Located in Lyme Regis, Dorset
The Lobster Pot is a holiday chalet in Lyme Regis, Dorset, sleeping 3 in an elevated position above Monmouth Beach with far reaching views over Lyme Bay
The Lobster Pot has to be in one of the best locations on the whole of the south coast. Located in an elevated position above Monmouth Beach in Lyme Regis this is perhaps the ultimate couples seaside retreat. With a sheltered decked area and patio you can dine al fresco while enjoying the views over Lyme Bay, Golden Cap and even as far as Portland on a clear day. This Swedish designed log cabin is fully insulated so don't discount an off season visit where the coast can be very exciting and equally engaging as a hot summers week. The seafront promenade, shops, restaurants, pubs, cafes, tea rooms and gardens are all just a stone's throw from the chalet. There is so much to do in Lyme Regis you could ditch the car for the week until it was time to go home. Visit celebrity chef Mark Hix's Oyster and Seafood Restaurant, the town has The Philpot Museum described by Sir David Attenborough as "A delightful and remarkable museum, a gem", the Aquarium, The Town Mill, the Dinosaur Fossil Museum, boat tours of the area, a cinema, a theatre, fossil guided tours and walks aplenty as it sits on the South West Coast Path and of course mucking around on the sandy beach which consistently gets awarded a blue flag for water quality and environmental management.
The accommodation at The Lobster Pot comprises of a cosy living area with sea views, a 3 seater daybed with 4ft 6inch mattress and a fold out coffee table, chairs and a TV. Patio doors lead outside with roller blinds for privacy. The kitchen has a ceramic hob and electric oven, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave and a range of accessories and utensils. There is also a fold out breakfast bar and preparation area. The bathroom has a shower, basin and toilet. There is a single bed in a small bedroom to sleep a third person but for me this screams a couples retreat.
Outside is a decked area under cover and patio area with picnic bench and seating with storage and four beach chairs. There is parking for one car behind the chalet. Your fuel, power, bed linen and towels are all included in the price.
