this is the place to be. NB. Make sure you pop down to see Sharon at Old Albion, an absolute gem in this vintage paradise!

Clay pigeon shooting is one of our favourites, it is perfect to be enjoyed as a group, fabulous for beginners & the more experienced. But if you would really like to practice target shooting, The Tunnel Target Sports Centre is around the corner, where you can get to grips with semi-automatic rifles & pistols.

If you are here during the right time of year & prefer to take making wine & spirits into your own hands, you can head out on your own foraging for elderberries, damsons & sloes or take a guided foraging tour.

For the more adventurous, there are plenty of watersports to be had in Lyme Regis & West Bay, paddle boarding, swimming, surfing, kiteboarding, ribbing, sailing & deep sea fishing (if you are a natural & bring fish home with you we are more than happy to prepare it for you & stick it on the BBQ… weather permitting!)

We are here to help you plan a perfect getaway, so please don’t hesitate to ask & we will be more than happy to assist.
