You’ll find an easy, open-plan layout here, and you can use all the rooms as you like, so get your book and spend an hour on the sofa, wander into the kitchen and see what Lyn’s up to or have a drink on the terrace. Bedrooms and bathrooms have all the trimmings, from robes to Bramley goodies, and you can book treatments.
Lyn makes a cake every day for the breakfast table. Enjoy home-toasted granola too, along with freshly ground coffee and seasonal juices, perhaps smoked salmon and eggs on Aga sourdough or a full Dorset with bacon and sausages from the organic farm down the road, homemade baked beans, pancakes and more.
Lyme will keep you busy but if you want to venture further then visit pretty fishing villages Beer and Branscombe (10 minutes); or Bridport with its bustling Saturday market (20 minutes). Walk up Golden Cap (the south coast’s highest point and with the loveliest views) from Eype (15 minutes) and end up at Seatown’s Anchor Inn.
