Description

Fairfield Cottage has glorious ocean views from the lawn and paddock area it shares with its partner property (Norwegian Lodge) and lovely sea views from the front bedrooms. And only a 10 minute walk down the hill to the shops, restaurants and beach of Lyme Regis. Built at the turn of the Century as servants’ quarters to the Fairfield Estate, the extension was constructed to take advantage of the superb coastal views. The panorama from the play paddock is truly magnificent and must be rated as one of the best coastal views in the county. There is also the added benefit of an additional parking spot nearer to the town and beach for convenience of access to amenities, (for the sole use of the guests), which makes this a great choice for a seaside holiday.

Within a ten minute walk, guests can meander down the hill to Lyme Regis bustling seafront and promenade. Often referred to as the ‘Pearl of Dorset’, Lyme Regis is well known for its literary association with Jane Austen as well as its diverse geology which people from across the world flock to in the hunt for fossils. The historic old town retains an olde worlde charm with small streets filled with galleries, boutique shops and famed gastro restaurants and cafés. Its sheltered south-facing beaches are safe for children and water sports enthusiasts alike with great fishing and leisure boat opportunities available from the Cobb harbour. For those who would like a change of scene and a day away from the beach, the surrounding rolling countryside, which is an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, boasts walking and cycling in abundance or perhaps while away a few days exploring pretty East Devon fishing villages such as Beer and Branscombe or head to the market town of Axminster to sample Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage Canteen.
