Lyme Regis is undoubtedly one of England’s
most precious pockets of nature and a place simply filled
to the brim with charm and beauty. Blessed with breathtaking
coastlines and countryside, which are among the finest to
be discovered anywhere in the world, the region is perhaps
most famed for its geology and magnificent fossil finds.
Mariners Hotel offers superb accommodation in Lyme Regis.
A visit to this magical destination, with its rich and compelling
history, will thoroughly delight you with one enchanting
experience after another. Officially designated as an ‘Area
of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, every day brings the
promise of a new adventure, and the whole place is sure
to keep you enthralled for however long you stay.
The quaint and captivating essence of Lyme Regis is perfectly
embodied in the Mariners Hotel. Formerly a Coaching Inn,
this charismatic 17th century building has been lovingly
renovated to showcase everything that makes this part of
the country so special.
The hotel is a true celebration of interior design, where
old meets new and contemporary fittings and the latest technology
blend seamlessly with majestic period features. There are
14 comfortable guest rooms – all en-suite –
and many boast inspiring views of the sea.
The building is drenched in a rich and absorbing history.
Beatrix Potter was inspired to write ‘The Tale of
Little Pig Robinson’ while staying at the hotel when
she was just 17. And many of her illustrations in the book
are based on the spectacular scenery she encountered while
visiting Lyme Regis and the neighbouring towns and regions.
Beatrix Potter isn’t the only
historically important figure to have stayed in the hotel.
In 1805 the three Philpot sisters moved to the area and
lived in the building while collecting fossils, for which
they later became famous. They were great friends with Mary
Anning – probably the most renowned female geologist
of all time – and there is now a museum in the town
dedicated to their discoveries.
Nestled in the heart of the town, the Mariners Hotel is
the perfect place to relax, unwind and plan your exploration
of Lyme Regis and the surrounding region. Whether you are
looking for a couple of easy-going days, or maybe a longer-term
holiday, the hotel and its staff will go to every possible
length to ensure that your stay is one to cherish and remember.
So if you are looking for a hotel or B & B in Lyme Regis,
why not plan a visit? We hope it will be one of many.
