We’re so excited to have been picked out as one of The Sunday Times Top 10 B&Bs. They even printed our picture…

Dorset House (C)

Dorset House (C) (Matt Austin)

Dorset House, Dorset
Mark Hix may rule the restaurant scene in Lyme Regis, but for our money, this Regency villa in the coastal town is streets ahead of his townhouse B&B. The owner, Lyn Martin, a former communications manager for Jaguar, fell in love with Lyme and decided to change down a gear. The sitting room has waxed floorboards, a woodburner and an honesty bar. The five bedroomsare decorated in Farrow & Ball tones, with vintage pieces and smart ensuites— you can see Golden Cap hill from the shower in Sea View. Breakfast is particularly indulgent: homemade almond and honey cake, and blueberry muffins, should certainly top up your energy levels before you hit the Jurassic Coast.
