Part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site, and surrounded by areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Lyme Regis is famous for its fossils, an historic old town, the Cobb, and beautiful beaches. It’s a destination for food lovers, with Hugh Fearnly-Whittingstall’s River Cottage HQ and Mark Hix’s Oyster & Fish House both within walking distance.

Only three hours from London or the Midlands, Uplyme and Lyme Regis are a relaxing oasis on the Dorset and Devon border.
