The Retreat is a luxurious self-catering cottage in an Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty only two miles from Lyme Regis. It is one of two award-winning holiday properties on-site and furnished with couples in mind. The cottage has a private garden with an outdoor hot tub and a dedicated EV charging point. It's an idyllic spot where couples can escape for a week or a short break, relaxing in a gorgeous rural location a few miles from the UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coast.
Lyme Regis is a five-minute drive from the cottage. It's an area with a broad appeal. Gourmands come here for the succulent oysters, fresh fish, and the opportunity to visit the River Cottage Kitchen for its delicious local menu and extensive choice of cookery classes. Instead of impersonal supermarkets, discover the delights of the Lyme Bay Winery and excellent farm shops where you can choose ingredients to cook in the cottage's well-equipped kitchen. Walkers and cyclists appreciate the mix of coast and countryside with miles of footpaths and trails for easy exploration.
The Retreat is so peaceful yet wonderfully convenient for beaches and attractions. You can spend day trips making the most of the spectacular beaches and enjoy swimming, surfing, paddleboarding and sunbathing only a few miles from the door. Walk along the South West Coast Path, go fossilling for fossils with an expert or see them in situ at the Undercliffs National Nature Reserve. Local attractions include the medieval monastery and gardens at Forde Abbey, the Donkey Sanctuary at Sidmouth, and Axe Valley Bird and Animal Park. Guests love all the thoughtful touches that make The Retreat such a wonderful hideaway where they can enjoy focusing on each other without the distractions of daily life.
