Lyme Regis and Charmouth Cottages

SPECIAL OFFER: 10% off any holidays taken at our West Dorset properties until the end of 2018!

Ever since Lyme Regis cabinetmaker’s daughter Mary Anning forced her way to richly deserved prominence in the world of 19th century palaeontology the town’s beaches and cliffs have been a magnet for fossil hunters. 

Known as the Pearl of Dorset, Lyme Regis combines iconic features such as the historic Cobb harbour, with stunning scenery and the ramshackle beauty of the town itself, which retains many of its Saxon and medieval lanes at its centre before giving way to more ordered streets as it expands up the hill.

In 1685 the Duke of Monmouth landed at Lyme Regis and raised an army with the intention of overthrowing his half-brother King James II. It didn’t end well for Monmouth who was beheaded or for his men – some 320 were sentenced to death and more than 800 transported as slaves to the West Indies.

Like Lyme, Charmouth has a long and bloody history – in Saxon times it was routinely preyed upon by Viking raiders and in one episode was the scene of an invasion of some 15,000 Danes. Mercifully its recent history is decidedly calmer and it found a special place in the affections of Jane Austen who, while living in Lyme Regis in 1804, wrote that Charmouth was “a nice place for sitting in unwearied contemplation”.
