If you fancy a break in a laid-back resort full of history and nostalgic seaside attractions, Lyme Regis holiday cottages could be exactly what you are looking for. This historic town lies on the West Dorset coast, 25 miles east of Exeter. Nicknamed ‘the Pearl of Dorset’, it is famous for the fossils which are found on its cliffs and beach, on the rugged Jurassic Coast. From your holiday cottage in Lyme Regis, wander down to the seafront, where the town’s most famous landmark, the Cobb, is located. This sweeping harbour wall has appeared in several novels and films, including Jane Austen’s Persuasion and The French Lieutenant’s Woman. In the tangle of narrow streets behind the harbour, you will find a mix of independent shops, cosy pubs and restaurants, many of which serve seafood fresh from the harbour. With Regatta and Carnival Week, a renowned jazz festival and fossil festival, there is no shortage of events to enjoy on self-catering holidays in Lyme Regis.
