Our Inspector's view
Lyme Regis has an enduring appeal and Dorset House provides an ideal base from which to explore this picturesque spot. Warm hospitality and the owners’ sense of pride are just two of the many reasons that guests leave here with reluctance. Quality is the hallmark, as reflected in the individually-styled bedrooms complete with Egyptian cotton bedding and goose down duvets – many rooms have sea views. Bathrooms are equally impressive with invigorating showers and cosseting robes. This happy house has a small lounge area and honesty bar that leads onto the veranda where wonderful breakfasts can be enjoyed on summer mornings; alternatively, the elegant dining room is the place to enjoy the locally sourced produce.Dietary requirements are catered for.

About the area
Dorset means rugged varied coastlines and high chalk downlands. Squeezed in among the cliffs and set amid some of Britain’s most beautiful scenery is a chain of picturesque villages and seaside towns. Along the coast you’ll find the Lulworth Ranges, which run from Kimmeridge Bay in the east to Lulworth Cove in the west. Together with a stretch of East Devon, this is Britain’s Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, noted for its layers of shale and numerous fossils embedded in the rock. Among the best-known natural landmarks on this stretch of the Dorset coast is Durdle Door, a rocky arch that has been shaped and sculpted to perfection by the elements. The whole area has the unmistakable stamp of prehistory.
Away from Dorset’s magical coastline lies a landscape with a very different character and atmosphere, but one that is no less appealing. Here, winding, hedge-lined country lanes lead beneath lush, green hilltops to snug, sleepy villages hidden from view and the wider world. The people of Dorset are justifiably proud of the achievements of Thomas Hardy, its most famous son, and much of the county is immortalised in his writing.
