After just one visit you will understand precisely why Lyme Regis is affectionately known as the ‘Pearl of Dorset’. Unspoiled, dramatic and abundant with fossils and historical character, it is a place that will live on in your memory. It is the kind of dreamy destination that will tempt you back to enjoy its treasures time and time again.
In Lyme Regis itself there is something to surprise you around every corner. Whether it’s exploring the enchanting network of back streets that twist and thread through the town, or simply strolling along the famous Cobb harbour wall – immortalised in John Fowles’ classic novel, The French Lieutenant's Woman – Lyme Regis will leave an unforgettable stamp on your heart and soul.
Why not simply sit, gaze across the bay and let your mind wander as you lose yourself in the gentle comings and goings of the fishing boats? Or, if you’re feeling a little more active, head to the awesome beaches where you can start to uncover the wonders of the ‘Jurassic Coast’ – a stretch of stunning coastline officially recognised as a World Heritage Site. And, if you want to be even more adventurous, take a trip to the west of Lyme Regis where you’ll discover the Undercliff National Nature Reserve. Only accessible by foot, this wild and beautiful part of the coast will take you on a magical journey where you’ll encounter rare orchids and ferns, as well as nightingales and maybe even lesser spotted woodpeckers. Heritage Coast footpaths also snake for mile upon mile to both the east and west of the picturesque town. Few places can offer you as many opportunities to feel so incredibly free.
For a destination filled with an endless choice of things to see and do – however active or relaxed you want to be – there is no more valuable gem than Lyme Regis: the ‘Pearl of Dorset’. Say hello to paradise, and enjoy the best accommodation in Lyme Regis at the Mariners Hotel.
