Dorset House is a Bed and Breakfast overlooking the sea in Lyme Regis.

We’re lucky enough to call this beautiful Georgian building home – and we like you to feel that it’s your home from home while you’re here.

We win awards because we care.

We love to create new breakfast dishes with the abundent local produce. We’re passionate about our beautiful part of the country and can’t imagine living anywhere else – sharing how special Lyme Regis is with guests is the best part of our job. Walking and swimming the coastline are encouraged – muddy boots and sandy toes are very welcome. Fresh air beats technology in our book but you can curl up with a film of course.

But mostly we care about ensuring that you have an amazing, relaxing stay.

"Amazing 4 course breakfast" Clive B

The real highlight though is the amazing 4 course breakfast option, which delivers perfectly on taste, choice and nutritional value. You will struggle to find a better breakfast anywhere.

"It will not disappoint" Joanne

Lyme Regis is also great to explore with beaches, walks and restaurants!
It will not disappoint!! 

"Cosy and comfortable" Karen and Richard

This was our 4th visit and we are already booked for next year. The building has been beautifully restored , it’s so cosy and comfortable.
The bedrooms again have been beautifully decorated, the beds are very comfy and you always get an excellent night’s sleep

"A wonderful place to visit" Jo and Jim, Bristol UK

The minute you’re greeted at the door you feel yourself relax. Everything is calm & well thought out. The delicious aromas of home baking; the beautiful breakfasts, the cosy comfy beds & all the useful advice about local walks, restaurants & things to do we really appreciated. We also felt reassured by all the extra efforts to keep us safe in the current situation. Lyme Regis & Dorset House are a wonderful place to visit. Full of fresh air & fun!

Granola Recipe

We are often asked for our granola recipe and we’d love to hear from those of you that have made this at home too. The recipe can be used as a base to adjust to your taste – eg use hazlenuts if you prefer them to almonds – just keep the proportions the same and you should get a delicious crisp granola.

Why We Love UK B&B Holidays

As many people discovered last summer, a UK B&B holiday can be an amazing experience. Once we’ve mentally detached ourselves from the image of baking in the sunshine (although to be fair we did also manage that last summer!), the landscape, culture and variety of activities available to us in the UK make for a great holiday. And all with the added benefit of avoiding environmentally damaging air travel and supporting our local economies.

Shopping in Lyme Regis

We’re lucky to have a thriving high street in Lyme Regis and one of the consequences of lockdown has been for many of us to appreciate the job that our local shops do for us. Yes, the prices may be slightly higher, but that’s because these guys pay their taxes which ultimately comes back around. And the products and service are so much more individual in nature than the big stores.

With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of where we do our shopping. Hopefully it will inspire you to explore our local high street while you’re here.
