STOP PRESS - 5th January 2021
Further to the Prime Minister's announcement last night it is with regret that we must close Cliff Cottage until such time that it is considered safe for visitors to travel to Lyme Regis again. It is anticipated that the lockdown will last until February at least.
Bookings for 2021 are being accepted on the basis that we will be flexible with regard to rescheduling any stays that cannot go ahead due to Covid restrictions. At this stage the cottage is booked from 13th March - 17th April although that may change depending on whether or not those who have booked are able to travel and what the rules or guidelines are in the Spring. There is availability in April, May, June and early July but late July and all of August and most of September are fully booked.
We have the Visit England 'We're Good to Go' Industry Standard award which means that we have followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, have a Risk Assessment and thorough cleaning protocols in place.
Part of Lyme’s historic landscape since the early 1800’s, Cliff Cottage is one of the delightful pink cottages, set back off the seafront, in a perfect position overlooking beautiful Lyme Bay and the famous Cobb. Seconds away from the beach, the cottage also has easy access to the shops, galleries, cafés and pubs.
The cottage is simply and tastefully furnished, very well equipped and enjoys the added attractions of front and back gardens, a terrace and summerhouse. The cottage is warmed throughout by high performance, low energy, user friendly Xana plus radiators. The cottage and gardens are set into the hillside with steps leading from the upper level of Marine Parade up to the front door and steps in the front garden leading to the terrace where visitors can sunbathe, read, relax and wine and dine whilst enjoying the superb view of Lyme Bay. Garden furniture, BBQ and children’s beach toys are provided. The Rose Family have been sharing their treasured seaside ‘home from home’ with couples and families since 1994. All bookings are dealt with personally by Sue Rose and every effort is made to make sure that everything in the cottage is right for you.
