Nearest pub

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A typical English village pub with black beams and brass ornaments on the wall. It serves locally brewed ales and reasonably priced food, including a good ol' roast on a Sunday. The front courtyard features a boules piste and Axe Valley views, and the beer garden out back is enclosed to keep the dogs and children contained.

Just a few minutes up the road, a really friendly pub and very good food

Nearest beach

Lyme Regis is graced with a number of lovely beaches. A mixture of sand and pebble beaches, Church Beach and Cobb Beach are the most central and are easily accessible from the town. Most are lifeguarded in the summer, although dog restrictions vary. Pick your favourite beach or hop from one to another, Lyme Regis' historic town and enchanting scenery are perfect for clearing the mind and lifting the spirits.

Nearest walk

An appealing spot for walkers, photographers, bird watchers or anyone wanting to escape into nature. With beautiful views across the Axe Valley. Catch a sunset over one of the fishing lakes.

Nearest town

Although easy to access, this little town is unspoilt and displays historic charm alongside riverside walks with dog friendly pubs and a tram station, all within three miles of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Gateway at Seaton. Have a day out to the National Trust's Shute Barton, nearby, or head out to the Blackdown Hills. You're also near enough to Beer, Lyme Regis, Sidmouth and the Cathedral City of Exeter.

Awash with history, Lyme Regis is an integral part of Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast; guided fossil hunting tours are a popular way to discover the rich geological history of the area. Literary history is equally important to Lyme Regis; the unique harbour, known as ‘The Cobb’ was immortalised by John Fowles in his novel ‘The French Lieutenant’s Woman’ and Thomas Hardy set many of his novels in the area.

Lyme Regis

Well worth a visit to one of our favourite places in Dorset. Lovely independent shops and always walk around the Cob. The high street is a must and plenty of parking.
If you take your dog visit the Pug and Puffin for many doggy things.

Excellent parking very difficult in good weather but park and ride regular and drops off in good position. Beach very crowded and deckchairs etc. in short supply.

This is a really brilliant bustling seaside town. The thing to be aware of before making the trip is that summertime parking is a challenge. We combat this by getting there early or late. Early means before about tenish, and you're guaranteed easy parking. A late visit for fish and chips on the beach watching the sun go down is brilliant too. The town has great shops to browse, and a huge range of pubs, restaurants and other eateries. There's always something going on, with Lifeboat week in late July being a particularly good event, with a Red Arrows fly by ending the week in style. There's a sandy section for the kids near the cob, but otherwise pebbly. Beach huts line the far end of the beach. You can walk to Charmouth from Lyme Regis and enjoy the amazing fossil hunting along the way.

Lyme Regis

Okay but not a lot to do there, we walked out on the Cobb which was a little disappointing and wandered around the town.We were going to eat in the Hix restaurant but after searching reviews we decided to give it a miss, the service seemed hit and miss and had some less than complimentary reviews about poor service, quality of food, service charges etc. Seems you might just be paying for a name here rather than service. We do not mind paying for quality food but will not dine at a place that charges and does not back up its costs.There is a cheese shop down one of the side streets (The Town Mill) that has a great variety of cheeses but beware you are not allowed to touch them (even the wrapped & priced ones) you have to stand there looking only and then ask for everything you want to buy!

Dorset seaside town

A sandy beach - rare on this stretch of coast - and if not beach weather always something interesting to do and see. Fossil hunting, mackerel fishing and other boat trips, walking in the French Lieutenant's Woman's steps on the cobb, regular events like the jazz festival, town band performances , excellent range of eating places...

Old fashioned sea-side charm

Lyme is the most beautiful place to visit, whether it is sunny or pouring down with rain. Last time we visited it was a damp cold day in October, but the town still shone. Ideal for families as you can choose from pebble or sandy bits of beach. The cobb is great for grandparents who wish to reminisce about the French Lieutenant's Woman. For those with twenty thousand pounds to spare, you might be able to snap up the odd beach hut! For mums and daughters and anyone else who likes pottering, the shops in the town are delightful with delis, independent bookstores, Joules and White Stuff clothing and quirky giftshops.

Set right on the sea front next to the famous Cobb, enjoy homemade freshly prepared food either in the restaurant, veranda or the private beach area. Children are well catered for.

Seaton Tramway

A great trip for the family, our 4 year old son loved it. If you get there early, it is possible to have unlimited trips for the day for only £1 extra. It takes 25mins each way from Seaton to Colyton. It is probably worthwhile factoring in some time to walk around both Seaton and Colyton.

Seaton Tramway

It was great fun. Do take it from Colyton to Seaton - and back - the parking is free at that end. Allow at least a couple of hours at Seaton - even more if the weather is really good.

Scenic tram rides

Short but sweet - especially when you stop for refeshment at the flower bedecked platform at the Colyton end of the line. A good opportunity to birdwatch. Open air upper deck good fun for the kids - they don't feel the cold!

A lovely walk.

This is a lovely place to visit whether you choose to pay and walk around the grounds, as we have done, or just have something to eat and browse the garden centre. The food is excellent and walks peaceful. We have never been without coming away with some plants for our garden.

A gardeners paradise

A 10 acre garden which has been lovingly created by the family of an ex-dairy farmer. The garden has lots of interest, including the Millenium garden styled around a beautiful trickling stream and a large woodland garden including some of the biggest giant rhubarb we've ever seen. There is a great little tea room serving hard earned tea and cake after you've explored the gardens. There is a nursery selling plants reared at the gardens and other garden essentials. Everything we've bought from them has thrived, so they clearly take great care in what they produce. There is a large landscaping business run by their son attached to the gardens, with further stocks of shrubs and trees to explore.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Classic old-fashioned seaside charm. Little wooden changing huts line up on the beach in front of the striking white chalk cliffs. The town has been a fishing port since the 15th Century and many of the buildings are listed.

Pretty beach, fresh fish - catch your own mackerel boats if you like - and Pecorama - delightful gardens, model railway and regular childrens activites/events. Super cliff walk to Branscombe.

The beach is a lovely combination of children's paradise whilst retaining an element of a working seaside town with atmospheric fishing boats waiting to be taken out. Possibly one of the most enticing reasons for coming to Beer are the fresh fish stalls at the edge of the beach where you can pick up fresh crab, lobster and many other things in the catch of the day - a must for fish lovers! The Dolphin and the Anchor pubs deserve a mention for their food too.
